The Star Wars original trilogy as seen through the eyes of two childhood friends.


Thane Kyrell – Son of a privileged family on the planet Jelucan.
Ciena Ree – Daughter of a lower class family on Jelucan.


This is a story I absolutely loved. You follow these two characters, from their initial friendship as children, to adults when their friendship blossoms into love. You see the effects of the Empire on their relationship, as one is drawn further away from the Empire while the other is drawn to stay loyal. While a short story, it manages to travel through all the stories of the original trilogy, while bringing a Romeo and Juliet type spin to the saga.

For all the readers out there who are Star Wars fans, or not necessarily fans, but like romantics stories I think this is a book you’ll enjoy. Aimed towards young adults, there is nothing really objectionable in it in regards to content or language.
