Barbara Hambly’s Star Wars: Children of the Jedi takes place some months after the events of The Jedi Academy Trilogy while also launching a trilogy of stories involving ex-Jedi Knight Callista Ming. The story alternates between events on The Eye of Palpatine – a massive automated battlemoon disguised as an asteroid that exists to wipe out any Jedi colonies after the Empire’s rise to power – and the planet Belsavis – an icy world with tropical cities located around volcanic vents where some Jedi once hid from the Empire. Luke Skywalker and See-Threepio are stuck on The Eye of Palpatine trying to outwit its automated computer, the Will, and evade various aliens that the battlemoon captured and brainwashed into thinking they are Imperial stormtroopers and officers. Fortunately, there appears to be a ghost in the machine: Callista, a former Jedi who appears to have died on a mission against The Eye of Palpatine decades prior, but whose consciousness was downloaded and now fights for control against the Will. Meanwhile, on Belsavis, Han Solo, Leia Organa-Solo, Chewbacca, and Artoo-Deetoo search for the remnants of the Jedi colony and uncover a dark secret about Palpatine’s brainwashed minions in caves beneath the settlement.

Callista’s insight into the Force offers a fun moment when she says, “It’s something even the Masters don’t reveal about the inner nature of the secret heart of the universe… The deepest and darkest secret of all that the Force lets you see… The universe has a sense of humor.” To which Luke replies, “I’ll have to be a lot higher-level Jedi than I am before I even want to think about that” (pgs. 191-192). Hambly also included a fun metatextual reference, with the planet “Neelgaimon” referencing the author Neil Gaiman (pg. 158). Hambly later contributed to The Sandman: Book of Dreams, based on Gaiman’s Lord of the Dreaming. Kevin J. Anderson’s Darksaber and Hambly’s Planet of Twilight continue the story following the events of Children of the Jedi. Overall, this is an enjoyable entry in the Bantam Spectra era of Star Wars novels that preceded the Prequel Trilogy. It’s not the strongest, but it’s fun and works well both as a standalone story and the first part of a three-part story. ( )

So I have been a fan of Star Wars since I was 5. I have loved the movies that George Lucas created from his mind. This book did not reflect that world at all.

The author tried too hard to make the world of Star Wars like our worlds. Adding in concubines and courts. It came off very medieval-esque. George Lucas always meant for the world of Star Wars to be different and unrelatable from our world.

I also don't enjoy a quick forced love story. The two major love stories in Star Wars were a while in the making. And yet, in this story its love within only a few days.

Needless to say I was very disappointed in this story. It had the potential to be so much better. ( )

I enjoyed this book, although I recognize that it won't appeal to every Star Wars fan. I am very uncomfortable with the way things ended. Two deaths were basically ignored so Callista could leave the ship in a new body. All the clues are there, it's just such a horrifying idea it didn't cross my mind. ( )

I don't remember much about this book, but I think it's the one where Han and Leia's children are kidnapped and at one point, consumed by a Force-wielding slug thing.

ETA: ok, so apparently this is not the book with the magic space slug. Instead, it is the story of Luke's attempt to destroy the Empire's superweapon "Eye of Palpatine". His only ally on the ghost ship is another ghost, that of a long-dead Jedi named Callista. I kinda liked her, but the romance was a bit soppy. ( )

I'll be honest: I could understand what was happening about three quarters of the time, and I understood *why* most events were happening about one quarter of the time. The parts I understood I liked. But the level of detail that attempts to describe the characters' surroundings tends to obfuscate everything else--and when you don't understand what the detail being described is in the first place, it's a tough read. It took me about a hundred pages to get into this book. Once I did, I was invested enough to plow through the parts I didn't (and still don't) understand. It's rough going, though. (But I did like the ending!) ( )
