Today Star Wars Books gave us an excerpt from Christie Golden’s upcoming book Ascension instead of the usual Timothy Zahn annotation from Heir to the Empire. Not surprisingly the excerpt doesn’t reveal much but presents plenty of questions. Here is the excerpt:

She pointed to a message flashing on the screen.
INFORMATION YOU WILL WANT TO HAVE.
SAFETY FOR YOUR FAMILY GUARANTEED.
REPLY FOR MORE.
“Short and completely mysterious,” Han mused, frowning a little.
“It came in on my private channel.”
“The one only about six people and two droids have access to?”
“That would be the one.”

What could it mean? Feel free to speculate.

Back Cover of Ascension

The official site has revealed the back cover of Christie Golden’s upcoming Fate of the Jedi novel Ascension. Ascension will be the 8th novel in the nine book Fate of the Jediseries and is slated for release on August 9th. According to Star Wars Books Facebook page the back cover “features the most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy!” so it’s safe to say it’s Boba Fett.

They have also revealed the synopsis:

How long can the Jedi remain in power?
How far will the Sith go to rule supreme?
What chance do both stand against Abeloth?

As Luke and Ben Skywalker pursue the formidable dark-side being Abeloth, the Lost Tribe of the Sith is about to be sundered by an even greater power — which will thrust one Dark Lord into mortal conflict with his own flesh-and-blood.

On Coruscant, a political vacuum has left tensions at the boiling point, with factions racing to claim control of the Galactic Alliance. Suddenly surrounded by hidden agendas, treacherous conspiracies, and covert Sith agents, the Jedi Order must struggle to keep the GA government from collapsing into anarchy.

The Jedi are committed to maintaining peace and ensuring just rule, but even they are not prepared to take on the combined threats of Sith power, a deposed dictator bent on galaxywide vengeance, and an entity of pure cunning and profound evil hungry to become a god.

Ian Keltie, the cover artist for the Fate of the Jedi series, was gracious enough to answer a few questions for us. Below is snippet from the interview, Ian commented on the new tone of Conviction and Ascension:

.                       An Ian Keltie creation

LucasFilms wanted the final three to stay in the style but look different from the previous six. The black background helps the darker feel. I think these final three are more what the Star Wars fans are used to rather than the earlier books. Personally my favorite covers are Outcast and Allies.

Check out the full interview here.

Fate of the Jedi Ascension cover revealed!

Personally, I like it, but not everyone is in agreement.

Random House has also released the full jacket blurb.

“Chief of State Natasi Daala has been overthrown, and the Jedi Order has taken control of the Galactic Alliance. But while the new governors dismantle Daala’s draconian regime, forces still loyal to the deposed official are mobilizing a counterstrike. And even the Jedi’s new authority may not be enough to save Tahiri Veila, the former Jedi Knight and onetime Sith apprentice convicted of treason for the killing of Galactic Alliance officer Gilad Pellaeon.

Meanwhile, Luke and Ben Skywalker are relentlessly pursuing Abeloth, the powerful dark-side entity bent on ruling the galaxy. But as they corner their monstrous quarry on the planet Nam Chorios, the two lone Jedi must also face the fury of the Sith death squadron bearing down on them. And when Abeloth turns the tables with an insidious ambush, the Skywalkers’ quest threatens to become a suicide mission.”
