Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse is out today. To kick things off, we have an interview with the author, Troy Denning which you can read here. We asked Troy about the events of the book, how things led up to this, and what we might expect in the future. Be warned, the interview does include spoilers from the novel.

We also have several reviews of Apocalypse. On one hand, Corax, Synlah and I weigh in on a round-robin review that delves into some heavy spoilers. For a differing opinion, LaneWinree chimes in with his reservations on the novel.

Apocalypse is the last novel in the Fate of the Jedi series and is available in hardback and digital editions. The book also includes excerpts for Aaron Allston’s upcoming novel X-Wing: Mercy Kill and Jeff Grubb’s Star Wars: Scourge.

Star Wars Books has posted their sixth excerpt from Troy Denning’s upcoming novel Apocalypse.

Within the hour, the Jedi would penetrate the immense structure in force, and the Circle of Lords would come to understand how badly they had underestimated Luke Skywalker.

Star Wars Books has posted their fifth excerpt from Troy Denning’s upcoming novel Apocalypse.

When Allana did not reply, her mother took her hand. “They’re going to be fine. If anyone can do this, it’s Han and Leia Solo.”
“I don’t think you can promise that,” Allana said, continuing to study the cloud-veiled planet in front of them. “Even Grandpa and Grandma don’t usually fly into the middle of a Sith ambush— at least not on purpose.”
