Publisher's Summary

After the events of The High Republic: Convergence, the Jedi travel to Jedha in this all-new Star Wars audiobook original.

Jedha. The worn streets of this ancient world serve as a confluence for the galaxy. Visited by all, yet owned by none. Here, the Jedi are but one creed among many worshipping and studying the Force. From the Guardians of the Whills to the Path of the Open Hand, countless beings come to learn, and to share, in peace.

As all of Jedha prepares for its Festival of Balance, the galaxy still reels from the violence on Eiram and E’ronoh. But after foiling a plot to escalate the war between the two planets, the Jedi believe that a lasting peace may be within reach. Master Creighton Sun and Jedi Knight Aida Forte arrive on Jedha with delegations from both planets to formally end the “Forever War.” The Jedi hope that the harmony of Jedha’s many factions, along with the signing of a peace treaty, will create a symbol to the rest of the galaxy of what can be accomplished through unity.

But not all are happy with the Jedi’s involvement or ready to concern themselves with peace. Rumors begin to swirl that the Jedi bring war in their wake. The distrust and anger that for so long fueled the Forever War now threaten to corrupt the communities of Jedha. When violence breaks out on the sacred moon, the war that was meant to end on Jedha may soon engulf the entire world.

An epic audio adventure!

I found THE BATTLE OF JEDHA to be entertaining as all get-out. Can’t wait for more audio escapades from Phase Two of the High Republic Era. Kudos to George Mann, as well as the cast and crew for an epic in the spirit of classic Star Wars. Recommended.

Falls short of the Norm.

This story follows the same narrative as the rest of the story arc, but falls short of the usual manorisms of the jedi. It also fails when describing action sequences filling them with grunting sounds and sound effects. Some of the jedi in the story were already established as stoic in earlier stories, become somewhat bubbly. I am still listening, so I may come to a different conclusion, but as it is now, I am not satisfied.

A Phase 2 Must Listen

Fantastic audio drama to give more depth to phase 2. Performances were stunning, especially January Lavoy as The Mother.

Positively stunning 🤩

One of the greatest audiobooks I’ve ever listened to! I can totally see myself listening to this again in the future. It’s definitely worth adding to your audibles library 📚😃🙏🏽

Pleasantly surprised!

I’m really not into audiobooks or dramas so much but the script for this doesn’t come out until February so I gave this a go! It was really good. I loved the extra details it provides to this wave. The actors did a great job. My one issue was two characters named Creighton and Kraydon being pronounced the same which was a bit confusing at first.

Would Have Been Better as a Novel

I suppose it’s a little bit of a biased opinion. This was my first audio book and I’m certain in saying that I do not care for them.

The story was really good as expected. The voices were kind of cheesy, which occasionally took me out of it a bit. It also took more than half of the audio book for me to be able to put the voices to the characters they were representing, so I found myself having to go back a lot to figure out what was going on with who. I’m definitely more of a visual person than and audible one when it comes to taking in information, so that’s just a subjective issue I encountered.

I definitely would have preferred this as a novel, but it is a must to get through if you closely follow the series and want all of the plot to come together.

A Must Listen

Everything in phase 2 crashes together in this audio drama. Keth from the short stories, Silandro Sho from the middle grade novel, Creighton Sun from Convergence, and Marda Ro and the Path of the Open from Path of Deceit. The comics have really set the stage for how we find Jedha in this story, and all lot points come to a head here. It is action-packed, mysterious, and heart wrenching.

An Amazing Entry

This story was an excellent piece of bridging media for Star Wars The High Republic Phase 2, and sets up so much to come. The cast is large but well defined and positioned for much of the story, and to speak any more would give away too much.
