Light of the Jedi

I found this book at Walmart. It can also be found in Target and possibly your local bookstore.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Following the perspectives of several characters in the Star Wars galaxy, we follow a timeline of an accident in hyperspace and the consequences of it. Then we follow along various events that occur around the galaxy simultaneously, political decisions, secret hideouts, and rescue missions.

It’s a wonderful adventure that dives deep into the Star Wars galaxy and we get to see a glimpse of the new version of the High Republic. I’m still bitter that Disney canned all the Old Republic and Solo twins etc. But I was pleasantly surprised with this story all the same and I am definitely going to read the next book.

The bridge ripped open. Hedda Casset died, not knowing if she had saved anyone at all.

Learning how the Jedi dynamic was during the High Republic was very interesting. Plus their technology was way cooler back then as well. The detail and story telling of what technologies are available, how hyperspace works, and how disconnected the Outer Rim was during the High Republic and then the question of why it’s still disconnected during the Old Republic timeline.

It has definitely raised a lot of questions for me and I suppose I’ll just have to keep reading to learn more. I highly recommend this read for Star Wars fans out there. Even if you’re just as upset or more upset about Disney’s takeover and erasure of the old content, it’s still a really great read and it adds more to the galaxy we all love. If you’re not a Star Wars fan or haven’t seen any material from Star Wars at all, you might get confused by alien species and some other stuff but you don’t need to have watched the movies beforehand. You could be absolutely new to Star Wars and you’ll be able to follow along.
