"Lightsabers", the fourth book of the YJK series, is one of my favorites! It begins where Luke Skywalker makes a hard decision. He decides to train Jacen, Jaina, Lowie, and Tenel Ka to use lightsabers. All four begin their work in constructing their weapons. But Tenel Ka, who relies more on her physical strength than in using the Force, isn't patient enough to make her lightsaber correctly. During a sparring practice with Jacen, to the shock of everyone, her lightsaber explodes and Jacen, caught off guard, (I won't give you the whole details), severes her left arm. Feeling terrible and not wanting to have pity from her friends, Tenel Ka leaves for the Royal Court of Hapes, where her grandmother awaits. But her friends go to her and try to comfort her. Tenel Ka doesn't know how to deal with the situation. With so many mixed emotions, she doesn't know whether she wants to continue her training at the Jedi Academy. As she sorts through her feelings, she and her friends must deal with an assassin whose prime target is... her grandmother, the Matriarch of the Royal Hapan Cluster!
I must say that I just love the Young Jedi Knights! I really like all Star Wars books but this series one of my favorites for the reasons that, 1) the characters are very interesting and close to my age, 2) superbly and well written, and 3) all books are exciting and full of adventure.Read more ›
And then there's Jaina. She looks like a ripped-off younger version of her father. The fact she hangs out with a big hairy dude and fixes stuff tells it all. Lowie's the only cool one. WOOKIEES RULE! Tenel Ka seems abit arrogant and snobby for my liking. Besides, talk about stupid! She smashes her tiara that costs a bajillion credits , just because she's soooooo proud of her culture. Just buy some crystals and get over it! Jacen's the worst of all. His famed line, "Blaster Bolts!" is just pathetic. He sounds like a superhero sidekick in a 50's cartoon. Not only are new lines getting to me, but lame uses for once-unlame lines such as Jaina saying, "They'd be crazy to follow us, wouldn't they?" A line her father said when Leia dissaproved of going into an Astroid field, except this time it's a SEAWEED field. Oh how grand. Now that I'm done complaining, I'd like to say it was a cool book, and nonetheless action packed. I like the part when they're making their lightsabers and when Zekk battles Vilas. It's a great book, the title made me want to read it it the first place, and I want to read the rest of the series. I recommend that you to get it and you won't regret you spent money on it.
