We also read Death on Naboo, another novel in the Star Wars: The Last of the Jedi series that we thoroughly enjoyed!
Ferus is now in prison, slowly wasting away, but still trying to plan his escape. He learns that a former acquaintance of his, Clive, is also imprisoned and has been planning an escape for some time. Together the two of them make a last-ditch effort to gain their freedom. Meanwhile, Ferus’ accomplices are also planning to break him out of prison. Their escape and rescue plans happen to overlap and they accidentally meet up and are able to work together to escape.
Naboo, Padmé’s homeworld is in the Empire’s sights as a world to be taken over. Against the rules of the Senate, the Empire has been stocking weapons in one of Naboo’s main hangars. Ferus travels to Naboo to keep Malorum from finding out the secret that he so desperately seeks. He wants to destroy Darth Vader with it, but Obi-Wan warned Ferus that if that is allowed to happen, the future of the galaxy would be in great peril. Malorum must be stopped!
Malorum makes it to Naboo and coerces the secret of Padmé’s babies from her grandmother. Because of a staged power-outage he isn’t able to transmit the information and must carry it himself. During the staged accidental explosion of the hangar (by Ferus’ accomplices and Naboo’s forces), Ferus confronts Malorum and the two duel. Ferus is the better opponent and defeats Malorum, whose secret goes to the grave with him.
We very highly recommend the books in this series! They rock!
