The Old Galatic Republic Era, began over 25,000 years before the events of Star Wars : A New Hope. Around 4,000 years before A New Hope began the first of many wars that continued to affect the events throughout Star Wars. First came Jedi Revan, who won great respect as a leader during the Mandalorian Wars. His time during the war caused him to fall to the Dark side of the force, where he became Darth Revan and eventually caused the forming of what would become The Sith Empire. 300 years later The Sith Empire returned, starting the Great Galatic War. This was a dark time for the Republic and continued until Darth Bane created the Rule of Two.
The Rise of the Empire are the books that take place during the 1,000 80 years before Star Wars : A New Hope. Which means this starts before the events of The Phantom Menace. So not only can we see what happens with Anakin as he falls in love and his descent into the dark side, but what Darth Maul was like before Episode I and what Han Solo was up to before his fateful meeting with Luke Skywalker.
When Luke Skywalker and his companions are lured to Mindor and into battle with the Black Stormtroopers, they are unaware that the confrontation is part of a plot by Lord Shadowspawn to destroy the heroes of the New Republic and to restore the Empire with himself as ruler.

Three decades have passed since Wraith Squadron carried out its last mission.

Now their singular skills are back in vital demand for a tailor-made Wraith Squadron mission. A powerful general in the Galactic Alliance Army, once renowned for his valor, is suspected of participating in the infamous Lecersen Conspiracy, which nearly toppled the Alliance back into the merciless hands of the Empire. With orders to expose and apprehend the traitors and "license to do so by any and all means" the Wraiths will become thieves, pirates, impostors, forgers--and targets, as they put their guts, their guns, and their riskiest game plan to the test against the most lethal of adversaries.
