    Description

    Soon to be seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, welcome to the casino city of Canto Bight. A place where exotic aliens, captivating creatures, and other would-be high rollers are willing to risk everything to make their fortunes. Set across one fateful evening, these four original novellas explore the deception and danger of the lavish casino city.

    An honest salesman meets a career criminal as a dream vacation turns into the worst nightmare imaginable in a story by Saladin Ahmed.

    Dreams and schemes collide when a deal over a priceless bottle of wine becomes a struggle for survival, as told by Mira Grant.

    Old habits die hard when a servant is forced into a mad struggle for power among Canto Bight's elite in a tale by Rae Carson.

    A deadbeat gambler has one last chance to turn his luck around; all he has to do is survive one wild night, as told by John Jackson Miller.

    In Canto Bight, one is free to revel in excess, untouched from the problems of a galaxy once again descending into chaos and war. Dreams can become reality, but the stakes have never been higher - for there is a darkness obscured by all the glamour and luxury.

    Cast of narrators:

    • Rules of the Game by Saladin Ahmed, read by Sean Kenin
    • The Wine in Dreams by Mira Grant, read by Saskia Maarleveld
    • Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing by Rae Carson, read by Marc Thompson
    • The Ride by John Jackson Miller, read by Jonathan Davis

    worth the time

    These stories make Canto Bight an interesting place. They deal with different characters but some of the locations overlap a little bit and it all adds up to give a lot of character to Canto Bight. There is one story in particular where the protagonist is a non-human species and it is one of the best most original stories I've heard in awhile, even outside of Star Wars. For me it made Canto Bight feel like it's own distinct world rather than a Mos Eisley knockoff. There are cool species, distinct interesting characters, compelling story-lines, and more great performances from the narrators. As with any anthology some of the stories are better than others but all of them were worthwhile in some way. It's worth the time to check out.

    A fun group of stories with a few great moments

    Great narrators and neat stories helped make Canto Bight more alive and worth exploring. Decent!

    Surprisingly wonderful.

    I started this book, but abandoned it early on. I came back when I was between books. I so glad I did. This book captures the spirit of Star Wars with out a single lightsaber or battle. I can’t recommend it enough.

    Pleasantly Surprised

    This book is comprised of 4 Short stories about activities on Canto Bight. This not your typical Star Wars novel. That said, I found the characters very likable and the stories were thoughtful and interesting. There was not much time for character and plot development, but a good enough job was done.

    For hardcore fans only

    The production values, as with any Star Wars audiobook, are stellar. The first two stories were tough and seemed to drag. The second story especially about some twins and a cat of wine did not hold much interest. The final two stories are much more engaging and relatable.

    Mixed Bag

    A great one, a couple that were good, and one that was bad. Like the Last Jedi Canto Bight sequence, not a really necessary story, but a painless way to spend a few hours. As always, the cast of narrators knocks it out of the park bringing life to what I would assume would be a slog to actually read.

    A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one

    I didn't expect much from this in the beginning. I only got it as a star wars fan obligation. Boy did I have fun with the stories. There were parts when it was kinda dull or I lost track of what was going on, but it was an enjoyable ride throughout. my favorites are the first and last stories.

    Nice set of stories

    Four separate stores. while not all four are great, the second and last were really good with the third fun and the first being the least impressive.

    Entertaining Stories, refreshing.

    These are random stories about random new characters, but the storytelling stays true to your regular Star Wars themes. Great world building, likable characters, fun stories. good writing. Enjoy.
