Yesterday’s unveiling of the back cover of Timothy Zahn’s Scoundrels revealed not only some new characters, but some new images of fan favorite characters, too. While this won’t be the full line up for the novel, it does give us something to dig into. First off, I think it’s rather interesting that the cover has a criminal lineup theme. Not only does it resonate with the title of the book, but is also vibes with the plot. Plus it’s remininiscent of the character lineups in the Ultimate Alien Anthology. Speaking of which… Continue Reading A Closer Look at ‘Scoundrels’…

Jaina and Jag on Apocalypse Back Cover?

Rumors out of NYCC have it that the back cover of Apocalypse features Jaina and Jag.  Since this is not an official announcement we won’t be posting what we’re sure is a clandestine photo.  But we have seen it, and it does look authentic to us.

As soon as the official image is released we’ll be sure and post it here.

TOR.com confirmed that the back cover image for Apocalypse does indeed feature Jag and Jaina.

UPDATE: Star Wars Books posted that “We also showed the original APOCALYPSE back cover in which Jag sports an X-wing pilot uniform and Jaina is sans lightsaber.” Hopefully we’ll have some images soon.

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.
