Hrm. I liked this, but definitely not as much as I liked the Leia book. I felt like the beginning dragged and I was super confused about why Luke accepted Farnay’s offer to be his guide and then accepted Sarco’s too. Maybe I missed something. Like the Leia book, this didn’t draw me in the way Aftermath and Lost Stars did.
But I did like it. I’ve always loved Luke, so I liked seeing more of this story, especially his training. I wish the book had had less set up (visiting the city and finding a guide) and more training/exploring in the temple. I liked that part best.
I did think the prologue and epilogue were really interesting and I am curious which of these characters we’ll see in The Force Awakens.
On to my last Force Friday book – Smuggler’s Run, the story of my favorite scoundrel and his Wookiee BFF. Can’t wait!
