After the events of The Last Jedi, Star Wars’ latest hotshot pilot hero Poe Dameron has been knocked all the way back on his ass—not just by the First Order’s shattering of the Resistance fleet, but by harsh lessons learned about his own pride. But now that the Resistance needs allies old and new, has Poe really taken his misjudgement to heart?

Published by Del Rey and picking up immediately as Last Jedi ends, Resistance Reborn sees Leia, Rose, Rey, Finn, and Poe fan out across the galaxy in search of the allies the Resistance desperately needs after the losses they suffered at Crait.
