By Jason Fry
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

#1: Edge of the Galaxy:
a fantastic job at showing how our youngsters uncover the truth behind the imperial propaganda and how oppressive and evil this new tyranny truly is
[...] more impressive than the sadistic actions of over the top villain Count Vidian from the "A New Dawn" book.....read full review

#2: Rebel in the Ranks:
the writing is engaging, the story is interesting and I am still very eager to see young Zare in action...read full review

#3: Imperial Justice:
covers dark ground and shows how much dirt you get on your self trying to fight the empire in secret

[] Bloodline
Trade Paperback Novel by Claudia Gray
Arrow Books ( [UK] )

This story occurs approximately 28 years after Episode IV: A New Hope:
With the Endor fireworks a distant memory, Leia Organa has put up with decades of partisan squabbling as a member of the New Republic Senate. Leia finds herself grappling with dangers from within and without, each with the power to cripple the fledgling democracy and dash every hope for a prosperous future.
To make things worse, the Senate has begun to call for the election of a First Senator: an influential and charismatic figure to bring order to the divided government. As the daughter of Darth Vader, Leia knows all too well the price to be paid if the New Republic hands power to a single individual.
Unfortunately, a new enemy represents a threat on such a scale that New Republic may be left with no other choice.
As Leia contemplates starting a second Rebellion, evil takes root at the edges of the galaxy. The First Order is growing, and it will not stay silent

Maul is an "untested warrior" who, under the tutelage of Darth Sidious, is barred from engaging with the Jedi. But when Maul discovers that a young Padawan has been taken prisoner by an underworld crime lord, the Sith apprentice "seizes an opportunity to test his skills against a real Jedi but also maybe turn someone else to the dark side". This is a story that promises a Maul who has "lots of rage, a need to take revenge against the Jedi, and problems taking orders."

The first issue of this five issue mini-series is slated for release in February.
