Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

rogue-one

Friday Rogue One was released. This story is essentially Episode 3.9 in the StarWars franchise. My awesome boss once again rented a theater for the entire company and we got to see the movie on opening day for free! Yes I have the best boss in the entire world. I don’t say this because I think he will read my blog, as I doubt he will ever see this post. I say it because I do have a great boss.

I thoroughly enjoyed Rogue One, and although I am not of the opinion that it is one of the best Star Wars movies, it does rate above the prequels. My favorites are still The Empire Strikes back and Force Awakens. I definitely rank this a Must See movie at 4.5 star rating.

four and a half stars

Yes,  if you continue reading this post will contain spoilers. If you haven’t seen Rogue One, I highly suggest you not read this post further. Additionally, I highly recommend reading Catalyst (or listening on Audible) before seeing the movie as it is episode 3.5/3.7ish in the time line and explains much of what is missing in the movie, and gives you a better insight into some of the choices made by characters such as Galen Erso, Orson Krennic and Jyn Erso. It also gives you a good look at Orson Krennic our bad guy for Rogue One.

Freed (Phoebe Meadows book 2) by Amanda Carlson

Phoebe hasn’t had it easy since being struck. She’s been tossed through the 9 realms, and along the way found Fenrir (hunka hunka wolf) her boyfriend and Tyr (her half brother). Life at the Valkyrie Stronghold hasn’t been a cake walk either, although she’s getting stronger and learning to fight. When an old friend comes and tells her that if she doesn’t move quickly all chances of getting her mother back will be lost, yet more adventures come her way.

Phoebe’s ability to inspire loyalty among those she meets is amazing and she has a knack of finding the people she needs to succeed in her tasks. In this book we meet a whage (White Mage), a Milf (Not what you think it is), and Baldur the Norse god of light.

Again Amanda seamlessly wove mythology into our world, and you barely notice the liberties she took. You really have to know your (Norse) mythology to catch the inconsistencies.

You will love the antics Phoebe gets into and I loved the ending.

I do wonder if we meet Hermod in the next book.

Must read. 5 Stars
