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.

Dooku: Jedi Lost (Audiobook and Script)

Dooku: Jedi Lost by Cavan Scott
Unlike other Star Wars audiobooks, which are readings of books that were written for print, Dooku: Jedi Lost was made especially for audio - the first Star Wars book of its kind. It's also narrated by a full cast playing the different characters in the story, in a way more like a radio play than a book.

The "book" is a sort of origin story for Count Dooku, telling the backstory of how he rose in the Jedi ranks and ultimately ended up leaving the order and turning to the dark side. In the story, his background is being researched during the Clone Wars by his apprentice, Asajj Ventress.

If you don't like to listen to audiobooks or aren't able to, you can also buy the script of the story as a printed book.

Thrawn

Thrawn by Timothy Zahn
Because author Timothy Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy kicked off the Legends publishing program in the early 1990s, it holds a special place in the hearts of Star Wars book fans. So for lots of us it was a big disappointment to see those books overwritten by the new movies. But that doesn't mean the trilogy's namesake character, blue-skinned military genius Grand Admiral Thrawn, is gone for good.

Now the fan-favorite character is back in the Star Wars canon with this novel about the beginnings of his career in the Imperial Navy, leading into his role in Season 3 of the Star Wars: Rebels TV show. And he's in good hands: The book is written by the same author as the original Thrawn Trilogy. In fact, this book could fit almost as well into the Legends timeline as it does into the New Canon!

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 viewpoint 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.

But when a group of high-level Imperials convene for a secret meeting on the planet Akiva, they soon find themselves on the defensive against an impromptu collection of rag-tag rebels, who will later go on to even greater adventures! Meanwhile, Imperial Admiral Rae Sloane, an outsider to the circles of galactic power, finds herself tasked with holding together the faltering Empire.

These books have gotten a kind of "love it or hate it" reaction from readers. Written in an unconventional style. Everything is happening in third-person present tense. Many short, incomplete sentences. But we found them really entertaining, with good character development.
