A massive thanks to Lakota Schultz from the Star Wars Book Nerds Facebook Group for bringing this to my attention.
Oh someone’s done a boo-boo.
The Australian ‘Penguin Random House’ website has put up some information, seemingly about the upcoming novel ‘Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire’ by Delilah S. Dawson, with the cover as we know it but the description is very, very different.
The official description, as previously released is (from the U.S site).
Walk the ancient streets, meet the colorful characters, and uncover the secret history of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the upcoming expansion to the Disney Parks experience!
After devastating losses at the hands of the First Order, General Leia Organa has dispatched her agents across the galaxy in search of allies, sanctuary, and firepower—and her top spy, Vi Moradi, may have just found all three, on a secluded world at the galaxy’s edge.
A planet of lush forests, precarious mountains, and towering, petrified trees, Batuu is on the furthest possible frontier of the galactic map, the last settled world before the mysterious expanse of Wild Space. The rogues, smugglers, and adventurers who eke out a living on the largest settlement on the planet, Black Spire Outpost, are here to avoid prying eyes and unnecessary complications. Vi, a Resistance spy on the run from the First Order, is hardly a welcome guest. And when a shuttle full of stormtroopers lands in her wake, determined to root her out, she has no idea where to find help.
To survive, Vi will have to seek out the good-hearted heroes hiding in a world that redefines scum and villainy. With the help of a traitorous trooper and her acerbic droid, she begins to gather a colorful band of outcasts and misfits, and embarks on a mission to spark the fire of resistance on Batuu—before the First Order snuffs it out entirely.
Now, according the the Australian site, this is the information about the book.
A Kylo Ren novel?
I’m 100% confident in saying that this is not the plot of ‘Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire’ but the fact that it has been posted to an official site screams of a future release.
So we are getting a book about Kylo Ren!!! I speculate that it will be officially announced as San Diego Comic-Con for an October release on Triple-Force Friday, at the earliest. Maybe, to avoid too many spoilers for ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ it will get a release in December but I think this will be somewhat similar to Delilah S. Dawson’s ‘Phasma’ where we get some backstory to Kylo Ren.
I’m not going to speculate on anything more than that in terms of plot and story but I cannot wait.
