Blurb for Lost Stars by Claudia Gray (304 pages, September 4, hardcover)

This thrilling Young Adult novel gives readers a macro view of some of the most important events in the Star Wars universe, from the rise of the Rebellion to the fall of the Empire. Readers will experience these major moments through the eyes of two childhood friends–Ciena Ree and Thane Kyrell–who have grown up to become an Imperial officer and a Rebel pilot. Now on opposite sides of the war, will these two star-crossed lovers reunite, or will duty tear them–and the galaxy–apart?

Star Wars: Lost Stars also includes all-new post-Star Wars: Return of the Jedi content, as well as hints and clues about the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, making this a must-read for all Star Wars fans.

kanan-the-last-padawanAmid all the news from Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, one piece that might have slipped by was from the Star Wars Comes Home to Marvel panel. There it was revealed that Greg Weisman will be sticking around for the second arc of Kanan: The Last Padawan. Greg was originally hired to write just the first five issues as it was planned to just be a mini-series. Due to popularity, Marvel quickly decided to make it an ongoing series, and now they’ve brought Greg back to write the second arc. Very cool news and definitely something for fans to looks forward to.

On Station At Celebration: Day 3

on-station-at-celebrationStar Wars Celebration Anaheim day three I’m going to do a bit different by updating this as they day progresses since I have some time before the Star Wars Rebels Season Two global premiere. For starters, let’s begin with the New Allies & New Villains: Star Wars Rebels Season 2 panel.

As usual, there’s a bit of fun with the preshow, and I think it’s worth noting so people can get the full experience of Celebration. Mark Daniels read, in jest, a Chewbacca poem, then had young volunteers come up so they could play a game. The game involved several helmets on podiums (stormtrooper helmets, etc) and some big, stuffed Star Wars angry birds. The kids threw the angry birds at the helmets to knock them off and win a prize. The really little kids got some assistance from a giant, oversized Chewbacca angry bird which helped even the odds. Continue Reading On Station At Celebration: Day 3…

On Station At Celebration: Day 2

on-station-at-celebrationStar Wars Celebration Anaheim day two, what a day. For me, it all started with a series of author interviews you can look forward to seeing in the very near future, and ended with the Anthony Daniels panel on the Celebration Stage. Let me just say, he knows how to put on a show. But in general, this Celebration has really raised the bar on panel quality.

I have to admit, one of my favorite things about Celebration is meeting the authors. I’m a total book nut, so my passion for the Star Wars novels is definitely at the heart of my fandom. On top of that, getting to interview them is always a great experience. I try to bring my ‘A’ game with the questions, and if I do my job well, hopefully fellow book lovers will enjoy the results. Expect to see, or if the audio turns out well, hear, from authors Christie Golden, Drew Karpyshyn, John Jackson Miller, James Luceno, Daniel Wallace, Adam Bray and Tricia Barr in the coming weeks as we post those interviews with each author talking about their books and the stories behind them. We’ll also be doing some giveaways for signed novels so keep an eye out for that too. Continue Reading On Station At Celebration: Day 2…
