Karr is just your average teenager trying to survive in a galaxy overseen by the New Republic: He’s constantly getting in trouble at school, his parents don’t understand him, and the one person he could count on to help him navigate it all is gone. Even worse, something is different about him. He has visions when he touches certain objects. And he’s not quite convinced it’s a simple medical condition.
Force Collector takes place in a period on the Star Wars timeline we are only just now beginning to explore in Canon: The years between the Battle of Endor and the ascension of the First Order. The Jedi and the Force are widely viewed as myths and legends, and it’s not unusual that children like Karr could be Force-sensitive without knowing such an ability exists.
The book follows Karr on his journey to discover where he comes from, what he believes in, and how he might be able to use his mysterious connection with the Force for the greater good.
In this Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker young adult novel set just before The Force Awakens, a restless teenager sets out to discover what connection his mysterious Force powers have to the fabled Jedi and what the Force has in store for him.
