Oh Captain Phasma, how your story should have been told. This book covers the creation of the being that is Phasma, from her savage beginnings on Parnassos to conspiring with Armitage Hux to assassinate his father Brindle Hux.

Before “The Force Awakens” came out I saw the trailers and wanted to know who the tall chrome stormtrooper was. We learned she was female and supposed to be a total badass. The big problem is that she only appeared for a moment in the movie. Then comes “The Last Jedi,” again Phasma is seen in action, but in actuality very briefly in the movie before she dies. This totally frustrated me. I saw this book and had to jump on it, because I had to know about the Chrometrooper.

Finally with this book By Delilah S. Dawson gives the fan a full story as told through her enemy Captain Cardinal and his interrogation of a Rebel Spy.

January Lavoy does an excellent job delivering the story and with music and sound effects from the Star Wars saga the listener will get totally sucked into the story.

Publisher’s Summary
Discover Captain Phasma’s mysterious history in this “Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi” novel.

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.
