Master & Apprentice

Master & Apprentice by Claudia Gray
The professional and personal trials of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his young apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi were once a staple of Star Wars chapter books for kids, and inspired several comic book stories too. Now, there's finally an adult novel featuring the old-school Jedi duo, bringing their pre-Episode I adventures into the new Star Wars canon.

Master & Apprentice , which takes place about eight years before The Phantom Menace, is written by Claudia Gray, popular author of Star Wars novels Lost Stars, Bloodline, and Leia, Princess of Alderaan.

Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View

Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View by various authors
This book isn't actually a novel, but something much more special: To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the original Star Wars movie, dozens of authors came together to write 40 short stories, each one retelling part of the movie from a new perspective. Most of the stories are told from the point of view of a minor background character or other onlooker to the events of the movie.

As if that wasn't cool enough, the authors all contributed for free, with the publisher donating the proceeds to charity.

This is the first New Canon take on background characters from Episode IV: A New Hope, but if you can't get enough, also check out Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina in the Legends alternate timeline!

Resistance Reborn

Resistance Reborn by Rebecca Roanhorse
Set just after The Last Jedi, and before The Rise of Skywalker, this book explains how the Resistance starts to recover from its devastating defeat on Crait.

Despite being published as part of the lead-up to The Rise of Skywalker though, it doesn't lead directly into the story of the movie.
