Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date

6 hours 5 minutes
In this Star Wars audio original, delve into the cutthroat world of one of the High Republic’s greatest foes, the merciless Lourna Dee.
The Nihil storm has raged through the galaxy, leaving chaos and grief in its wake. Few of its raiders are as vicious as the Tempest Runner Lourna Dee. She stays one step ahead of the Jedi Order at the helm of a vessel named after one of the deadliest monsters in the galaxy: the Lourna Dee. But no one can outrun the defenders of the High Republic forever.
After the defeat of her crew, Lourna falls into the hands of the Jedi--but not before she hides her identity, becoming just another Nihil convict. Her captors fail to understand the beast they have cornered. Just like every fool she’s ever buried, their first mistake was keeping her alive. 
Lourna is determined to make underestimating her their last.
Locked onto a Republic correctional ship, she's dragged across the galaxy to repair the very damage she and her fellow Tempest Runners inflicted on it. But as Lourna plans her glorious escape, she makes alliances that grow dangerously close to friendships. Outside the Nihil—separated from her infamous ship, her terrifying arsenal, and her feared name—Lourna must carve her own path. But will it lead to redemption? Or will she emerge as a deadlier threat than ever before?

Good story. Jumps around a lot which can be slightly confusing while getting used to all of the voices and who they are. Definitely worth the listen if you are enjoying The High Republic series!

I love it when Star Wars stories focus on the villains and explore more of their motivations and what makes them compelling characters to root for (or against). Tempest Runner does just that, building on Scott's previous work with the character in The Rising Storm. It takes time to flesh out this era of the Star Wars timeline a lot more, making the universe feel lived in and the characters feel real. It's a great listen and shouldn't be skipped over by High Republic fans. The narration and voice work is stellar, and the sound effects and music add an emersion that separates these audio dramas from traditional audiobooks.
