The next book in the High Republic series, The Rising Storm, will be published on June 29th, and I can’t wait! There is an alternative cover that will be available, however, from Out of Print, with artwork by Jama Jurabaev:
This is the entire wrap-around cover:
It looks fantastic. It shows Jedi Master Stellan Gios preparing to engage the Nihil, with Chancellor Lina Soh on a balcony above. Her two loyal targons, Matari and Voru, flank each side of Stellan. It also looks like some Jedi are riding some kind of flying creatures. The main Nihil opponent, with the red laser hatchet (it probably has a name, but I’m not sure what it is, lol) is the Twi’lek Lourna Dee.
The special edition is signed by author Cavan Scott, and comes with a tote bag with the same illustration. You can get it for $50 from outofprint.com.
I’m going with the original cover, which is just as cool, in my opinion, if not as flashy:
I believe that’s Indeera Stokes, Stellan Gios, and Padawan Bell Zettifar.
Regardless of the cover, I’m eager to read this book and can’t wait to find out what happens next in the High Republic.
