In a recent interview on the Suvudu blog, Aaron Allston revealed some information about the upcoming Wraith Squadron book, due in July 2012.
According to Allston,
Most of the action takes place in the approximate period as Fate of the Jedi, but there are critical chapters that revisit the Wraiths in earlier years, starting just after they made the jump to become an Intelligence unit. The current-era story reunites some of the longtime Wraiths, introduces new ones, and even has second-generation Wraiths.
Not every subplot that arose in Fate of the Jedi will have been resolved by the series’ end, and it’s up to the Wraiths to clean up a big mess left behind. That’s about all I’m willing to say at this time.
Okay. I was already excited about a new Wraith book, but now I’m really excited. Could the longtime Wraiths be Face Loran and Kell Tainer? Could the second generation Wraiths be characters like Myri Antilles? What’s the likelihood that new Wraiths are even more awesome Allston creations?
I’m pumped! July 2012 can’t come soon enough!
