Star Wars Revelation
By Karen Traviss
Star Wars Revelation is about the times that happened after the War with the Empire that finally restored peace to the Galaxy. It is a sequel to the original Star Wars Saga. It began when Luke Skywalker started a new Jedi order along with his wife, Mara Jade-Skywalker. They had a son named Ben. He was named after the great Jedi, Ben Kinobi, who was Luke’s mentor and close friend. He was the Jedi that helped to train Luke in the original episode. He taught him the ways of the force. His sister, Laya, and her husband, Han Solo helped to create the new Jedi order with them. They had a son named Jacen that was training to be a Jedi, but he decided to turn against them and start a new empire. He became a sith, which is a person that leaves the Jedi order and becomes an outcast.
Jacen, became known as Darth Ceadus. He was sith lord and was training an apprentice named Tahiri. His purpose for creating this new empire was to overthrow the Galactic Alliance (GA), which was formed after the old rebellion. Meanwhile, Mara Jade, his Aunt, was brutally murdered. Ben Skywalker, her son, began an investigation to find out who killed his mother. He predicts that Jacen was the one that killed his mother, so he was investigating every detail of where Jacen was and what he did on the day of his mother’s death.
Jacen has a sister named Jaina. She wanted to capture her brother to stop him from taking over the GA. The only way she would be able to do that was to learn the ways of bounty hunting. Boba Fett, the galaxy’s most dangerous bounty hunter, taught Jaina how to find her brother. She tracked Boba Fett for days and followed him throughout the galaxy to learn his ways. He was trying to find his missing wife.
In conclusion, these characters were all involved in a dispute over the power of the galaxy. The saga continues to show the powers of good verses evil.
