The EU has seen some kick butt female Jedi Protagonists: Barriss Offee in the MedStar Duology and Etain Tur-Mukan in the Republic Commando books, not to mention the original EU kick butt chick Mara Jade Skywalker.

Enter: Kera Holt in a galaxy full of Sith. Does Chuck Norris wear Kera Holt pajamas? I say yes. BLURB

A thousand years before Luke Skywalker, a generation before Darth Bane, in a galaxy far, far away...

The Republic is in crisis, torn by plague and conflict. The Sith roam unchecked, vying with one another to dominate the galaxy. But one lone Jedi, Kerra Holt, is determined to take down the Dark Lords -- one act of sabotage at a time. Her enemies are strange and many: Lord Daiman, who imagines himself the creator of the universe; Lord Odion, who intends to be its destroyer; the curious siblings Quillan and Dromika; the enigmatic Arkadia. So many warring Sith weaving a patchwork of brutality -- with only Kerra Holt to defend the innocents caught underfoot. Sensing a sinister pattern in the chaos, Kerra embarks on a journey that will take her to many worlds and into fierce battles against even fiercer enemies. With one against so many, her only chance of success lies with forging alliances among those who serve her enemies -- including a mysterious Sith spy and a clever mercenary general. But will they be her adversaries or her salvation?
Star Wars: Knight Errant, a novel featuring the main character from the forthcoming comic series of the same name, is by John Jackson Miller with cover art by John Van Fleet. It is due out from Del Rey Books in January.
