Alphabet Squadron by Alexander Freed is out today in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats. The first in a new trilogy focused on the soldiers in a post-Return of the Jedi galaxy. If you’re a fan of Twilight Company or the Old X-Wing books, this is one you won’t want to miss.

The first novel in a new trilogy starring veteran New Republic pilots!

On the verge of victory in a brutal war, five New Republic pilots transform from hunted to hunters in this epic Star Wars adventure. Set after Return of the Jedi, Alphabet Squadron follows a unique team, each flying a different class of starfighter as they struggle to end their war once and for all.

Pirate’s Price by Lou Anders is a collection of stories all featuring Hondo Ohnaka. The stories take place over multiple time periods ranging from the time of the Empire to the events after The Last Jedi. While this is a good book, it’s an even better audiobook as it’s narrated by the voice of Hondo Ohnaka himself, Jim Cummings. Click here to read our full review.

Book Review: ‘Queen’s Shadow’ by E. K. Johnston

If you want to know more about Padme and her handmaidens, Queen’s Shadow is definitely the book you’re looking for. There’s not a lot of action and excitement, and it’s definitely a slower paced story, but the character exploration keeps it interesting. In this book you get to dive into Padme’s head and find out what her reasoning is, who she is as a person, and why she does the things she does. You also get to find out who the handmaidens are and what their role is in all of this. It makes for an interesting book. Click here to read our full review.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • io9 has a look at the Industrial Light & Magic Presents: Making Solo: A Star Wars Story book.
  • In sad news, Vonda N. McIntyre, the author of the Star Wars Legends novel The Crystal Star, has passed away. Vonda did much more than create one of the most controversial Star Wars villains, Waru, she was also the third woman to win a Hugo Award, she wrote the first original Star Trek novel for the Pocket Books line, and she came up with Sulu and Uhura’s first names. She will be missed, but her books shall live on.
  • I missed this but Jedi Bibliotheck spotted it back in early March, but it looks like they’re doing a Haynes manual for the TIE Fighter. It’s set for an October release.

Celebration News

  • The lotteries have been extended to April 8th so if you haven entered yet there is still time.
