Hutt fans, rejoice! The first Scourge mini-excerpt has been posted on Del Rey’s Star Wars Book Facebook page.  The mini-excerpt featured an all new character, Mander:

“A Jedi goes where he is needed,” said Mander. “Your brother, regardless of his fate, knew this. I taught him that, as I myself was taught. I will finish Toro’s task, and if I can, bring those responsible for his death to justice. I would appreciate your help.” He looked at the Bothan. “Both of you.”

Del Rey Editor Erich Schoeneweiss revealed in the comments section that Scourge will take place after the Hand of Thrawn duology and before Survivor’s Quest.   You can read more about Scourge in our exclusive interview with the author, Jeff GrubbScourge goes on sale April 24, 2012 in eBook and paperback formats.
