5.0 out of 5 stars My personal favorite of the YJK series! Feb. 13 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Written by the terrific husband and wife team, Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta, the Star Wars Young Jedi Knights series are not to be missed! These series of books center on the young twins of Han Solo and Lei Organa, Jacen and Jacen, and their friends, Lowbacca and Tenel Ka, as they journey on the road to becoming Jedi Knights.
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite books in the series Dec 26 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When I read this book for the first time, I literaly could not put it down. Since then I have read it and the rest of the series many times over, and this book never loses it's flavor. The discriptions and characters were so vivid that I could see everything that was happening, and it felt almost as if I was there. Anyway, in this book, Luke decides Jacen, Jaina, Tenel Ka, and Lowie are now ready to build their lightsabers. The story goes into great but not tedious details as to how lightsabers work, which is something I have always wondered about. So anyway, Jacen, Jaina, and Lowie all build their lightsabers slowly and carefully like they are supposed to, but Tenel Ka rushes through hers so she can be the first one to finish, and then when she and Jacen spar, something terrible happens.... Part of why I loved this book in particular was that it had a lot of character development without compromising action, most especially in Tenel Ka who is the main focus of this story. I greatly enjoyed this, because Tenel Ka is definitly my favorite character in the series, because she is so strong and tough and doesn't let anything stop her, not even a crippling accident, and of course because she is a warrior princess. This book would be best if read after the previous three books in the series, though it can be understood on it's own too. The reading level of this series is not very high, just high enough to be above the 9-12 age range. Any Star Wars fan over the age of ten would probably like this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but predictable in some parts May 1 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a good book, I admit. But what's up with Tenel Ka losing her arm? Is this supposed to have an all-oppurtunist theme? Next, Jacen's gonna be in a wheel chair, and Jaina will have Lando's skin color or something. And the duel between Jacen and Tenel Ka is abit too predictable. Not only does it make the characters look excessively proud; fencing with their left hands, bu I'm suprised Tenel Ka isn't wearing a black mask and Jacen isn't a Spaniard, saying, "I know something you dont" Tenel Ka:"What's that?" Jacen:"I'm not left handed" Then he switches hand and later Tenel would say, "I have something to tell you...I'm not left-handed either." Then switches hands and countinued dueling.
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.
