About the Book:
- “Childhood friends Izzy and Jules haven’t seen each other for 13 years.

When the job goes wrong, the two friends find themselves on the run and fighting to stay alive…”
What They’re Saying:
- Córdova on visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for the first time: “I will never forget walking into Galaxy’s Edge and knowing instantly that I was in the Batuu I’d spent months imagining. The market stalls, Oga’s Cantina, the docking bays, the stormtroopers, and the Millennium Falcon. Turning a corner to find the Falcon there was glorious. I felt like I was tracing the steps that Izzy and Jules might have taken. Eating the same food and drinking a Fuzzy Tauntaun while boppin’ along to DJ Rex. Black Spire Outpost feels like one big party, and after spending so much time there with my characters, a small part of it felt like coming home.”
- Córdova on the expanded Star Wars Universe: “Reading in the Star Wars universe makes the galaxy feel so much bigger. I love the Skywalkers, don’t get me wrong, but I also love reading about regular people like Thane and Ciena from Claudia Gray’s Lost Stars.
- Córdova on who should read her book: “There are so many things to love about Star Wars. Scoundrels. Jedi. Ewoks. PORGS. But my favorite aspects have always been the humor, the underlying love stories, and the exploration of outposts on dusty planets that feel like the wild west in space. If you love those things, too, then A Crash of Fate might be right for you.”
