Review

So, I read this book a long time a ago (in a galaxy far away) and I was thrilled that there was a whole Star Wars series that ran AFTER THE MOVIES!!!

I love Star Wars, and I think these are great books for young adults, but not so much for kids 12 and under. The books are usually clean with little to no: cursing, ‘Bleh!’, or basically anything; but that doesn’t mean there not violent. Star Wars is known to have lightsabers and blasters, and may I just say, what follows those weapons is usually blood and gross stuff. I have read almost all of the Star Wars books, but even I skipped a series because there was way to much violence for me. But that doesn’t mean it is a bad series, in fact I think this series is great for young Christian guys (and girls, but I have yet to meet a girl my age who reads these books, besides me…) to read. Yeah, the books don’t talk about God or Christianity, but it also doesn’t talk about anything inappropriate either.

Over all, I seriously suggest these books to you (If you are 12 and up); this is the book right after the movies but there are also books before the movies and before Clone Wars too. I have read almost all of them, and the only books that are best to avoid is some of the newer books. (I suggest reading the books that have Legends on the top of them.)

Hope my review was helpful! – The Young Llama Reader.

Pros

  • The book right after ‘Return of the Jedi’
  • Very enjoyable

Cons

  • Not a kids book
  • Very violent

No sooner has Darth Vader’s funeral pyre burned to ashes on Endor than the Alliance intercepts a call for help from a far-flung Imperial outpost. Bakura is on the edge of known space and the first to meet the Ssi-ruuk, cold-blooded reptilian invaders who, once allied with the now dead Emperor, are approaching Imperial space with only one goal; total domination. Princess Leia sees the mission as an opportunity to achieve a diplomatic victory for the Alliance. But it assumes even greater importance when a vision of Obi-Wan Kenobi appears to Luke Skywalker with the message that he must go to Bakura-or risk losing everything the Rebels have fought so desperately to achieve.
