It’s been a hot minute since I last posted. I mean, I do try to post at least once per a month, more if possible, but it’s been a crazy busy June!

Review/Thoughts: A guide passed from Master to Apprentice. How I came about it? Well, how else would I come by a copy?
This book was really fun to read. I enjoyed reading through the knowledge preserved within the pages. I don’t know as much as some people do about of Star Wars. I take an interest in it, but I don’t know everything there is. We see a lot of the Jedi Order throughout books and movies alike, but what I appreciate about this is it gives more more of an inside look at the Order. Letting you see and learn a few things that you might not have known before.
The notes along side the pages from past Jedi were a neat touch. Their little comments and thoughts were fun to read and I felt like each were true to their character. Having already read Jedi Apprentice Series by Jude Watson; I felt like Obi-wan’s comments were the most true to his character. It actually felt like Obi-Wan had left those comments. Which I love!
One thing I loved about this book, besides all the comments from past holders, was the fact that it broke down and explained The Trials. They’re talked about a lot, as they are important to Padawans within the order. I’ve heard of them, but I never really knew what they consisted of. Now I do! Yes, each Padawan Trail is different but it was still nice to know what The Trials consisted of and what exactly you were being tested on. Another thing I appreciated was the fact that they broke down the ranks of the Jedi. Ranks like Guardian, Sage, Sentinel and so forth. I knew they were there, and I knew a bit about each class, but it was nice that this book talked about those sub classes, if you will, and explained what role each played within the Jedi Order.
My only complaint I really have with this book is the fact that, at some point, before coming into my possession, Sidious had gotten a hold of it and had to add his jeers within it’s pages. What can you do though? Of course a Sith Lord wants to mock the Jedi Order. That being said, I am slightly curious when Sidious had gotten a hold of the manuscript.
