The last chapter book that the boys and I read together was Star Wars: The Last of the Jedi: The Desperate Mission. It’s a novel for kids, with the story taking place while Obi-Wan is on Tatooine watching over Luke. At this point in time Luke is a baby or toddler and Obi-Wan, advised by Qui-Gon Jinn, is able to leave on another mission. He attempts to track down Ferus Olin, a man who left the Jedi order before he became a full Jedi. Ferus is living on a planet called Bellassa, and leading an underground group that is fighting against the Empire. Obi-Wan’s mission is to find Ferus and escort him to safety. Ferus has a major part to play in the formation of the Rebel Alliance. What exactly he will do, we’re left to guess.
My boys very much enjoyed the book and were caught up in all the action and intrigue. You’ll meet some familiar characters, and some you’ve never heard of if you’ve only watched the Star Wars movies. It’s a fun read-aloud if you have kids who are into Star Wars. We’ve already started the second book. Presumably we’ll find out what happens with this Ferus guy.
