Why you should read the High Republic books
The High Republic books are a great way to learn about the Star Wars universe. They offer a unique perspective on the characters and events that take place in the movies.
The High Republic books are set in a time period known as the “Dark Ages” of the Star Wars universe. This was a time when the Galactic Republic was at its height, but there was still much conflict and darkness in the galaxy.
The High Republic books follow a group of characters known as the “Jedi Knights of Hope.” These knights are tasked with keeping the peace in the galaxy and protecting those who cannot protect themselves.
The Jedi Knights of Hope are led by a character named Master Yoda. Master Yoda is one of the most powerful Jedi Masters in the galaxy, and he is wise beyond his years.
The first book in the series is titled “The High Republic: A Test of Courage.” This book follows Master Yoda and his team of Jedi Knights as they investigate a mysterious threat that is targeting members of the Galactic Senate.
The second book in the series is titled “The High Republic: Darkest Hour.” This book follows Master Yoda and his team as they battle Darth Vader, who is leading an army of Sith warriors known as the Empire.
The third book in the series is titled “The High Republic: Light of The Jedi.” This book follows Master Yoda and his team as they investigate a powerful weapon that has been stolen by Darth Vader.
The fourth book in the series is titled “The High Republic: The Rising Storm.” This book follows Master Yoda and his team as they battle Darth Sidious, who is planning to destroy the Jedi Order.
What the High Republic books are about
The High Republic books are a series of canonical Star Wars novels set in an era known as the High Republic. The books explore the time period when the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order are at their zenith, over 200 years before the rise of Darth Vader. The series will consist of multiple interconnected stories written by different authors, with each book focusing on a different character or plotline.
The first two books in the series are Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule, and A Test of Courage by Justina Ireland. These two books will be released on January 5th and February 2nd, respectively. While you can read either book first, we recommend reading Light of the Jedi first, as it sets up the major events and characters that will appear in the rest of the series.

The setting of the High Republic books
The High Republic books are set in an era when the Jedi are at their peak. It’s a time of peace and prosperity, and the Republic is expanding its reach across the galaxy. But this expansion comes with a price. In order to protect its citizens, the Republic has established outposts on the fringes of explored space. These outposts are staffed by brave men and women who are sworn to defend the Republic against all threats.
The High Republic books follow the stories of these brave men and women as they defend the Republic against a new threat: an ancient evil that has awakened from its millennia-long slumber. This evil is known as the Nihil, and it wants nothing more than to destroy everything the Jedi have built.
The first book in the series, Light of the Jedi, follows a group of Jedi as they battle the Nihil on an outpost on the edge of explored space. The second book, Into The Dark, follows a group of Jedi as they travel deep into enemy territory in order to stop the Nihil from reaching the heart of the Republic. The third book, The Rising Storm, follows a group of Jedi as they fight to prevent the Nihil from destroying everything they hold dear.
So, what order should you read these books in? Light of the Jedi should be read first, followed by Into The Dark and then The Rising Storm.
