As a lifelong Star Wars fan, I was excited to pick up these books that are all re-imagined by authors who are awesome in their own right. I loved how each book in this series taught me something new about about the Star Wars universe. I particularity liked following along with Luke on his Jedi training and learning about how to tap into the Force through meditation. While these books are aimed at readers 9-12 years of age, they should be enjoyed by everyone.
