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. It's also fun for people who have been reading other canon books and comics, because it brings together a lot of different characters from them - especially from the Bloodline and Aftermath books and the Poe Dameron comics.

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.

A Crash of Fate

A Crash of Fate by Zoraida Córdova
Been looking for another epic Star Wars teen romance novel ever since Lost Stars? Of course you have.

The book is also a tie-in to the Disney's Galaxy's Edge theme park, which is set on Batuu.

Though officially a young adult novel, A Crash of Fate is 350 pages long and part of the same more-mature publishing line as Lost Stars, Ahsoka, Queen's Shadow, and other great books.

The Darth Bane saga

 
The Darth Bane saga by Drew Karpyshyn
A thousand years before the events of the Star Wars movies, the last Sith Empire was defeated...but one ambitious survivor saved the Sith Order by taking it underground, setting the stage for the rise of Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader a millennium later.

Darth Plagueis

Darth Plagueis by James Luceno
A story set over the course of decades, this is the history how the Sith rose again to power through the schemes of Darth Plagueis, the ambitious Sith Lord who trained the later-emperor Palpatine in the ways of the Force! 

In many ways, it's more of a biography of Palpatine (a.k.a. Darth Plagueis) than of Plagueis himself, so it comes very much recommended for anyone interested in young Palpatine as well.

A fan-favorite novel, and something of a masterpiece of the late Legends publishing days, pulling together and drawing dots between many of the other Legends books, comics, and even video games set during the prequel era.
