Shadow wouldn't have known about it. Many of the main characters like Luke and Han just feel like different people with the same name. Trioculus thinks Vader's glove will allow him to Force Choke, then has things installed so he can make people's brains melt. He stumbled upon some lost city that also happens to be on a moon that has some Jedi or force using history. After the deaths of the two evil Imperial leaders-Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine-a three-eyed tyrant who claimed to be the Emperor's son rose to lead the Empire. The Millennium Falcon began a smooth descent toward the main landing bay of Yavin Four.
It is quite clear that the author doesn't know how the Force works. This article has been rated as Stub-Class on the project's. It's not likely that Kun or Shadow could have sensed the droids. And what the Hell is it with all the environmental lessons the book is so heavy-handed about? They make absolutely no attempt to be canonical, logical, or even coherent, and remain simply an excuse for people to spend their money on things with the Star Wars tattoo on them. The idea that Palpatine had a son, that the Empire went through a succession crisis, is a interesting notion. Getting it wrong torpedoes the whole effort. Why Luke wasn't raised there instead of Tatooine, well, who knows.
He decides to run away on the very day his idol, Luke Skywalker, is strolling around. You simply do not mix reality with fantasy as it ruins the illusion. Because Ken lives there, with a ton of droids to take care of him, he must be really special. I wondered if maybe these were some sort of unauthorized sequels that snuck onto the market somehow. One lightyear, by the way, besides equaling more miles than the authors could even begin to compute, is only a quarter of the distance between us and Alpha Centauri -— it won't even get you one star system away, in other words.
Maybe that is how kids books are written, but I found it to be piss-poor writing. Luke teases Han about filling up his sky house with a wife and kids. The idea of a city where the Jedi went to hide was intriguing. And then the idea that there is an actual government for all of Tatooine? The plot is terrible, as with everything else. This definitely would not make a good movie at all, too much cheese. I seriously cannot make this shit up.
The city never served its purpose though. I think I go the gist though; Trioculus found Dart Vaders glove, but he is fearful of the one who poses a threat to him. I realize that this is a book for children, but come on. But now a new threat awaits the Alliance. As Luke Skywalker knocked on the door of Han Solo's warehouse, a lens popped out of the metal wall, making a curious noise as it examined Luke's face. Leia, an Alliance leader, was a captive of the Empire. One of the more enjoyable aspects of the book is how well it picks up where the last one left off, continuing the basic storylines and character directions intelligently.
. Just once I wish I could hear the bark of a dog, or the meow of cat, instead of the kshhhhh of a mooka. Out of all the books in this not very good series, this was probably one of the worst. Since Disney bought Star Wars and decided to disregard the entire expanded literary universe established by a large amount of authors and comic book artists and various video game designers, I've had a real interest in reading all the 'Legends' of Star Wars. Ken decided to leave with Luke and join the Rebels in their fight leaving the City and his caretakers. The Wookiee turned a repulsorlift control k. Whether your relationship is flourishing or failing, Dr.
On the whole, it was much better than I remember it being, which may say more about my memory of books I read 20 years ago than the book itself, but there it is. Honestly, these fantasy books are murder on me. Then there's the rhyming alien and the guy with the little laser blaster earings. The Archive Building now contains little except average library datafiles, and the datafiles and nav tapes which Ember's old ship Singing Justice brought from the pre-Dark Age galaxy. Meanwhile, Luke is obsessed with finding the Lost City of the Jedi. Although the Order of the Grey has the main temples of Yavin with Ember's permission, they are located hundreds of kilometers from the Lost City and would have no reason to suppose that one little stone ruin is any different from the thousands of others scattered across the planet.
To strengthen his claim to be Emperor, and to unite the Imperial warlords who had been feuding among themselves, Trioculus embarked on a search for the glove. As I said, fortunately Ken and his droids are in it infrequently and more time is spent on Trioculus and his plans to take full command of the Empire. The love story between Princess Leia and Han Solo is really cheezy. The Lost City of the Jedi was my favorite. Many ludicrous things happen in the course of the book, including the fact that Lando remains chief administrator of Cloud City -- because Empire Strikes Back apparently had no consequences whatsoever -- and Han buys a big house there. To our Imperials, who are still being dastardly.
The city was known as merely a Jedi legend by this point. I did enjoy the illustrations, although in black and white I found them very detailed, and helpful in picturing who was who. I'm not sure if I'll try more Star Wars books aimed at children or not. When Luke leaves, a bomb explodes in the cockpit of his ship, placed there by Imperial adgents. I am sure some of these books went over my head and that I would get more out of them at later re-readings, but I do think the authors of these Star Wars stories underestimate the ability of children to read and understand more sophisticated stories. This one is poor story telling from the very start. Luke leaned forward to check the switch.
