"As Ferus Olin awaits his own execution at the hands of the Empire, Inquisitor Malorum is getting closer and closer to the secret of the birth of Anakin Skywalker's offspring.
Jude Watson continues this rather epic story arc and, in fact, ties off some plot lines here. We get to see a face-off between the former Jedi and the Inquisitor, as well as seeing Trever's character developed quite nicely; we learn a little of his back story (only very little, admittedly) but enough to begin fleshing him out into more than just a sidekick with an ceaseless supply of glib comments.
The ending, sadly, felt a little rushed, with pieces falling a little too easily into place and "convenient" things happening. Nothing hugely wrong, but enough to cause perhaps a little discomfort when reading. The links with
The Phantom Menace are also perhaps a touch laboured.
Regardless, a solid volume in the Last of the Jedi series."
