This is a novel that looks like it’s going to be part of a series (whether it focuses on this kid and his development or on different Servants of the Empire, I don’t know), so yes, you can purchase this in the future. Furthermore, this is—as far as I understand—completely canon.
This is as canon as the movies, as canon as the TV show. Unless it has the “Legends” logo, it’s canon.
Sorry, I suppose I should have included the title!
It’s called Servants of the Empire: Edge of the Galaxy. It’s a junior novel, and yes, everything under the Star Wars Rebels umbrella is — as I understand — totally canon, like swan2swan said.
It’s also worth noting that Zare Leonis will also be appearing within the television series, as well! Here’s his pages from the Visual Guide — there’s episode spoilers in it, of course.
Don’t quote me on this, because I’m just guessing, but I’m assuming Servants of the Empire will be a series focusing on different Imperial characters just to flesh them out and give them some background. (Or maybe that’s just what I’m hoping for. :P)
"Zare Leonis seems destined to become a poster boy for the Empire. His sister Dhara has been accepted into the esteemed Imperial Academy on Lothal, and Zare is confident he’ll join her in a year’s time. But a year can bring plenty of unwelcome changes. Not only does he begin to uncover the Empire’s destructive plans for Lothal and the livelihood of its people, but his unease hits home when Dhara goes mysteriously missing. Zare is forced to question everything and rethink what it means to be a good servant of the Empire.
This first book in an original series gives readers an insider’s look into a different part of the world of Star Wars Rebels.”

I said I wouldn’t do these often, but I just wanted to toss up a quick note and apologize for how scattered this blog has been the past 1-2 weeks.
Things IRL are settling down again, though, so I promise I’ll be sure and get as much news up here as possible, not just videos. :P
Thanks for being patient!
