Review: Race to Crashpoint Tower by Daniel Jose' Older






This story takes place in the midst of the events of The Rising Storm. We first meet Ram in an encounter with  Ty Yorrick and this story gives us the start of Ram's journey. I love everything about this story! Though it is aimed towards younger readers there is no watering down of the danger or threats Ram faces as he leaves his comfort zone to help save his city. 

Ram's companions for this journey are Lula and Zeen from the High Republic Adventures. Older does an amazing job giving us insight into Lula and Ram's internal thoughts as they confront their greatest fears in the face of the Nihil and another deadly force. A fantastic read with hints in the finale that we may be seeing Ram again soon!
