Coming Next Year: The Dark Nest Trilogy

The heroes of the Star Wars galaxy have survived the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, but they will soon face their next great challenge when The Dark Nest trilogy of paperback novels begins next year.
The disappearance of a small team of Jedi Knights -- including Jaina and Jacen Solo -- in the Unknown Regions has sparked controversy. The reclusive Chiss has lodged a formal complaint, angrily accusing the missing Jedi of meddling in a border dispute between the Chiss and an unidentified aggressor.

Jedi Master Luke Skywalker ventures into the Unknown Regions to contain the damage, while Han and Leia follow, concerned for their children. What they find is a colony of mysterious aliens edging towards Chiss space, led by a Force adept who is recruiting old and powerful friends to his cause. He is compelling them to join the colony and meld their Force-abilities with his, even if it leads to all-out war.

Thus begins the Dark Nest trilogy by Troy Denning. The first book, The Joiner King, is due out on August 2005 from Del Rey Books. The subsequent books, Dark Nest II: The Unseen Queen and Dark Nest III: The Swarm War, will be published in October and December, 2005, respectively.

As a special bonus, The Joiner King will come with the short story Ylesia, by Walter Jon Williams. This tale from The New Jedi Order was previously only available in e-book format.

What the hell good does it do to let that out so early? Are they trying to drive me insane? Honestly, that doesn't even qualify as a teaser.

On a side note, I wanna know how they managed to pull her out of Galactic Republic stuff and sent her out to the UkR. That seems totally out of character. Well, at least they got the Chiss in character. Wait, does this mean Jacen will actually do something in the book? We can only hope. And, yippee, Captain Cardboard returns. Huzzah. Wonder if he's managed to attain a personality yet.
