Hello Gemmies, happy Manga Monday! I have a new cover reveal to share with you today. This one is technically not a manga, it's a novel...BUT it continues the story of the Sith Ronin from The Star Wars Visions anime series. So I thought It would be fitting to post on Manga Monday. Star Wars: Ronin: A Visions Novel by Emma Mieko Candon is an original story inspired by the world of The Duel from Star Wars Visions. If you have not watched Visions...please, please, please go watch it. I thought it was phenomenal and The Duel was my favorite episode in the anthology. I love this cover and I can't tell you how excited I am to learn more about this mysterious former Sith!!!!
The Jedi are the most loyal servants of the Empire.
Two decades ago, Jedi clans clashed in service to feuding lords. Sickened by this endless cycle, a sect of Jedi rebelled, seeking to control their own destiny and claim power in service of no master. They called themselves Sith.
The Sith rebellion failed, succumbing to infighting and betrayal, and the once rival lords unified to create an Empire . . . but even an Empire at peace is not free from violence.
Far on the edge of the Outer Rim, one former Sith wanders, accompanied only by a faithful droid and the ghost of a less civilized age. He carries a lightsaber, but claims lineage to no Jedi clan, and pledges allegiance to no lord. Little is known about him, including his name, for he never speaks of his past, nor his regrets. His history is as guarded as the red blade of destruction he carries sheathed at his side.
As the galaxy's perpetual cycle of violence continues to interrupt his self-imposed exile, and he is forced to duel an enigmatic bandit claiming the title of Sith, it becomes clear that no amount of wandering will ever let him outpace the specters of his former life.
Published by Del Rey Books, Star Wars: Ronin: A Visions Novel, will release October 12, 2021 and is available for pre-order from all major booksellers. Are you looking forward to reading this book? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
