This book is awesome! There are tons of different characters and plots and each one is as interesting as the next. Some Jedi survived the Jedi purge and are living in hiding, striking against the empire when they can. One Jedi in particular, Ferus Olan plays an especially important role. Pretending to join the Imperials so that he can get closer to Vader and learn how to defeat him, he comes perilously close to joining the dark side. Vader suspects him but the Emperor places Ferus in positions of importance, namely the head inquisitor. Ferus's job takes him to Alderaan where he is to investigate rumors of a force sensitive child there. Learning that it is Princess Leia Organa, he teams up with Bill Organa to keep her safe. The banter between the most evil Sith Lord ever and Ferus who is just barely a Jedi knight is absolutely hysterical. Seeing Vader grow angry at Ferus and not being able to do anything because Ferus is under the protection of the Emperor is one of the funniest things the Star Wars community has given to the world. This book and the series is highly recommended. ( )

Even as an adult, I enjoy these small books. Just the right amount of action, plot, and suspense for a quick read. Master of Deception sets the stage well for the next and final book in the Last of the Jedi series. ( )

I'm still buying the Last of the Jedi books out of loyalty to Jude Watson's old Jedi Apprentice books, which I really liked. These are pretty so-so efforts: none of the characters come across particularly strongly-- and there's about a dozen major characters, which is hard to pull off in a format this fleeting. Ferus Olin is falling to the dark side (join the club, dude), but neither Watson's writing nor his characterization are strong enough to make it compelling enough that I'll care.

No descriptions found.

Ferus Olin's in full blown double agent mode and that's got him and his friends worried. Friendship and loyalty are certainly tested when it comes down to the question of "who do you serve?" or "How much hurt can one inflict while doing something necessary?"… (more)
