Jedi Search is a very interesting science fiction book created by Anderson to piece together the years after Return of the Jedi. This book is the first in a trilogy called the Jedi Academy. Kevin Anderson did an excellent job in opening up the trilogy, while at the same time keeping with an excellent plot. The story itself starts off with Luke, the now Jedi Master, appealing to the New Republic to allow him to reform the Jedi Knights. Of course he gets approval. Right away he dashes out across the galaxy in search of his new candidates while Han and Chewie are off to Kessel, a mining planet, to convince it to join the New Republic. Several things happen to both quests, good and bad, that will keep you on the edge of your seat begging for more. There is so many twists and turns that I can¿t tell you without giving away the whole ending. The story becomes so much more than just good vs. evil, Light vs. Dark. In the end the story enthralls you with its excellent sense of description and words. There¿s a part where Anderson writes, ¿the beam hit the scales and broke into a million beams of light shooting all over the cavern.¿ Here, before after, and everywhere in between Anderson shows just how good of a writer he is. I definitely recommend this book to everyone, but if you read this one you¿ll definitely want to read the other two.

A good enough book for a sequel

The story was a little slow moving in places, but the Han Solo and Chewbacca part of the story made it worth it. My best advice is to read it so that you will be prepared for the far superior sequel, "Dark Apprentice".
