Over on edelweiss they’ve posted some new info on Christie Golden’s upcoming Ventress/Vos novel.

A tale written but never aired, now turned into a brand-new novel with the creative collaboration of the Lucasfilm Story Group and Dave Filoni, Executive Producer and Director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels!

When the Jedi decide to target Count Dooku—Darth Tyranus—himself, they turn to his ex-apprentice, Asajj Ventress, for help in getting close to the slippery Sith Lord. But when unexpected sparks fly between Ventress and Quinlan Vos, the unorthodox Jedi sent to work with her, the mission becomes a web of betrayal, alliances, secrets, and dark plotting that might just be the undoing of both Jedi and Sith—and everything in between!

One of the most captivating characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and a source of heated rumors, Asajj Ventress is a figure that has latched on to the imaginations of Star Wars fans. From her rich personality to her striking looks, Ventress is person worth further focus.

Asajj was given birth on the page during the creation of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Concept artist Dermot Power designed a female apprentice for Darth Sidious. While Dooku was used instead, the design for Ventress didn’t go to waste. She was picked up for the Clone Wars. Leland Chee named her Asajj after Lady Asaji Washizua, a character from Akira Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood. She appeared in the Dark Horse comics, in video games,  in Genndy Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars, and later, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Whether she’ll live to see the light of a day in future films or television series, one thing fans can look forward to is her appearance in Christie Golden’s upcoming novel which will be out next summer. Until then, let us enjoy the wonderfully dark and complex beauty that is Ventress. Continue Reading The Asajj Ventress Gallery…
