The book I'd recommend most for good stories focusing on leia or other female leads would be one that just came out last week, and I just finished. It is in the new canon, and is called 'Bloodline'. Leia is front and center in it, and the book is basically bridging the gap between return of the jedi, and the force awakens. It takes place about 6 years before TFA (the force awakens), and deals with Leia trying to get things done in the senate despite political stagnation (nobody agrees on anything, and so nothing gets done), while also trying to stop a rising cartel from gaining more power, and eventually her creating the resistance seen in TFA. It's by Claudia Gray; she is quickly becoming one of my favored authors, across both old and new star wars eu.

She has another book called 'Lost Stars' that is pretty good too, but may not be what you're looking for. It is, at it's core, a romance between a guy and a girl, starting before a new hope, and taking them through all the events of the original trilogy of movies. It focuses on both of them, and switches between their perspectives every so often, so it focuses on a female lead, but also on the male lead pretty evenly, so I'm not sure how well that one fits your criteria. But it is pretty good! :)

Those are both in the new canon. If you're looking for stuff from the old canon, I'm not sure of anything that is actually focused on Leia or another female lead, instead of being focused on Luke or Han and having a prominent secondary female character. I know theres at least a few, but their names aren't coming to me at the moment. I keep thinking of a trilogy called 'Sword of the Jedi' that was going to center around Han Solo's daughter Jaina, but that trilogy got cancelled in the shakeup of disney buying lucasfilm...
Hmm, lets see, I know theres something haha, I'm positive... I might edit this or reply to it when I remember. Hopefully this has helped a little though!

Oh, and welcome to reddit, as well as the star wars EU! :D
I hope you'll enjoy your stay, haha!

I though the description of Thrawn was a bit strange, like there was something off. Might be the hints you are talking about.

Outbound Flight might be the next SWEUBC book, and i have it on my reading list, will check it out soon. Been meaning to pick up NJO since forever, just haven't gotten around to it yet!
Cool. I will add vision of the future to my reading list :)

Maybe my word phrasing was bad. I didn't feel immersed in the story and the events, for me, just seemed like 'another day in the galaxy'.

I know this is one of the earliest EU books and the explanation/development of the universe might be what is making it feel like it drags out. I have read most of the The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia. Yes, obi-wan's goodbye was a good read and i also enjoyed luke's trip to dagobah.

It seems like it is just me that doesn't get the book. Going to finish it and probably the other two in the series anyway :)

Thanks a lot for you input!

Haha, Kyle Katarn was one of my first introductions into the Star Wars EU too.

I noticed your interest in the Legacy comics (which are awesome and don't require much knoweldge of the EU), if you're more into comics than the novels, the Thrawn Trilogy was adapted into a pretty nice comic series. It's a cool introduction to the post Return of the Jedi era.

u/anakinwasasaint · 1 pointr/StarWarsEU

No I've read "the rise of darth Vader" it's good as well.

I'm talking about the YA book "the Rise and Fall of Darth Vader" Easy to mix up lol

I'd go with the Essential Guide to Warfare. The New Essential Chronology is nice if you don't want to get into the Legacy era, but have an interest in the Yuuzhon Vong.

u/MillenniumFalc0n · 1 pointr/StarWarsEU

I'd definitely recommend starting with the Thrawn trilogy, here's a link to the first book:

Heir to the Empire is under $5 new right now on Amazon.

I've been buying used from there and from Powells (and a local shop) for a while, though, and the quality is almost always totally fine. Most of the time you spend about $4, shipping included.

1) Lords of the Sith

Dark Side Power on display by Vader and Sidious.

2) Lost Stars

Getting a whole new perspective (a couple actually) on the events of the Original Trilogy (and beyond) though the eyes of two childhood friends (a boy and a girl) who dream of becoming Imperial pilots together and eventually find themselves on opposite sides of the Galactic Civil War. I really enjoyed the characters in this book, and really hope to see more of their story in the future.

Note: This is listed as a "young adult" novel, but I really don't understand why, other than possibly it's length. There was actually more 'adult' type content (i.e. sex related) in this book than most of the Star Wars novels as there is sort of a coming-of-age element to the story (maybe that's why it got the YA tag, idk).

3) A New Dawn

Just a fun story of a former padawan in hiding after surviving order 66, and an anti-Imperial pilot looking to stir up trouble. Lots of action and an interesting villain. This story introduces two of the characters from the Rebels tv series, and takes place about 6 years before the series iirc.

4) Tarkin

An in depth character novel on one of the real villains of the original Star Wars film, and it did not disappoint. It might be considered informational than entertaining as it wasn't very action-packed.

Those are my top-4, all for totally different reasons because they are all totally different kinds of stories and I think that each did what it was trying to do very well. I think it's a very exciting time to be a Star Wars fan!

u/PsychoGobstopper · 6 pointsr/StarWarsEU

Yes, it was all collected and published later.

u/bearded_jedi · 1 pointr/StarWarsEU

Found it on amazon, this is the one I got years and years ago.

u/Sapitoelgato · 4 pointsr/StarWarsEU

Pick up this book as a reference guide to Legends:

The Essential Reader's Companion (Star Wars) (Star Wars: Essential Guides)

The best place to start is the Thrawn Trilogy. I started with Darth Plagueis.

u/RC_5213 · 3 pointsr/StarWarsEU

The Bane trilogy is excellent.

If you get Dark Lord, make sure you get Labyrinth of Evil and the Revenge of the Sith Novelization. They tie in with Dark Lord and the trio is phenomenal together. And trust me, the RoTS novelization is light years ahead of the movie. I posted the prologue
in r/Frission a while back.

Just get this:

Don't know if it is any good or not...Hasbro HASE2445EU4 Star Wars Han Solo Card Game, Multi-Colour

u/RoguePilot09 · 3 pointsr/StarWarsEU

It was a novel tie in for the Star Wars Galaxies MMORPG. It was horrible.
Edit: The Ruins of Dantooine (Star Wars: Galaxies)
