Star Wars Books has posted mini-excerpt #3 for Jeff Grubb’s upcoming novel Star Wars: Scourge.

“Did you Voice her?” asked Reen.

“’Voice’ her?” replied Mander, looking perplexed.

“You know. Voice her. Jedi Hoodoo. Mind tricks.” She made a theatrical wave of her hand. “Tell her ‘You want to let us land on the planet’ or something like that. And then she agrees and we go off.”

“It doesn’t work quite like that,” said Mander.

Scourge will be out on April 24th. You can check out the previous excerpt here: #1, and #2. And feel free to discuss the new excerpt on our forums.

‘X-Wing: Mercy Kill’ Blurb

In case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the new blurb for Aaron Allston’s upcoming X-Wing novel Mercy Kill.

The intrepid spies, pilots, and sharpshooters of Wraith Squadron are back in an all-new Star Wars adventure, which transpires just after the events of the Fate of the Jedi series!

Three decades have passed since Wraith Squadron carried out its last mission. Taking on the most dangerous and daring operations, the rogues and misfits of the elite X-Wing unit became legends of the Rebellion and the Second Galactic Civil War, before breaking up and going their separate ways. Now their singular skills are back in vital demand—for a tailor-made Wraith Squadron mission.

A powerful general in the Galactic Alliance Army, once renowned for his valor, is suspected of participating in the infamous Lecersen Conspiracy, which nearly toppled the Alliance back into the merciless hands of the Empire. With orders to expose and apprehend the traitor—and license to do so by any and all means—the Wraiths will become thieves, pirates, impostors, forgers . . . and targets, as they put their guts, their guns, and their riskiest game plan to the test against the most lethal of adversaries. -Random House

Remember, you can catch your first look at Mercy Kill by reading the excerpt at the end of Troy Denning’s Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse.
