the voice of the empire Reviews
Just when you get pulled into the story it ends. A reporter comes into brief contact with Orson Krennic at a party after the Empire starts censuring her holovid show. It's well written and I wish it had been longer. Reprinted in the back of Catalyst.
So this little story gives you just enough info to be interested, but leaves you hanging on a morsel. It's well written enough to pull you in, even with the minimal word count, drawing you into the intrigue that IS HoloNet News & their manipulation of coverage. You like Calliope for her spunk & willingness to be a spy for the Resistance. I would really like to read more on this character! A Star Wars story from a spy's perspective would make a really great read! This gets 3 🌟 from me since they don't give you enough to base a higher rating.
It seems to be a trend that these stories written for Insider are so short they feel truncated. Still, Lafferty does a good job of setting up a small pocket of resistance to reflect the story of Rogue One. I like her characterization skills, and she captures the quiet menace of Krennic well. I just wish the story were longer so I could see more of what she does well.
Nice little connection with Rogue One and the overall story of the Empire and the rising Rebellion.
