Ronin: A Visions Novel

Ronin: A Visions Novel by Emma Mieko Candon

A tie-in to the anime short film "The Duel" from the Star Wars: Visions series on Disney+, Ronin is the first ever full novel set in a re-imagined alternate Star Wars universe completely separate from the Legends and New Canon timelines. 

Forget everything you know about the history of the Star Wars galaxy, and dive into an all new world of Jedi and Sith based around the look and feel of feudal Japan. The book is written by a Japanese-American author.

This book isn't part of either the Legends or New Canon timelines. Don't expect it to fit in with any past or future Star Wars stories (even the movies!) except for the short film "The Duel".

The High Republic: Light of the Jedi

The High Republic: Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule
Tales of the ancient Jedi were a major staple of the old Star Wars Expanded Universe (now "Legends"), and now the new Star Wars canon is venturing there as well.  

Light of the Jedi is the first of the new The High Republic publishing program, telling stories of the Old Republic and the Jedi set 200 years before the movies. (This is actually a different time period than the Old Republic stories from the Legends timeline, which mostly take place thousands of years before the movies.)

The High Republic is a time when both the Jedi and the Republic are at the height of their power - but that doesn't mean there's any shortage of challenges and adventures!

The High Republic: Into the Dark

The High Republic: Into the Dark by Claudia Gray 
Published alongside the first High Republic adult novel, Light of the Jedi, this is a tie-in story written for mature young adult readers by Claudia Gray, well-regarded author of Lost Stars, Leia: Princess of Alderaan, and other Star Wars stories.

Into the Dark is part of new The High Republic publishing program, telling stories of the Old Republic and the Jedi set 200 years before the movies. In this case the story follows a bookish Jedi apprentice who's drawn into galactic events against his will, entwined in a dangerous mystery in space.

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.

Brotherhood

Brotherhood by Mike Chen

Though The Clone Wars TV show is part of the new Star Wars canon, there are still surprisingly few canon books about the Clone Wars period. But here comes a new one: Brotherhood is a story about Obi-Wan and Anakin coming to terms with working together as adults amid a galaxy at war. The story takes place in between Attack of the Clones and the beginning of The Clone Wars animated movie and TV show, and just after the Padmé novel Queen's Hope.

This will be the first Star Wars novel from author Mike Chen, though he did also write a short story for The Empire Strikes Back: From a Certain Point of View.

The Empire Strikes Back: From a Certain Point of View

The Empire Strikes Back: From a Certain Point of View by various authors
Here comes the sequel to Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View: To commemorate the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, 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 with the first one, much of the money from sales of this book will be going to a charity that helps kids get access to books and education.

This is the first New Canon take on background characters from The Empire Strikes Back, but if you can't get enough, also check out Tales of the Bounty Hunters on the Legends alternate timeline!

Force Collector

Force Collector by Kevin Shinick
A lighthearted story about a high school kid running away from home to learn more about the Jedi, this is, well, not the most adult of Disney-Lucasfilm's line of young adult Star Wars novels. But that doesn't mean it's not a fun read, and it also has some small connections to places and things from The Rise of Skywalker movie and Disney's Galaxy's Edge theme park.
