New Book Announcement:
"Hello...what have we here?" - to the surprise of everyone, starwars.com officially announced a new book heading our way in July, named Inferno Squad. This book promises to take place directly after the events of Rogue One. Is this not just Episode IV? Well...yes, but I guess we are going to see the events of said Episode from an Imperial point of view.
Here is the official and brief synopsis:
The Rebellion may have heroes like Jyn Erso and Luke Skywalker. But the Empire has Inferno Squad.
After the humiliating theft of the Death Star plans and the resulting destruction of the battle station, the Empire is on the defensive. In response to this stunning defeat, the Imperial Navy has authorized the formation of an elite team of soldiers, known as Inferno Squad. Their mission: infiltrate and eliminate the remnants of Saw Gerrera’s Partisans. Following the death of their leader, the Partisans have carried on his extremist legacy, determined to thwart the Empire — no matter what the cost. Now, Inferno Squad must prove their status as the best of the best and take down the Partisans from within. But as the danger intensifies and the threat of discovery grows, how far will Inferno Squad go to ensure the safety of the Empire?
What I'm really hoping for is tonnes of little nods to what is going on in A New Hope, yes, this might be fan service but we know the story from the Rebel's perspective so why not the Imperials?
Also...Christie Golden! Her writing in Dark Disciple was superb so I'm thoroughly excited to see what she has to offer with this.
I promise, the next post will indeed be my review of Empire's End which I'm currently half way through!
