Star Wars: Kenobi by John Jackson Miller – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

Star Wars - Kenobi

Shadowhawk takes a look at John Jackson Miller’s latest Star Wars novel, set after the events of Ep III: Revenge of the Sith.

“If you’ve ever wondered what Obi-wan was doing on Tatooine between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, then this is the novel for you. With a western-style spin on things, this is the story of the man who was forced to kill a friend, who bears the guilt for everything that happened, and the man who wants to leave his troubled past behind. An awesome novel from start to finish.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
