Star Wars: The High Republic: Quest for the Hidden City

Lauren at Cantina Cast has a review of George Mann’s "Star Wars: The High Republic: Quest for the Hidden City," the first middle-grade novel in Phase 2 of The High Republic. Here’s the synopsis:

"Daring pilots chart new routes through hyperspace, while Pathfinder teams make contact with frontier worlds to invite them to join the Republic. When a Pathfinder team’s communications droid is found drifting in space, damaged, and bearing a cryptic message, Jedi Knight Silandra Sho and her Padawan, Rooper Nitani, are sent to find the missing team members.

Their investigation leads them to the planet Gloam, a ravaged world said to be haunted by mythical monsters. Can the Jedi find the missing Pathfinders and unravel the mystery of the monsters? The answers lie in a hidden city beneath the planet’s surface…"
