Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Toni Jourdan
Two years after the Battle of Yavin, we catch up with bounty hunter, Boba Fett who's in the Old Hallet Prairie tracking down Rolu and Edu, two bounty hunter brothers who have stolen what they believe to be an ancient relic worth a great fortune: the Arachedron. Fett thwarts their attempt, forcing them to chain themselves to a burning wreckage. He leaves them alive, but the brothers vow that they will see Boba Fett again and make him regret not killing them. Before he leaves he explodes the Arachedron, revealing it to be a fake. Fake or not it still held something important inside. Boba Fett contacts Denov asking questions about the whereabouts of a four hundred year old luxury line cruiser called the Reverie. He's offered four more bounties, but he's not about to give up his search for the Arachedron. Fett searches out an old ship graveyard on the galaxy's edge. There he finds the wrecked ship but he's not the only one at the graveyard. There are junkers and scrap merchants and skittering creatures and finally the bounty hunter brothers Edu and Rolu, that are none too happy to be playing catch up with their search. This object of legend was linked to an alien culture long since died out. What will Boba Fett find once he's located this relic and it's hidden treasures? Is it worth all of the trouble that these bounty hunters have put into the search? Colorful, then dark, bold shapes and images that clearly represent the adventures of a well-known bounty hunter. It's difficult to pick up a character that is so well known and place them in the lead of their own adventure. Barlow does this well. Boba Fett is an unlikely hero in a universe of good versus evil.
