The High Republic saga continues with Daniel José Older’s latest novel, Midnight Horizon. As someone who grew up on the old, interconnected New Jedi Order series in the Legends canon, The High Republic books have been something of a homecoming. But what I’ve really appreciated about them is that they aren’t connecting pre-existing media across various formats and age-ranges but creating new media for everyone all at the same time.
Midnight Horizon is Daniel José Older latest Star Wars novel but he has also been deeply embedded in The High Republic comics and he wrote Race to Crashpoint Tower, a middle grade-targeted novel released a bit earlier in the saga. Midnight Horizon brings back a number of familiar faces in a story that appeals to both young adult and adult readers. One of the things that I enjoy most about The High Republic saga is that there’s a lot of pay off for reading all of the books and comics and the books have the potential to grow up with younger readers. Midnight Horizon is one of those titles that really drives that home.

About the Book
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!
