Star Wars: The High Republic: Midnight Horizon
Centuries before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, in the era of the glorious High Republic, the Jedi are the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy! After a series of staggering losses, the Republic seems to finally have the villainous Nihil marauders on the run, and it looks like there's light at the end of the tunnel. Until word comes of a suspected Nihil attack on the industrial cosmopolitan world of Corellia, right in the Galactic Core. Sent to investigate are Jedi Masters Cohmac Vitus and Kantam Sy, along with Padawans Reath Silas and Ram Jomaram, all fighting their own private battles after months of unrelenting danger. On Corellia, Reath and Ram encounter a brazen young security specialist named Crash, whose friend was one of the victims of the Nihil attack, and they team up with her to infiltrate Corellia's elite while the Masters pursue more diplomatic avenues. But going undercover with Crash is more dangerous than anyone expected, even as Ram pulls in his friend Zeen to help with an elaborate ruse involving a galactic pop star. But what they uncover on Corellia turns out to be just one part of a greater plan, one that could lead the Jedi to their most stunning defeat yet…. The New York Times best-selling series continues.... For light and life!
Good book, meh narration.
The book itself tells a fun story, and the voice acting and effects are awesome. But the narration outside of the dialogue and voice acting of it was an issue. He reads like he’s racing through the book at points, and it gets hard to follow. For this reason most of the book I found forgettable or entirely impossible to pay attention to, sometimes a later chapter would resolve a previous chapter that I completely forgot because it may have been a flashback or exposition so the narrator flew through it. I may buy the physical book so that I can experience the story better but I’m not a fan of this narrators work on this book.
This installment is too focused on real life politics and intimate relationships between characters to tell a story of the same quality this series has so far delivered. Story is decent but not focused.
Not interesting enough
Read and listened to most of the High Republic series. Looking forward to what happens after the destruction of Starlight Beacon. This book could not pull me in. I like two of the padawan’s, but couldn’t get into the story.
