    A very disappointing book. Personally I think there was a huge waste of potential. The story?s main characters are Rose and Paige Tico. There are cameos from general Leia and Vice Admiral Holdo, and there side characters of Hammer (heavy bomber/Star fortress). There is not much go...

    sucks that SOMEONE had already used the title 'rose under fire', smh ...

    Dnf at 55% I just couldn?t force myself to care which makes me sad because I really wanted to like it, I wanted to know more about Rose. ...

    After TLJ, I was like, I really want a Tico sisters book. Well past Christy is smart...she had preordered this book and it showed up yesterday. So great. Finished it from the time I woke up this morning! ...

    Cobalt Squadron is a short YA novel that describes a mission undertaken by these Resistance fighters (think of the Berlin Airlift) that ends up coinciding with the First Order's attack on the Hosnian System. The story ends with the squadron following Vice Admiral Holdo as she goes to a...

    Obvious lead in is obvious. Clearly a book designed to give is background info on Rose, who I an quite fond of. They damn well better not make her a love interest of Finn. Because Finn and Poe belong together....anyway. Good background on Rose. An interesting story....still does...

    3.5 stars. I confess: I loved the Last Jedi, but don't hold it against me. (That's a discussion for another time!) That said, I love teading more about Paige and Rose (who I found to be an endearing character in the film). But was this the greatest SW novel ever written? Not by ...

    Awww my heart ? it was really nice reading about Paige and Rose, understand their background and relationship, what led them to be where they were on The Last Jedi. A really nice short novel ...

    I love the Tico sisters, but I am unfortunately reminded that I find Elizabeth Wein to be an incredibly boring writer. ...

    Ahhh, I loved this book so much! I listened to the audiobook because it was narrated by Kelly Marie Tran, and her narration combined with the fantastic, emotional storytelling made for a great read! This story helps connect Rose, her sister Paige, and?surprisingly?Amilyn Holdo ...

    Ich bin ein großer Fan des aktuell noch neusten Star Wars Films ?The Last Jedi?. Passend zum Film kam eine ganze Reihe neuer Star Wars Bücher raus, die begeisterte Fans mit neuen Infos rund um den Film versorgen. Die Kobalt-Staffel ist eines davon und sofern ihr diese Rezension a...

    3.5 stars. The mission/plot of the story was okay but the book shines in the scenes between Rose and Paige, when we get a chance to see how devoted to and protective of each other they are (were). Because The Last Jedi just wasn?t sad enough. Will someone please hug Rose for me?! G...

    Not as tension-filled as I was hoping, though it was wonderful to focus on Rose and her older sister Paige and their close and loving relationship. Most of the story?s action takes place while a squadron of Star Fortresses (those ridiculous looking bombers in Last Jedi) make secret d...

    I really didn?t care for this book. It was like the X-Wing books in the Legends where there is just a lot of fighting in space. Reading that isn?t like seeing it. If that is enjoyable then the book was okay. The only thing that was great was Roses? backstory and how she relates t...

    Just ok ...

    This took me far too long to get through than a lightweight children's Star Wars novel ought to. Perhaps I am burnt out after reading too many of these children's novels in quick succession (the Star Wars completionist in me insists that I must read them all), this being the fifth one ...

    After watching The Last Jedi, I wanted to know more about Rose Tico. She's an intriguing character who doesn't get much exploration in the movie, but just enough to hint at a lot more depth. Unfortunately, she doesn't get much exploration here, either. The story is about Rose and h...

    Beautifully written, as expected from author Elizabeth Wein, of Code Name Verity fame. I liked the tone, steering away from the typical Star Wars kind of adventure and more towards suspense. Again, as expected from the author of Code Name Verity. And I'm sort of in awe of how well she ...

    "Rose swallowed. Then, suddenly, she gave a sharp nod. She let go of Paige's hand. She knew that now she was going to be able to navigate new uncharted stars alone." Probably more like 3.5 stars! Damn the whole star only Goodreads rating scale. To begin: Rose Tico was defini...

    damn! I don't even know where to start. nach the last jedi wollte ich DRINGEND mehr über paige und rose tico erfahren so I bought this book. ich fand es allein deswegen ganz nett (und ich meine das wirklich), weil ich mehr darüber erfahren habe, was die resistance noch so alles tut -...

    http://wordnerdy.blogspot.com/2018/01... Are you FREAKING KIDDING ME?!? How did I not know that Elizabeth Wein, author of my beloved Code Name Verity, wrote one of the STAR WARS TIE IN NOVELS?? Just imagine a chorus of angels singing right now to fully understand my feelings on this...

    As a book intended for younger readers it doesn?t wow with beautiful prose or deal with heavy emotional issues and yet it packs an unexpected powerful punch. This book explains not just the backstory of the brilliant Tico sisters but also successfully explains away the absence of Bom...

    There are no epic space battles in this novel. Leia appears briefly. This is an intimate look at the deep relationship between Rose and Paige Tico and the lives of the rank and file members of the Resistance. It shows how limited the Resistance is and the treacherous political climate....

    This is, remarkably, the first Star Wars book I?ve ever read. It?s a lovely look at the Tico sisters, told mainly from Rose?s POV and taking place between TFA and TLJ. Wein?s writing is gorgeous as always?no one else can make technical jargon sound so interesting and smooth?...

    The YA novel, like many in the new cannon nicely fills in some gaps. Here we get the story of Rose and her sister. The book clearly adds to the beginning of the The Last Jedi as it tells the story of a Resistance mission to aid a planet under First Order control. It explains how Rose w...

    3.5 stars. I confess: I loved the Last Jedi, but don't hold it against me. (That's a discussion for another time!) That said, I love teading more about Paige and Rose (who I found to be an endearing character in the film). But was this the greatest SW novel ever written? Not by ...

    3.5 stars. The mission/plot of the story was okay but the book shines in the scenes between Rose and Paige, when we get a chance to see how devoted to and protective of each other they are (were). Because The Last Jedi just wasn?t sad enough. Will someone please hug Rose for me?! G...

    Not as tension-filled as I was hoping, though it was wonderful to focus on Rose and her older sister Paige and their close and loving relationship. Most of the story?s action takes place while a squadron of Star Fortresses (those ridiculous looking bombers in Last Jedi) make secret d...

    I really didn?t care for this book. It was like the X-Wing books in the Legends where there is just a lot of fighting in space. Reading that isn?t like seeing it. If that is enjoyable then the book was okay. The only thing that was great was Roses? backstory and how she relates t...

    After watching The Last Jedi, I wanted to know more about Rose Tico. She's an intriguing character who doesn't get much exploration in the movie, but just enough to hint at a lot more depth. Unfortunately, she doesn't get much exploration here, either. The story is about Rose and h...

    Beautifully written, as expected from author Elizabeth Wein, of Code Name Verity fame. I liked the tone, steering away from the typical Star Wars kind of adventure and more towards suspense. Again, as expected from the author of Code Name Verity. And I'm sort of in awe of how well she ...

    "Rose swallowed. Then, suddenly, she gave a sharp nod. She let go of Paige's hand. She knew that now she was going to be able to navigate new uncharted stars alone." Probably more like 3.5 stars! Damn the whole star only Goodreads rating scale. To begin: Rose Tico was defini...

    As a book intended for younger readers it doesn?t wow with beautiful prose or deal with heavy emotional issues and yet it packs an unexpected powerful punch. This book explains not just the backstory of the brilliant Tico sisters but also successfully explains away the absence of Bom...

    There are no epic space battles in this novel. Leia appears briefly. This is an intimate look at the deep relationship between Rose and Paige Tico and the lives of the rank and file members of the Resistance. It shows how limited the Resistance is and the treacherous political climate....

    Not the greatest entry in the Star Wars saga, but still worth it for the extra details that it adds to the ever expanding (new) lore. This book focuses on Rose Tico and her sister Paige, members of Cobalt Squadron, and missions they were running directly prior to the evacuation that ta...

    The YA novel, like many in the new cannon nicely fills in some gaps. Here we get the story of Rose and her sister. The book clearly adds to the beginning of the The Last Jedi as it tells the story of a Resistance mission to aid a planet under First Order control. It explains how Rose w...

    Ich bin ein großer Fan des aktuell noch neusten Star Wars Films ?The Last Jedi?. Passend zum Film kam eine ganze Reihe neuer Star Wars Bücher raus, die begeisterte Fans mit neuen Infos rund um den Film versorgen. Die Kobalt-Staffel ist eines davon und sofern ihr diese Rezension a...

    3.5 stars. The mission/plot of the story was okay but the book shines in the scenes between Rose and Paige, when we get a chance to see how devoted to and protective of each other they are (were). Because The Last Jedi just wasn?t sad enough. Will someone please hug Rose for me?! G...

    Not as tension-filled as I was hoping, though it was wonderful to focus on Rose and her older sister Paige and their close and loving relationship. Most of the story?s action takes place while a squadron of Star Fortresses (those ridiculous looking bombers in Last Jedi) make secret d...

    I really didn?t care for this book. It was like the X-Wing books in the Legends where there is just a lot of fighting in space. Reading that isn?t like seeing it. If that is enjoyable then the book was okay. The only thing that was great was Roses? backstory and how she relates t...

    Just ok ...

    After watching The Last Jedi, I wanted to know more about Rose Tico. She's an intriguing character who doesn't get much exploration in the movie, but just enough to hint at a lot more depth. Unfortunately, she doesn't get much exploration here, either. The story is about Rose and h...

    Beautifully written, as expected from author Elizabeth Wein, of Code Name Verity fame. I liked the tone, steering away from the typical Star Wars kind of adventure and more towards suspense. Again, as expected from the author of Code Name Verity. And I'm sort of in awe of how well she ...

    "Rose swallowed. Then, suddenly, she gave a sharp nod. She let go of Paige's hand. She knew that now she was going to be able to navigate new uncharted stars alone." Probably more like 3.5 stars! Damn the whole star only Goodreads rating scale. To begin: Rose Tico was defini...

    http://wordnerdy.blogspot.com/2018/01... Are you FREAKING KIDDING ME?!? How did I not know that Elizabeth Wein, author of my beloved Code Name Verity, wrote one of the STAR WARS TIE IN NOVELS?? Just imagine a chorus of angels singing right now to fully understand my feelings on this...

    As a book intended for younger readers it doesn?t wow with beautiful prose or deal with heavy emotional issues and yet it packs an unexpected powerful punch. This book explains not just the backstory of the brilliant Tico sisters but also successfully explains away the absence of Bom...

    There are no epic space battles in this novel. Leia appears briefly. This is an intimate look at the deep relationship between Rose and Paige Tico and the lives of the rank and file members of the Resistance. It shows how limited the Resistance is and the treacherous political climate....

    This is, remarkably, the first Star Wars book I?ve ever read. It?s a lovely look at the Tico sisters, told mainly from Rose?s POV and taking place between TFA and TLJ. Wein?s writing is gorgeous as always?no one else can make technical jargon sound so interesting and smooth?...

    I have Rose colored glasses about this book, surely, but after watching the Last Jedi I really wanted a deeper view into the Tico sistes and their bond, and it was perfect. A lovely short book with a gorgeous view into the new resistance, and it ties in perfectly into the Episode VIII....

    A slow story, made even more dull with lazy and cringe worthy writing. The stakes seem low and the plot unfolds in a bland and predictable way. The whole point of the book seemed to be to demonstrate how incompetent and childish Rose's character is, making it even harder to take her se...

    Not the greatest entry in the Star Wars saga, but still worth it for the extra details that it adds to the ever expanding (new) lore. This book focuses on Rose Tico and her sister Paige, members of Cobalt Squadron, and missions they were running directly prior to the evacuation that ta...

    The YA novel, like many in the new cannon nicely fills in some gaps. Here we get the story of Rose and her sister. The book clearly adds to the beginning of the The Last Jedi as it tells the story of a Resistance mission to aid a planet under First Order control. It explains how Rose w...

    3.5 stars. I confess: I loved the Last Jedi, but don't hold it against me. (That's a discussion for another time!) That said, I love teading more about Paige and Rose (who I found to be an endearing character in the film). But was this the greatest SW novel ever written? Not by ...

    Awww my heart ? it was really nice reading about Paige and Rose, understand their background and relationship, what led them to be where they were on The Last Jedi. A really nice short novel ...

    I love the Tico sisters, but I am unfortunately reminded that I find Elizabeth Wein to be an incredibly boring writer. ...

    Ahhh, I loved this book so much! I listened to the audiobook because it was narrated by Kelly Marie Tran, and her narration combined with the fantastic, emotional storytelling made for a great read! This story helps connect Rose, her sister Paige, and?surprisingly?Amilyn Holdo ...

    Ich bin ein großer Fan des aktuell noch neusten Star Wars Films ?The Last Jedi?. Passend zum Film kam eine ganze Reihe neuer Star Wars Bücher raus, die begeisterte Fans mit neuen Infos rund um den Film versorgen. Die Kobalt-Staffel ist eines davon und sofern ihr diese Rezension a...

    3.5 stars. The mission/plot of the story was okay but the book shines in the scenes between Rose and Paige, when we get a chance to see how devoted to and protective of each other they are (were). Because The Last Jedi just wasn?t sad enough. Will someone please hug Rose for me?! G...

    Not as tension-filled as I was hoping, though it was wonderful to focus on Rose and her older sister Paige and their close and loving relationship. Most of the story?s action takes place while a squadron of Star Fortresses (those ridiculous looking bombers in Last Jedi) make secret d...

    I really didn?t care for this book. It was like the X-Wing books in the Legends where there is just a lot of fighting in space. Reading that isn?t like seeing it. If that is enjoyable then the book was okay. The only thing that was great was Roses? backstory and how she relates t...

    Just ok ...

    This took me far too long to get through than a lightweight children's Star Wars novel ought to. Perhaps I am burnt out after reading too many of these children's novels in quick succession (the Star Wars completionist in me insists that I must read them all), this being the fifth one ...

    After watching The Last Jedi, I wanted to know more about Rose Tico. She's an intriguing character who doesn't get much exploration in the movie, but just enough to hint at a lot more depth. Unfortunately, she doesn't get much exploration here, either. The story is about Rose and h...

    Beautifully written, as expected from author Elizabeth Wein, of Code Name Verity fame. I liked the tone, steering away from the typical Star Wars kind of adventure and more towards suspense. Again, as expected from the author of Code Name Verity. And I'm sort of in awe of how well she ...

    "Rose swallowed. Then, suddenly, she gave a sharp nod. She let go of Paige's hand. She knew that now she was going to be able to navigate new uncharted stars alone." Probably more like 3.5 stars! Damn the whole star only Goodreads rating scale. To begin: Rose Tico was defini...

    A very disappointing book. Personally I think there was a huge waste of potential. The story?s main characters are Rose and Paige Tico. There are cameos from general Leia and Vice Admiral Holdo, and there side characters of Hammer (heavy bomber/Star fortress). There is not much go...

    sucks that SOMEONE had already used the title 'rose under fire', smh ...

    Dnf at 55% I just couldn?t force myself to care which makes me sad because I really wanted to like it, I wanted to know more about Rose. ...

    After TLJ, I was like, I really want a Tico sisters book. Well past Christy is smart...she had preordered this book and it showed up yesterday. So great. Finished it from the time I woke up this morning! ...

    damn! I don't even know where to start. nach the last jedi wollte ich DRINGEND mehr über paige und rose tico erfahren so I bought this book. ich fand es allein deswegen ganz nett (und ich meine das wirklich), weil ich mehr darüber erfahren habe, was die resistance noch so alles tut -...

    http://wordnerdy.blogspot.com/2018/01... Are you FREAKING KIDDING ME?!? How did I not know that Elizabeth Wein, author of my beloved Code Name Verity, wrote one of the STAR WARS TIE IN NOVELS?? Just imagine a chorus of angels singing right now to fully understand my feelings on this...

    As a book intended for younger readers it doesn?t wow with beautiful prose or deal with heavy emotional issues and yet it packs an unexpected powerful punch. This book explains not just the backstory of the brilliant Tico sisters but also successfully explains away the absence of Bom...

    There are no epic space battles in this novel. Leia appears briefly. This is an intimate look at the deep relationship between Rose and Paige Tico and the lives of the rank and file members of the Resistance. It shows how limited the Resistance is and the treacherous political climate....

    This is, remarkably, the first Star Wars book I?ve ever read. It?s a lovely look at the Tico sisters, told mainly from Rose?s POV and taking place between TFA and TLJ. Wein?s writing is gorgeous as always?no one else can make technical jargon sound so interesting and smooth?...

    I have Rose colored glasses about this book, surely, but after watching the Last Jedi I really wanted a deeper view into the Tico sistes and their bond, and it was perfect. A lovely short book with a gorgeous view into the new resistance, and it ties in perfectly into the Episode VIII....

    A slow story, made even more dull with lazy and cringe worthy writing. The stakes seem low and the plot unfolds in a bland and predictable way. The whole point of the book seemed to be to demonstrate how incompetent and childish Rose's character is, making it even harder to take her se...
