Star Wars: The High Republic: Convergence by Zoraida Córdova

Book #16

Convergence Convergence by Zoraida Córdova
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Following the patterns set forth with the films, Phase II of The High Republic jumps back in time, becoming the prequel to Phase I. Zoraida Córdova’s Convergence is the first adult book in this Phase, following the events of Tessa Gratton and Justina Ireland’s Path of Deceit and George Mann’s Quest for the Hidden City.

I'm having a harder time getting into the swing of this Phase. Maybe it's because it is an apparently shortened schedule of books compared to Phase I (there are only 2 rounds of books with Phase II, as opposed to the 3 in Phase I), so I feel we are being rushed in the introductions to these characters and events. This book tackles the Forever War between Eiram and E'ronoh, as the Jedi and the Republic try to help resolve the conflict and broker a peace between to the two planets.

There are a lot of characters introduced very quickly, and I found myself becoming confused as to which planet, either Eiram and E'ronoh, we were dealing with at any point. Everything coalesced fairly well at the end, but i don't think it should have taken over 2/3 of the book to finally feel like the action was finally happening.

I'll be sticking with these, because Star Wars, but I'm hoping that the followup novel, Cataclysm, is a little more engaging.
