Leia and Han's twins are studying at Luke's Jedi Academy on Yavin 4. They make new friends - and discover old enemies.This was a light, quick read. The characters are surprisingly well-drawn and the plot is straightforward enough that it doesn't hinder that, nor is it bogged down by how many main characters there are. Everything is a bit too pat at the end, but honestly, one only expects so much from tie-in novels. The story is fun, the movie characters are recognizable, everything seems to fit the universe. I won't read it again, but it was a pleasant way to spend an evening.

Genre: Science FictionCritique of Genre: This is a good example of science fiction because it is about this other world of people and creatures fighting against each other with a power known as the "force." They use weapons called lightsabers which can cut through anything like a hot knife through butter. It is full of action packed adventures of a twin brother and sister learning how to use the power of the force and being chased by the evil villains in the mean time. Setting: This book is set on a planet not too different from ours, but in an entirely different galaxy. What makes this setting so good is that there are names for all of the different planets and you get good descriptions of what it looks like and what kinds of creatures reside there. It is essential to know a bit about where the adventures are taking place because all of the planets are so different from each other that you would get lost if you has one set picture in your mind of where they are.

This story continues after the original events of Star Wars. It takes place in the lower levels of Corusant. Jacen, Jania, Tenal Ka, Zekk, and Lowie are all friends who met on Corusant. Zekk is pulled to become a dark jedi. All of his friends try to save him from going to the dark side. The story is full of action and adventure. I like the continuing story line because it gives you full details of the story. You must read this book! If you like Star Wars you¿ll love the continuing story. This book is good for all age groups from 9 years old to .

Although this book and the ones that follow it are aimed towards young adults, they are still enjoyable to the older readers. I just wish they would write these books faster since I can blow through one in a day. If you enjoy the Star Wars line of books, these should be on your summer reading list...
