Star Wars: The High Republic: Mission to Disaster by Justina Ireland, illustrated by Pétur Antonsson

Mission to Disaster Mission to Disaster by Justina Ireland
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I've really enjoyed Justina Ireland's other entries in the High Republic initiative so far, but this one just didn't really work for me. I did listen to it as an audiobook as the print edition was delayed, so I'll try reading it through and see how it holds up that way. Basically, the entire idea of this book is how to move Starlight Beacon around the galaxy via hyperspace, setting up moving it to Eiram so that it is in place for the events of THE FALLEN STAR. Also, it shoehorns the Halcyon Legacy into the story just to make it part of the canon now (the HL being the new, much-maligned-before-it's-even-opened Disney hotel experience). Fans of Vernestra Rwoh and the group of kids who have formed their own little band around her won't be dissappointed, as they all have a chance to shine in this novel.
