Del Rey Spectra 50 Page Fridays: Paul S. Kemp

Every Friday, we here @ Del Rey Spectra will place a 50 page excerpt of a selected title on Suvudu. Whether it be science fiction, epic fantasy, alternate history, horror, urban fantasy, paranormal, the possibilities are endless.

This week’s excerpt comes from STAR WARS: RIPTIDE, and after 2 teaser excerpts from this book earlier this month, brace yourself for 50 pages of unforgettable content. Here’s what SW editor Shelly Shapiro has to say:

“When Paul Kemp turned in his manuscript for CROSSCURRENT–his first Star Wars novel–Sue Rostoni (until recently, managing editor at Lucas Licensing) and I loved the book so much that we signed him up for a sequel, even before we had any sales figures to back up our enthusiasm. We sure were relieved–and vindicated–when CROSSCURRENT hit the New York Times bestseller list. At that point, we were so happy with Paul and his writing for Star Wars that we hired him to write DECEIVED, our second novel tying in to the upcoming Star Wars mmorpg, THE OLD REPUBLIC. That was a blast of an adventure, too, as well as a New York Times hardcover bestseller. I loved DECEIVED, but I was especially happy when Paul finally had the time to return to the tale of Jedi Knight Jaden Korr, introduced in CROSSCURRENT and now starring in RIPTIDE, an all-new tale of the good, the bad, and the ugly as could only happen when the Jedi, the Sith, and the gone-but-not-forgotten Empire are involved! Jaden is a great character, as are his companions, and RIPTIDE also boasts some of the creepiest bad guys seen in Star Wars for a while.

This is one RIPTIDE you don’t need to steer clear of: Step right into it and let it sweep you away! Happy reading!”
