"Darkest Knight", the fifth book of the YJK series, is the second to the last book of one story arc. The story begins where Lowie decides to return to his homeplanet of Kashyyyk, where his younger sister, Sirrakuk, is about to go through with a Wookiee rite of passage. That is each Wookiee must prove himself (or herself) in some way. And Sirra has decided to travel to the lowest levels of the planet to get some gossamer fibers from the terrifying and dangerous syren plant. Lowie desperately wants to help her so when Chewbacca goes with him, his friends naturally decide to accompany him. Meanwhile, Zekk who has now been named the Darkest Knight, must prove himself by accomplishing his own mission: to lead a raid on the computer center on Kashyyyk. Jedi Brakiss has total trust in him, though the Nighsister Tamith Ka still doesn't believe Zekk has truly gone over to the Dark Side of the Force. So Zekk must complete another mission... that is, to eliminate the young Jedis Jacen, Jaina, Tenel Ka, and Lowie, whom they know is on the planet.
I must say that I just love the Young Jedi Knights, which is best read in order! I really like all Star Wars books but this series one of my favorites for the reasons that, 1) the characters are very interesting and close to my age, 2) superbly and well written, and 3) all books are exciting and full of adventure. This book especially has much excitement and suspense.Read more ›
