Over on edelweiss they’ve posted some new info on Christie Golden’s upcoming Ventress/Vos novel.

The last story never told in The Clone Wars television saga: A tale of trust, betrayal, love, and evil starring the hugely popular ex-Sith/never-Jedi female bounty hunter, Asajj Ventress! A tale written but never aired, now turned into a brand-new novel with the creative collaboration of the Lucasfilm Story Group and Dave Filoni, Executive Producer and Director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels!

When the Jedi decide to target Count Dooku—Darth Tyranus—himself, they turn to his ex-apprentice, Asajj Ventress, for help in getting close to the slippery Sith Lord. But when unexpected sparks fly between Ventress and Quinlan Vos, the unorthodox Jedi sent to work with her, the mission becomes a web of betrayal, alliances, secrets, and dark plotting that might just be the undoing of both Jedi and Sith—and everything in between!

Tentative Release Date: July 7, 2015 (Hardcover)

Convention Promotions: Star Wars Celebration Anaheim (4/15), Phoenix Comicon (6/15), San Diego Comic-Con (7/15) and New York Comic Con (10/15)

Based on a series of scripts written by Katie Lucas, George Lucas’s daughter, and developed with full collaborative effort by the Story Group and Dave Filoni, Executive Producer and Director ofThe Clone Wars television series, this new Star Wars novel brings to complex and exciting life a story planned for but never told on TV—and one of the most popular anti-heroines of the Star Wars galaxy: Asajj Ventress!

The Scorched Earth by Drew Karpyshyn is perhaps even better than the first book in the series, Children of Fire. The characters head to frozen landscape of the nomadic barbarians as dark minions pursue them. Mythic monsters, massive battles and chaos ensues as the action heats up.

Goodnight Darth Vader by Jeffrey Brown is a bit different from his previous Star Wars books and very specialized in it’s role. Whether it’s right for you depends entirely on whether you’ll be reading it to your kids or not. Either way, it does have some really nice artwork. Click here for our full review.
