Star Wars: Tales of Kenobi
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A SINGLE VOLUME—TWO THRILLING NOVELS FROM THE STAR WARS EXPANDED UNIVERSE, FEATURING A YOUNG OBI-WAN KENOBI
Kenobi—John Jackson Miller
Tatooine, the harsh desert planet on the edge of civilized space, is an unlikely place to find a Jedi Master in hiding. Known to locals only as “Ben,” the bearded and robed offworlder shares nothing of his past and goes through great pains to remain an outsider. But when violence erupts between some of Tatooine’s farmers and a tribe of marauding Tusken Raiders, Ben finds himself drawn into the conflict. It’s a move that may reveal him as Obi-Wan Kenobi, hero of the Clone Wars and an enemy of the Empire—and endanger his true mission as protector of the galaxy’s last hope.
The Approaching Storm—Alan Dean Foster
The Republic is decaying and forces of discontent are threatening the collapse of the galaxy. At the request of the Supreme Chancellor Palpatine the Jedi Council sends two Jedi Knights, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luminara Unduli, along with their Padawans Anakin Skywalker and Barriss Offee, to quell the growing secessionist movement on the planet Ansion. To succeed, the Jedi will have to fulfill near-impossible tasks, stalked all the while by an enemy sworn to see the negotiations unravel and the mission fail.
Star Wars: Bounty Hunter Wars (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions)
THREE THRILLING NOVELS BY K. W. JETER ABOUT THE BOUNTY HUNTER WARS, A TRILOGY IN THE STAR WARS EXPANDED UNIVERSE
The Mandalorian Armor
In the hope of quelling the Rebellion Prince Xizor proposes a cunning plan to the Emperor and Darth Vader: smash the power of the Bounty Hunter’s Guild by turning its members against each other, and the survivors against the Rebellion. The fiercely independent Boba Fett jumps at the chance to destroy his rivals but when he realizes the game is rigged, he finds himself the target of murderous factions, criminal conspiracies, and the evil at the Empire’s dark heart.
The once powerful Bounty Hunter’s Guild has been shattered and the posting of an enormous bounty on a renegade Imperial stormtrooper is about to start a frenzy of murderous greed among its warring factions. Boba Fett embarks on his mission to claim the prize unaware that his every move leads him closer to a trap set by the devious Prince Xizor. Fett will die before becoming Xizor’s pawn in the Emperors war against the Rebels—and given the deadly challenge he now faces he may have to.
When Boba Fett stumbles across evidence implicating Prince Xizor in the murder of Luke Skywalker’s aunt and uncle, he makes an enemy of someone who will kill to cover his tracks. Fett also also crosses paths with an amnesiac young woman named Neelah, who may be the key to the mystery—or a dangerous decoy leading him into a murderous ambush. Although Fett hopes to turn Xizor’s hidden enemies against him he knows that his chances for survival are slim—even for someone as skilled and relentless as Boba Fett.
