In a prequel to Star Wars: The force awakens, set roughly six years before the events of the film, Leia worries about threats to the New Republic, as senators call for the election of a powerful First Senator and a new enemy emerges.


<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER &bull; From the author of <i>Star Wars: Lost Stars </i>comes a thrilling novel set in the years before the events of <i>Star Wars: The Force Awakens</i>.<br><br>&ldquo;Unmissable . . . <i>Bloodline</i>&rsquo;s tense politics, vivid new characters, and perfectly characterized Leia make it feel as central to the <i>Star Wars</i> universe as one of the films.&rdquo;<b>&mdash;<i>Tordotcom</i></b><br></b><br>WITNESS THE BIRTH OF THE RESISTANCE<br> <b> </b><br> When the Rebellion defeated the Empire in the skies above Endor, Leia Organa believed it was the beginning to a lasting peace. But after decades of vicious infighting and partisan gridlock in the New Republic Senate, that hope seems like a distant memory.<br>  <br> Now a respected senator, Leia must grapple with the dangers that threaten to cripple the fledgling democracy&mdash;from both within and without. Underworld kingpins, treacherous politicians, and Imperial loyalists are sowing chaos in the galaxy. Desperate to take action, senators are calling for the election of a First Senator. It is their hope that this influential post will bring strong leadership to a divided galaxy. <br>  <br> As the daughter of Darth Vader, Leia faces with distrust the prospect of any one person holding such a powerful position&mdash;even when supporters suggest Leia herself for the job. But a new enemy may make this path Leia&rsquo;s only option. For at the edges of the galaxy, a mysterious threat is growing. . . .<br><br><b>Praise for <i>Bloodline</i></b><br> <b><i> </i></b><br> &ldquo;[Claudia] Gray paints a much more complete galaxy than we often get to see on the big screen. . . . Knowing that Rian Johnson (writer, director of <i>Star Wars: Episode VIII</i>) had some creative input on the novel provides hope that we haven&rsquo;t seen the last of all of these wonderful characters. . . . <i>Star Wars: Bloodline</i> isn&rsquo;t just a great <i>Star Wars</i> book, or a great Leia book, or a great book; it&rsquo;s a great introduction into the larger world of <i>Star Wars</i> in general.&rdquo;<b>&mdash;<i>ComicBookdotcom</i></b><br> <b><i> </i></b><br> &ldquo;<i>Bloodline</i> is a nonstop page-turner that grabs at heartstrings that you weren&rsquo;t aware of and yanks down on every one of them. The story is loaded with context for <i>The Force Awakens</i> that plants the seeds for The First Order in perfectly haunting ways, and leaves the reader grasping for more details on newly discovered favorite characters.&rdquo;<b>&mdash;<i>Inverse</i></b>

Decent Condition

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

This novel arrived in decent condition. It was wrapped in paper, in between 2 T-shirts I ordered along with it. There were a few scratches along the top and bottom of the spine, which is why I gave it 4/5 stars. Perhaps bubble wrap between the book and the paper wrapping would help solve this problem?
