Diving into the uncharted territory of the expanded Star Wars myth is no easy feat. Billionaire sci-fi franchise books have been around for decades, but it seems for the first time a series is exploring prequel territory, even prequels.
Last year, Disney’s Star Wars owners announced that they are creating a new era in Star Wars history: the High Republic.
The High Republic is a period in the Star Wars universe that predates The Phantom Menace prequel trilogy, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith by about 200 years.
For big Star Wars fans, The High Republic comes out just 800 years after The Old Republic, which means the Jedi are in full swing at the time of reading.
Enter Light of the Jedi, the first New Universe novel of the High Republic, written by Charles Soule, best known for his series of Kylo Ren graphic novels.
In short, Light of the Jedi is a Star Wars story that fans of myths dream of reading.
It’s the heyday of the Jedi rule, and mystical warriors are now best perceived as galactic superheroes who strike at any time to fight the forces of evil.
In the case of the Light of the Jedi on Hetzel, a planet in the galaxy, a great calamity is about to strike that could potentially kill millions of innocent people, a challenge for a small group of fierce and powerful Jedi Knights and Masters. . …
Some of the characters in this story are already taking on cult forms like Mace Windu and Master Yoda while breaking hearts and expectations.
It features perhaps one of the most interesting characters in the entire series: Jedi Master Loden Great storm.
The Twi’lek Jedi is nothing new, but he is such an interesting Jedi. Great Storm not only has a good name but is also full of subtle nuances that make her an incredible force of nature throughout the book and one whose presence will be felt throughout the series forever, in the future.
The 400-page tome contains a series of Star Wars phrases: unequaled odds, betrayal, the fight between the Master and Padawan, but they are not rewritten here.
The Light of the Jedi scene collection could have been taken directly from other well-established examples of Star Wars content, extremely good examples, and fans will admire it.
However, the novel has its weaknesses, although they are few.
His story, from the first page, is completely fascinating and turns the pages completely, however, shortly after he suffers a slight pause.
Some of the required exposures throughout the book have been a bit tight and may make some readers want to go back to dealing with high-stakes Jedi issues when things go wrong.
With that said, many fans of the franchise will love this attention to detail and possibly longer for an even deeper understanding of Star Wars in the future.
