Cast No Shadow – Book Review

Cast No Shadow by James Swallow My rating: 5 of 5 stars Cast No Shadow is the continuation of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

Rogue One…

and plot holes. Spoilers alert! I just watched Rogue One: a Star Wars Story this morning. It had been ten days since the release date and the movie theater was not that full. I liked it. In fact, I liked it way more than Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. First, the characters were way […]
