5. New Star Wars Books

Coming in May and July are New Republic: Bloodline by Lost Stars author Claudia Gray, and Aftermath: Life Debt by Chuck Wendig, who penned the first installment in the Aftermath trilogy last year. What’s special about these two books is they both take place after Return of the Jedi, in what is now unexplored territory. Even more interesting, Bloodline takes place about six years before The Force Awakens. Perhaps “bloodline” refers to a certain important family featured in new movie?
