Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Emily Ritchey
Full of rage and wanting revenge, the brothers Darth Maul and Savage Opress create horror and mayhem while drafting the wickedest criminals to join their army to find Darth Maul’s arch nemesis, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Darth Maul’s defense force, consisting of the cruelest villains, signifies that nothing can stop him against his rival. Readers will be enthralled to discover Darth Maul’s traumatic childhood and the consequences of these two brothers’ actions in this thrilling story. One of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars saga, Darth Maul is one of its most feared villains. This book portrays Darth Maul in a more personable light than other Star Wars stories because it reveals his traumatic childhood and its effects on his life. Also, the book resembles a biography, linking together stories from previous books in the Star Wars saga. The story’s only weakness is that the characters’ names might confuse some readers due to their pronunciation. The story’s energy and sense of adventure will captivate young adults. “Star Wars” series. Reviewer: Emily Ritchey; Ages 8 to 12.

Although this book is--as of now--a novelized spoiler zone, I truly recommend reading for those of you who don't mind spoiled plot points. It's mainly so good thanks to Jason Fry, who didn't dumb down his writing because this was going to be a children's book, didn't patronize us with choppy sentences or anything of the sort. He made this book true to the script of "Revival", and although the other featured in the book haven't aired, I can assume he did likewise. And what your children--or yourself--learn from the show can be expected to be learned here as well: the book contains the same themes of courage, hope, and determination that has already set the television series apart. (also, you can learn something from the showdown of good in evil in this book, of Kenobi's resolve to make his mistakes from the Phantom Menace)
