Star Wars Books has posted micro-excerpt #4 for Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge by Martha Wells.

“Han, I don’t have time for this.” She looked at him with steely determination. “I have to help these people and I need you to . . . not try to stop me.”

Yeah, yeah, he knew she needed to help these people. She needed to help all the people. “Then let me go help them with you.”

“They only asked for Metara. It’s going to be awkward enough when she brings me along. More people would just make it worse.”

“Awkward?” Han lifted his brows at the choice of word. She was
right, but he hated to send her out with no backup except Metara. The captain was a fanatic, and he would sooner trust a Hutt gang lord than a fanatic. “It’ll be awkward if they shoot you.”

“It’ll be just as awkward if they shoot all of us.” Leia folded her arms and gave him the I’m-the-Princess-and-you’re-not look. “I’m not going to argue about this.”

Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge by Martha Wells will be out on September 24 in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats. You can also check out the previous micro-excerpts here: #1, #2 and #3.

This Blog is Full of Words posted an interview with Martha Wells talking about her new book Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge.

You’ve written about fantasy creatures a lot in the Raksura books. Was it fun to write for different aliens in the Star Wars universe? Why did you choose the species you did? 

Martha Wells: The number of different aliens is one of the things I’ve always really enjoyed about Star Wars, and it was actually hard to pick which ones I wanted to do when there were so many neat ones to choose from.  I tried to pick the ones that would best fit with what I wanted to do in the story, which ones would actually be where they needed to be for the plot, doing what I needed them to do.  I feel like there was so many possibilities, it was like being at a buffet and only being able to put a few things on your plate.
