Older is writing a middle grade book, Race to Crashpoint Tower. It focuses on the Republic Fair and a new mechanic Jedi, Ram Jamoram, wants to hide in his garage. Crashpoint also contains new creatures, the Bonbraks, who hang out with Ram in his shop, and it’s a good thing because we needed some cuteness to balance out the Nihl and the Drengir! The story follows Lula Talisola (from Older’s High Republic Adventures from IDW) who hangs out with Vernestra Rwoh (from A Test of Courage). Plus a new droid! Who doesn’t love a new droid?

Sure enough, as Ram races to warn the Jedi, the dreaded Nihil unleash a surprise attack! It's up to Ram to face down the enemy at Crashpoint Tower and send a call for help to the Republic. Luckily, he's about to get some assistance from unexpected new friends…
