Scheduled for release on May 3rd, advanced copies and previews of the latest new canon novel Star Wars: Bloodline by Claudia Gray have been circulating. We have compiled some information about the situations of the main characters in the novel based on various descriptions online. There are some potential mild spoilers, so here is your official spoiler alert.

  • Star Wars: Bloodline is set 6 years prior to The Force Awakens
  • The novel will be written entirely from Leia's perspective
  • Han and Leia are still a couple
  • There will be flashbacks to earlier points in Han and Leia's relationship
  • Han owns a shipping company
  • Leia is on the cusp of retiring from her political career and becoming a full time crewmember on the Falcon
  • Ben Solo is 23 years old in the novel
  • Ben is still training with Luke at this time

In addition to this information, here is an excerpt we found posted from the novel:


"Never imagined this, Han had murmured, sitting up in their bed late at night, Ben's tiny head resting in the crook of his father's arm. "Having a kid. Even wanting a kid. But now he's here and -"

"And you're a dad." Leia had leaned closer, unable to resist the chance to tease her husband. "Just think hotshot. Someday you might even be a grandad."

Han's chuckle had warmed her. "Speak for yourself, sweetheart. Me, I ain't ever getting old."

"Princess Leia?"

Leia snapped out of her reverie, back into the here and now.

It looks like you can download a 3 chapter preview of Star Wars: Bloodline here.

The site also contains the following alternate synopsis:

In this thrilling new novel set in the years before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Leia must grapple with the dangers that threaten to cripple the fledgling democracy—from both within and without. Desperate to take action, senators are calling for the election of a First Senator. It is their hope that this influential post will bring strong leadership to a divided galaxy.

As the daughter of Darth Vader, Leia faces with distrust the prospect of any one person holding such a powerful position—even when supporters suggest Leia herself for the job. But a new enemy may make this path Leia’s only option. For at the edges of the galaxy, a mysterious threat is growing. . . .

This novel looks to bridge a lot of the story gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens! It definitely is worth picking up a copy on May 3rd!
