Star Wars The High Republic: The Fallen Star review!
"What happens when the light of the Jedi goes dark?"

Star Wars: The High Republic: Race to Crashpoint Tower review!
The second wave of The High Republic books are underway, headlined by the brilliant and devastating novel The Rising Storm, written by Cavan Scott, that serves as the headliner to this wave of storytelling.

Star Wars: The Lightsaber Collection review!
Ever since Ben Kenobi in A New Hope introduced us to the lightsaber, we've been hooked. "This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight," he tells Luke Skywalker. "Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. An elegant weapon for a more civilized age." In the decades since, we have seen tons of different lightsabers, [...]
