Battlefront: Twilight Company
That being said... this is the first Star Wars book in the new canon that is extremely mediocre. It's not horrible but there's no way I would recommend this one to anybody.
Seriously, if you want a recommendation go read Lost Stars. It's probably my favorite Star Wars book ever and it's in the new canon extended universe.
Star Wars Battlefront: Twilight Company is supposed to be a tie-in book to the Battlefront game that releases today. Actually, it's a very generic sci-fi military novel. I've never been a big fan of military books. These are novels that spend the whole time focusing on what it's like fighting on the ground and being one of the troops. Twilight Company is no exception.
There are a bunch of undeveloped flat characters that you spend the whole book with. They're ground troops in the war against the Empire but they rarely tie into the overall Star Wars universe and the book barely adds anything to the universe at all.
Out of all the new canon novels this has been my least favorite.
But at least the Battlefront game is out today! I loved the beta and I'm super excited to play the full game! It looks amazing! Just skip the tie-in novel.
