First blurbs for new novels

[ Del Rey ]

Following Friday's announcement from Del Rey that they are relaunching their Star Wars adult fiction line with four new novels that will adhere to the new cohesive canon policy from Lucasfilm Story Group, Random House has released the marketing blurbs for each of the forthcoming novels.
All the blurbs contain similar preambles: "It's an all-new Star Wars galaxy going forward-an exciting new era of storytelling. [...] BRAND-NEW ERA IN STAR WARS STORYTELLING: With the creation of the Disney/Lucasfilm Story Group, all Star Wars fiction—movies, television, video games, books, comics—will now share equally in the design and development of the Star Wars galaxy. Every novel, beginning with Star Wars: A New Dawn, will be a true part of official Star Wars continuity!"

Here the plot blurb for each of the four forthcoming novels :
