We don’t have a title yet, but we do have the synopsis and release date for the recently-announced Star Wars novel featuring Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos. Check it out!
“The last story never told in The Clone Wars television saga: A tale of trust, betrayal, love, and evil starring the hugely popular ex-Sith/never-Jedi female bounty hunter, Asajj Ventress! A tale written but never aired, now turned into a brand-new novel with the creative collaboration of the Lucasfilm Story Group and Dave Filoni, Executive Producer and Director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels!
When the Jedi decide to target Count Dooku—Darth Tyranus—himself, they turn to his ex-apprentice, Asajj Ventress, for help in getting close to the slippery Sith Lord. But when unexpected sparks fly between Ventress and Quinlan Vos, the unorthodox Jedi sent to work with her, the mission becomes a web of betrayal, alliances, secrets, and dark plotting that might just be the undoing of both Jedi and Sith—and everything in between!”
Although I’m not crazy about the “unexpected sparks” and Asajj being labeled as “ex-Sith/never-Jedi” (she was never a Sith even though she wanted to be, and although not officially recognized by the Jedi Order she was in fact trained as a Padawan in her childhood), this looks to be a very interesting addition to the Star Wars library.
The book, penned by Star Wars alum Christie Golden, will go on shelves July 7, 2015.
