The heroes of the High Republic era return to face a shattered peace and a fearsome foe.



The Rising Storm

Are you guys ready for more Star Wars? Silly question isn’t it? Of course you guys are ready. In terms of printed content, Star Wars have been nailing it so far. We’ve had Thrawn, Doctor Aphra, Victory’s Price and many more. There has been so much to read, Star Wars fans have been spoilt for choice. Now, we have the High Republic’s next chapter hitting our bookshelves this June. That’s right, Cavan Scott’s The Rising Storm is coming out and the publication date has been moved. You can grab your own copy on June 29th.

Check out the synopsis for The Rising Storm:

In the wake of the Great Hyperspace Disaster and the heroism of the Jedi, the Republic continues to grow, bringing more worlds together under a single unified banner. Under the leadership of Chancellor Lina Soh, the spirit of unity extends throughout the galaxy, with the Jedi and the newly established Starlight Beacon station at the vanguard.

In celebration, the chancellor plans The Republic Fair, a showcase of the possibilities and the peace of the expanding Republic — a peace the Jedi hope to foster. Stellan Gios, Bell Zettifar, Elzar Mann, and others join the event as ambassadors of harmony. But as the eyes of the galaxy turn toward the Fair, so too does the fury of the Nihil. Their leader, Marchion Ro, is intent on destroying this unity. His storm descends on the pageantry and celebration, sowing chaos and exacting revenge.

As the Jedi struggle to curb the carnage of the rampaging Nihil, they come face-to-face with the true fear their enemy plans to unleash across the galaxy — the kind of fear from which even the Force cannot shield them.

The Light of the Jedi was a fantastic introduction into this new era of Star Wars so we can’t wait to see where we’re transported next. Given the seeds that were planted in the first book we believe it’s safe to say that we’re in for quite a ride.
