Fantastic!

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.

OMG. I just finished reading book #4 - Death on Naboo ... I have no words to describe how AMAZING this instalment is.

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.

I have to say, I've been a fan of Jude Watson since I was 13, ever since I first started reading her Jedi Apprentice Series, I've been hooked. Though I am 20 now, these books still offer an amazingly rich story line of the love between master and apprentice. The Last of the Jedi series is a great addition. Death on Naboo is wonderful, it keeps you on your toes, not quite sure what might happen next. Ferus is now one of my favorite jedi, and Trever adds a heart to these books that were missing in the Jedi Quest series. I do suggest you read these books, and check out the Apprentice and Quest series as well, since it will make things in this series more understandable.

My son reads a lot of the Star Wars series and this is one of his favorites. He also likes the Jedi Apprentice books (which take place before Star Wars I - The Phantom Menace, and the Boba Fett series that takes place around the same time as the Clone Wars series. He reads all of these books so fast I can hardly keep him in them! He's finished all 18 of the Jedi Apprentice books and is seven or eight into the Boba Fett series. I get the Boba Fett series on my Kindle, but he is not allowed to take electronics to school, so I get this series in paperback so he has books to bring to school with him.

I can't say enought about this series, this book and this author. I love them all. I am officially a big fan of Jude Watson. The story of Ferus, Trevor and friends is awesome. I was disapointed at first that it was not following Obi-wan as I originally thought it would, but now I really like it. Star Wars fans young and old will like this book. Even though the release date says April, I found it at a book store last week. I recommend buying this book and the preceding books if you haven't already.

That's the first word that came to mind when I finished Death on Naboo. Jude Watson is an amazing writer. She should write every Star Wars book. This one was filled with advanture, suspense, laughter and sadness. It begins with Ferus in prison knowing a Jedi he basically has a death sentence. Then we go to Naboo were Malorum is still investiaging Padme's death. More specifically whether or not Padme's child is alive. The scene between Malorum and Padme's grandmother was very good. Obi Wan of course told Ferus to keep an eye out for Malorum investigating Padme's death. He goes to Naboo to stop Malorum even though Ferus himself doesn't know he needs to stop Malorum. That's what makes Ferus so great. He trusts Obi Wan enough to risk his life even thought he doesn't know why. The very end when Ferus recieves a message on his comlink when only a very few can get in touch with him is chilling.
