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.
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.
Plot summaryObi-Wan Kenobi has lived for a year on the desolated Tatooine. One night, in a cantina, he overhears a conversation during which he finds out that Ferus Olin, Siri Tachi's ex-padawan, is still alive, but he is also in terrible danger: he was captured by the Empire, managed to flee and now he's an outlaw. Obi Wan decides to help him and flies to Bellassa, where Ferus is hiding. Unfortunately, the planet has just been invaded by the Empire. Obi-Wan begins to look for his friend.

Behind the scenes
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.
