Review: Star Wars: The High Republic – Light of the Jedi

Charles Soule is a good writer and has done a solid job introducing all the basics of the High Republic, and it is a good starting point for this new Star Wars transmedia project. Light of the Jedi also a masterclass of detailed worldbuilding. However, the heroes lack characterization and they seem, at times, brainwashed. Unless you have been craving the Kennedy’s Camelot and Superhero!Jedi, this novel might make you roll your eyes a little bit. That said, if you are in the market for full-metal villains and wholesome laser sword heroics, Light of the Jedi might be just your jam.
