A very good book, worth 4 1/2 stars
Though I had read the intire Young Jedi Knights series (except the final trilogy) several times, I was surprised to note as I started reading it once again that this was the only one so far that I remembered virtually nothing about. In it, Jacen and Jaina's old friend Lusa comes to the Jedi Academy desperatly seeking refuge from the Diversity Aliance, an all alien political movement bent on destroying all humans, that she was once a part of. Meanwhile, everyone continues to search for Bornan Thul who is desperately trying to evade capture from the Diversity Aliance and keep from them the information he is protecting, because if they get ahold of it, it could mean the end of humankind... Meanwhile, Raynar gets a crush on Lusa and it moves him to do something for his family while his father (Bornan Thul) is missing. He decides to go to Mechis 3 and take care of his uncles droid operation since he too seems to be missing. As you can probably guess, everyone goes with him and discovers a startling truth. In general, this was a worthy book to continue this fascinating saga that tells of the next generation of Star Wars heroes, though not the best in the series. For one thing I wish they would include Anakin more. He is my favorite of the Solo children (with Jaina as a close second) and it's not as it there is even a big age difference, he is only a year and 1/2 younger than Jacen and Jaina. Another thing that bothers me is that who exactly gave all the kids permision fly around the galaxy by themselves? Just because Tenel Ka has her own ship somehow gives EVERYONE the freedom to go where they please. This does not sound like something that protective parents like Han and Leia would allow. I myself am fifteen, the same age as the kids in this series, and I am not allowed to do these things. Oh well, it is just a book. Oh, and one more thing, I would not advise reading this book before the others in the series, because it will make absolutely no sense on it's own.
I've been reading the Young Jedi Knights series from Book One and have always been looking for the next one to come out! I absolutely love how the characters have really come into their own and seem nearly real - almost like you know them! This book was not the best on I've read in the series, but it was good and I can't wait to grab the next one!
it was a little confusing but great anyway
great book!my favorite part is when Em Teedee gets his own repulsor unit.And Zekk completes his first official bounty hunter mission.BUY IT NOW!!!
