Long before the Clone Wars, the Empire, or the First Order, the Jedi lit the way for the galaxy in a golden age known as the High Republic!Vernestra Rwoh is a new Jedi Knight at age sixteen, but her first real assignment feels an awful lot like babysitting. She's been charged with supervising twelve-year old aspiring inventor Avon Starros on a cruiser headed to the dedication of a wondrous new space station called Starlight Beacon.But soon into their journey, bombs go off aboard the cruiser. While the adult Jedi try to save the ship, Vernestra, Avon, Avon's droid J-6, a Jedi Padawan, and an ambassador's son make it to an escape shuttle, but communications are out and supplies are low. They decide to land on a nearby moon, which offers shelter but not much more. And unbeknownst to them, danger lurks in the forest….Rich internal third-person dialogue reveals dollops of inner turmoil for each character at key moments as well as providing some much-needed world-building to make this a winning choice. A great read for Star Wars fans young and old." -- Kirkus Reviews

Interesting characters, so-so story for them to inhabit.
If I could, I'd have given this book 3.5 stars rather than 4, but 3 seemed a bit harsh. While I doubt I'll remember the particulars of the story a month or two from now, I will remember the characters. They are worthy of 4 stars. I hope we get to see more of them. Particularly Avon. Seeds were planted for her, and I can't imagine those just being dropped by the wayside. Only future books will tell.
Keep it coming!
Loving the High Republic. The five main characters in this book are a fine addition to the Star Wars universe. Can’t wait to read the next book.
