Wow, we’re finally back into the swing of things. We’ve got a jam-packed book news for this week, with some juicy spoilers for the Legacy of the Force series and my reviews of all the comic book releases this month. As for the SWAN Book Club Update, discussion is now open for The Last Command, the last book in the Thrawn Trilogy. I do beleive signups are still open for a few more days, so go check out the forums. This is my third book in the club, and I just became a SWAN Sub-Luitenant!

A small note here: Remember those spoilers from Sacrifice I posted a couple weeks back? They were confirmed. Highlight this if you haven’t read it: Jacen kills Mara! I know a lot more, but I don’t want to spoil for you guys too much. No, I haven’t been able to pick it up yet, but of course I’ll have a full review of it when I do!

It’s been a while since I last updated, so I’ll go over all my finds of the past few weeks. I finished Tempest a few weeks back, and I’ll have a review of that up soon. I haven’t yet been able to pick up the rest of the Legacy of the Force books, but it’s been a busy month for comics. In June, I was able to pick up all of Dark Horse’s Star Wars releases: Legacy #13, Rebellion #7 and Dark Times #3. After a few stellar issues, Legacy #13 was a little dissapointing. The story shifted from Cade’s rescue mission to a short stand-alone story about an assasination attempt on the former Emperor Fel. I really enjoyed Rebellion #7. The last few Rebellion issues were a little lame (if I may say so), but the story is really picking up speed. Last but not least, fans were reminded that Dark Times still existed after their nearly four month hiatus. I know that stinks for the big fans of the comic, but I recently found out that is was because Doug Wheatley recently had a son and took a short leave of absense. As for the issue, it was ok. These are definatly the “dark times,” as the issue ended with Bomo discovering his wife was dead and his daughter was sold into slavery. Find the conclusion in issue #4, coming next January!

There aren’t any big releases this month, after we recover from the releases thrown at us in May and June. The only big peice of news for this week is some spoilers from Inferno, the next book in the Legacy of the Force series. If you don’t know, Inferno will be written by Aaron Allstron and is scheduled for release this fall. Ok, maybe it’s not a gigantic spoiler, but here’s the picture that was released on Starwars.com.

That’s it for this week’s Book News. Be sure to check in every day for this week’s Revenge of the Blogger post-a-thon!
