Star Wars X-Wing: The Bacta War by Michael Stackpoole

Tyrant Ysanne Isard has seized control of Thyferra, intending to use its supply of medicinal bacta for a decidedly unhealthy purpose–to destabilize and annihilate the New Republic. Undermanned and without Alliance support, Rogue Squadron faces an overwhelmingly superior force–and nearly impossible task: to oppose Isard’s plans, defeat her Star Destroyer fleet, and free Thyferra from the grip of a madman in a winner-take-all battle.

 

 Inside the Word of the Star Wars Trilogy by James Luceno

Inside the Worlds of Star Wars is the complete guide to the locations from the Star Wars Classic Trilogy. The book is illustrated with 20 full-color, fantastically intricate cross-sections, and features an array of spot artworks, 3-D plans, more than 60 crystal-clear photographs, and detailed orthographic keys to create an extraordinary visual experience.

 

Sacrifice by Karen Traviss

Civil war rages as the Galactic Alliance-led by Cal Omas and the Jedi forces of Luke Skywalker-battles a confederation of breakaway planets that rally to the side of rebellious Corellia. Suspected of involvement in an assassination plot against Queen Mother Tenel Ka of the Hapes Consortium, Han and Leia Solo are on the run, hunted by none other than their own son, Jacen, whose increasingly authoritarian tactics as head of GA security have led Luke and Mara Skywalker to fear that their nephew may be treading perilously close to the dark side.

 

Vision of the Future by Timothy Zahn

The Empire’s master plan is under way. The New Republic is on the verge of civil war and the rumor that the legendary Admiral Thrawn has returned from the dead is rallying the Imperial forces. Now Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and their allies face the challenge of their lives. They must infiltrate a hidden fortress filled with Imperial fanatics, rendezvous with a double-dealing Imperial commander, and journey into enemy territory to learn the identity of those responsible for an act of unthinkable genocide. But most important of all is the truth about Thrawn. In his hands–alive or dead–rests the fate of the New Republic.
