About Star Wars: Light of the Jedi (The High Republic)
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Long before the First Order, before the Empire, before even The Phantom Menace . . . Jedi lit the way for the galaxy in The High Republic
It is a golden age. Intrepid hyperspace scouts expand the reach of the Republic to the furthest stars, worlds flourish under the benevolent leadership of the Senate, and peace reigns, enforced by the wisdom and strength of the renowned order of Force users known as the Jedi. With the Jedi at the height of their power, the free citizens of the galaxy are confident in their ability to weather any storm But the even brightest light can cast a shadow, and some storms defy any preparation.
When a shocking catastrophe in hyperspace tears a ship to pieces, the flurry of shrapnel emerging from the disaster threatens an entire system. No sooner does the call for help go out than the Jedi race to the scene. The scope of the emergence, however, is enough to push even Jedi to their limit. As the sky breaks open and destruction rains down upon the peaceful alliance they helped to build, the Jedi must trust in the Force to see them through a day in which a single mistake could cost billions of lives.
Even as the Jedi battle valiantly against calamity, something truly deadly grows beyond the boundary of the Republic. The hyperspace disaster is far more sinister than the Jedi could ever suspect. A threat hides in the darkness, far from the light of the age, and harbors a secret that could strike fear into even a Jedi’s heart.
Although there is a very divided fan base towards today’s Star Wars, it take a real fan to embrace all the stories that are brought to life for our entertainment. It surely takes courage to branch out into an area which will surely take a lot of critique. With that said, I found this novel to be brilliant, refreshing and intuitive. I felt especially connected to all characters based off of their introductions along with the escalation of the story. I cannot wait to read the additions to this story.
I like flow of the story!
A good Star Wars book. An original idea
I thought this was a thoroughly enjoyable, fun, and entertaining adventure story. Checked off a number of boxes for Star Wars fans. I think it also does a very serviceable job of introducing this new storytelling initiative, set in the High Republic era, while not being too heavy on the exposition and keeping the plot and action moving along at a good clip. At the same time, I’m definitely looking forward to future stories that will be told in this era, and there are some very interesting ideas and characters that are introduced but not entirely fleshed out in this first chapter—which is part of the job of a launch title. I’d highly recommend this book if you’re looking for a fun read. My appetite for future stories is whetted, and I can’t wait to see where the stories lead!
Loved it. Couldn’t put it down.
I really wanted to like this, but this story just has zero heart. With all of the terrible things going on, you just aren’t drawn in to care. Throwaway characters repeatedly meet their demise within pages of introduction, and you get half-way through the book, with no idea who the main characters are. Reading this along side Justina Ireland’s A Test of Courage, which is infinitely better, even though it is aimed at a younger demographic.
Amazing. Now this is Star Wars. Fully immersed in this this time and place within a Galaxy Far Far Away during this event. Can’t wait for the next book.
Clearly not well written and either over and not a clear audience in mind when written. Reads painfully basic in prose.
It’s a very good starwars book
Charles Soule has kicked off the High Republic with an excellent novel full of new characters, worlds, and adventures. A beautifully written story that I look forward to seeing where it goes from here.
This is sad...can we get people who actually know and like Star Wars to make content?
This series is awesome so far
Identity politics once again ruin could have been a great story. Wouldn’t waste your time with this one.
