Star Wars: The Weapon of a Jedi is in the line of Star Wars books leading to the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens. It tells of a story on how Luke goes on a mission to help out some new allies of the Rebel Alliance after the Battle of Yavin, when his Y-Wing breaks down and he needs help.
He runs into a man known as Sarco Plank to go to a forbidden Temple. Luke is drawn to the temple through the force. He knows it is one of the ancient Jedi Temples throughout the galaxy.
Sarco Plank agrees to take him. He has his own agenda.
The story is well written. It is in the vein of the now Star Wars: Legends novel, Splinter of the Mind’s Eye, with Luke gaining abilities in the force. Luke survives his encounter with Sarco Plank (a character seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens). Since, Luke Skywalker was always my favorite character, I was always going to read this book.
I give it a rating of 5 Dragon Coins
