'If the worlds at the Empire’s mercy stand any chance, it lies with an unlikely band of allies: Jyn Erso, a resourceful young woman seeking vengeance; Cassian Andor, a war-weary rebel commander; Bodhi Rook, a defector from the Empire’s military; Chirrut Îmwe, a blind holy man and his crack-shot companion, Baze Malbus; and K-2SO, a deadly Imperial droid turned against its former masters.

Heir to the Empire 

heir to the empire coverComing it at number 7 is a blast from the past, part of the now so called Star Wars Legends series of novels, Heir to the Empire.

The first of a extremely popular trilogy by Timothy Zahn, it is considered the book that revitalized the Star Wars franchise in the early 1990s which set the path for Lucas to begin making the prequel movies.

No longer considered formal canon, it is a wonderful story featuring fan favourite Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting Jedi twins. And Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of Jedi Knights.

But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords, Grand Admiral Thrawn, has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic. For this dark warrior has made two vital discoveries that could destroy everything the courageous men and women of the Rebel Alliance fought so hard to build.'
