This series of 9 books has re-energized my love of George Lucas’ world. The series starts about 40 “standard” years after Star Wars: A New Hope. Although some wonderful characters from Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi have passed on during the 40 years, the main focus of the series is Luke, Leia, Han and their families.
