Lando’S Luck

Justina Ireland. Some of the most popular new Canon books are geared towards middle grade readers and young adults. Lando’s luck captures the character’s voice well, and you will find yourself laughing at the dialog between L3-337 (the charming rogue) and his droid companion L3-337. After being criminally underused in Solo: A Star Wars Story , it’s nice to see L3 get a larger part here, as well as a more tonally even relationship with her co-pilot. She and Lando are tasked with helping a young princess return a captured treasure to her planet, a perfectly pulpy plot for Star Wars and especially this duo of adventurers. Lando’s Luck

Ranking the Top Ten Star Wars Books Of All Time


Star Wars novels have expanded the universe in a number of ways beyond TV and films.

For years the universe continued to exist in form of comics and novels, but Disney’s acquisition at Lucasfilm saw that it was gone. The expanded universe was called Legends and replaced with new canon stories.


Whether it’s part of Legends or Canon though, there are some fantastic narratives from the galaxy far far away that audiences can explore in these Star Wars books. The best authors in the world have created emotionally engaging and exciting stories with this critically acclaimed franchise that revisit familiar characters while also introducing new ones.


10 Rebel Rising, Canon) Rogue One was Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars film. This movie is part of the Disney era. Although audiences were divided by the film’s tone of military violence, Rebel Rising (prequel novel) Rogue One managed to bring together many themes that add to the cinematic experience.


Beth Revis is a historian who has taken an in-depth look at Jyn Erso’s past, from her childhood and her relationship with her family to her time growing up with extremist Saw Gerrera. The movie ends exactly where it began with Erso, and further fleshes out her character and her relationship to the terrorist.


9 Darth Plagueis: Legends Palpatine’s story on Darth PlagueisThe Wise was certainly intriguing, however audiences were never given much insight into the past Sith Lord. James Luceno’s story begins with Sidious, the apprentice who kills the dark force wielder.

How We Review

Best Star Wars Novel


Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Stove r Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith cover There are two eras of life when it comes to being a reader of Star Wars books: Before Reading Revenge of the Sith and After Reading Revenge of the Sith.


Matthew Stover’s novelization of Prequel Trilogy’s final film is worthy of our highest ranking Star Wars book. There are many reasons why Matthew Stover’s innovative novelization takes us to the top of Star Wars literature. The main reason? This is the most well-written Star Wars novel ever.


Stover’s writing style is unlike anything else, even his Star Wars books. His descriptions of every character are epic to the level of Greek mythology, and when you’re describing possibly the most pivotal moments in the history of Star Wars, that level of reverence could not be more appropriate.


This book also has the unenviable task of making almost all film novels irrelevant. Stover does not alter the major plot points in Revenge of the Sith. However, he makes them more understandable by changing the stilted dialogue or adding mental gymnastics from the characters. And he constantly references the gravity of the stakes for the galaxy.


This book is a masterclass, in every possible way. This book will forever change your perception and appreciation of Anakin’s fall, regardless of how you feel about Revenge of the Sith.


Youtini is thrilled to award Revenge of the Sith (by Matthew Stover) the Best Star Wars Novel.

Best Star Wars Canon Novel


Claudia Gray Lost Stars Cover. When the time came to restore the Star Wars Canon timeline in 2015, it was a difficult road for the Star Wars publishing industry. Del Rey, Lucasfilm and the Star Wars Publishing World needed to create excitement for Episode VII. They also had to let the fans know they were in good hands moving forward from the Legends timeline.


They decided to publish Star Wars’ best book.


And that’s how we got Lost Stars.


Lost Stars changed everything about Star Wars Books by inserting new characters into known locations. It told an original story and crossed the line between uniqueness and familiarity.


You think it sounds simple?


Lost Stars is more than just an excellent book. Ciena Reynolds and Thane KYrell are the two most well-rounded characters in Star Wars. They allow you to view important events through completely new eyes. These characters start out as young children who want to fly with Imperial pilots among the stars. As they grow older, the mature characters have to learn to live with the shifting morality of a galactic on the verge of destruction.


Claudia Gray. Claudia Gray is a Star Wars author who was invited by Lost Stars to join the most prestigious Star Wars writers’ group. Her ability to craft action, romance, spectacle, and intimacy seamlessly together is unparalleled in the Star Wars writing bullpen. The characters she creates are as real and believable as the readers. They allow for the audience to feel the content in a way that is unlike anything I have seen.

Best Star Wars Young Adult Novel


Most Wanted: Rae Carson Most Wanted. Around the Youtini headquarters, there is a consensus that the Star Wars Canon Young Adult novels are among the finest stories ever written. The label YA can sometimes be confusing for some, but, as we demonstrated with Lost Stars being the Best Canon Novel, it is a love we have for books that feature teenage protagonists.


Most Wanted, released shortly after Solo: A Star Wars Story was opened theatrically, tells Han Solo’s story as he explores Corellia’s underworld criminals. The Star Wars Universe’s Master Pacer Rae Carson is cemented this book as the best book I ever read.


Carson’s popularity is tied to the secret Qi’ra novel, Most Wanted. Most fans in the community left their exhilarating first viewing of Solo wanting to know more about Emilia Clarke’s phenomenal new character, and Most Wanted delivers in spades.


Qi’ra’s and Han’s adventures allow us to see not only the growth of their individual lives, but also their evolving relationship. What happens when two White Worm Scrumrats become professional enemies and backroom makeout friends? Most Wanted will reveal the answer.

Claudia Gray Leia. Leia. Princess Alderaan. Claudia Gray Leia. Princess Alderaan.


Leia Princess of Alderaan, although it may not be as well-known as the Claudia Gray novels, is a significant Star Wars novel that has radically changed the landscape of the universe.
