Tempest Runner Synopsis and Cover
The Star Wars galaxy will soon know the terror of Lourna Dee — and you can get a sneak peek.
StarWars.com is thrilled to reveal the cover of Star Wars: The High Republic: Tempest Runner, the upcoming audio original from writer Cavan Scott, featuring the villainous Lourna Dee of the Nihil.
Tempest Runner finds Dee a captive of the Jedi, yet determined to have her revenge. You can read the official plot synopsis below:
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?
Star Wars: The High Republic: Tempest Runner arrives August 31 and is available for pre-order now.
