Empire’s End by Chuck Wendig is out today in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats and marks the end of the Aftermath Trilogy.

EVERY END IS A NEW BEGINNING.

As the final showdown between the New Republic and the Empire draws near, all eyes turn to a once-isolated planet: Jakku.

The Battle of Endor shattered the Empire, scattering its remaining forces across the galaxy. But the months following the Rebellion’s victory have not been easy. The fledgling New Republic has suffered a devastating attack from the Imperial remnant, forcing the new democracy to escalate their hunt for the hidden enemy.

For her role in the deadly ambush, Grand Admiral Rae Sloane is the most wanted Imperial war criminal—and one-time rebel pilot Norra Wexley, back in service at Leia’s urgent request, is leading the hunt. But more than just loyalty to the New Republic drives Norra forward: Her husband was turned into a murderous pawn in Sloane’s assassination plot, and now she wants vengeance as much as justice.

But Sloane, too, is on a furious quest: pursuing the treacherous Gallius Rax to the barren planet Jakku. As the true mastermind behind the Empire’s devastating attack, Rax has led the Empire to its defining moment. The cunning strategist has gathered the powerful remnants of the Empire’s war machine, preparing to execute the late Emperor Palpatine’s final plan. As the Imperial fleet orbits Jakku, an armada of Republic fighters closes in to finish what began at Endor. Norra and her crew soar into the heart of an apocalyptic clash that will leave land and sky alike scorched. And the future of the galaxy will finally be decided.

Being revealed at New York Comic Con, there’s some cool news regarding upcoming Star Wars books.

  • The titles for the next two books in Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath trilogy are Life Debt and Empire’s End. The second book will be out Summer 2016 and the final book in 2017.
  • Lost Stars author Claudia Gray will be writing another Star Wars novel, this one called New Republic: Bloodline. Note that this will not be a sequel to Lost Stars but a brand new story set six years before The Force Awakens. The book will be out in Spring 2016.
  • Delilah S. Dawson will be writing an eBook short called “The Perfect Weapon” which will focus on a character named Bazine (who was featured in the Vanity Fair alien photo shoot, the one in the lap of that bulky Bossk looking guy). It’ll be out in November. Delilah is new to Star Wars, so this will be her first story in the galaxy far, far away. To find out more about her, you can check out her official website and peruse some of her novels.
  • Landry Walker, also new to Star Wars, will be writing a series of novelettes: “High Noon on Jakku”, “All Creatures Great and Small”, “The Face of Evil”, and “The Crimson Corsair and the Lost Treasure of Count Dooku.” They’ll be released on December 1st. Walker is mostly known for his comic work and landed on the New York Times Best Sellers List for his graphic novel Odd Thomas.
  • Alan Dean Foster will be writing a short story called “Bait” which ties into The Force Awakens and will be appearing in Star Wars Insider #162 (on sale December 23). It stars Grungar, the bulky looking Bossk guy in the Vanity Fair photo shoot.

Best of all, you can listen to the audio for the Star Wars books panel from NYCC over on The Wookiee Gunner.
