A new saga will begin in ‘A Test of Courage’
I am a huge Star Wars fan. Growing up I watched the original trilogy, and as an adult I have seen every film that has come out. I really liked Star Wars Rebels, and The Mandalorian has been amazing so far. When I heard about A Test of Courage I hoped I would get a chance to read it. I was able to get a digital copy of this book and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for A Test of Courage here:
Vernestra Rwoh is a new Jedi Knight at age sixteen, but her first real assignment feels an awful lot like babysitting. She’s been charged with supervising twelve-year old aspiring inventor Avon Starros on a cruiser headed to the dedication of a wondrous new space station called Starlight Beacon.
But soon into their journey, bombs go off aboard the cruiser. While the adult Jedi try to save the ship, Vernestra, Avon, Avon’s droid J-6, a Jedi Padawan, and an ambassador’s son make it to an escape shuttle, but communications are out and supplies are low. They decide to land on a nearby moon, which offers shelter but not much more. And unbeknownst to them, danger lurks in the forest.
I had an absolute blast reading this book. We get introduced to some wonderful characters, and a few truly despicable villains. None of these characters are perfect, but to survive a mysterious planet they will need to work together. Just when they seem to be getting along, it turns out they aren’t alone. One person decides to do something drastic, and afterwards they have a hard time getting over it. Yet as this book comes to a close, the destinies of two people will have changed forever. Fans of Star Wars will definitely want to check this book out.
