No worries, I read it already. ;)

It was good. I enjoyed it. A lot of politics, though, forewarning.

Also a nice confirmation in which year it takes place in; the novel is sort of vague about how much time had passed since ROTJ.

    • Bloodline

      Bloodline by Claudia Gray is a canon novel set six years before Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens and focuses on Leia and her place within the New Republic. The book features the birth of the Resistance seen in The Force Awakens as they come together to fight growing threat of the First order.
      It was originally titled New Republic: Bloodline, suggesting that it may have been conceived as part of a series.
       
      Publisher's summary
      Witness the birth of the Resistance.
      When the Rebellion defeated the Empire in the skies above Endor, Leia Organa believed it was the beginning to a lasting peace. But after decades of vicious infighting and partisan gridlock in the New Republic Senate, that hope seems like a distant memory.
      Now a respected senator, Leia must grapple with the dangers that threaten to cripple that fledging democracy—from both within and without. Underworld kingpins, treacherous politicians, and Imperial loyalists are sowing chaos in the galaxy. Desperate to take action, senators are calling for the election of a First Senator. It is their hope that this influential post will bring strong leadership to a divided galaxy.
      As the daughter of Darth Vader, Leia faces with distrust the prospect of any one person holding such a powerful position—even when supporters suggest Leia herself for the job. But a new enemy may make this path Leia's only option. For at the edges of the galaxy, a mysterious threat is growing....
    • Rogue One tie-ins announced at C2E2

      At C2E2 in Chicago this week, Del Rey and Marvel have revealed an accompanying prequel novel and 3-issue comic series to tie-in with upcoming Star Wars spin-off movie Rogue One.
      Del Rey's Elizabeth Schaefer announced the prequel novel for Rogue One will be called Catalyst and will release in the fall of this year, but sadly this is all we know so far as an unfinished cover was shown and the author's name remains a mystery.
      Schaefer also revealed a bit of information about July's upcoming second instalment of the Aftermath trilogy, Aftermath: Life Debt - "Before Han can settle down with Leia, he has one last debt to pay. This is a story of our favorite BFFs on Chewie's home planet." She also mentioned that Claudia Gray's novel Bloodline, set before The Force Awakens, focuses on Leia and her role in the New Republic and the rise of the Resistance.
      Marvel also announced a 3-issue comic series plus a one-shot in October that will provide further backstory for Rogue One.
    • Billie Lourd confirms she isn't young Leia

      Carrie Fisher's daughter has killed the The Force Awakens rumor involving a flashback scene of Leia.
      Billy Lourd has revealed during an interview with ET Online that her appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is not as a young Princess Leia in a flashback scene as has been previously rumored, a news snippet that has since been repeated by Carrie Fisher herself.
      During the interview, which was to promote new television show Scream Queens, Lourd stated that although the rumors were false she is still involved in the movie. This may mean that her appearance in The Force Awakens is a much more minor role than thought, as she declined to give further details on her character.

    • Princess Leia comic launches March

      Star Wars: Princess Leia, launching this month, is a five-issue Marvel comic series following the leading lady of the Star Wars trilogy.The new comic series is set immediately after A New Hope and sees Leia finally get the chance to deal with the aftermath of the destruction of Alderaan and being the last Organa.

      The comic, written by Mark Waid and pencilled by Terry Dodson, sees Leia recruit a female X-wing pilot names Evaan and head out in search citizens of Alderaan who managed to avoid the devastating attack by the Death Star.

      Waid has stated that even if he hadn't been offered the job of writing this comic it would have been his first choice, as he loved how the character of Leia was set up as in a classic damsel in distress scenario, only to take charge of the situation. "That was so unique at the time, and sadly, it's still a little unique", he said during an interview at San Diego ComicCon last year.

      You can find out more and see a preview of the comic over at USA Today.
