Star Wars Books has posted a mini-excerpt from Aaron Allston’s Mercy Kill which reveals yet another character with an important role in the novel.
Face’s approach was so silent that neither noticed until he was almost at the table. Both turned to look at him and, seeing the expression on his face, fell silent.
He turned to Dia. “I promise I will never make you so mad that you borrow an X-wing, take it up, and use it to burn me to a cinder.”
“Smart of you.” She gestured at the third chair. “Whose turn is it to cook?”
“We’ll order something.”
He sat and turned to his daughter. “And you, young lady . . . Beware of older military officers who chase you when you’re a teenager. They’ll just dump you when you turn thirty.”
She sighed and rolled her eyes. “Dad, I hate it when you bring work home.”
That’s right X-Wing fans, Face Loran is not only in Mercy Kill, he’s now officially a dad, but don’t expect to see too much of Dia and his daughter. Face, on the other hand, will get some good page time, though perhaps not as much as you would expect due to a little surprise or two Allston has up his sleeve.
