Review

Ok… this is one-of my favorite Star Wars books (I do have a lot of favorite books… I’m sorry about that). It’s the telling of the first Jedi, how they trained, lived, and defeated all the Sith (I know it sounds a little weird… but it is such a good book!!!!)

The book is really good, but there are some weird parts in it that I should explain. The main character in the book, Lanoree Brock, has a gift that involves working with flesh and blood and making it grow or something REALLY weird. It can be a little creepy, but I actually found it interesting (this is coming from the girl who freaks-out when she is bleeding). It is gross, but its not voodoo or magic… its just normal Star Wars with a really cool (slightly terrifying) twist.

Over all, a really good Star Wars book. Has some blood and stuff in it, sooooooo… you shouldn’t read this book if you are a younger kid (like 12 and under… I really don’t know what you read, so go ask your parents or something). But if you read and like Star Wars books, this one is a great choice.

Pros

  • Star Wars!!!!!!!
  • A story of one-of the first Jedi… AWESOME RIGHT!?!

Cons

  • Violence… but when does a Star Wars book not have violence…
  • Can get a little weird and confusing at times

On the planet Tython, the ancient Je’daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force—and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je’daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy.

Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je’daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency. The leader of a fanatical cult, obsessed with traveling beyond the reaches of known space, is bent on opening a cosmic gateway using dreaded dark matter as the key—risking a cataclysmic reaction that will consume the entire star system. But more shocking to Lanoree than even the prospect of total galactic annihilation, is the decision of her Je’daii Masters to task her with the mission of preventing it. Until a staggering revelation makes clear why she was chosen: The brilliant, dangerous madman she must track down and stop at any cost is the brother whose death she has long grieved—and whose life she must now fear.
