The second adult novel in the “Star Wars: The High Republic” series will be titled Star Wars: The High Republic: The Rising Storm. The novel is slated for a July, 2021 release. 

What they’re saying:

  • Author Cavan Scott: “Writing a Star Wars novel is always an honor, and this has been no different. It’s a responsibility I never take lightly, especially while opening up a new era in Star Wars storytelling such as the High Republic.”
  • Scott on the plot of The Rising Storm: “The Rising Storm sees the Nihil taking their reign of terror to the next level, building on their appearances in Light of the Jedi and beyond. Standing in their way this time are newly elevated Jedi Council member Stellan Gios, along with Padawan Bell Zettifar and an intriguing new character, the saber-for-hire Ty Yorrick who I’ve had a blast creating.”
  • Scott on his new character’s backstory: “Yorrick is a Force-sensitive monster hunter with a mysterious past. What is that past? Well, that would be telling. All I’d say is that you don’t want to get in her way, as Stellan and the others soon realize for themselves.”
