From April 29 to May 13, Del Rey will be offering Betrayal, the first book of the Legacy of the Force series as a free download. It will be available as a PDF, in Kindle and Sony reader format, and even -- get this! -- as an audio book! "Betrayal" came out a couple of years ago, and
the conclusion will be coming out on May 13 (in hardback), so they are doing this to publicize that last book. (And the paperback reissue of a very crucial book in the series, with the death of a major character.)

I've already read Betrayal. It's an interesting start to a series with lots of potential -- it's about how Han and Leia's son Jacen becomes a Sith Lord! :eek: To be honest, I preferred Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, about an eeevil Sith lord from much earlier in Star Wars history. But it was still cool to visit Luke, Leia, Han, Wedge, and the droids again -- and even Boba Fett. I wonder how long it will take to download an audiobook on dialup? ;) (Thank God for download managers...)
