When Ferus Olin was a young Jedi apprentice, his rival was a headstrong student named Anakin Skywalker. Now Ferus is older, trying to save the Jedi order from extinction. His enemy, however, remains the same. Because Anakin Skywalker is now Darth Vader... and Darth Vader wants Ferus Olin destroyed. This is their final encounter. The fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance.

This story occurs between approximately six to seven months after the events of Revenge of the Sith (18 and a half years before the Battle of Yavin).

Review by Bones, UK, 2012:

"As finale's go, Reckoning does a great job of providing not only a climax, but also rounding things off and not leaving too many loose ends. Ferus Olin faces off against Vader, the Imperial traitor is finally revealed and Operation Twilight comes to fruition.
"The Last of the Jedi series as a whole has been the most consistent of Jude Watson's three major series in terms of quality of the storytelling, which mainly comes from the single overarching story rather than the more episodic approach of the other two. But the finale raises that already decent standard with its rather stunning ending. Whilst some of the revelations are a tad obvious, the overall ending of the series came as quite a shock. Without wanting to give too much away, it really isn't how I expected the series to finish and that, in itself, makes it a more satisfying read that the other books in the series, although there were a few inconsistencies within the text itself - perhaps the writing was a little rushed.
"There are some very poignant moments here and a greater level of emotional maturity in the final scenes than one might have expected given the target audience.
"This series was great fun to read, with a fitting ending. Well worth it."

Rating: 4 / 5
