Out in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.

In this gripping sequel to Star Wars: The Rising Storm, the light of the Jedi faces its darkest hour.

Time and again, the vicious raiders known as the Nihil have sought to bring the golden age of the High Republic to a fiery end. Time and again, the High Republic has emerged battered and weary, but victorious thank to its Jedi protectors—and there is no monument to their cause grander than the Starlight Beacon.

Hanging like a jewel in the Outer Rim, the Beacon embodies the High Republic at the apex of its aspirations: a hub of culture and knowledge, a bright torch against the darkness of the unknown, and an extended hand of welcome to the furthest reaches of the galaxy. As survivors and refugees flee the Nihil’s attacks, the Beacon and its crew stand ready to shelter and heal.

The grateful Knights and Padawans of the Jedi Order stationed there finally have a chance to recover—from the pain of their injuries and the grief of their losses. But the storm they thought had passed still rages; they are simply caught in its eye. Marchion Ro, the true mastermind of the Nihil, is preparing his most daring attack yet—one designed to snuff out the light of the Jedi.

Review: Darth Vader and Son 2022 Wall Calendar

I’ve never reviewed a calendar before, so here goes. Chronicle Books sent me a 2022 calendar featuring the beautiful artwork of Darth Vader and his kids by the talented Jeffrey Brown. If you’re a fan of the Darth Vader and Son books, this is a great calendar option for next year.

Each month features a large size print of Jeffrey Brown’s Star Wars artwork. They’re great reproductions as each of them are pieces that have appeared in his Star Wars books. The calendar is done on nice thick paper. Each month is easy to read and features all the holidays and then some.

Overall, it’s a nice calendar and it looks great hanging on the wall. Unlike a lot of calendars, this one will be perfect for Star Wars fans, especially if you have kids. So if you need a last minute gift, or you just need to pick up a calendar for the new year, this one is a perfect option. Five out of five.
