Book Review: ‘Into the Dark’ by Claudia Gray

Into the Dark is a YA book that is part of The High Republic initiative, written by Claudia Gray and released in February 2021.

I want to start by saying that I think that Claudia Gray is a fantastic writer. Master and Apprentice and Bloodline are two of my favorite canon novels. I personally think she is best when writing her adult novels. I thought that Leia Princess of Alderaan was a fantastic book and Lost Stars was a great read. Claudia definitely has the best track record of any of the newer authors in the canon.

Unfortunately, Into the Dark is probably her weakest novel, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad.

Book Review: ‘A Test of Courage’ by Justina Ireland

A Test of Courage by Justina Ireland is a brand new middle grade novel in The High Republic series from Disney-Lucasfilm Press. It was released in January 2021. 

Middle grade is a difficult genre to write in Star Wars. Star Wars books are known for epic battles, difficult philosophical questions, and references galore. Middle grade books just don’t do that. Mostly because they are aimed at a much younger audience (the publisher’s suggested age range is 8-12), but also because they are naturally shorter. Middle grade books are more the length of an adult novella, and while they have tremendous value to literature, they just are more difficult for me to get into. A Test of Courage is no different.

Review: ‘Light of the Jedi’ by Charles Soule

Light of the Jedi is a first taste of The High Republic, the new publishing initiative from Disney and Lucasfilm. The project spans several multimedia forms, including novels, comics, and the upcoming Disney Plus scripted program The Acolyte. The High Republic brings up to a time period previously unexplored by any Star Wars literature, including the non-canon Expanded Universe – 200 years before the events of the Skywalker Saga. A Star Wars publishing project of this magnitude has not been attempted since the days of the New Jedi Order – the early 2000’s. Thankfully, Light of the Jedi is a solid introduction to a new era of Star Wars, and captures everything that made us fall in love with the Jedi.
