a short Star Wars novel aimed at children
on 11 January 2017
This is a novel aimed at young readers (aged 8 to 14), and viewed in those terms it's quite good - although rather short. For adult readers, especially those who enjoy the Star Wars Extended Universe saga, this book may be something of a let down. The story focuses on aspects of the life of Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader, touching on his rise to power as the Dark Lord and his ultimate death. Everything is discussed very briefly. On the whole, the plot elements are taken from existing stories - and there's very little new here.
I recommend this item to young readers who are fans of Darth Vader.
