Star Wars The High Republic: Race to Crashpoint Tower

Another exciting story in the #1 New York Times best-selling series!

The Republic Fair is coming! Visitors from all over the galaxy are traveling to the planet Valo for a massive, awe-inspiring festival celebrating the Republic. While his fellow Valons prepare for the fair, Jedi Padawan Ram Jomaram is hiding out in his favorite place: a dingy garage filled with mechanical parts and tools. But when a security alarm goes off on the nearby hilltop nicknamed Crashpoint Peak, he ventures out with his trusty droid V-18 to investigate. There he discovers that someone has knocked out Valo's communications tower―a frightening sign that Valo, and the Republic Fair, are in danger. Sure enough, as Ram races to warn the Jedi, the dreaded Nihil unleash a surprise attack! It's up to Ram to face down the enemy at Crashpoint Tower and send a call for help to the Republic. Luckily, he's about to get some assistance from unexpected new friends…

As I really enjoyed the previous book "A Test of Courage and its characters, I couldn't miss this one and am I glad I picked this up and read. This book is really catchy and fun to read with some really deep and relatable concepts and ideas. Simply loved it. I just recomend you to read the High Republic Adventure before getting into this one, as some characters of those comics pop on this book.

I enjoyed this book much more that I though I would. This book is a great companion to the Rising Storm. Apart from returning characters for A Test of Courage it also introduces other characters. For a continuity lover life me I really like how this book flows perfectly into The Rising Storm. The other thing I like about the book and thus series is that they show others force users and the Jedi way is not the only way. The Republic Fair attact was a huge battle it is great that this books concentrates on some of the battles that the main book did not. Itvus great idea for Older to use his characters from Star Wars the High Republic Adventures here. I will definitely be getting that series next.

Compared to Justine Ireland's Middle Grade novel, this one was just all right. This novel was written in a way that readers at 8 to 12 would be engaged with but enough to keep adults turning the pages too. This book is heavy on the action, especially at the end. I like the first half of the book more due to Older giving detail to the characters and their quirks and motivations. He also introduces and reintroduces a lot characters from this era in Star Wars. The last 50% was straight up nonstop action. I did like some aspects of the action that went down, specially when *SPOILER* The Drengir show up*END SPOILER. other than that, the Nihil are just a cartoonish biker gang with nothing else to offer. These guys are straight out of every generic bad guy movie you've ever seen. I'm nowhere near a fan of them or their involvement with fighting the Jedi and the Republic but so far, after everything I've seen about them, the Nihil haven't done anything that surprises me yet. In the end, this was a Middle Grade book to the core and its easily more forgettable once you finish reading it. I felt that the ending was rushed but it does end without a cliffhanger, so the story itself stands on its own. You do not have to be familiar with the other High Republic novels to get into this one. Each one can be read in whichever order you choose.
