I liked Light of the Jedi more too, but still think Into the Dark was awesome. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, so I'll refrain from saying too much, but I absolutely have to say Geode is such a great character.

I'm interested to hear what you think when you've finished.

Here's my new ranking:


Light of the Jedi
Lost Stars
Master & Apprentice
Into the Dark
Tag and Bink
Doctor Aphra


Heir to the Empire
William Shakespeare's Star Wars
Dooku: Jedi Lost
Bloodline
Aftermath


Catalyst
A Test of Courage
Cobalt Squadron
Shadows of the Empire


Spoilers for Into the Dark:

[Show spoiler]

I think there was less about the Nihil because this was happening simultaneously as Light of the Jedi, so we already know what those characters were up to. I'm guessing Rising Storm will be a sequel to LotJ and it appears Out of the Shadow will be about what the characters from Test of Courage are doing during Rising Storm.

I love the Drengir. The way Claudia Gray writes this isn't necessarily a horror story, but my brain takes it and turns it up a notch as I make it my own.

Geode was right up my alley. I think the humor was welcomed between more intense scenes to break everything up a little.

I was surprised about Nan. I didn't see that coming.






I'm really loving the High Republic so far. In my opinion, the old Expanded Universe novels were very hit-or-miss. A few of the new canon novels are a little dry too, but so far everything in the High Republic has been excellent. I think they really went all out on this.

Into the Dark debuted #1 on the New York Times Young Adult Bestsellers list.

Finished Light of the Jedi yesterday. It was just ok. The Jedi were all pretty one dimensional and not interesting.

Finished “Into the Dark”. The book picked up dramatically after the half way point but imo that first half was rough to get through. Not a huge fan of the Derngir either. Overall I’d give it a 3/5. My least fav Claudia Gray novel I’ve read. The biggest plus to me was Reath Silas. Thought he was a great character and excited to read more about him in “Out of the Shadows.”

Picked up Into the Dark yesterday. I wasn’t planning on getting it, but I was at B&N looking for another book that they didn’t have. Saw Into the Dark and figured for $14 why not. Looks to be a pretty quick read.

Finished listening to ITD yesterday, and I have to agree with the consensus here, its definitely not as good as LOJ or ATOC. If anything, it plays out like a filler side story unless the Derngir end up coming back, which I doubt.

The only thing it really does is establish Reeth and Affie who seem to be major characters in "Out of the Shadows" based on the cover. Hopefully this means more Geode too, as he was the best character in the whole book.
