Imagine getting the news that you would be joining illustrious authors Donald Glut, James Kahn, Terry Brooks, R.A. Salvatore, Matthew Stover, Alan Dean Foster, and Jason Fry in adapting one of the films in the Skywalker saga into a novel. Rae Carson is the chosen one who wrote the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker novelization, which is available now and provides additional nuance and detail to the final chapter in the Skywalker saga. The much-anticipated release offers more of these characters we love and gives more background on Leia’s Jedi training, what makes Ben Solo tick, and the return of Emperor Palpatine.
