We may not have an official announcement, but thanks to a post on Elaine Cunningham’s blog we do now have a few more ideas of what to expect from Blood Oath! First off all, it’s post-LOTF, set in the “early days” of the Fate of the Jedi. However:
Blood Oath is a self-contained story, rather than an episode within a larger tale. While both have their place, I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to tell a largely self-contained story.
I wonder if this only the first of several paperback tie-ins to the main series? Shades of the original plan for the NJO, perhaps? Intriguing!
