Centuries before the Skywalker saga is the era of the High Republic. The events of the Great Disaster galvanized the galaxy. The Starlight Beacon is the symbol of hope and prosperity in the outer rim. Tasked with keeping the peace are the Jedi. The Nihil has other plans. With Jedi Master Arkoff away, Jedi Knight Lily Tora-Asi is in charge of rebuilding the settlement and temple on Banchii. With the help of Padawan Keerin, they uncover a coordinated attack planned by the Nihil. Lily will do anything to protect the outpost and its people.

Star Wars: The High Republic: The Edge of Balance Vol 2 is part of the ambitious High Republic project. The epic is told through a collection of novels, comics, manga, and audio books by various authors. This volume in the series was penned by manga author Shima Shinya and fantasy writer Daniel Jose Older. The artwork by Mkiizu Sakakibara brings this short story to life.

Complete with lightsaber battles, this easy read is part of a grand story but also works as a standalone tale. With clean illustrations and a simple but exciting narrative, this is a great book for younger Star Wars fans.
