5.0 out of 5 stars It Keeps Getting Better and Better
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 25, 2021
The Rising Storm is the perfect follow up to Light of the Jedi. The book picks up a year after the events of LOTJ where Elzar Mann is still struggling with the vision he had at the end of the book. This book wasted no time getting into the action. A few chapters in we get a fight with the Nihil. A new character named Ty Yorrick is introduced in The Rising Storm and quickly we get to see her abilities as she encounters the Drengir. After introducing Yorrick we also get introduced to Stellan Gios who was referenced in Light of the Jedi but but never showed up in the book. Scott then spends a good portion of the book building these new characters as well as building on ones we are already familiar with while also setting up the stakes for the “Main Event” of the book. Once the action starts at the Republic fair, it goes on for over 130 pages. We get to see the same events at the fair through the eyes of multiple characters. Each character feels like the main one in the story. Every character has some sort of struggle and has a unique quality that makes them interesting.

Elzar Mann was one of my favorite characters in this book. Elzar has some internal struggles related to the vision he had in the first book of the series. Although this force vision he had is bothering him, the real struggle Elzar faces in my personal opinion is one a lot of people can relate to in the real world. I won’t spoil the book, but because of his character arc and his struggle in the book I found him to be the most interesting.

Marchion Ro is not a character that we get much of in this book. However, what we do get of Ro in this book was very intriguing and sets him up to be a bigger problem by the end of the book in the “Final Battle.” This also builds him up to be a bigger threat in the books to come.

The ending of this book was by far the most emotionally exhausting. I felt like I knew what was going to happen in the story and yet I was still left stunned when it happened. It was like watching a very slow train wreck unfold. I knew it was coming and yet it still hit me pretty hard.

This book although feels like a follow up to Light of the Jedi, also tells its own complete story. The book can stand on its own while also having connectivity to the story that came before as well as build on what will most likely happen next.

Also, this book is filled with easter eggs, references, and connections to other canon novels as well as some legends ideas. Overall, this book is as good as it gets when it comes to Star Wars.

Book continues about 1 year after the events of
Light of the jedi, To tell a new story in which centre is the republic fair (rather then the great disaster) it brings new and very interesting characters, eg: Ty Yorrick and also continues the journey of previously established characters and gives them more time to be properly developed. It's pace is slower the LOTJ but it's story is very interesting from start to finish and I'll never felt bored. Definitely a good read for KOTOR/SWTOR fans
