Audio Book Summary

The next adventure in the High Republic begins expanding the new era of Star Wars, with a story set generations before Light of the Jedi.

It is an age of exploration. Jedi travel the galaxy, expanding their understanding of the Force and all the worlds and beings connected by it. Meanwhile, the Republic, led by its two chancellors, works to unite worlds in an ever-growing community among near and distant stars.

On the close-orbiting planets of Eiram and E’ronoh, the growing pains of a galaxy with limited resources but unlimited ambition are felt keenly. The two worlds’ hatred for each other has fueled half a decade of escalating conflict and now threatens to consume surrounding systems. The last hope for peace emerges when heirs from the planets’ royal families plan to marry.

Before lasting peace can be established, an assassination attempt targeting the couple tilts Eiram and E’ronoh back into all-out war. To save both worlds, Jedi Knight Gella Nattai volunteers to uncover the culprit, while Chancellor Kyong appoints her own son, Axel Greylark, to represent the Republic’s interests in the investigation.

But Axel’s deep distrust of the Jedi sparks against Gella’s faith in the Force. She’s never met such a puffed-up, privileged party boy, and he’s never met a more self-serious, relentless do-gooder. The harder they work to untangle the shadowy web of the investigation, the more complicated the conspiracy appears to be. With accusations flying and potential enemies in every shadow, the pair will have to work together to have any hope of bringing the truth to light and saving both worlds.

    “Peace is a choice.” I think that this quote from part two perfectly encapsulates the story being told and the characters within it. In Convergence, we explore different planetary societies, the cultures, and values of characters who oppose each other and among all of it it still feels like a story that belongs within the Star Wars universe, despite taking place a long time before the main events that we’re so used to. I think the exploration of the different values and ideals of some of the main characters is what makes the story so interesting. The action is good. I was nervous that it wouldn’t be because I’ve read a few Star Wars novels where the action portions felt bland or unnecessary but Zoraída Cordova writes the action sequences so that they are exhilarating and entertaining. The romance, to me, was what I was truly nervous about. I’m not a big fan of romance within this universe unless it’s subtle or written with a certain flare. This is to say, I prefer character-driven stories and not romantic ones. The romance within this story is one that I enjoy very much. It’s not written as a second thought to the readers but as if it were second thought to the characters. I think that it was an incredibly smart move due to the fact that the characters have a lot going on (re: a war) and are getting to know each other as we get to know them. It’s cute and endearing and a highlight of the novel for me. To put it simply, Convergence was a great addition to the Star Wars universe and a good book overall. If you’re a fan of the found family trope the. This book is for you. It doesn’t come close to my personal favorite Star Wars books but it is definitely a book I would recommend to anyone looking for new Star Wars content. The only true problem that I have with Convergence is that at times it felt like it wasn’t on one straight path. It wasn’t completely all over the place but the story plot wasn’t as clear as I would have liked.
