Star Wars: Phasma by Delilah S. Dawson (September 1, 2017 by Del Rey)
For me, Star Wars fever is a chronic disease so you’ll always find me looking forward to the next canon novel release. I’m especially excited about this one though, for a couple of reasons. Captain Phasma is a fascinating character but little is known about her, and her appearances in the new official canon so far have been very brief and few. Even the book’s description is frustratingly vague, so this should be very interesting indeed. Second, I’m a fan of Delilah S. Dawson, and this is her first full-length Star Wars novel. After the great fun I had with her short story Star Wars: The Perfect Weapon, I’m looking forward to reading more of her work in this universe.
One of the most cunning and merciless officers of the First Order, Captain Phasma commands the favor of her superiors, the respect of her peers, and the terror of her enemies. But for all her renown, Phasma remains as virtually unknown as the impassive expression on her gleaming chrome helmet. Now, an adversary is bent on unearthing her mysterious origins—and exposing a secret she guards as zealously and ruthlessly as she serves her masters.”
