- "So on one side of the book I liken it to 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine In Space.' It's this group of lovable misfits who are all banded together and learning how to be part of the Resistance. The flip side of that is we do have the First Order show up and when you have spies and resistance tangling with the First Order there's going to be some violence. I felt like this was a book where we had to deal with things we don't see in Star Wars, insofar as people dealing with heavy trauma."

Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire is a canon novel written by Delilah S. Dawson. It is part of the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge media project, and it was first published on August 27, 2019 by Del Rey. An audiobook version was also released.
Set after Dawson's previous Star Wars novel, Phasma, Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire begins during the events of the film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. The rest of the story is set four months later, between Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi and Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker, and prior to the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge theme park experience.
After devastating losses at the hands of the First Order, General Leia Organa has dispatched her agents across the galaxy in search of allies, sanctuary, and firepower—and her top spy, Vi Moradi, may have just found all three, on a secluded world at the galaxy's edge.
A planet of lush forests, precarious mountains, and towering, petrified trees, Batuu is on the furthest possible frontier of the galactic map, the last settled world before the mysterious expanse of Wild Space. The rogues, smugglers, and adventurers who eke out a living on the largest settlement on the planet, Black Spire Outpost, are here to avoid prying eyes and unnecessary complications. Vi, a Resistance spy on the run from the First Order, is hardly a welcome guest. And when a shuttle full of stormtroopers lands in her wake, determined to root her out, she has no idea where to find help.
To survive, Vi will have to seek out the good-hearted heroes hiding in a world that redefines scum and villainy. With the help of a traitorous trooper and her acerbic droid, she begins to gather a colorful band of outcasts and misfits, and embarks on a mission to spark the fire of resistance on Batuu—before the First Order snuffs it out entirely.

- ↑ Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire begins during the events of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens and ends prior to the events of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. A timeline shown at D23 2019 dates both Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge to 34 ABY, so Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire must also be set in that year.
