Decades apart can alter friendships forever, but sometimes, that absence makes the reunion all the sweeter. A Crash of Fate brings us into the minds and lives of Izzy and Jules as they rekindle their relationship on the streets of Batuu years after the childhood their shared together.

Love, adventure, fear, and excitement swirl effortlessly through this novel as the pair tries to stay one step ahead of those who would wish them harm, and the sanctuary that they seek may be right in each other's harms. A spiritual successor to Lost Stars, A Crash of Fate shows us how the fire of passion can burn just as hot as the engine of a pod racer.

Publisher's Summary

Izzy and Jules were childhood friends, climbing the spires of Batuu, inventing silly games, and dreaming of adventures they would share one day. Then, Izzy’s family left abruptly, without even a chance to say goodbye. Izzy’s life became one of constant motion, traveling from one world to the next, until her parents were killed and she became a low-level smuggler to make ends meet. Jules remained on Batuu, eventually becoming a farmer like his father, but always yearning for something more.

Now, thirteen years after she left, Izzy is returning to Batuu. She’s been hired to deliver a mysterious parcel, and she just wants to finish the job and get gone. But upon arrival at Black Spire Outpost she runs smack into the one person who still means something to her after all this time: Jules.

The attraction between them is immediate, yet despite Jules seeming to be everything she’s ever needed, Izzy hesitates. How can she drag this good-hearted man into the perilous life she’s chosen?

Jules has been trying to figure out his future, but now all he knows for certain is that he wants to be with Izzy. How can he convince her to take a chance on someone who’s never left the safety of his homeworld?

When Izzy’s job goes wrong, the two childhood friends find themselves on the run. And all their secrets will be revealed as they fight to stay alive…

I went into this book knowing that it exists to promote the Galaxy's Edge theme park. Despite that, it still felt like a natural book rather than a piece of heavy marketing material. Even though it didn't feel like I was reading an elaborate advertisement, A Crash of Fate still succeeded in getting me excited for my trip to the park next year with its fun story. The characters and environment in the novel were so charming and intriguing that I'm hoping to see some of these elements for myself.

This book is an awesome example of how the EU can be used as a backdrop for some truly unique original characters. While it did take me a little bit of time to become truly invested, by the end of the story my feelings towards the characters were tied up with them for every twist and turn. I can say with confidence that the writing of this book is every bit as beautiful as the artwork on the cover.

There's just something about YA books in Star Wars canon that, so far, seem to hit all the sweet spots. Take two young people trying to each find their way in the galaxy only to fall in love in the process -- and give them a galactic threat to battle together -- and you have yourself the perfect recipe for a masterpiece. This book followed a formula we've come to love (Lost Stars, anyone?) but did not disappoint. It was entertaining. The characters were interesting enough that you needed to keep turning pages to get to know them better. It is the kind of book you'll want to read from start to finish in one sitting. Don't miss out on this wonderful adventure!
