Discover | The Legends of Luke Skywalker by Ken Liu


I became disenfranchised with Star Wars when The Force Awakens (Star Wars 7) was released and it's taken me a few years to warm up to the new Star Wars, so I missed the recent tie in novels. However with the release of Thrawn my interested was piqued again and here's another book in the new Star Wars cannon which may be worth reading.

Written by Ken Liu, who is known to fantasy and science-fiction readers for his novel The Grace of Kings, a collection of short stories, Paper Menagerie as well as his translations of Chinese author Liu Cixin’s The Three-Body Problem. Liu has also racked up quite a collection of awards for his work, counting among them the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus, so I expect this to be a decent novel.

Liu isn’t the only author to be contributing to Journey to the Last Jedi series Claudia Gray is writing a book about about a sixteen-year-old Princess Leia, which is set before A New Hope, called Princess of Alderaan 

The Princess of Alderaan is set for a release date of September 1, 2017 and The Legends of Luke Skywalker, October 31, 2017.
