Cavan Scott is one of many storytellers continuing to shape and re-shape the Star Wars mythology for a new generation of fans. As one of the primary architects of The High Republic era of Star Wars storytelling, Scott is responsible for the main Marvel Comics The High Republic title, and fans will soon be able to read his upcoming The High Republic novel The Rising Storm.

With Dooku: Jedi Lost, Scott introduced a new form of storytelling into the Star Wars franchise. Jedi Lost was an original audio drama with an impressive cast of voice actors telling the story of Dooku’s early childhood through adulthood and eventual fall to the dark side. Scott was able to recontextualize the character in a way that was fresh and exciting. It also demonstrated the power of audio dramas for future Star Wars stories, paving the way for Sarah Kuhn’s Doctor Aphra original audio drama.

And now, Cavan Scott is returning to the audio drama form with Tempest Runner, a story taking place in The High Republic era. According to the official Star Wars Books Twitter account, Tempest Runner will be a story about Lourna Dee, a villainous character we first met in Charles Soule’s Light of the Jedi. Scott’s ability to explore the villain’s mind, as demonstrated in Jedi Lost, is sure to be on full display in Tempest Runner.

The audio drama is set to release this fall, and preorders will be available soon from your favorite audiobook seller.
