The Rundown: Luke and the others are introduced to a lost colony and a local legend.
After surrendering their weapons, Luke, Leia and the others are introduced to the de facto leader of the Kezarat colony. After learning about their history, how they made it to no-space and their survival against the Nihil, they are separated and told that they might be released after they are interrogated.
As the group is separated into pairs, Lando and Holdo get closer, Leia worries about Luke and Chewie makes a discovery that might be the key to freeing everyone.
The Story: An entertaining story with some great character development and a nice connection to the High Republic era. I continue to enjoy how Soule and others are connecting the worlds and history of the Star Wars universe and this story has great introspective moments for each character. I like the tension in the story as well and look forward to seeing what happens next.
The Art: Genolet delivers some great art in the issue. The visuals are fun and thrilling with some great visual moments of tension.
