This, the third of six Junior Jedi Knights books, closes out the story arc set in motion in the first book, namely, that of the mysterious golden globe discovered in a cave on the planet Yavin 4, where new recruit to the Jedi Academy, Anakin Skywalker, is learning the ways of the Force. For its intended age level (juvenile) I thought it was a fun story. Each of the three so far have been short, easy to read, but also providing some additional character development for Anakin and precious few sup...more
Anakin and Tahiri attempt to survive the desert of Tatooine. This was always my favorite of the Junior Jedi Knight books. It's a classic survival story, but beyond that, we get to learn a lot about Tahiri's own history, and also get to learn a lot about the Sand People. Incidentally, reading this book is what made me really horrified when Anakin Skywalker went and killed all those Sand People in the movie. Really, really horrified.
Hayden loves listening to these stories each night before bed, but I can hardly stomach them! Oh well, I love to make him happy. And it's great to test his listening comprehension and see him so engaged in a story. He wants to read the whole series. He also wants to be a Jedi when he grows up.

About the same quality as the previous book, this one wraps up the first story arc. Overall it's not been a hugely interesting story in comparison to many of the others in the Star Wars universe, probably in large part because an 11 year old can't face threats that are all that powerful.

I was born on the east coast and went to Cornell University. After college I worked as a writer for Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus. It was a fun first job and I learned how to write quickly, and also that when elephants sneeze on you it's very (VERY) messy. After a year in the circus, I moved out west. I lived in Aspen, Colorado where I skied as much as possible and worked as a waitress...more
