Obi-Wan, Anakin, and another pair of Jedi must try to retrieve an evil scientist from a planet run by criminals as a refuge for other criminals. In order to do this, they have to go undercover — as the kind of scum they usually try to catch. Will the means be worth the ends? Or will Anakin learn too much about the seamier side of the galaxy?

Young adult: Jude Watson has penned several Young Adult sagas for Star Wars. If you compare them with their more mature brothers and sisters you will be disappointed. These stories must be read if you look for a quick and easy fix for Star Wars. Nothing more.

Frenzy: this is the main strength of the book. Short story with plenty of action in a festival of everything that makes Star Wars great. But I must admit this author’s formula is being overused. I would have loved more writers taking their chance in the Young Adult sagas.

Undercover: a nice undercover mission for our favourite group of jedis. I love the banter between Siri and Obi-Wan. It is pretty fun to read! The mission itself goes sideways, by the way. It is not a spoiler… it was a given.
