    OK I am interested in reading all of the Del Rey SW Timeline books....am reading "Phasma" (Christmas Gift) now.....for those who have read these, what are your recommendations?

    Is Freed's novelization of "Rogue One" considered part of this? (I have read that too and it is very good)

    My personal three favorites are Dark Disciple, Thrawn, and Bloodline. I'd definetly recomend all three of these.

    I recommend Dark Disciple and Battlefront: Twilight Company. Both completely different stories, but both well written.

    The Aftermath trilogy is a little tricky, Life Debt and Empire's End are very good, but the first one isn't that strong. But you may want to read that one first to get to know the characters better.

    Avoid Heir to the jedi, it's not good in my opinion

    (Off topic) fun fact: Heir to the Jedi was one of the first Star Wars books I read and the first that I owned. I liked it a lot the first time I read it (probably because of those reasons), but didn't like it that much the second time I read it, for many of the same reasons as everybody else.

    @Lock_S_Foils I see that you read the Rogue One novelization and I would definetly recomend the novelization for The Force Awakens. It fills in some gaps here and there (what happened to Poe after his crash landing), but also has some extra scenes that were neat. The final act/climax was definetly rushed, which is a problem that I also had with the Revenge of the Sith novelization. (Not sure if that's counted as canon or not, but it is from Del Rey and I'd recomend that too.)

    Lords of the Sith and Bloodlines are the only two I have actually enjoyed. The rest do not even seem like real literature. Just teases for the next movies. You can almost see the creative handcuffs on the author on the pages.
