Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-Gray drops readers into a perfectly spine-chilling survival story in this "High Republic" YA novel. Two hundred years before the Skywalker Saga, Padawan Reath and his Jedi Master Jora are assigned to Starlight, a beacon for the Republic in frontier space. Before they and the rest of their companions get there, the ship is forced out of hyperspace and dropped into an unknown system. With disaster imminent and communication almost impossible, the Jedi take charge of the survivors and seek shelter in a mysterious, abandoned space station-only to realize as they explore that the Dark side got there first. The station's arboretum has overgrown most of the complex, which is ominous enough, but there are also mysterious idols hiding in the tangled vines and disturbing the Force. Gray's worldbuilding and characters are "Star Wars" at its best, introducing readers to the familiar canon with High Republic flavor. The work is told from multiple points of view and in two time lines. Reath is indisputably the protagonist, working his way from recalcitrant archivist to stalwart Knight. The novel features not one but two burgeoning supervillains, and Gray manages the stakes and the emotional tension of the heroes flawlessly. Reath is white; there is non-alien diversity in the secondary characters. VERDICT Perfect for even casual fans, this novel is action-packed with adventure and mystery. With "Star Wars" interest at an all-time high, this is recommended for general purchase.-Emmy Neal, Lake Forest Lib., ILα(c) Copyright 2011.

1.0 out of 5 stars The characters are bland, the villains are awful, and the story was absolutely boring
By TheGeeksAttic on February 2, 2021
Star Wars: Into the Dark was written by New York Times Bestselling Author, Claudia Gray. This is the first YA novel within for the High Republic Era.

SUMMARY: Jedi apprentice Reath Silas is to report to his master on the Starlight Beacon, to work out in the outer rim frontier. He has no interest in such a thing, he'd rather stay on Coruscant and work in the archives. As he and a few other Jedi hitch a ride on hired ship, the vessel, they have to pull out of hyperspace as a galactic emergency unfolds.

An old space station is nearby, the vessel makes its way to the space station, along with a few other ships in the area. They will have to stay there until hyperspace is once again safe to travel. While in the station, a darkness is discovered. The Jedi take it upon themselves to remove the darkness, but with a strange twist, the actions taken lead to a new disorderly Jedi, an odd discovery, and frustration.

CHARACTERS: I'm picking two random characters to talk about.

Cohmac Vitas - He's a Jedi Master, long ago he went on a mission that didn't go as plan. The mishaps of that mission have a long lasting effect on him. He also has a hard time with the rules of the Jedi Order. The training the Jedi receive to have a lack of emotion and attachment, make him angry.

Affie Hollow - She works for the Byne guild, on board the ship called, the vessel. She lost her parents a long time ago, but was taken in by the leader of the guild. So, some day, Affie would take control of the guild. She finds something unusual on the space station which leads to the discover of shady business going on within the guild.

OVERALL THOUGHTS: This book, was actually pretty disappointing. Every single time I open a Star Wars book, I have high hopes and expect excellent storytelling. I really want to enjoy the book I'm spending all my time on. Claudia Gray normally tells fantastic stories in Star Wars, sadly, this is the exception.

Reading Into the Dark was a chore! The magic of Gray’s storytelling was absent. The characters were bland, the villains were awful (as in unintentionally comical), and the story was absolutely boring. There was a secondary story being told in the book about a past mission by a few of the main characters. It was pointless and a waste of ink. Many parts of the story seem to just skip around details. Descriptions were lacking, but for the most part, dialogue wasn't too bad.

The High Republic main villains are the Nihil. This book does have the Nihil, which come across as an afterthought without any sort of intimidation or disturbing factor. The other villains in the book, the Drengir, look creepy if you've seen the art. They are dumb in this story. If you've seen the film/musical of Little Shop of Horrors... you've seen the villains. (Yes, the plant villains speak basic.)

Many aspects of the story had potential had they been altered slightly. The twist that unfolds was disappointing and frustrating.

RATING: I give Star Wars: The High Republic: Into the Dark an F. I did not expect this to happen with a Claudia Gray book... I’m sad.

Do I recommend you pick up and read Star Wars: Into the Dark by Claudia Gray? To get the bigger picture on what's taking place throughout the galaxy during the High Republic, yes. If it your just slightly interested in this era, no.
