The High Republic: A Test of Courage is a canon junior novel written by Justina Ireland. It is part of the Star Wars: The High Republic publishing campaign, and it was published on January 5, 2021 by Disney–Lucasfilm Press.

The story is set two centuries before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, and it follows teenage Jedi Vernestra Rwoh and a young, ragtag group as they are stranded on a jungle moon after the Great Disaster.

Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

Long before the Clone Wars, the Empire, or the First Order, the Jedi lit the way for the galaxy in a golden age known as the High Republic!

Vernestra Rwoh has just become a Jedi Knight at age fifteen, but her first real assignment feels an awful lot like babysitting. She's been charged with supervising eleven-year old aspiring inventor Avon Starros on a cruiser headed to the dedication of a wondrous new space station called Starlight Beacon.

But soon into their journey, bombs go off aboard the cruiser. While the adult Jedi try to save the ship, Vernestra, Avon, Avon's droid J-6, a Jedi Padawan, and an ambassador's son make it to an escape shuttle, but communications are out and supplies are low. They decide to land on a nearby moon, which offers shelter but not much more. And unbeknownst to them, danger lurks in the forest?

Continuity[edit | edit source]

Imri Cantaros' homeworld is first stated to be Genetia, and then Hynestia later on. Justina Ireland explained in a tweet that his parents may have hailed from different planets.[3]

  2. SWYTlogo.png Star Wars: The High Republic | Announcement Trailer on the official Star Wars YouTube channel (backup link) states that the events of Star Wars: The High Republic, which include the events of The High Republic: A Test of Courage, take place two-hundred years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace to 32 BBY, it can be deduced that the events of The High Republic: A Test of Courage take place around 232 BBY.
