    I won't say anything about how Empire's End ends but it does leave some loose ends. Since there were rumors about a Journey to The Last Jedi series just like the one that was for TFA, I think it's highly possible that we might get a tie-in/prelude to TLJ about the foundation of the First Order and how Snoke took over.

    Some may say ''But they would never reveal Snoke's backstory in a novel 90% of the audience won't read'', true but they won't have to reveal his backstory in the book. Just the story about how he took control over the First Order and how they found him.

    They'll give us some background about Snoke's rise to power in the FO (I would assume) in TLJ and then we will get a book later that fills in all of the minor details.

    I wasn't around to see it, [face_laugh]

    It's the book that comes up the least in discussions on other websites.

    So:

    - Aftermath: Empire's End
    - Thrawn
    - Rebel Rising
    - Inferno Squadron

    Am I missing anything?

    Of the adult novels, you didn't. I usually just read the regular/adult novels and not the junior novels, I might consider to read servants of the empire, I hear a lot of people enjoyed Jason Fry's novels.

    I might grab Guardians of the Whills. I'm really interested in learning more about them.

    Honestly, most of the junior novels have been solid. Not just Servants of the Empire, but the red-and-black Journey to the Force Awakens books and Ezra's Gamble are also worth a look. The only books I would say deserve a pass are the Adventures in Wild Space books. They're very clearly for younger readers and, other than a couple of passing references to characters and planets in Rebels, don't add much to the canon as a whole.

    I'm guessing three more adult books, including the TLJ novelization.

    So two more that could be anything...But I'd guess something with ties to TLJ.

    So as far as adult this year we got Empire's End, Thrawn, Inferno Squadron, and maybe 1 or 2 more? The R1 novelizations interest me but I do want to see more than that and more than in the R1 timeframe.

    I wonder if that tie in will be about the FO setting up the FO planets we will see in TLJ. That or something setting up the state of the Republic or Luke's journeys

    I think we will probably get the first book of a new canon Jedi Academy trilogy, or maybe a Force odyssey book with luke and written by Claudia Gray although the force odyssey Book standalone/series would work well with Qui-Gon Jinn as well.

    I don't want to invest myself in a book full of characters whom I know perfectly well will all be slaughtered. :-(

    They could be in hiding until Luke comes back. I expect it myself.

    You didn't read any books about the prequel Jedi, then?

    In the EU, there were more than two survivors, right? ;) Which is to be expected, since the old Order was made of what... 10,000 Jedi? I don't think Luke had that many students.

    Well it's been what....34 years between ROTJ and TFA so hopefully Luke's trained enough who could train more and so on. Won't hold my breath though. I'd like to see more on Qui-Gonn though. He was the only good thing about TPM.

    Hopefully we get something in fall as well. Didn't LD come out in summer last year and then we got Ahsoka (junior) & Catalyst in fall/winter?

    Oh god yes. I doubt he'll get something dedicated to him alone but if we ever get that Dooku novel then he has to be in it.

    Have you guys read Cloak of Deception? Although he is one of 3 main characters, it feels a lot like a Qui-Gon story.
