Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

In this Star Wars audio original, delve into the cutthroat world of one of the High Republic's greatest foes, the merciless Lourna Dee.

The Nihil storm has raged through the galaxy, leaving chaos and grief in its wake. Few of its raiders are as vicious as the Tempest Runner Lourna Dee. She stays one step ahead of the Jedi Order at the helm of a vessel named after one of the deadliest monsters in the galaxy: the Lourna Dee. But no one can outrun the defenders of the High Republic forever.

After the defeat of her crew, Lourna falls into the hands of the Jedi - but not before she hides her identity, becoming just another Nihil convict. Her captors fail to understand the beast they have cornered. Just like every fool she's ever buried, their first mistake was keeping her alive.

Lourna is determined to make underestimating her their last.

Locked onto a Republic correctional ship, she's dragged across the galaxy to repair the very damage she and her fellow Tempest Runners inflicted on it. But as Lourna plans her glorious escape, she makes alliances that grow dangerously close to friendships. Outside the Nihil - separated from her infamous ship, her terrifying arsenal, and her feared name - Lourna must carve her own path. But will it lead to redemption? Or will she emerge as a deadlier threat than ever before?

Wow

4.5 Stars

Wow... I loved the performance. I felt like this was a lot like a character study of the Nihil. For Lourna Dee, I really felt her emotion in her words. Her hopelessness was palpable. However, like many of the other Star Wars audio dramas, there seemed to be a bad lack of flow at the beginning of the narrative, which really frustrates me. In saying that, the performance was amazing.

Fun seeing Lournas and the Nihil's origins

The story did do a few predictable thing now that Lourna Dee is the protagonist and not the antagonist, but it worked pretty good and I never really felt bored during the story.
Great perfromances all arounds, but some of the supporting cast were hard to distinguish.
Definetely recommend this for people that want to see the continuation of Pan Eytas and Lourna Dees story after The Rising Storm.

It was worth the Journey

Having listened to all of the High Republic books, I would say this stands out as one of the best. It was worth the journey to get to this point. It's definitely made Lourna Dee one of my favourite characters. To discover her story and what made her. Great cast too.

This is a fantastic story of Lorna Dee,s background+, and rise yhrpihj the Nihil,

The team behind this production are fantastic! Great sound effects, a superb cast include Marc Thompson, January Levoy and Jonathan Davis bring this whole story to life%
