Star Wars: Kenobi

Star Wars: Kenobi

Summary

The greatest hero in the galaxy faces his toughest challenge yet: He must stop
being Obi-Wan -- and become Crazy Old Ben. For fans of movie-related novels like
Darth Plagueis!

In this original novel set between the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the
Sith
and Episode IV A New Hope, Obi-Wan Kenobi comes to the aid of the residents of
Tatooine during his exile. But he struggles with his new mission when he realizes that
protecting Luke Skywalker--the last hope of the galaxy--means setting aside his
compassion and his Jedi warrior training, for the future of the galaxy lies not with
Obi-Wan Kenobi, but with a mystical desert recluse known only by the name of Crazy
Old Ben.
