- Staff writer Bria blasted through the book on release day, giving it a 5/5.
- Over at Jedi News, Mark praised the characters and smaller scope.
- Author Bryan Young was also high on the book, awarding it 5/5 stars.
- Our friends at EUCantina were generally positive on the book, scoring it a 4/5.

The early reviews definitely have trended towards positive and indicate that Scoundrels is a novel well worth your time. Another bit of consensus seems to be that this is a great entry point for those unfamiliar with the Expanded Universe, so if you’ve got a friend that needs a place to start, this may be a great novel to consider.
The rest of the staff here will be chiming in with late reviews as we read through the book. In addition, we’re planning a roundtable discussion on the podcast, so stay tuned!
