OUT NOW IN UK PAPERBACK: 'THE LAST JEDI'


Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff have another enjoyable book added to their STAR WARS roster-THE LAST JEDI- out now in paperback in the UK from ARROW BOOKS. The aftermath of ORDER 66 is the doom-laden setting, as Jedi survivor turned rebel hero Jax Pavan and the Whiplash group continue to be a major thorn in the side of a the newly formed Galactic Empire changing the universe. In service of his new Master, Darth Vader, whom Pavan knows the secret identity of, has already begun his unique and frightening pursuit of Pavan, and things will never be the same again...

It's a likable enough read-the EU fan favourite duo have done their homework, clearly enjoying their characters and situations they've created as they integrate them into George Lucas's already iconic environs and continuity (which remain bigger and better than anything the book authors themselves can come up with). There's murder, betrayal, lightsabers and large-size action amidst some overwritten moments here and there. No classic by any means, THE LAST JEDI, an additional part of the Coruscant Nights series, also works as a respectable stand-alone adventure to be consumed with a nice chocolate egg over the Easter holidays...

AFICIONADO RATING: 3 out of 5
