Earlier today we got word of the first The Force Awakens tie-in novel Star Wars: Aftermath as part of the "Journey to The Force Awakens" books that will be released later this year. The description that was posted on Barnes & Noble and was noticed by the folks at Jedi-Bibliothek. The description reads,
Journey to The Force Awakens.
The second Death Star is destroyed. The Emperor and his powerful enforcer, Darth Vader, are rumored to be dead. The Galactic Empire is in chaos.
Across the galaxy, some systems celebrate, while in others Imperial factions tighten their grip. Optimism and fear reign side by side.
And while the Rebel Alliance engages the fractured forces of the Empire, a lone Rebel scout uncovers a secret Imperial meeting...
I have to say, this sounds fantastic! The concept of a secret Imperial meeting gives me chills because it sounds like it's setting up the Empire we will be seeing in The Force Awakens. No word yet on who's writing this or when the release date is, but suffice to say the description has me excited and really looking forward to the book.
