5.0 out of 5 stars "The Lost Ones", great addition to the YJK series! 13 Feb 2002
By Priscilla Stafford - Published on Amazon.com
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.
JAINA: An almost complete opposite of her brother, she takes after her father, Han Solo. She is a mechanical whiz and just loves taking apart and putting together droids, machines, and just almost anything. Also like her father, she is very spirited and has a self-confidence which makes her a natural leader.
LOWBACCA: Called Lowie by his friends, he is a Wookie and the nephew of Chewbacca. Very courageous and strong, he loves his friends very much. To help in translating, he has miniature translating droid, Em Teedee clipped on his belt. Very much like C-3PO (almost to a fault), Em Teedee talkative and annoying at times.
TENEL KA: My personal favorite character, Tenel Ka is the daughter of Teneniel Djo, one of the witches of Dathomir, and Prince Isolder of the Royal House of Hapes. Loyal, a little humorless, brave, and strong, she is a warrior and most of all a true friend. Though strong in the force, she tries not to rely too much in it so she is very athletic.
So I highly recommend you read all of the fourteen books in order. The series are divided mostly into three parts. The first six books are about the rising force of the Empire and its Dark Jedi Knights. The next five books are about how the Jedis must stop the Diversity Alliance. And the last three books are how the Jedis deal with Czethros and Black Sun. Another Star Wars series I very much recommend are the "Jedi Apprentice" series. Don't miss them!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 8 Jan 2002
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is one of the best Young Jedi Knights books. (if you liked this one you will probably like Shards of Alderaan) I enjoyed this book thoroughly. It is very funny, especially when Zekk eats the bouquet! If you were a Classic Star Wars fan, this one's good for you because both Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo make apperances. (Even though Luke Skywalker is in all of them, or almost all of them.)

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK IS SO COOL!... 28 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Out of all the Star Wars: Young Jedi Knights books; this one is the best! Part of the reason that I like it is that I'm a Princess Leia freak and this is one of the only Young Jedi Books that have her in it! The other reason is that it has a good plot and is not boring, (which some of the other books are) but I am not going to reveal the plot to you. READ THIS BOOK!

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars 18 July 2007
By Andromeda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In the Lost Ones Jacen and Jaina return to Courscant and are excited to see Han, Leia, Anakin and their friend Zekk who lives on the streets. Things aren't exactly the same though Zekk sees how much his friends have changed and how they have a future ahead of him and he has nothing. The Dark Jedi Brakiss is also on Courscant to find new recruits for his Shadow Academy including Zekk. Can Jacen and Jaina save Zekk from the Shadow Academy? Once again another great book in the Young Jedi Knights.
4.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to the series, but not my favorite 23 Dec 2000
By "kandladin" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.
