Description

Karr is a teenage boy like many others in the galaxy. He goes to school, helps his parents with the family business, likes speeders and droids. But Karr also has a secret: When he touches certain objects, he gets searing headaches and blacks out. And along with the pain sometimes come visions of people he doesn't know and places he's never been.

Karr's parents worry that he's sick; his grandmother is convinced the visions come from the Force. But it's been years since anyone has heard from the last of the Jedi - Luke Skywalker. Are there any Jedi left to guide Karr in the use of his abilities? Is anyone even willing to talk about the Jedi and what happened to them, as their memory continues to fade and the First Order rises? Stuck on his isolated home planet, Karr becomes a collector of historical artifacts, hoping to one day find an object that will give him a vision about the secrets of the Jedi.

When his grandmother dies and his parents announce they're sending him away to a school on the other side of the planet, Karr reaches his breaking point. He needs to know what his destiny holds, and whether the Jedi are involved. Accompanied by Maize, the blunt, unpredictable new girl at school with ties to the First Order, and RZ-7, Karr's solicitous droid companion, he sets off into the larger galaxy to find the truth. His adventures will take him from Utapau to Jakku to Takodana and beyond as he learns more about the Jedi than he could have expected...and about his own place in the Force.

dissapointing

This book had me hooked the plot is fun the characters are well written and you really get a feel for their journey.
you really think your about to embark on a special adventure with big outcomes
its a different direction to most of the star wars books and has some cool ideas.

unfortunately as noble as the ending tries to be its ultimately a let down and leaves me feeling like really it's just not a story worth being told.

It’s like a clip show

The story of a kid that runs around and experiencing “flash backs” from important scenes in the first and second trilogies

Its a fun story...but lot to be desired.

Theres just not a whole lot of substance here. The characters are fine and not too annoying, but the story feels like fan servicr done poorly with some new characters tak'd on.

A Good Book But Cheesy Ending

I enjoyed a lot of the story in this book but for me the story didn't take it anywhere.

teens exploring the galaxy

This book includes all the awkward moments and cliches you'd expect when you have two teens exploring the Galaxy in a stolen ship. These children didn't experience any real danger as you'd might expect wandering the wastes, but rather, they skipped around asking about taboo topics with no repercussions. It also felt like many scenes were built and narrated for a future Disney ride or video game. Starwars simplified.

Horrible

No heroes, no villains, no battles, no drama. Simply the worst Star Wars novel I've listened to. Audible, please give me my credit back.

Wanted more, but still good

Not going to connect to TROS that much besides one planet that will show up in the movie. But still mostly good and will pass the time. I would Recommend only to Canon junkies who read everything.
