The Rundown: Keeve and her fellow Jedi battle strange forces on an alien planet.

Keeve Trennis and Lourna Dee find themselves facing off against a highly skilled yet feral Sskeer. At the same time, Terec and Ceret and the surviving Jedi they found face a dangerous unseen Jedi hunter that has learned to manipulate their surroundings to show them their darkest fears.

As Keeve attempts to reach her former master, the twins fight for control of their minds as they face a dangerous threat and a mysterious entity tracking them.

The Story: Scott continues to craft some fun and entertaining stories for the High Republic era. The story has some great moments that showcase the Jedi and their struggle in an interesting way. There is some great action in the story along with suspense that keeps me intrigued and engaged with this series.

The Art: Anindito and Cresta deliver fantastic art in the issue. The action is visually thrilling and the character designs are great. I also really enjoyed the dark tone of the art.
