Poe Dameron: Free Fall
By Alex Segura
I received a free copy of Poe Dameron: Free Fall from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
Learn more about the dashing hero from the new Star Wars films! Telling a story hinted at in The Rise of Skywalker….
It’s been a few years since Poe’s mother passed away, and Poe and his father, who was a pilot for the Rebellion, have had more and more trouble connecting. Not sure what he wants to do with his life, teenage Poe runs away from home to find adventure, and to figure out what kind of man he is meant to be.
Summary from Goodreads.
If you enjoyed Poe Dameron’s mysterious past being partially uncovered in The Rise Of Skywalker, then Poe Dameron: Free Fall will give you a more in-depth into his past.
Poe Dameron: Free Fall seemed to be aimed at more the Young Adult age group form the writing style; but don’t let that stop you from a good background story book. In the sequel Star Wars trilogy, Poe always came across to me as a clean cut guy who was honourable and always did the right thing. Then in The Rise of Skywalker we find out that before he joined the Resistance, he was not the clean cut guy that he seemed to be.
Poe is 16 in Free Fall, but at time he did not act like a typical 16 year old would. But then again I do not have the ability to travel around the galaxy as freely as they are able to so it is possible that they mature quicker than me. That being said it felt like there was forced conflict for conflict sakes and not because there was a driving force for what needed to occur.
While this is a fun and very easy read, I wish that there had been more substance to this story. It just felt like it was missing something, which just might not have been able to be explored in the Young Adult genre. Poe is such an interesting character in the movies and I hope that more books about him come out expand on his background.
Overall an enjoyable read that most will enjoy.
