My ten year-old is a Star Wars fanatic and he's read many of the books in this series.

Boba meeting Anakin seems highly out of place, given its intimacy and how those characters reacted to each other in their scenes in the actual film of ESB.

Having said that, while this series was primarily for younger readers, adults will get something out of it as well.

The Boba Fett series comes to a thrilling conclusion with Boba, now a warrior and bounty hunter in his own right, seeking revenge on Mace Windu, the jedi who murdered his father at the start of the Clone Wars.

There is a twist ending I won't give away, but I will say Chancellor Palpatine makes a sudden appearance and there IS an actual confrontation between jedi and bounty hunter.

Readers might experience sympathy with the Boba character as he is basically a boy who grows up to be a cold warrior because of what happened to his father.

Having said that, while this series was primarily for younger readers, adults will get something out of it as well. I know I did.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was astounded by the cover's CGI redition of Asaji Ventress. I just picked it up and bought it. Some of the major points in the book:

-Anakin( a couple months away from becoming Vader) and Boba encounter each other and become friends( which actually shows why Darth didn't strangle Boba when he objected to his orders in ESB- because they are friends.).

- Boba goes to the Jedi Temple and encounters Mace Windu (killed Jango Fett) by just a glimpse.

- Boba gets his weapons back and breaks into the emporer's throne room and fights Mace, with Mace about to win when Palpatine interrupts, and Boba tells the soon- to- be emporer about dooku. (I still think Boba should have killed Mace in ROTS instead of Anakin.)

Although adult readers will completely blow through this series in a few hours, it is well worth reading. Definately took me back to my "dumb kid" days seeing Boba make all of the mistakes he did as a youth. Driven off hatred and vengence...this definately sets a good back story for the best Bounty Hunter in the galaxy. Must read for all ages!

I ordered this for my 13 year old son because he had read the whole series and loved it but we were unable to purchase this at the store because it was out of print. His words "EPIC"!!! Good ending to the series.

For a children's novel this series holds up. Sad to see it end on this one but all good things...right? Looking to get your kid into reading and they have a love of Star Wars? This would be a great way to start!

My ten year-old is a Star Wars fanatic and he's read many of the books in this series. This series, as well as the Jedi Apprentice series and the Last of the Jedi series are his favorites. We get this series on the Kindle and he reads them at bedtime or in the car. He first discovered this series at the school library and has read each one since. He has loved seeing Boba from another point of view...
