Welcome, everyone, to another discussion in the 181st Imperial... well, seriously, hands up. Who of you actually has the Junior Jedi Knight books available for a thorough re-read and a proper discussin'? The six-volume-author-changing-mid-series-to-a-non-surprising-name series? The actual reason that Tahiri exists? Probably the second best source if you want to find out about Anakin Solo? Since there might be even less people around here who can make a statement about the series than during the Young Jedi Knights series 3 discussion (meaning... one instead of two), we'll follow @Jeff_Ferguson's suggestion and turn this discussion group into one of those "guy reads books, tries to give wizard summaries" thing. So, Rachel and Thomas, snuggle yourself tight into your blankets and pillows, since I'll now tell you the story of... Anakin Solo! "Will there be a fuzzy rabbity thing?" Yes, Rachel, there will be. But don't be afraid, it won't be called Max. The Golden Globe First of all, we have a Puzzling Prologue, which is always great. especially in the EU, since we can retcon the hell out of this. Is it truly a prologue, a vision Anakin has of Tahiri before they even meet, just like the dreams we'll see later on, but one that Anakin forgets about? Is it meant to be an actual scene later on, once the Globe mystery is about to be solved? Is it - gasp - even a scene set during the NJO, when Anakin finally acknowledges that he's in love with Tahiri? Or even later, shortly before Anakin dies, with him taking in life much more clearly? Stay tuned to find out. In the first chapter, we find out pretty usual stuff about Our Eleven Year Old Hero and his life at home with the Dursleys Solos, which is hell pretty standard stuff. Okay, it's a bit weird that he has Luke's eyes, but let's not get into theories like that please. This does, however, set him up perfectly as "Luke Skywalker 2.0" who'll follow Luke's role model instead of becoming the philosopher. Despite of his previous journeys through the galaxy, Anakin is so fond of Coruscant that he immediately points out the differences between Coruscant and that other planet he's now about to see - Yavin 4! Home to the marvellous training adventures of that Corran Horn guy you loved hearing about so much! "Corran Horn was so cool! All the stuff he did and knew. Will he train Anakin instead of Luke Skywalker?" No, he won't. But if you're good little Junior Jedi Knights, maybe he'll have an adventure with Anakin soon, and even train one of his friends. But lights out for now!
