    "My son is a big Star Wars book reader and he said this book was a real nail-biter. It looks like the reviews for this one fit the bill. The only thing I couldn't find was what number this was in the series."

    "I totally agree this is the best star wars series. This book just draws you into a whole new world and there's just this realization of understanding the book gives you, it's amazing. The other books are just not like this and I heard that some many times I had to get it for myself and it was true."

    "I had never tried out a Star Wars novel, so I thought I'd give an "in-between" story a shot. I was pleasantly surprised by this; it was written pretty well, though a bit more basic than I normally like. Good read though, and I might try another."

    "I recently went a Star Wars binge and watched every one of the movies. After seeing them all, I am ready to admit this one was my absolute favorite. The fight scenes are great. The graphics are wonderful given the year the movie was made. Most importantly, the plot was incredibly! It leaves so exited to watch the next one. Star Wars is must watch and this was the best of them all."

    "I've said for years that they need to start making Star Wars movies from the myriad novels that exist. I've been reading these for years and most of them would make great movies. Heir to the Jedi is a great movie and would bring Luke Skywalker to front and center again. He's a beloved character after all and this novel does him a great service."

I really loved the characters and I think I enjoyed it more because it is a series of shorter tales and that kept my interest. I think everyone will enjoy this book."
