Publisher Description

Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens with this exclusive ebook short story set shortly before the events of the film, featuring a quick-witted mercenary who takes big risks for bigger rewards—and now faces the challenge that will take her to the edge.
There are plenty of mercenaries, spies, and guns for hire in the galaxy. But probably none as dangerous and determined as Bazine Netal. A master of disguise—and lethal with a blade, a blaster, or bare handed—she learned from the best. Now it’s her turn to be the teacher—even if schooling an eager but inexperienced recruit in the tricks of her trade is the last thing she wants to do. But it’s the only way to score the ship she needs to pull off her latest job.
An anonymous client has hired Bazine to track down an ex-stormtrooper and recover the mysterious package he’s safeguarding. Payment for the mission promises to be astronomical, but the obstacles facing Bazine will prove to be formidable. And though her eager new sidekick has cyber skills crucial to the mission, only Bazine’s razor-sharp talents will mean the difference between success or failure—and life or death.

A Nice Short Story

This is a nice short story. I wouldn't mind seeing the main character again in the future Star Wars movies. The main character, in this story, is also worthy of longer novels.

The Perfect Short Story

I delightful read with great new characters added to the Star Wars Saga. It was a fun, short read and I recommend it for any Star Wars fan. Only downside is that it doesn't give us much about The Force Awakens

Decent EU short story but nothing special.

This short story by Delilah S. Johnson features a brand new character in Bazine Netal, a cunning spy who is sent on a dangerous mission. Bazine herself is a little too brash and uncouth for my tastes, having little depth to her personality besides “I’m a spy” and "I don’t make friends.” This would be a satisfying introduction to her character if we are allowed to get to know her better in future EU stories or even The Force Awakens. At eleven chapters with little payoff, I’d say pass on this one unless you are really interested in this character.
