Hi every one
On the occasion of their conference at Generations Star Wars & Science-Fiction in Cusset this weekend, Pocket Imaginary Editions announced the end of their schedule for the year 2022. The October and December releases had unprecedented impact.
I remind you that in parallel with these paper releases, many audiobooks are also planned at Lizzie this year, and I invite you to consult this news to know the list.
Find the schedule below. We’re talking about it this way on forums!
May 12, 2022: Thrawn The Ascendance tome 2 – Common bestby Timothy Zahn, on Pocket (Official Universe) (the book magazine)
Thrawn’s recent triumph still weighs on his shoulders. Although he led Chiss to victory and brought honor to the House of Mitth, the real threat to Ascendancy has not yet been eliminated. Their enemies send no threats or ultimatums, no big ships to the limits of chaos. Their weapons are hidden in smiles and generosity – free gifts, unconditional services.
Within Ascendancy, events a priori could without consequences announce the end of Chiss. As Thrawn and Chiss Expansion Fleet gather to uncover the enemy’s plot, they reveal a frightening truth. Instead of invading Chis’ capitals or plundering resources, these mysterious enemies strike at the very bottom of Ascendancy and exploit the conflicts between the nine ruling families and the forty large houses below. As rivalry and suspicion sprout between the Allies, each warrior must choose what matters more: the security of their family or the survival of the Ascendancy itself.
June 30, 2022: The fall of the starby Claudia Gray, at Pocket (Official Universe) (the book magazine)
In this gripping sequel to Storm Rumbles, the Jedi’s light confronts its darkest moments.
Again and again, the vicious raiders known as Nihil have tried to undo the Golden Age of the High Republic. Time and time again, the High Republic has emerged discouraged and tired but victorious thanks to its Jedi protectors – and there is no monument to their cause that is more impressive than the Stellar Beacon.
Like a jewel within the outer rim, the torch embodies the high republic at its peak: a hive of culture and knowledge, a shining torch against the darkness of the unknown and a welcoming hand stretched out to the lands, distant parts of the galaxy. While survivors and refugees flee the Nihil attacks, the torch and its crew stand ready to gather and heal.
The Jedi Knights and Padawans of the Jedi Order stationed there finally have a chance to recover, both from the pain of their injuries but also from the loss of their loved ones. But the storm they thought was over is still raging; they just end up in his eye. Marchion Ro, the real mastermind behind Nihl, prepares his most daring attack with the aim of extinguishing the light from the Jedi.
July 7, 2022: Roninby Emma Mieko Candon, at Outrefleuve (Alternative Universe) (the book magazine)
The Jedi are the most loyal servants of the empire.
Two decades ago, Jedi clans clashed and served violent lords. Sick of this endless cycle, a sect of Jedi rebelled, trying to control their own destiny and claim power in the service of no master. They called themselves Sith.
The Sith uprising failed due to conflict and betrayal, and the once rival lords unite to create an empire … but even an empire in peace is not spared violence.
Far at the edge of the outer edge wanders an ancient Sith, accompanied only by a loyal droid and the ghost of a less civilized time. He uses a lightsaber but does not claim membership of any Jedi clan and has not sworn allegiance to any lord. Not much is known about him, not even his name, as he never talks about his past or his regrets. His story is as protected as the red glow of destruction he wears tightly on his hip.
As the galaxy’s eternal cycle of violence continues and interrupts his self-imposed exile, and he is forced to confront an enigmatic bandit claiming the title of Sith, it becomes clear that no amount of wandering will allow him to overcome his past ghosts. life.
August 25, 2022: funeral horizonby Daniel José Older, on Pocket (Official Universe) (the book magazine)
After a series of significant defeats, the republic finally appears to have brought the vicious Nihil marauders on the run, and there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel. Until there are echoes of an attack, allegedly led by Nihil, on the industrial and cosmopolitan world of Corellia, in the middle of the galactic core.
Jedi masters Cohmac Vitus and Kantam Sy are sent to investigate, along with their Padawans Reath Silas and Ram Jomaram, who are each fighting their own battles after months of untiring danger. At Corellia, Reath and Ram meet a naughty young security specialist named Crash, one of whose friends fell victim to the Nihil attack, and they team up with her to infiltrate Corellia’s elite, while the Masters use more diplomatic means. But sneaking in with Crash is more dangerous than they had anticipated, even when Ram calls his friend Zeen to help them, with an extensive list involving a galactic pop star.
But what they discover on Corellia turns out to be only part of a larger plan, a plan that could lead the Jedi to their greatest defeat …

Shadow Wing is no longer a wounded prey fleeing New Republic hunters. With its leader, its strength has returned, and its Star Destroyers and TIE fighter squadrons lurk in the darkness between the stars, carrying the final decree of destruction proclaimed by the emperor along with another alien mission, a mission that Keize defends not for dying empire but for its loyal soldiers.
Alphabet Squadron’s ships are as dilapidated as their spirit, but they have always been able to trust each other. But now that they are facing Keize’s reincarnated power, they are not even sure. How do you capture a shadow? How do you remove it? And when you finally win, who pays the price?
