What will happen next?

I enjoyed this book because I love all the adventure and I like all the futuristic things in the book, such as the light saber and space ships that travel in out of space through galaxies. Also, I have watched the movie for all the other movies in this series and I just love that the author can think of all this imaginative stuff.

I would recommend this book to a child aged from 5 to about 15 because anyone under 5 most likely wouldn’t get what’s going on in the book and lots of violence is a part of the series. Also, boys would more likely like this book than girls because of all the fighting and shooting which boys tend to like.
