When the old Star Wars "Expanded Universe" was retired to Legendary status, I was torn apart. I had grown to love the novels that were being published each year and going to Dragon Con to meet the authors was a special day for me each year. At the same time, I knew that in exchange for this sacrifice, I would be getting more Star Wars movies.
Thankfully, that exchange has already proven to be extremely valuable. Now I am graced with a universe filled with new adventures and exciting opportunities!
Meanwhile, while the previous published works of the EU have been moved to the "maybe it happened, but probably not" section of the franchise, new novels have emerged that continue to fill my shelves at home.
Today, a new novel joins the ranks:
Claudia Gray has traditionally published YA novels, but she joined the Star Wars Universe with the New York Times Bestseller Lost Stars last year. While technically a YA novel itself, Lost Stars was a fantastic story that really helped give a face to people who found themselves divided between the Empire and the Rebellion. I read the entire book in just a few days and couldn't wait to get my hands on more!
Thankfully, other readers agreed and Claudia was announced to be working on a new story.
I don't know much, outside of the premise discussed on the web, but I really enjoyed Lost Stars and I am eager to pick up this newest work!
Now, if you'll excuse me... I have a novel to read!!!
