Fancy a chance to read this newest Star Wars title before anybody else!?! I'm giving away an Advance Reading Copy of Aaron Allston's Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Outcast to one lucky winner who'll get his or her hands on it before the March 24th, 2009 pub date. For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

Here's the blurb:

After a violent civil war and the devastation wrought by the now-fallen Darth Caedus, the Galactic Alliance is in crisis-and in need. From all corners, politicians, power brokers, and military leaders converge on Coruscant for a crucial summit to restore order, negotiate differences, and determine the future of their unified worlds. But even more critical, and far more uncertain, is the future of the Jedi.

In a shocking move, Chief of State Natasi Daala orders the arrest of Luke Skywalker for failing to prevent Jacen Solo's turn to the dark side and his subsequent reign of terror as a Sith Lord. But it's only the first blow in an anti-Jedi backlash fueled by a hostile government and suspicious public. When Jedi Knight Valin Horn, scion of a politically influential family, suffers a mysterious psychotic break and becomes a dangerous fugitive, the Jedi become the target of a media-driven witch hunt. Facing conviction on the damning charges, Luke must strike a bargain with the calculating Daala: his freedom in exchange for his exile from Coruscant and from the Jedi Order.

Though forbidden to intervene in Jedi affairs, Luke is determined to keep history from being repeated. With his son, Ben, at his side, Luke sets out to unravel the shocking truth behind Jacen Solo's corruption and downfall. But the secrets he uncovers among the enigmatic Force mystics of the distant world Dorin may bring his quest-and life as he knows it-to a sudden end. And all the while, another Jedi Knight, consumed by the same madness as Valin Horn, is headed for Coruscant on a fearsome mission that could doom the Jedi Order . . . and devastate the entire galaxy.

Oh, and I know times are tough and publishers try to save money where they can. But man, this is as crappy a cover as I've seen in quite some time. . .

The whole series is going to have these types of covers; they wanted to try a new design out, and I agree, it could be better - it's not really 'star wars' to me, but I am glad that Luke's son Ben is getting a place, even if it is only on the back cover!

You can expect my entry Pat, I'm rabid to read this!

I kind of like this design, actually; it's going to stand out on the shelf among all the others in the series.
