Han Solo â€“ Captain of the Millenium Falcon
Leia Organa Solo â€“ Jedi Knight
Luke Skywalker â€“ Jedi Grand Master
Ben Skywalker â€“ Jedi
Vestara Khai â€“ Sith
Luke Skywalker continues his exile from the New Republic. This time around, He, Ben, and the Solos end up on Endor. Heâ€™s tracking Vestara Khai, the Sith he previously encountered. Along the way they help join two tribes of Dathomiri, and discover whether Vestara has a hidden agenda.
Iâ€™m not totally sure how I felt about this book. It seems that Luke and Ben have now abruptly ended their search for why Darth Caedus came to be. While I liked seeing Dathomiri life, Iâ€™d like to have seen a little more of the Nightsisters. There were some interesting battles in this. One in particular involved a native Dathomri life form. Iâ€™m not 100% certain though that it really advanced the story much. Being the fourth book in the series, I expected it to grab me a lot more than it did. There are times where I canâ€™t put a Star Wars book down. That didnâ€™t occur in this case. Iâ€™d recommend it if youâ€™re following this series. Itâ€™s definitely not a stand-alone novel. I keep holding out hope that the broader picture/storyline will impress me a lot more. So far, Iâ€™ve just had lukewarm feelings towards it. Iâ€™d say itâ€™s definitely only for the Star Wars fan, and probably not the general public.
I do look forward to the next one though, because at some point, Iâ€™m thinking, all evil is going to be unleashed. When that happens, I think Iâ€™ll begin enjoying the story a lot more.
