Attention! Spoilers follow here!
How could the basically completely inexperienced Rey so easily defeat Kylo Ren in a lightsaber duel in Star Wars: Episode 7 – The Force Awakens? In the novel for the movie Star Wars: Episode 9- The Rise of Skwalker, Kylo Ren talks to Chewbacca and explains that he hasn't forgotten the attack on the Starkiller base. Chewie's goal, according to Kylo, meant that he no longer had the strength to defeat Rey.
The book also explains the strange situation regarding Rey's parents. In Star Wars: Episode 8 – The Last Jedi, Kylo Ren Rey explained that he knew who her parents were. That they were drunkards and nobody and that Rey was also nobody. The novel clarifies that Kylo Ren actually saw Rey's parents through a vision of power. The Force showed him a frightened couple who lived in fear and barely had enough to survive. So Kylo Ren didn't lie when he told Rey about her parents. But the Force had shown him a distorted vision and not the whole truth.
So if you want to understand the full story of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, you can read the novel for Episode 9.
