Ferus Olin, a former Jedi apprentice, journeys through the underworld of the planet Coruscant in order to rescue a Jedi who is imprisoned in the Jedi Temple by the Empire.
Ferus and Trever are trying to save a Jedi who is rumored to be held prisoner in the Jedi Temple. Ferus was a Jedi, once, and resigned. However, now he's trying to become a Jedi again. Trever wants to stay with Ferus and refuses every chance to leave.
The two sneak into the Jedi temple and try to evade stromtroopers, who work for the tyrraninal emperor. Ferus doesn't only try to fight the stormtroopers in the temple but also his feelings and memories from when he was a Jedi.
As they look for a possible prison in the Temple, they find that the rumors are made to lead surviving Jedi into traps. There really was no captive Jedi. Ferus and Trever flee the temple hastily.
Ferus and Trever meet, soon afterwards, and old friend Dexter Jettster. Dex has joined a group called the Eraced, which helps people disappear from the Empire. He tells them that one Jedi went to the crust after talking to him and said that if he ever needed her, he should look for Solace.
Then, part of the Erased, Ferus, and Trever go to find Solace, a place rumored to be on or even underneath the crust of Coruscant (the crust is the lowest level on the planet).
Finally, under the crust, they find a guide to lead them to Solace, but Ferus feels that there is something off. Will Ferus discover what that is, or will it be too late?
Giorgio Kostantinos‾‾'Quest' series, this book is greatly written and anyone who has read the Last of the Jedi books should read it. I loved it and read it at least four times, if not more. I can't wait for the next book to come out.
It will be interesting to see how many of the mentioned characters will end up dead before the end of the series. I have a feeling that two, maybe four, will end up "not alive" by book ten. And I think all have force abilities. Time will tell I guess.
I will say that it is starting to read more like Star Wars with each passing book. The epicness is starting to creep in. It went from sort of narrow - one person searching for another on one planet and small scale - to more epic - we are now getting galaxy-wide. The danger is ramped up a little with each passing page. The Empire is coming off as what we seem to remember from episodes 3-5 of the movies. Jude Watson has captured this dark period of the Star Wars universe very well.
