What happened after the events of Rogue One? Well, Star Wars: A New Hope of course. But what if that’s only part of the story? Surely the Empire wouldn’t let such a crushing blow go unpunished right? These are the questions Christie Golden answers in her new book, Inferno Squad.

Here’s the official description:

The Rebellion may have heroes like Jyn Erso and Luke Skywalker. But the Empire has Inferno Squad.

After the humiliating theft of the Death Star plans and the resulting destruction of the battle station, the Empire is on the defensive. In response to this stunning defeat, the Imperial Navy has authorized the formation of an elite team of soldiers, known as Inferno Squad. Their mission: infiltrate and eliminate the remnants of Saw Gerrera’s Partisans. Following the death of their leader, the Partisans have carried on his extremist legacy, determined to thwart the Empire — no matter what the cost. Now, Inferno Squad must prove their status as the best of the best and take down the Partisans from within. But as the danger intensifies and the threat of discovery grows, how far will Inferno Squad go to ensure the safety of the Empire?

Star Wars books can be hit or miss but when they’re done well, they build on and enhance the experience of the movies, which this books seems like it will do.

Chris grew up during the Disney renaissance of animation and took his first trip to Disney World when he was ten. Even though he has loved Disney his whole life, his obsession didn't start until he began planning a trip for his honeymoon. Right now, his primary job (at least the one that doesn't pay the bills) is to indoctrinate his daughter with his love of Disney while at the same time convincing his wife to move to Orlando so he can become a tour guide in the parks. He can also be found indulging in his nerdy side (both Disney related and otherwise) at nerdintherealworld.wordpress.com.
