‘Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi’ new novel out today

I’m totally excited for the new Star Wars nine-book series, Fate of the Jedi.  The third book comes out today, Abyss.  I’ve really been enjoying the Legacy of the Force series (still have a couple to go on those) and look forward to these next adventures.

Here is a description of Fate of the Jedi from Wookieepedia:

Fate of the Jedi launches a huge story arc, with heroic roles for the galaxy’s most beloved characters — Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa Solo, and their surviving children, Ben Skywalker and Jaina Solo. While Luke and Ben set off on the journey of a lifetime — of discovery and hardship, of obstacles and victories—the others remain in more familiar territory, dealing with the aftermath of the civil war that rocked the galaxy in the Legacy of the Force.


It has been two years since the death of Darth Caedus. Chief of State Natasi Daala has ushered the Galactic Alliance into a time of unprecented calm, and now the entire galaxy stands poised to freely embrace the same enduring peace that Jacen Solo once sought to impose as a Sith Lord.

In this new era, Luke Skywalker finds himself battling control of the very order he founded. After Jacen’s fall to the dark side, much of the galaxy sees Jedi Knights as rogue soldiers too dangerous and unstable to leave unfettered. It is a view shared by Chief Daala, who has sworn to bring the order under government control–or disband it entirely.

But the greatest threat to the Jedi remains unseen, a faceless menace even more lethal and insidious than the Sith who have plagued the Jedi for millennia. Awakened by Jacen Solo during his five-year odyssey, this hidden peril is reaching out from the darkest corner of the galaxy, assaulting Jedi Knights in ways that even Luke has yet to perceive–but which he must quickly thwart if he is to have any hope of redeeming the New Jedi Order.

Below you’ll find some videos from San Diego Comic Con featuring the authors discuss the Fate of the Jedi series.  The authors discuss where they got the idea for the series, how they collaborate on the series (out of nine total books, each author writes three), their favorite bits of the series to write, and the audiobook versions of the books.
