Halo 5: Guardians is out today, and to celebrate, Gallery Books has given us two copies of Troy Denning’s Halo: Last Light to giveaway! Last Light is part detective story and part treasure hunt as detective Veta Lopis investigates a series of murders in an elaborate cave system despite the interference from Spartans who are hunting the caves for an ancient relic. As things sprawl into rebellion and warfare, the story heats up for lots of fun. On top of that, the book contains a downloadable content code for Halo 5: Guardians.

To win a copy of Halo: Last Light, just leave a comment in this post letting us know which Halo game is your favorite. We’ll pick two random winners Wednesday evening.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

The 602 Club: Episode S8 covers the new YA books released by Disney-Lucasfilm publishing including Weapon of a Jedi, Moving Target and Smuggler’s Run. Fair warning, there are lite spoilers, so you might want to steer clear until you’ve read the books. Good episode, though. Of the podcasts doing Star Wars book coverage, these guys are at the top of the game when it comes to discussion and sound quality.

Assembly of Geeks: Star Wars Rebels and NYCC 2015 features several guests include Richard and Sarah from Skywalking Through Neverland, and Dan Zehr from Coffee With Kenobi. In particular, Dan stops by to talk Star Wars Rebels with the hosts, plus this episode covers some highlights from New York Comic Con. Great episode.

BNN (Bombad Radio): Episode 10.12.2015 covers apps Disney is dropping, Rick Moranis news, 4K TV, movie news, video game news, a mini Star Wars: Battlefront beta report and comic releases. If you’re looking for a concentrated blast of news, they’ve got you covered. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Meanwhile, Master Dass Jennir is down to his last credit and faces a stark choice: compromise his ideals or starve. Being a Jedi may make him an outlaw, but does being an outlaw mean he’s no longer a Jedi? Darth Vader doesn’t care: He’s on Dass’s trail either way — and so is the dread assassin Falco Sang! Collecting STAR WARS: DARK TIMES #6-17, STAR WARS: DARK TIMES — BLUE HARVEST #0 and STAR WARS: DARK TIMES — OUT OF THE WILDERNESS #1-5.
