"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. Deep inside the Battlecruiser Absolution, a captured Resistance spy endures brutal interrogation at the hands of a crimson-armored stormtrooper -- Cardinal. But the information he desires has nothing to do with the Resistance or its covert operations against the First Order. What the mysterious stormtrooper wants is Phasma's past -- and with it whatever long-buried scandal, treachery, or private demons he can wield against the hated rival who threatens his own power and privilege in the ranks of the First Order. His prisoner has what Cardinal so desperately seeks, but she won't surrender it easily. As she wages a painstaking war of wills with her captor, bargaining for her life in exchange for every precious revelation, the spellbinding chronicle of the inscrutable Phasma unfolds. But this knowledge may prove more than just dangerous once Cardinal possesses it -- and once his adversary unleashes the full measure of her fury."--Amazon.com.… (mais)

Did you watch "The Force Awakens" and wonder about the backstory of the chrome-plated Stormtrooper with a name? Do you enjoy stories about a villain? If you answered yes to both of those questions, dig in to this rollicking post-apocalyptic road trip.

3 1/2 stars: Good

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 unknowable as the impassive expression on her gleaming chrome helmet. Now and adversary is bent on unearthing her mysterious origins - and exposing a secret she guards as zealously and ruthlessly as she serves her masters.

Deep inside battle cruister Absolution, a captured Resistance spy endures brutal interrogation at the hands of Cardinal, a crimson armored stormtrooper. But the information he desires has nothing to do with the Resistance or its covert operations against the First Order. What the mysterious stormtrooper wants is Phasma's past - and with it, whatever long buried demons he can wield against the hated rival who threatens his power and privilege in the ranks of the First Order. Though his prisoner has what Cardinal so desperately seek, she won't surrender it easily. As she wages a painstaking war of wills with her captor, bargaining for her life in exchange for every precious revelation, the spellbinding chronicle of the inscrutable Phasma unfolds. But this knowldge may prove more than just dangerous once Cardinal possesses it - and once his adversary unleashes the full measure of her fury.

-------------

I liked this quite well. The "resistance spy" noted is Vi Morandi, The two timelines weave together well. Without giving spoilers, what Cardinal does at the end, and the big reveal with Armitage Hux and how he betrays his father Brendol, was very well done. The book had to grow on me a bit, but once it gets going, its very good. I may have missed why Phasma doesn't want anyone to see her face? I'm not sure if there's a "Reveal" or if I just missed a quirk of hers. Regardless, worth the read. Also, it explores Vi Morandi, who is a character based on Batuu (aka Galaxy's Edge).

Some quotes I liked:

That's the problem with indoctrination - the whole point of the First Order's kind of education is to stop someone from thinking and instead kick their emotions into gear. Make them hate everything else so they'll cling to what you give them. Its hard to think for yourself when fear and anger are driving the shuttle.

"I've never walked on sand" Torben noted. "What's it like?"
Phasma's people looked to her, but she nodded to Brendol.
"IT shifts under your feet. Coarse and rough. Irritating. Gets everywhere."

SHe was too far away to tell if it had hit buildings of Brendol's crashed ship, but it was clear Brendol was sending her a message that couldn't be misunderstood.
Do what he wanted, or find herself destroyed.
"Powerful indeed" she said, when she was able. ( )

I really liked this, and the framing device worked so well that I want to read more about all the side characters. ( )

I was very surprised by this book. I really liked the story and I couldn't put it down. Phasma really is a bad@ss. I would not mess with her. ( )

Not what I expected! (And that's GOOD!)
I didn't know where this book was aimed... I couldn't imagine wanting to read about Phasma... Instead it was a spy's story - kind of a Scherezade telling the story- stories! - of who Phasma really was. ( )
