While the Great Hyperspace Disaster is occurring, and the Nihil raiders emerge, Padawan Reath Silas and his fellow Jedi companions are forced to dock on what appears to be an abandoned space station. Crowded with refugees waiting for the all clear, strange occurrences around the station suggest that it may not be as abandoned as previously believed. This is the first young adult novel of the High Republic era, and the way Claudia Gray ties her story to the events of Light of the Jedi truly captures just what makes the High Republic special. While the adult novel introduced one threat with the Nihil, Into the Dark reveals another, the drengir, who will prove to be just as dangerous for the galaxy.
