I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the STAR WARS THE HIGH REPUBLIC: MIDNIGHT HORIZON by Daniel José Older Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!
Centuries before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, in the era of the glorious High Republic, the Jedi are the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy!
After a series of staggering losses, the Republic seems to finally have the villainous Nihil marauders on the run, and it looks like there’s light at the end of the tunnel. Until word comes of a suspected Nihil attack on the industrial cosmopolitan world of Corellia, right in the Galactic Core.
Sent to investigate are Jedi Masters Cohmac Vitus and Kantam Sy, along with Padawans Reath Silas and Ram Jomaram, all fighting their own private battles after months of unrelenting danger. On Corellia, Reath and Ram encounter a brazen young security specialist named Crash, whose friend was one of the victims of the Nihil attack, and they team up with her to infiltrate Corellia’s elite while the Masters pursue more diplomatic avenues. But going undercover with Crash is more dangerous than anyone expected, even as Ram pulls in his friend Zeen to help with an elaborate ruse involving a galactic pop star.
But what they uncover on Corellia turns out to be just one part of a greater plan, one that could lead the Jedi to their most stunning defeat yet….
The New York Times best-selling series continues…. For light and life!
Older is one f my favorite YA authors and he combines humor with high drama along with all the intensity that is expected from Star Wars. This is really fast-paced and a fun read for any Star Wars fan. He covers all of my favorite characters as they close out this story arc and it feels like you are watching it on screen rather than reading words on paper or on a screen. OH, that is awkward.
Each main character is trying to follow the path best suited for them and like most teens, they are struggling. The story has a slow build but the middle things get interesting both with love and fate. I am trying hard not to spill the whole plot but this has a LOT going for it. There is a lot of plot crossover in this third installment of The High Republic so you shouldn’t read this one if you don’t want spoilers before reading this one or the comic series.
