Publisher's Summary

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.

stick to the older star wars

I gave it a chance but it feels like it falls short of the old Eu and as such if your selecting it to reignite your passion for it, you will be better served looking elsewhere

An interesting tie in

I was very "meh" about this book until I got to the end. the way it's all tied up is pretty interesting and left me wondering, what's next?.

It's not what you think! in a good way

well, it's a great story it really is. well crafted and honestly I'm curious to read more. Basically this kid, a generation after the empire give or take, can have visions of the past when he touches items. he tries to learn about the force via this unique ability. Eventually he learns of order 66 and oh my gosh it sent goose bumps down my spine I was shook 😮. Great story telling. Wish there was more

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

the same junk disney has been putting out

its the same unimaginative junk that the new overlords of starwars wants. keeping the Force vague and more a religion. It lacked any true depth, and is overflowing with internal monologues, unrealized potential for a true conflict, focused on international conflict with no external risk. At least i can say it is mostly free of real world political or social influences, and is not trying to set an agenda as some other recent books have been attempting to do. It was rather boring all in all.

Ok

If your are consuming all the Star Wars novels, take a listen, but don't put it at the top of your list. Didn't learn hardly anything new about the Star Wars Universe...

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.

Irrelevant

This book is nothing more than an over glorified way to tell a summary of the Skywalker saga. Nothing in this book seems relevant to the sequels at all to even justify the Journey to Star Wars title tag. Returning this one.
