Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

After the fall of the Empire, the Senate is split into the Populist and Centrist parties. Both profess the goal of restoring the Republic, though they are unable to set aside their opposing views. Tired of the pointless bickering within the Senate, Leia takes on one final mission before retiring. However, the mission proves to be bigger than she originally thought, inducing chaos and unveiling corruption.

Leave it to Claudia Gray to make politics exciting with action and drama! Bloodline is also an excellent gateway into the sequel trilogy, making this an essential read for fans interested in that era.


Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

WITNESS THE BIRTH OF THE RESISTANCE

When the Rebellion defeated the Empire in the skies above Endor, Leia Organa believed it was the beginning to a lasting peace. But after decades of vicious infighting and partisan gridlock in the New Republic Senate, that hope seems like a distant memory.

Now a respected senator, Leia must grapple with the dangers that threaten to cripple the fledgling democracy—from both within and without. Underworld kingpins, treacherous politicians, and Imperial loyalists are sowing chaos in the galaxy. Desperate to take action, senators are calling for the election of a First Senator. It is their hope that this influential post will bring strong leadership to a divided galaxy.

As the daughter of Darth Vader, Leia faces with distrust the prospect of any one person holding such a powerful position—even when supporters suggest Leia herself for the job. But a new enemy may make this path Leia’s only option. For at the edges of the galaxy, a mysterious threat is growing. . . .

- Charles Hankel

Claudia Gray's reign continues with Bloodline as she tackles one of the most important revelations in Leia Organa's life: her true parentage. This secret being made public shakes Leia to her core, and as she attempts to navigate the political consequences of this exposure, the whispers of the First Order are getting louder and louder. This novel reads with all the exhilaration of a classic espionage tale and still gives us quiet, intimate moments with some of our favorite characters of all time. A must read.

- Eric Eilersen

Bloodline takes place during a significant era in the Canon timeline which is when the New Republic is still being fully established years after Return of the Jedi. I’m not the biggest fan of politics, but while reading this I felt like my mom leaning into the TV during her favorite soap operas. Scandals, gossip, and backstabbing galore!
