[] First excerpt from second Aftermath novel

EW.com has the first excerpt from Aftermath: Life Debt, the second novel in Chuck Wendig's post-Return of the Jedi trilogy, available in July. Following on from the events of Aftermath, Rebel pilot Norra Wexley and her son Temmin "Snap" Wexley have saved Wedge Antilles from a regrouping Imperial remnant on the planet Akiva. Now, in Life Debt, Princess Leia sends Norra, Temmin, Zabrak bounty hunter Jas Amari, and former Imperial Sinjir Rath Velus on a mission that will inevitably mean they will collide with Han Solo and Chewbacca as the heroes try to liberate Chewie's homeworld, Kashyyyk:

The grass swishes and shakes as Sinjir crawls up on his belly. “Ow!” he says, flexing his hand and popping the knuckle of his thumb in his mouth. “This grass is slicing me to bits.”
“It drinks your blood,” Jas says, easing closer. “Thirstgrass sustains itself on the creatures who walk through it. Little sips from little cuts.”
He frowns. “Lovely. I’m here for my hourly update. And my hourly update is: I am bored. Bored out of my skull.”
“That’s always your hourly update,” Norra says.
“Because it’s true every hour.”...

[] Young adult Ahsoka novel coming this Fall

As exclusively announced on Nerdist.com, Disney-Lucasfilm Press will be releasing a young adult novel featuring Ahsoka Tano in October. Penned by  Emily Kate Johnston (A Thousand Nights, The Story of Owen) this, as yet untitled, story will detail Ahsoka's "lost years" - those between her leaving the Jedi Order and becoming Fulcrum:

Ahsoka Tano, fan favorite character from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, will be the star of her own young adult novel from Disney Lucasfilm Press this October 11, 2016! Fans have long wondered what happened to Ahsoka after she left the Jedi Order near the end of the Clone Wars, and before she re-appeared as the mysterious Rebel operative Fulcrum in Rebels. Finally, her story will begin to be told. Following her experiences with the Jedi and the devastation of Order 66, Ahsoka is unsure she can be part of a larger whole ever again. But her desire to fight the evils of the Empire and protect those who need it will lead her right to Bail Organa, and the Rebel Alliance…

[Avavilable now...] [] Dark Disciple
Trade paperback Novel by Christie Golden
Arrow ( [UK] )

Approximately 19 years before Episode IV: A New Hope:
When Count Dooku orders the massacre of a flotilla of helpless refugees, the Jedi Council feels it has no choice but to take drastic action: targeting the man responsible for so many war atrocities, Count Dooku himself.
But the ever-elusive Dooku is dangerous prey for even the most skilled hunter. So the Council makes the bold decision to bring both sides of the Force’s power to bear—pairing brash Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos with infamous one-time Sith acolyte Asajj Ventress. Though Jedi distrust for the cunning killer who once served at Dooku’s side still runs deep, Ventress’s hatred for her former master runs deeper. She’s more than willing to lend her copious talents as a bounty hunter—and assassin—to Vos’s quest.
Includes short story Kindred Spirits by Christie Golden, first published in Star Wars Insider #159.

[ Aftermath ] [] Aftermath
Trade Paperback Novel by Chuck Wending
Del Rey ( [US] )

Between 4 and 5 years after Episode IV: A New Hope:
As the Empire reels from its critical defeats at the Battle of Endor, the Rebel Alliance — now a fledgling New Republic — presses its advantage by hunting down the enemy’s scattered forces before they can regroup and retaliate. But above the remote planet Akiva, an ominous show of the enemy’s strength is unfolding. Out on a lone reconnaissance mission, pilot Wedge Antilles watches Imperial Star Destroyers gather like birds of prey circling for a kill, but is taken captive before he can report back to the New Republic leaders.
Meanwhile, on the planet’s surface, former Rebel fighter Norra Wexley has returned to her native world — war weary, ready to reunite with her estranged son, and eager to build a new life in some distant place. But when Norra intercepts Wedge Antilles’s urgent distress call, she realizes her time as a freedom fighter is not yet over. What she doesn’t know is just how close the enemy is—or how decisive and dangerous her new mission will be.
Determined to preserve the Empire’s power, the surviving Imperial elite are converging on Akiva for a top-secret emergency summit — to consolidate their forces and rally for a counterstrike. But they haven’t reckoned on the Norra and her newfound allies — her technical genius son, a Zabrak bounty hunter, and a reprobate Imperial defector — who are prepared to do whatever they must to end the Empire’s oppressive reign once and for all.
