Star Wars Midnight Horizon By Daniel José Older Spoiler-Free Book Review - The High Republic Era (Phase 1, Wave 3)

AS THE NIHIL SCHEME ON CORELLIA, A GROUP OF JEDI INVESTIGATE! This week brings the final spoiler-free book review from Phase 1 of the High Republic era; the young adult novel Midnight Horizon by Daniel José Older! As with all of Mike’s book reviews, he starts by giving his spoiler-free thoughts, then provides some minor plot details and confirms the book’s themes & the characters, then nearer the end he provides a brief description of the whole plot, confirming characters who appear, more detailed arcs, and more spoiler-y information! He also provides his full ranking of all 9 High Republic books. This review is perfect for any fans of The High Republic! This book is even more enjoyable if you know the stories within The High Republic Adventures comics (written by Daniel José Older), which Mike tackled in episodes 86, 90 & 93. Midnight Horizon is the young adult novel of the third wave of the High Republic’s first phase along with the junior novel Mission To Disaster and the adult novel The Fallen Star, all set in 230BBY. Mike has reviewed all books from phase 1, which are Light Of The Jedi (reviewed March 2021), A Test Of Courage (August ‘21) & Into The Dark (October ‘21), and The Rising Storm (November ‘21), Race To Crashpoint Tower (February ‘22) & Out Of The Shadows (March ’22), as well as The Fallen Star in April 2022 and Mission To Disaster in July 2022. Phase 2 (set 150 years before phase 1) has started with the YA book Path Of Deceit, the junior novel Quest For The Hidden City and the yet-to-be-released adult novel Convergence. Mike spoke with fellow High Republic architect Cavan Scott in April 2022 which can be found on this very feed or on YouTube, which has their conversation with video!
