If like me, you are struggling for a few last minute gifts then look no further than these two new Star Wars books.
Star Wars: Scoundrels – by Timothy Zahn
Set just after Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, Scoundrels is written by the New York Times best selling author Timothy Zahn and stars favourites including Han Solo, Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian. The Death Star has just been destroyed and Han Solo still needs the money to pay off the bounty on his head. Now the opportunity to make that money and even a profit has walked into his life in the form of the perfect heist. With nine like-minded scoundrels, he and Chewbacca just might be able to pull it off and live to tell the tale. Available now, published by Arrow, RRP £7.99.
Star Wars: Razor’s Edge – by Martha Wells
A Star Wars debut for author Martha Wells and she launches with a brand-new adventure starring Princess Leia and new friends Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, in a time just after the destruction of the Death Star in Star Wars IV A New Hope (I’m intrigued to know which of these two books comes first). Princess Leia Organa is on a mission for the Rebel Alliance when Imperial forces attack. Now she, Han and Luke are on their own, working with pirates and dealing with traitors as they race the clock to protect the secrecy of a crucial meeting of Rebel conspirators. Available now in hardback, published by Century, RRP £19.99.
