    Hello Everyone! So do we have an official reading order for the High Republic yet?

    Apparently, there isn't supposed to be a reading order, but... LotJ should probably be the first one, and, because how publishing work and stories evolved, my absolute best suggestion is to stick closely to the release order.

    I figured as much, I was just hoping to see if they had a plan out for all the releases since I have heard that there could be spoilers in the quicker reads versus the novels.

    Hoping that the Gray novel doesn't require LOTJ. I'd imagine it wouldn't, since it's not like they're listed as part of a series.

    Everything is intertwined, from what I have gathered.

    Timeline anyone? Star Wars Explained's spoiler free review of Into the Dark states, you don't have to read LOTJ to read Gray's novel ( 3rd book in this series).

    If I remember correctly, the Luminous crew has said that the ideal reading order if reading it all would be in release order, I guess with how things are revealed.

    I don't know if reading in the release order is the best actually. I know that's what they said but before reading into the dark I had read several issues of the comics as they were out and was a bit disapointed I knew a bit of the Drenghir and didn't get to discover them along with the characters in the book. But at the same time it was nice to have a picture in my head to visualise them.

    Also I have a feeling it could be interresting to read both Into the Dark and A test of courage before LOTJ, in order to be in the mystery with the characters and then understand it all in the grand arch that is LOTJ. I don't know if anyone has done it this way?
