Review by Bones, UK, 2010:

"The Jedi Prince series continues with this less-than-impressive second instalment. As with the previous book (The Glove of Darth Vader), there are too many things about it that are just so silly that it's amazing that anyone ever thought they would be acceptable. The characters continually say incredibly obvious and pointless things (including some very dubious Ho'Din rhymes), the antagonist decides that the best way to find a Lost City is to burn down all the jungles on Yavin 4, Artoo's vocalisations continue to be written phonetically and the whole concept of Han Solo building himself a "dream sky-house", complete with nanowave stove on which zoochberry pies can be cooked is so utterly out of character that it begs to be ridiculed. All of this is in no way helped by the deus ex machina at the end of the story when they put out the blazing fires and save the planet (ecological messages abound).
"Too much silliness, too much inappropriate characterisation and a total lack of thought make this a poor and unsatisfying read."

Rating: 0.5 / 5
