New Official Synopsis for 'Star Wars: Phasma' Released

Del Rey Publishing and Lucasfilm have released a new official synopsis for the upcoming novel Star Wars: Phasma by Delilah S. Dawson.  The novel, which hits shelves on September 1st (aka "Force Friday II"), is part of the Journey to The Last Jedi publishing line and tells the backstory of Captain Phasma (the stormtrooper Captain in chrome-armor played by Gwendoline Christie in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi).  You can read the new synopsis below,


Discover Captain Phasma’s mysterious history in this “Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi” novel.

One of the most cunning and merciless officers of the First Order, Captain Phasma commands the favor of her superiors, the respect of her peers, and the terror of her enemies. But for all her renown, Phasma remains as virtually unknown as the impassive expression on her gleaming chrome helmet. Now, an adversary is bent on unearthing her mysterious origins—and exposing a secret she guards as zealously and ruthlessly as she serves her masters.

Deep inside the Battlecruiser Absolution, a captured Resistance spy endures brutal interrogation at the hands of a crimson-armored stormtrooper—Cardinal. But the information he desires has nothing to do with the Resistance or its covert operations against the First Order.

What the mysterious stormtrooper wants is Phasma’s past—and with it whatever long-buried scandal, treachery, or private demons he can wield against the hated rival who threatens his own power and privilege in the ranks of the First Order. His prisoner has what Cardinal so desperately seeks, but she won’t surrender it easily. As she wages a painstaking war of wills with her captor, bargaining for her life in exchange for every precious revelation, the spellbinding chronicle of the inscrutable Phasma unfolds. But this knowledge may prove more than just dangerous once Cardinal possesses it—and once his adversary unleashes the full measure of her fury.

Some are speculating that the crimson-armoured stormtrooper named Cardinal and the captured Resistance spy are two of the characters featured in the posters that were revealed the other day which will be available from different retailers on Force Friday II.  (Though there's still the question of that mysterious third poster).
