Shadow Games is a novel by Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff that was released on November 29, 2011. It is a "rags to riches" story of a holostar during the Rebellion's early days, taking place before the events in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, and also features Dash Rendar.

The novel was originally known by the working title Holostar.[2] On October 4, 2010, Del Rey announced that fans would get to choose the title of the novel. The three proposed titles were Star Wars: Shadow Games, Star Wars: Pursuit and Star Wars: Shadow Play.[3] After a week, the title Star Wars: Shadow Games was chosen.[4]

Publisher's summaryEdit

Some games are played for life or death.

Javul Charn is the most famous pop star in the galaxy – and the runaway bride of a violent lieutenant in Black Sun, the crime syndicate commanded by Prince Xizor. Or so Javul says. Soon after Dash Rendar, broke and desperate, agrees to be Javul's bodyguard, he realizes that openness is not her strong suit – and that murder is stalking her tour. Between the discovery of dead bodies in a cargo hold and an attack by an unidentified warship, Dash and co-pilot Eaden Vrill desperately try to understand who is terrorizing Javul's tour and why. When Han Solo suddenly joins Javul's road show, the stakes are raised even higher. Now Dash, who has a history with Han and an even worse history with Prince Xizor, follows his instincts, his discoveries, and Javul herself – straight into a world that may be too dangerous to survive!
