Star Wars: Heir to the Jedi by Kevin Hearne - Paul's Pre-Reading

Title: Star Wars: Heir to the Jedi

Author: Kevin Hearne

Upcoming Release Date: March 3, 2015

Synopsis: The Galactic Civil War rages on after the destruction of the Death Star and Luke Skywalker struggles to learn more about the Force without the aid of Obi-Wan Kenobi – or indeed without any aid at all. But the few memories he has of Obi-Wan’s instruction point the way to a stronger control of the Force, and he is encouraged to pursue it by a new friend in the Alliance. When Luke, R2-D2 and his new ally are tasked with liberating a valuable asset from the Empire and delivering her to a safe planet where she can aid the Alliance, their journey across the galaxy is fraught with peril – and opportunities for Luke to discover the mysteries of the Force.


Why?: This is yet another book in the new Star Wars canon. It was originally part of a trilogy entitled Empire and Rebellion. The two books already released in the trilogy became a duology. Each book was supposed to follow one of the main three characters from the original trilogy shortly after the events of A New Hope. I wonder how much changed within this book. This book follows Luke as he tries to discover what it means to be a jedi. 

Expectations: I'm looking forward to this first person point of view from Luke. There have been only a handful of Star Wars books from this perspective. I'm interested to see what it is like inside of Luke Skywalker's head.   

Judging a book by its cover: The cover, to me, looks like a pretty generic Star Wars book. Luke on the cover reminds me of him from Return of the Jedi
