More About the Author
As a writer, I wear two hats. As Judy Blundell I write for Young Adults, and I won the National Book Award for my novel, WHAT I SAW AND HOW I LIED.
I write for middle-graders while wearing my Jude Watson hat, which is a bit more colorful. Maybe it even has a spinning propeller on top. I love to write mystery-adventures with thrilling twists and oddball characters and kids who find themselves in impossible situations doing incredible things.
I do all this from a chair, in a little room, in a not-big house, in a small town on Long Island. I like to read and I like to draw (badly) and my idea of excitement is to lace up my sneakers and walk to the harbor and back. I'm a nervous flyer and though I am respectful of the physics of modern aviation I also secretly suspect that it is only the unified belief of passengers that tons of metal can hurtle through the air that keeps a plane in flight. I am also not terribly comfortable on suspension bridges. And don't even ask me to go on a ferris wheel.
I am listing these fears just to clue you in: I'm a physical coward. I'm also a creature of habit. Once in awhile I go a little crazy and take a different route to the grocery store.
Still, I'll throw incredible amounts of danger at my characters. And I'll cackle maniacally while I do it.
Other random facts: During deadline periods I am deeply committed to popcorn and apples.
Every summer I go to Cape Cod, and every summer I wish I had a whole month there. I never do.
I am waiting for the day I'll see someone reading a book of mine in an airport or a train or a diner. I will most likely embarrass myself by cavorting and singing "That's ME!"

Jude Watson has again excelled herself with her latest book in the "Last of the Jedi Series: Death on Naboo". My eight year old son and I are avid Star Wars fans and have really enjoyed reading this book and the whole series so far, and are now eagerly waiting for the next edition (Book 5).
Initially we were both disappointed when Obi-Wan faded into the background in Book 3 and it became obvious that the series would follow a different path. I personally felt there was some real chemistry between Ferus, Trevour and Obi-Wan that could have been pursued further. However, Watson has brought to life an array of splendid characters that can be quite amusing at times, and who we are now developing an affection for. Set within a story that incorporates moments of sadness, suspense, and adventure the only thing wrong with this book is that it is not long enough and it leaves you wanting more, especially the last Chapter.
My only criticism of the book, and of the other three in the series so far, is that they are not specific or consistent in terms of defining when this story, actually take place after Revenge of the Sith.
I feel the overall potential for this series is one that could equal or even surpass 'Quest' and 'Apprentice' in terms of its popularity and the extent to by which stories could be explored in the future. I know my son and his friends can't get enough of Star Wars, and that it is going to be a long wait till the fifth book is released. The good thing about Jude Watson is that she writes with a style that allows all Star Wars fans both young and old to enjoy a sense of adventure and escapism.
This book is outstandingly gripping and you will see some characters from the PT movies.
I'm now conviced that Ferus Olin is a great Jedi - yes, he left the order before taking his trials, nonetheless, he proved to be a far better Jedi than Anakin. Ferus, without trainning, has showed what a real Jedi should be (compare of course to Anakin, not to the rest of the Jedi).
The plot of this book is about Padme's secret, that must be kept as it is at all costs.
The climax of this book, with an amazing flashback/deja-vu to a memorable SW moment (that I will not reveal ;)), will keep you gaping and gripping the book, like I did.
I strongly recommend all of you to read this series.
Jude Watson's a master at telling action-packed stories that stand alone and stand in line. (I guess with 30 + books under your belt you've gotta be worth something:-) Excellent for newcomers or old timers as far as star wars EU goes.
