Blurbs for Red Harvest and Fate of the Jedi: Conviction

Ewan spotted these summaries in the Random House Spring 2011 catalog. First up, Joe Schreiber’s Death Troopers followup, Red Harvest:

Strange things are happening in a Sith Academy, where the Dark Lord in charge has barricaded himself away, unexplained violence is on the rise, and the apprentices are growing more and more frightened. When a mercenary arrives with a delivery for the Sith Lord and a hostage Jedi
in tow, the situation reaches a boiling point. Only a Jedi Master, looking for the missing Jedi, can hope to get her and himself out alive.

The other, for Aaron Allston’s Conviction, contains some hefty spoilers for the next book, Troy Denning’s Vortex, which will be out in December. Highlight to read:

In this installment of the bestselling Fate of the Jedi series, the evil entity called Abeloth is on the run–but still not giving up it’s plans to destroy the galaxy. Despite the almost-friendship between Ben Skywalker and the Sith apprentice Vestara, the Jedi and Sith have dropped all pretenses of cooperation, and each side is making plans to rout the other.

And on Coruscant, ex-Jedi Tahiri Veila awaits sentencing for the crime of treason, and although they’ve effectively removed Chief of State Natasi Daala from power, the Jedi Council is in no position to help…

Conviction will be out April 19; Red Harvest on January 25.

  1. The Death Troopers followup sounds kind of interesting, and rather far removed from the original plot that was hinted at. Death Troopers might have been one of the most pleasant surprises of last year for me. It wasn’t great, but it worked far better than I would have ever hoped a Star Wars horror novel to, and it ended up being pretty compulsive reading too.

    Also: Arrgh! Why did I read the Conviction thing? Why do I constantly try to sabotage my own pleasure reading? Oh well. At least I’ve got the better part of six months to try and forget.

  2. I read the first two lines then realised I hated myself. I knew what was going to happen and yet I read it anyway. Idiot!

  3. Must RESIST temptation…. MUST resist…… But dang does Red Harvest sound fun! I’m looking forward to how they will “connect” this to Death Troopers in the story!
