Liam and Sanak give their review of the latest young adult book from Star Wars: The High Republic Phase 3, Defy the Storm by Tessa Gratton & Justina Ireland. Gratton & Ireland also co-wrote the excellent Path of Deceit for The High Republic Phase 2. In this book, Vernestra Rwoh and Avon Starros embark on a mission behind the Nihil's Storm Wall into the Occlusion Zone in search of Vernestra's padawan, Imri Cantaros, who went missing after the fall of Starlight Beacon. Joining them are characters from The High Republic: Out of the Shadows such as Sylvestri Yarrow, Jordanna Sparkburn, and Xylan Graf.


Sanak gives a shorts-friendly review for the first junior novel of The High Republic Phase III, "Escape from Valo", written by Daniel José Older & Alyssa Wong. He covers his overall thoughts on the characters and importance to The High Republic Phase III story, and also provides a score and ranking among the other The High Republic junior novels released so far.
