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... Don't miss all of the Star Wars: The High Republic adventures!

This was a fun Middle Grade book set during the Republic Fair. Jedi Padawan Ram Jomaran is tasked with trying to warn everyone about the Nihil and restore communications to the Tower. Also there is an entertaining chat with the Drengir 🍃

Really great book for readers young and old. The action was fast paced with good character moments. I loved it! I hope there are more with these characters

I also appreciate that the teenage padawans acted like teenagers and had the character growth felt organic

While I struggle with the “grown up“ books about the High Republic, I absolutely love the YA ones. It was the same with one. It was over way to fast. The characters were great, the humour was, the action was. The whole thing just fit. Older is a great author anyway and here he just shows it once again. This is how books for young readers should be. And for me. Can't wait for the next one!

MG story set adjacent to the action at the Galactic Fair on Vallo (The Rising Storm). Exciting for young readers who enjoy speeder-fights and flying with little to no truly scary moments to cause alarm. The padawans experience some fright, trepidation, elation, and ultimately success. There is growth in one of the kids and it demonstrates loyalty, friendship, and ingenuity in the face of danger. #starwarsbuddyread

BookwormAHN Good, after the last one we could all use something lighter and fun 😺 2w

repost for @BookwormAHN:

In May we read The Rising Storm. I enjoyed it but the ending was quite intense. What did everyone else think?
For June it's time for Race to Crashpoint Tower.

If anyone would like to be added or removed from the #StarWarsBuddyRead just let BookwormAHN know on the original post.

And May the Force Be With You!

Something I appreciate with the juvenile tie-ins is that they have a line or two of dialogue directly from the main books to mark their place in the larger story. They are not essential reads, but they do a good job of filling out the events of the other books. The children's picture books are fluff, but it's nice sometimes to have a visual of certain character, species, or events.

5/10:
Despite introducing me to the new characters of Ram, Lula, and Zeen as well as building upon Vernestra and Ty through an exciting story, this didn‘t add a lot for me. I have a feeling this has heavy ties to The High Republic Adventures comic series (also from author Daniel José Older), so hopefully I notice that when I finally read those. A very middle ground young reader novel for me though.

I know we don't NEED any more star wars books, but that doesn't keep me from wanting them. This book is from the same author that gave us YA ShadowShaper, the MG Dactyl Hill books, and another SW book Long shot which I believe was an argument for Han Shot first. (don't quote me on that.)

Out June 29
