This is a great book if you liked the Star Wars movies and wanted to know more about how life as a young Jedi Knight while the Republic is rebuilding after the war with the Emperor. Also a great book for younger readers wanting to get into this Genre.

I really liked this book it had a lot of action, I would know because I am a STAR WARS FREAK. It shocked me when Tenel Ka lost her arm. But, the end got me because I never expected that person to be the culprult.

If you are a YJK fan, than you have to read this book. This book is about Tenel Ka and Jacen Solo's realationship. But whwn Luke Skywalker tells Tenel Ka, Jacen, and their comrades to build lightsabers, Tenel Ka rushes. In a training duel, Jacen accidently cuts through Tenel Ka's hand as her lightsaber blew up. Shocked, Tenel Ka gets rushed off to her father's homeland of Hapes. Jacen and his friends rush to meet with her again. Tenel Ka has a decisison to make, a Jedi, or the Queen of Hapes? As she tries to decide, danger lurkes.

I love the whole Young Jedi Knights series, and other of Kevin J. Anderson's works, but I think this is my favorite. Perhaps because Tenel Ka is the best character of the group. She represents the strength of body, mind, and character that everyone wants to have. It also has a nice, interesting plot and makes for easy reading. If one day you have this book, you're all set.

I loved the book and especialy liked the tension between Tenel Ka and Jacen. The fact that Tenel Ka was from the Hapes Cluster and was the heir to the cluster and didn't tell her freinds it a good plot, but overused. I love that she feels more at home in Dathomir. I would feel the same too.

This was incredible, I read half the book in two hours. You will turn the page endlessly in curousity of what happens next. Finally, a book about the most liked weapon, the Light sabers. Great book, read immediately.

This was an awsome book. It was a very action packed and don't forget a great book! Luke was a bit on the dumb side but it will do. I think that Jacen and Jaina could have had better colored lightsabers.

I thought that Lightsabers was one of the best books in the series. I really, really enjoyed reading it.
