Today Star Wars Books gave us an excerpt from Christie Golden’s upcoming book Ascension instead of the usual Timothy Zahn annotation from Heir to the Empire. Not surprisingly the excerpt doesn’t reveal much but presents plenty of questions. Here is the excerpt:
She pointed to a message flashing on the screen.
INFORMATION YOU WILL WANT TO HAVE.
SAFETY FOR YOUR FAMILY GUARANTEED.
REPLY FOR MORE.
“Short and completely mysterious,” Han mused, frowning a little.
“It came in on my private channel.”
“The one only about six people and two droids have access to?”
“That would be the one.”
What could it mean? Feel free to speculate.
