    A very good book. Good story and artwork, which perfectly fits the story. I just have to say from the start I love to continuity between the novel and comics (dispite being from different companies). If you read all of the IDW and junior novels you will recognise a couple of cameos. This book starts right from the end of Rising Storm. A Jedi has been killed by an unknown entity others in its presence have been driven close yo madness. Now the evil Nihils are claiming to be able to sell the weapon A very good book.

Now the evil Nihils are claiming to be able to sell the weapon responsible, though again not everything is as it seems. I also like the way the Jedi are more unsure of themselves, and more emotional (even when they are not trying to be). The interaction between yhe characters is great, but it did feel a bit rushed. I wish this was six issues book as I feel there was so much more that could have been covered but was left out to fit five issues.

I’ve been upfront about how much I don’t really care for Older’s approach to “Star Wars,” and unfortunately, “Trail of Shadows” is pretty much Exhibit A in terms of representing everything I dislike about his work in the galaxy far, far away: the dialogue is too dialogue, the plot is scattered, even bordering on being outright messy, the characters feel thin and not especially fleshed out, and overall, the narrative lacks a d Writer Daniel Jose Older’s “Trail of Shadows” is…well, it’s something.

    THIS was just so so so strong. The main plot, the integration of other characters, just so good. Through the High Republic, Daniel José Older has quickly gone from one of my least favorite SW authors to one of my favorites.

    SOOOOO GOOD!! i love when star wars incorporates different genres. the murder mystery/noir aspect worked really well and the art style added to it rather than retracted (i’m looking at you high republic vol 3). so glad it’s finally on marvel unlimited.

    So that was an absolutely fantastic limited comic series. I'll admit comics are not my thing, so far The High Republic ones have been average to good but haven't truly gripped me.

Jedi Master Loden lies dead in the rain. Cause of death? Unknown. As his body rapidly dissolves into dust it quickly becomes apparent to his brothers-in-arms that they are facing a threat that defies all rational explanation. In Star Wars: The High Republic -Trail of Shadows by writer Daniel Jose Older and artist D Shrii Ka Rai Ka Rai We're coming to take you away They'll do what they can They'll do what they must But when they do find you All there'll be is dust... The battle of Grizal: Jedi vs Nihil. Jedi Master Loden lies dead in the rain. Cause of death? Unknown. As his body rapidly dissolves into dust it quickly becomes apparent to his brothers-in-arms that they are facing a threat that defies all rational explanation. In Star Wars: The High Republic -Trail of Shadows by writer Daniel Jose Older and artist David Wachter the noble knights of the galaxy are shaken by this mystery. This story is set around 200 years prior to the events portrayed in the movies, during a time when the High Republic governed the galaxy with the help of the Jedi Order. Keeping the peace within such a vast territory often involves clashes with the Nihil, an organised group of marauders from the Outer Rim Territories who frequently raid worlds on the Frontier. In the Jedi Temple on the Republic capital planet Coruscant, Stellan and Emerick discuss the events of that fateful day. They were attacked by someone, or something, that none of them can remember clearly... a mysterious entity that also had a profoundly disturbing effect on their minds: at least two of the Jedi present are in shock and Stellan still has nightmares about it. And both he and Emerick are haunted by a strange old song... Sian Holt is a musician, part of a live band that performs in the nightclubs of Coruscant. That is not all she is, however; she has a nice little side line as a private investigator. When she sees her mercenary friend Keefar Branto in the audience, associating with a shady character, her curiosity is piqued and she follows him into a very disreputable part of town. They are ambushed by a very large, very unpleasant alien. Branto dies in the skirmish and Sian barely survives. Meanwhile, Jedi Emerick has been charged with investigating the mysterious entity that turned Master Loden into a pile of dust. Aided by Cuetoo, a droid mounted on his back, he strives to unravel the mystery. What is the connection of the strange old song? He and Stellan recall it from when they were both younglings, huddled terrified in their beds, haunted by dreams of a sinister boogeyman... Emerick and Sian are both called to a meeting with the Supreme Chancellor of the High Republic, Lina Soh. They are told that Branto was working undercover for Republic security, trying to track down Nihil agents who are seeking to sell a weapon of immense power on the black market. Emerick and Sian have to work together to find this weapon which, Emerick feels certain, is connected to the mysterious power that caused the death of Loden and almost drove his fellow knights to insanity. This is a compelling story that takes our two investigators to many exotic locations, featuring a rich array of alien characters (both familiar and new), imaginative landscapes and neatly designed spacecraft, smoothly illustrated by Wachter. The arena of the 'Old' Republic is brought vividly to life with elements that tie in nicely with the readers' collective memory of the original movies. Sian's band is an hommage to the classic Mos Eisley Cantina, and there are many recognisable species dotted among the diverse crowds. The tone here is a little different to most Star Wars tales you might be familiar with. The grand space opera setting is very much in evidence of course, but our two heroes - like a transplanted Mulder and Scully - are space-faring sleuths confronting an enigma of paranormal dimensions. There is a unique angle here that is refreshing for a franchise that has been reinterpreted many times, mostly in the same old vein: in this narrative, the Jedi - those super-powered saviours who can always call upon the quasi-mystical Force to save the day - are on the back foot. They are facing something which even they do not understand. This disturbing phenomenon, whatever it is, is something that they are not only matched by, it is something to which they are specifically vulnerable. This shadowy, Lovecraftian horror only kills Jedis. The gallant superior warriors are now the helpless victims. In terms of the very ethos of Star Wars, this is a sickening lurch of a paradigm shift. It's Jedi kryptonite. When your omnipotent heroes are dropping like flies, hope itself ... turns to dust.

    The High Republic has been amazingly creative and fresh so far. The one thing that was kind of an inconsistent let-down for me was most of the main comic line by Cavan Scott. I was willing to put that down to writing style and story presentation. I’d only read Older’s short story in From a Certain Point of View ( Born in the Storm ) and wasn’t too impressed with that, but the premise of this comic and the reception it got convinced me to give it a shot.

Besides, the author seems like a wonderful guy with heart for the era and franchise. I was not disappointed and I think this is the best High Republic comic far, and probably the best Star Wars comic I’ve read. Where in the mainline comic the balance between action, character development (or what there was of it) and plot progression where all over the place Trail of Shadows is a controlled and well told story. I love Noir in my Space Operas and the comics pulls it of wonderfully. Both Emerick and Sian are great characters that add very unique views of the workings of justice, the criminal underworld and the Jedi order during the High Republic. The way their relationship grows over the events is natural and very interesting. They contrast and complement each other very nicely. There’s a bunch of diverse and interesting side characters including some love for the Chadra-Fan species and a role for Jedi Master Buckets of Blood! Like the rest of The High Republic project, this is an interwoven story that picks up straight from the events of The Rising Storm and throughout crosses paths with multiple other stories, finishing with the events of The Fallen star . As a noir detective tale it's competent, but its value is raised so much higher by knowing the many characters and events that get touched upon from different perspectives. In that, this comic is supplementary material to the bigger stories at play, but it pulls it off very well. Likewise, the art in the mainline comic was kind of all over the place, especially in the middle parts, but here the illustrations are beautiful and detailed. The facial expression given as much love as the surroundings and space ships. There were some returning characters which were drawn quite differently from what we’re used to in their own comics, but I was fine with that. Once again, the sequences involving the horror of (view spoiler)[the Nameless (who get so much new info in this story) (hide spoiler)] , is displayed terrifically and terrifying. So yeah, I really enjoyed this and look forward to re-reading it and seeing the characters return and develop in future content. I can’t wait to see the connections in Phase 2 of The High Republic.

    230 BBY. Set between the novels 'The Rising Storm' by Cavan Scott and 'The Fallen Star' by Claudia Gray, this graphic novel follows Jedi investigator Emerick Caphtor and private eye Sian Holt as they follow the trail of a mysterious Jedi-killing weapon used by the Nihil.

I very much enjoyed the premise of this book, pairing two experienced investigators, one Jedi and one not, as they explore one of the more mysterious elements of the High Republic narrative, the so-called Eaters of the Force. It also explores the divisions within the villains of the series, the Nihil, and shows the backstabbing and internal conflict of the violent raiders. All in all it's a story idea that I really liked and which felt like something the rest of the High Republic publishing project was missing. The problem, however, is specifically how the High Republic stories have been planned. Because they were created by a handful of primary authors, Older among them, there has been a tendency to treat High Republic books as if they're all one narrative. That means to get the full story of any one book, you have to have also read the other novels, graphic novels, YA books etcetera. This book in particular suffers from this because it's reliant on you having read 'The Rising Storm' for set-up but then also doesn't actually resolve the main mystery itself, ending in a sort-of 'To be continued elsewhere...' moment. It's very frustrating, not least because this was a miniseries which could easily have had its own closed narrative whilst still tying-in to the larger one. I definitely would've rated this book higher if the core mystery had actually been properly resolved. The fact that it wasn't feels like a huge mistake in what is ostensibly supposed to be a detective story and it's pretty frustrating. Imagine if Poirot never actually revealed whodunnit... * More reviews here: https://fsfh-book-review2.webnode.com *

    The High Republic has been a mixed bag for me in the comics realm, but this is the most solid entry I've seen. It's still inconsistent, especially in the second half, where Older has to quickly wrap up the central mystery while also tieing it into the events of the Fallen Star novel and setting up the next phase of THR that's coming in the Fall. So, yeah, it's a crowded series when it probably should've been the opposite of that, but I enjoyed myself.

So, yeah, it's a crowded series when it probably should've been the opposite of that, but I enjoyed myself. The noir-adjacent vibes of the first couple of issues are excellent and make me wish the whole miniseries had maintained that style. Still, the latter half has its fair share of moments, and even though it loses the mystery angle it marketed itself with, it does crossover with the broader THR landscape in some satisfying ways. I really dug the almost-horror elements, too, and would love to see Older continue in this vein. He's got a knack for character dynamics that lends itself well to this genre of mystery, and it's a nice change of pace from the YA/Middle-Grade stuff he usually does (which I also tend to enjoy, for the most part). I wasn't blown away by the artwork, which shouldn't be surprising, considering how in line with the rest of Marvel's Star Wars series have been. They need to do something about that because as serviceable as the artwork is, it's unremarkable with only the occasional exception. There are moments in Trail of Shadows that outrank many of the other Star Wars comics, but again, they're the exception, not the norm, and those memorable moments primarily come about as a result of what's in the script. Despite all that, this still lands somewhere in the 3-4-star range. My Star Wars blinders certainly play a part in that, but there is some genuinely good stuff in here that I'd argue is pretty essential to the broader story The High Republic is telling.

Good thing he has Sian with him, who happens to not be a Force user. When Starlight Beacon gets involved, they know the enemy is a serious threat. As a stand alone story, I enjoyed the "whodunit" aspect. It was interesting to get to know Emerick and Sian and I enjoyed seeing a snippet of character development with them. They have potential to make further appearances. This side story is tied into the events of the adult novel The Light of the Jedi and the fall of Starlight Beacon. This graphic novel also takes a bit of a dark twists with its very first images. This is an enjoyable story in of itself with excellent artwork and great tie-ins for those following The High Republic, but also a nice piece to read without any background information too.

    I’d say this is more of a 4.5/5 actually. It was really good. It definitely relies on the fact that you have already read all of the High Republic novels that came out before this started, and I do mean all. I got some light spoilers for the most recent novel that I haven’t read yet. But this is the first comic for this era I’ve read and it’s so nice to get confirmed images to the names I’ve been seeing in the novels. The story is pretty good as it picks up almost exactly where the second adult I’d say this is more of a 4.5/5 actually. It was really good.

The story is pretty good as it picks up almost exactly where the second adult novel of the High Republic ends and goes into the interim moments between the second and third adult books. The two main characters are pretty interesting but I feel like with only 5 issues there wasn’t enough time to flesh out their stories as they kept being shoved into the events of other books or the wider story being told by the HR authors. Overall a very fun and short adventure that gives us good information on a new “weapon” introduced in the second novel. -Tyler.

    Last week I finished the series about the jedi monster hunter (Monster of Temple Peek) and today I finished this one, the series about jedi detectives. I guess we are trying new things with our fav space knights. The art and the story itself were okay, I wasn't really interested in the characters or what was going on. I must admit it probably gets better if you've already read all the books released up to this point, which I haven't, but I can tell many of them are connected or referenced here.

The part I enjoyed the most was the ending, which was mostly action. And for that reason it also felt out of place, a story that started somewhat close to "CSI Coruscant", suddenly became "Nameless, the Eighth Passenger". Which is fine I guess, just a little odd. Anyways, I'd give it a 7.5/10

    Just finished STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC: TRAIL OF SHADOWS and it left me very… meh. Unfortunately, I feel this way about almost anything Daniel José Older writes for Star Wars. His plots are usually too big and scattershot, he focuses far too much on his own characters and not the overall cast at large, doesn’t write characters that aren’t his creations like themselves, and sometimes his stuff comes across more like fanfic than actual in-continuity stories, IMO.

I’m not even sure what the point of this series was. I thought it was supposed to be about Jedi Emerick Caphtor and private investigator Sian Holt trying to figure out what happened to Loden Greatstorm at the end of THE RISING STORM. There’s a lot of jumping around in the story, connecting the dots on stuff that didn’t actually seem all that important to the story, and then dropping what seemed like a possible love interest into the story that seemed very unnecessary. For a 5 issue limited series, I feel there were far too many subplots and if this had been tightened down to strictly the investigation, and one that did seem to have some solid resolution to it, I think this would have been far better. I don’t think anyone other than hardcore fans of The High Republic will find this as necessary reading; the casual reader can easily skip this series and not miss anything from the larger scope of the story.

    Heard so many positive reviews of this comic line. I was worried that the story wasn’t going to live up to the hype. I was not disappointed. As with much of the High Republic this story answers many questions while giving some new pieces to the puzzle that brought new questions. I LOVE the new characters introduced in this story and want more in phase 3 (since phase 2 is going back 150 years). On a side note, this was the first book that I’ve ever requested that my local library purchase. It was Heard so many positive reviews of this comic line.

    I liked that it skipped some banal information gathering and instead had the investigators catch you up on the way to the action. Romantic elements felt appropriate but something about it made me want one more page of panels in the middle to flesh it out. It did leave me excited for more High Republic material.

    Not as bad as the other high republic volumes which is....praise, I guess? it starts off with a noir-ish detective feel that seemed like it was going to be an interesting stylistic change of pace, but it quickly devolved into the same doofy crap as the rest of the line. Wasted Potential, that.

    The premise was good, but the execution...this feels like a shadow of the other events in the galaxy instead of standing on its own. Even the other High Republic comics I don't like at least manage that.
