Book Review: Another brilliant book in the Star Wars retelling.

I was, of course, a bit skeptical when I picked this one. I had enjoyed book one of this series but not book two. So I had lowered my expectations just a bit on this one. I see now I was wrong. This one was entertaining and full of more action.

This book was different from the last. There were no confusing points of view. Told in third person narrative with a dash of humor laced within the pages, it was a fun read and one that was really hard to put down even for a moment. I think I spent an entire night devouring the pages of this book from front to end and I was happy. Really happy with the ending results.

This series took me back to my childhood. I have loved Star Wars since I was a child and I continue to love Star Wars even now. These books have brought back so much nostalgia.

If you are looking for something that draws you back into a "galaxy far, far away..." then these are the books you are definitely looking for!
