The only high republic stuff I’ve read is the comic series. It’s pretty good so far, I’m interested to see where it goes, and how it will tie in with the novels.

I forgot to say I finished Light of the Jedi the other day. A great springboard into this exciting new era.

SPOILERS:

Marchion Ro is already one of the most interesting Star Wars villains for me. I also really took a liking to Loden Greatstorm, so his capture is a massive cliffhanger! I love the master-apprentice relationship between Loden and Bell and Bell being on the front cover of the sequel book The Rising Storm makes me very excited for what’s to come, with Bell hopefully trying his hardest to rescue Loden and being challenged along the way. The final battle in the novel was brilliant - a Republic victory, yet one which leaves them horrified and confused, and apparently not the victory that it seemed at first, either.

I’ve been thinking recently that we need more Star Wars stories that are impeccably planned out, like Rebels. The High Republic project is that pre-planned story. I hear they’ve even got 3 phases planned for it, including The Acolyte in ‘phase 2’, and all the novel and comic writers have worked very closely and seem to be great friends. This is gonna be great.

Just read High Republic #1. Absolutely floored by it. It’s fantastic. Everything is colourful, and bright, and creative and refreshing and new, and I love Keeve Trennis. She’s so very likeable. The story is compelling, the story of Sskeer being set up is compelling, and there are so many great moments like Keeve’s knighthood and the final ‘For Light and Life’ scene.

This era is amazing! Fantastic work by Cavan Scott and Ario Anindito, as well as the other artists working on the series.

“The new mini-series from Daniel José Older, Star Wars: The High Republic: Trail Of Shadows, will introduce the mystery fiction genre into the new era of Star Wars storytelling as the Jedi call upon one of their own, Emerick Caphtor, to investigate a strange mystery with ties to the Jedi Order. At the same time, Chancellor Lina Soh calls upon Sian Holt, a high-end, in-demand private detective to look into the same mystery. But will either solve this riddle before anyone else dies?”

All this Wave Two stuff is looking very interesting. Although I’m on this thread far too much, I admit I’m behind on High Republic stories. I’ve been reading through the main High Republic comics by Cavan Scott but haven’t started on the Adventures ones yet, so I don’t know for myself how much I like Daniel José Older’s writing. However, from my experience with him on social media, he’s an absolutely lovely person who interacts with many HR fans in a very friendly way. And - like everything from this era so far - his work seems to have gone down very well. I also love when Star Wars branches off into different genres, be it b-movie space horror or Star Trek adventure in the Clone Wars episodes Brain Invaders and Overlords, so a detective story is very welcome (even though we have had it before, of course).

Honestly, off the point about Daniel José Older being really nice, that could be said about all the High Republic authors. For me, the most heartwarming thing about this whole project is that all the writers - Charles Soule, Cavan Scott, Claudia Gray, Justina Ireland and DJO - collaborate closely and seem to be great friends. They’re enjoying it so much and it shows. I’m just glad I get to help make the High Republic project a success for them.

The High Republic: The Rising Storm – Book Review by Fabio Fiori at https://tatooinetimes.com/

https://tatooinetimes.com/star-wars-reviews/the-high-republic-the-rising-storm-book-review/

“The Rising Storm (the author’s very first Del Rey Star Wars novel) is probably Scott’s greatest achievement … through and through an absolute masterpiece … This next installment of The High Republic is an essential must-read and one that will without a doubt take its place among the best Star Wars stories of all time.”

Also, interestingly, it seems to be very dark - “Scott’s utterly graphic description of each horrific act is at a level never seen in Star Wars publishing”

The Rising Storm review: An emotional page-turner from beginning to end by Tom Farr at https://dorksideoftheforce.com/

“The Rising Storm is the best kind of Star Wars book. Emotional. Rising stakes from beginning to end. Foreshadowing the Skywalker saga. Deepening the Jedi mythology. A classic page-turner.”
