I, for one, love the six Star Wars movies, and I am really excited about the new ones yet to come from Disney. That’s why, while at the Mission Viejo Library, I found a whole new Star Wars book series: The Last of the Jedi.
This series takes place in between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, which is my favorite, and Episode IV: A New Hope. Now, I am not going to spoil anything too much about the two movies or the book series, but I will start off my “summary” by saying this: it is awesome!
As of right now I am on book 7 out of 10 known books, there might be more, and I love the storyline! It is about Ferus Olin who is trying to get the Jedi back together. He is successful at times, and others not so much, so it really keeps the reader on edge of what will happen next.
Also, familiar characters are in these books such as Darth Vader, Obi Wan Kenobi, Emperor Palpatine, and Grand Moff Tarkin. The author, Jude Watson, has taken many small details of the Star Wars films and put hints of them throughout the series, so if you want to read this series, I suggest watching the movies first. Although the books explain things well, you won’t get a single word of it until you see the movies.
If anyone has seen the movies and loved them like me, hopefully all of you, or read the series, then leave a comment so that I can see other thoughts about the books!
