To celebrate Star Wars Day, Del Rey's Star Wars Books Facebook page has posted the first micro-excerpt from Star Wars: A New Dawn by John Jackson Miller, the first in Lucasfilm's new unified canon. Check it out below.
"It was time to move. Hera picked out the identifying transponder signal of a ship in the convoy. One button-push later, her ship was that vessel, as far as anyone trying to watch traffic was concerned. With practiced ease, she weaved her freighter into the chaotic flood of cargo ships heading to the moon. None of these guys can fly worth a flip, she thought. It was just as well it wasn’t a recruiting trip. She probably wouldn’t have found anyone worth her time."Star Wars: A New Dawn will be released on September 2, 2014.
