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.
"The Lost Ones" is the third book of the Young Jedi Knights Series. During their vacation and break from the Jedi Academy, the twins and their friends visit the world of Coruscant. There, Jacen and Jaina are eager for a time with the whole family, Han Solo, Leia Organa, and of course their younger brother, Anakin. Also, they would be reunited with their friend Zekk, who lives in the streets without a care in the world. But now he sees the changes in Jacen and Jaina, how they have grown up so much with a hope for the future. While he... he has nothing, just a 'lost one'. However, the Dark Jedi Brakiss, who is looking for recruits for his Shadow Academy, sees a Jedi potential in Zekk. Brakiss wants to use Zekk, turn him to the dark side of the Force, then teach him to be his Darkest Knight. What will Zekk's decision be?
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. The four main characters of the books are well likable because each of them have their own personalities, characteristics, and quirks.
JACEN: He loves all living thing from plants, animals, to insects. In his own room he has his on menagerie of them. He has a special talent in using the Force to communicate with living creatures.

This book was not my favorite in the series, but I did like it. One of the good things about it was that it showed more of Han and Leia as parents, which is very interesting, and it gives the reader a better perspective on what kind of background Jacen and Jaina came from. I also thought it was very sweet how Jacen and Jaina invited their friends home with them for their vacation, though I personally would rather have gone home to my own family. :-) Also I liked how Anakin was in this book more than he usually is, since he has always been my favorite of Han and Leia's three children, with Jaina as a close second, since she is a very strong female, reminiscent of both Han and Leia. Zekk has never been one of my favorite characters, especially in this book, mostly because he didn't really seem neccesary, at least at first, just there so Jaina would have someone to like. But, with the excellent writing of this book, I found myself truly feeling for him at certain parts, especially after the banquet, even though he is not the sort of character who usually appeals to me. So, to sum it up this was a really great book, just not my personal favorite.

3.0 out of 5 stars another mediocre book Sept. 15 1998
Format:Mass Market Paperback
well, i think anderson and moesta are taking a slow turn for the better, but they still have a long way to go to get to the quality of Anderson's other books (such as the Jedi academy trilogy). Zekk is a pale attempt at a Han Solo if he had turned the wrong way, whereas Jacen is a pale attempt at Han Solo turned...well, the way he did. I've noticed that if the empire was characteristic to the way it normally is (in the adult books), we'd have seen the death of Lando and Ackbar, and probably quite a few others. Basically, Anderson tries to write for a younger audience, but he cannot quite seem to pull it off...he lowers the quality, not the subject matter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what it was cracked up to be. Aug. 30 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jacen and Jaina Solo, along with their friends Lowie, the Wookie, and Tenel Ka, a warrier girl from Dathomair, go to the twins home world of Coruscant to visit and vacation. The twins and co. meet up with Zekk, the dark haired scamp, and have some fun. Zekk soon will have a important desicen to make, a desicen about the Force.....
I found this book boring in some parts, not enough adventure or danger. I guess it was okay, because once you read the other books, you see it was a nesseacary part of the series. I would recammand this book, but won't garrantee fun..fun..FUN!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first two... March 30 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought this book was better than its predecessors. The story is different, set on the twins home planet of Coruscant. The introduction of Zekk was one of the better points in the series, with a sarcastic sense of humor. His
scoundrel looks, and shady background make him reminiscent of Han Solo. I just wish more time was spent on explaining his relationship to the twins, especially Jaina.
I suppose that will be the subject in books to come

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but . . . Aug. 18 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a good one too, but it was my least favorite of the series. Actually, that's kind of funny because it's one of my best friends favorite, but that's not the point. There wasn't as much action at this point, and to me I didn't like the fact that Zekk was a traitor, because I have always thought he was way cool. This was a good way to set up for the next book though, and I thought it was descriptively written well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good Feb. 18 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed reading this book a lot. It was suspenseful, interesting, and unpredictable. I dislike that Zekk was seduced by Brakiss's enticements, but if I were in his situation I probably would have given in too. I liked the location of the cloaked Shadow Academy, and I consider extremely funny that a ship crashed into it thinking that it was open space. I liked this book, but not as much as its predecessor.
