It is a terribly exciting time for the Star Wars fandom because there is so much happening right now. For May The 4th (i.e. Star Wars Day) I'm going to write a post about what I think their recent announcement regarding the Expanded Universe means exactly, for us fans. But for now, I want to focus on the other news we got on the 25th of this month. Star Wars is publishing new books and they will be part of the 'single, cohesive Star Wars storyline'!
Set prior to the events of the forthcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels, this novel tells the story of how two of the lead characters of the series, Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla, came to cross paths.There's not much of a synopsis, I grant, but then they can't tell us too much without potentially spoiling the first few episodes of the show. They are also releasing other books in 2014/2015 and my current hope is at least one of them will show up on Netgalley for me to sink my claws in!
STAR WARS: TARKIN
STAR WARS: HEIR TO THE JEDI
STAR WARS: LORDS OF THE SITH
I'm ridiculously excited. So, what are you waiting for?
