Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

Karr Nuq Sin is a teenager struggling with all of life's usual questions. How do I make my parents understand me? Does the new girl at school actually like me? How do I stop the visions given to me by the Force from catapulting me into fitful seizures of intense pain? Much like Quinlan Vos, Karr is gifted with the Force ability to witness an object's history just by touching. This power instills within him an unyielding curiosity about the history of the Jedi and the Force, and alongside his new friend Maize and his trusty droid, Karr sets out on an adventure across the galaxy to find out exactly what happened to the mystical warriors of decades gone by. Maybe he'll discover his own destiny along the way.

Staff Comments

- Charles Hankel

Force Collector is a lovely look back on the history of the Skywalker saga through brand new eyes, but the overall plot lacks the energy to truly make it a must read. Easter eggs and nostalgia are littered throughout the pages, and you can't help smiling as your favorite moments are relived within Karr's mind, yet you can't help want just a bit more connective tissue throughout.

- Eric Eilersen

This book is excellent for people who are very new to the entire saga. The protagonist goes to familiar places and witnesses visions of past events that occur in the films. I imagine it would be fun for someone who has never seen the movies to read this first and think back to reading about these visions as they come across those scenes when watching the films for the first time. As a longtime Star Wars fan who already knows what happens, it was simply a walk through memory lane and not much more. It’s still a fun story, but it personally didn’t offer me anything new.

Since the author said he had to rewrite some of the book because he accidentally wrote part of The Rise of Skywalker (....oops???), I was really looking forward to this one -- and I was not disappointed. Young adult novels, even in Star Wars, are about self-discovery, and it wasn't difficult to fall in love with the story's main character as we went on a journey together. Though many of us might have expected a familiar character from the saga to venture across the galaxy discovering things from Skywalkers past, it was so much fun seeing what Karr sees and knowing what it means even when he doesn't. I hope we see more of this character in future projects.

Force Collector was a light, fun, solid Star Wars book. I liked the way the characters unravel the truth of Order 66 as they discover more Star Wars artifacts. The choice of Force-filled objects was absolutely perfect, and I was pleasantly surprised with every discovery. All-in-all, this is far from a top-tier Star Wars book, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!
