Heir to the Jedi by Kevin Hearne
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Heir to the Jedi, by Kevin Hearne, is the third Star Wars book in the "rebooted" expanded universe; where everything going forward now is approved by a story group and will all be official stories.
Heir is set shortly after the original Star Wars movie and is told in first-person from Luke's point of view. I normally don't enjoy first-person POV stories, but this one didn't bother me. I found Luke to be much better at putting his thoughts to paper than trying to express himself verbally to his uncle.
Luke and R2 are given a mission, with a few side missions, and along the way he learns a little bit about himself and a little bit more about using the Force.
If you want to get to know Luke Skywalker when he was fresh from destroying the Death Star, give Heir to the Jedi a read.
