The Last of the Jedi: The Desperate Mission is the first in a series of young reader novels that chronicle the adventures of former Jedi Padawan Ferus Olin after the events of Order 66. The Desperate Mission follows Obi-Wan Kenobi during his exile on Tatooine after Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

Publisher's summaryEdit

The Empire has risen. The Jedi Order has been destroyed. As far as the Emperor is concerned, the Jedi are all but extinct.

But on the remote planet of Tatooine, one Jedi Master remains: Obi-Wan Kenobi. Devastated by the loss of his fellow Jedi—and the betrayal of his former apprentice Anakin—Obi-Wan has been left with one last task: to watch over and protect a young child named Luke.

When Obi-Wan finds out that a former Jedi apprentice has survived, he must make a painful decision: whether to stay on Tatooine or go on one last, desperate mission—right into the heart of the Empire.

The thrilling new series from The New York Times bestselling author of Jedi Apprentice and Jedi Quest.

Obi-Wan Kenobi has lived for a year on the desolated Tatooine. He remains there to watch over Luke Skywalker; he and his sister Leia may be the last hope for the galaxy. One night after fulfilling his duty of watching Luke for the day he stops by a cantina, to see if he can pick up any news worth hearing. He only hears the usual gossip and exagerations and begins to walk out the door. But at the last second he hears Ferus' name mentioned. Ferus is running from the empire (whereas Obi-Wan assumed he was dead), and Obi-Wan would love to help him, but is charged to stay and watch Luke. Troubled he heads outside.

He is confronted by Qui-Gon's ghost. After a brief conversation, Obi-Wan is convinced that his Master can watch over Luke for a short period of time. Long enough for Obi-Wan to help Ferus on the planet Bellassa. He receives a ride from the same pilot he heard the information from, and starts his desperate mission to find Ferus and revive the Republic.

Behind the scenesEdit

Clone troopers are erroneously written as stormtroopers during Clone Wars and Battle of Geonosis.

It is noted that on the cover, Obi-Wan is holding his lightsaber from Episode I and II eventhough the book is set in the time period after Episode III. In Episode III, Obi-Wan used his final lightsaber.
