Have you been enjoying your reading adventure so far with Star Wars’ The High Republic series? Are you looking to get a start on reading through this series and need a recommendation? Fret not — because a new Star Wars: The High Republic novel is here!
As of today, Tuesday, Feb. 2, The High Republic: Into the Dark is out now. This comes from acclaimed author Claudia Gray, who has penned several Star Wars stories. Her past work includes: Master and Apprentice; Leia, Princess of Alderaan; Star Wars: Bloodline; and Star Wars: Lost Stars. Needless to say, Star Wars knows a good writer when they see one. And her continuation as a Star Wars author on the High Republic series is a testament to how well her writing style works in the Star Wars universe.
The High Republic series spans a different number of genres/age ranges. The first entry in this series, Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule, falls on the full-on-novel-for-adults spectrum. Next, A Test of Courage by Justina Ireland is for young readers. And now, Gray’s Into the Dark falls right in the middle of those two as a young-adult novel. But, needless to say, this story is sure to be fit for all, young and old.
Here’s the description of the book:
"Padawan Reath Silas is being sent from the cosmopolitan galactic capital of Coruscant to the undeveloped frontier―and he couldn’t be less happy about it. He’d rather stay at the Jedi Temple, studying the archives. But when the ship he’s traveling on is knocked out of hyperspace in a galactic-wide disaster, Reath finds himself at the center of the action."
