As the newly rebooted Expanded Universe of Star Wars books continues to grow, there have been some truly stellar releases this year. Many of them, such as Canto Bight, Leia: Princess of Alderaan, Empire’s End: Aftermath and Phasma, contain unspecified links to the upcoming movie Episode VIII — The Last Jedi. Others, like Battlefront II: Inferno Squad, flesh out the characters of the interactive side of the EU. Meanwhile, the short story anthology From a Certain Point of View celebrates the 40th anniversary of the original Episode IV — A New Hope.
