penultimate volume of the Last of the Jedi
series follows Ferus Olin to Alderaan where he discovers Leia, not
knowing her true identity. Meanwhile, his companions fight to
uncover mysteries on Coruscant.
"The story telling here is of a
very similar quality to the previous books, with the constant
interweaving of plots and characters creating a web of intrigue.
Alderaan makes a great setting; the description of the idyllic
scenery and the peaceful, near-utopian society are excellent. It is
also great to catch a glimpse of Leia as a child, although it is a
touch strange trying to relate the toddler here to the feisty young
woman who insulted Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin in the same
"For me, though, the best part of this book is seeing a
much-loathed character finally receive their comeuppance. It has
been far too long coming, but a certain scientist who has featured
in all three of Watson's major series gets what's coming to her.
"Looking forward now to the conclusion of the series."
