Hey there, Star Wars fans! This Expanded Universe reread is going to go a little differently from the others. See, Emily Asher-Perrin and Natalie Zutter have spent an inadvisable amount of time in Brooklyn bars discussing their childhoods reading Star Wars books… and how prominently the Young Jedi Knights series featured in that. (Both of them dressed up as Tenel Ka when they were small, and believe that this says something about them personally. They do not know what. No, you can’t see the pictures. Well… maybe.)
For those who may be unaware, the Young Jedi Knights series was concerned with the training and hijinks of Han and Leia’s twins, Jacen and Jaina, and their cadre of friends. There were lessons! Friendships! Drama! Teenage romance! Lots of puns and questionable humor! And these were the first books to feature the Solo twins slightly older and more competent. So there’s that.
So we’re going to start at the beginning with Heirs of the Force!
