A few months back author Paul S. Kemp confirmed that a character from Star Wars: The Clone Wars would be making an appearance in his upcoming novel Lords Of The Sith. The book is set for release on April 15th, 2015 and, unlike previous novels, will be a part of the new official canon. Now the Star Wars books 2014 sampler has been released, and along with it the mystery character in question has been revealed....
It's Cham Syndulla!
There has been much speculation about the future of Cham's character as of late, especially after it was revealed that Hera from Star Wars Rebels would share his last name, Syndulla. Lords Of The Sith is set after Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith and before Rebels, so given Cham's involvement it could tie into the television much more than we previously thought.
You can pre-order the full novel here. Or if you would like to read the excerpt featuring Cham, you can download it for free here and on the Apple Ibooks store.
