    Figured this would be a good place to share this since it's not in the main HR thread

    This looks good to me. Are we thinking this is gonna be the first major featuring of Stellan Gios? I know he's going to show up here and there but I can't recall anything else being teased where he plays a big part.

    Awesome! Is this just a single volume or multiple volumes?

    Cover suggests a series.

    He's also front and center on the cover of The Rising Storm, the next "main" novel, so I reckon he'll play a big part there. That comes out a few weeks after this does, though.

    I am loving these designs and art

    ....except for how the main character stores her lightsabers. Seems...very awkward.

    It's typical sword hip placement, just times two- grabs the left one with here right hand and vice versa.

    Well yes, but that case there is a physical blade weighting everything in place. As these are lightsabers and only the handle is physical, I am not sure how they are hanging like that - maybe the handguard clips to the belt?

    ...Plus, it looks like if they got remotely turned on the blades would go right through her legs. I mean, not something remotely likely to happen I know, but it would make me nervous if I was her.

    I do want to emphasize it is small quibble though.

    Hey, everyone. After a long time being stuck in DRL, I'm finally making my way back to the boards here. I see this order on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. At the same time on the Wook, there's this:

    Star Wars: The High Republic – The Edge of Balance/Guardian of the Whills

    It's scheduled to be released on August 14. Is it the same thing?

    No. I think that site has combined two separate items, as a GotW manga is due at the same time.
