The High Republic continues! James and I had the chance to talk about the latest entry, Justina Ireland’s Out of the Shadows! The ensemble of Sylvestri Yarrow, Vernestra Rwoh, and Jordanna Sparkburn navigate the choppy waters of aristocracy and politics while the galaxy nervously ponders what the Nihil will do next.
