The Star Wars: The High Republic initiative has been revealing what the galaxy was like hundreds of years before the movies and the rise of the Empire. Now Lucasfilm and Penguin Random House are officially kicking off Phase 2 of the High Republic saga with the release of Zoraida Córdova’s novel Star Wars: The High Republic – Convergence.
Convergence delves even further back in the Star Wars timeline, during an era where the Jedi are peacekeepers and explorers. But when the leaders of the twin planets Eiram and E’ronoh are targeted for assassination, it falls on a Jedi Knight and the son of a Republic Chancellor to get to the bottom of this twisted plot.
In this exclusive excerpt from the audiobook version of The High Republic: Convergence, Star Wars fans meet Axel Greylark for the first time and learn why this pampered son of a politician would rather spend his time in the seedy depths of Coruscant than serve the galaxy.
