"Obi-Wan Kenobi has returned to his self-imposed exile on Tatooine, leaving Ferus Olin as the man who will gather the last of the Jedi and form a resistance movement against the Empire.
Ferus has tracked a Jedi to the underbelly of Coruscant, infiltrating the Jedi Temple and seeking out Dexter Jettster, who has a pleasant enough little cameo.
This series, more than the previous young readers' series, is very much a set of interconnected books that tell one over-arching story. Whilst
Jedi Apprentice and Jedi Quest had story arcs that lasted a couple of books, they were largely episodic. Not so
Last of the Jedi. It is already quite apparent that this series tells a larger story. Each book has thus far continued exactly where its predecessor left off, giving the series a sense of depth.
As the story is progressing, the characters are becoming more rounded - particularly Trever, whose irreverent flippancy and witty quips are entertaining and refreshing. Ferus is growing more, too, settling into his new role and the altered character (which is quite a bit different to the
Jedi Quest persona, but with the same core traits).
Vader, on the other hand, wasn't handled as well as I'd expected. The Sith Lord may be relatively new to the role, but I can't quite picture the Emperor's enforcer having an argument with a lackey, albeit an Inquisitor.
A little meandering a times, this series always leaves you wanting more. Hopefully it can keep this up and build upon it until the end."
