Trioculous proclaims he is Emperor Palpatine’s son and the Grand Moths declare he is the new ruler of the Empire. The search is on for the glove of Darth Vader which empire prophets have said whoever has it will be the new leader of the Empire. Trioculous needs it to ensure his power and rule.
Meanwhile Whalodons are being hunted to extinction on Calamari. Admiral Ackbar, Luke C3PO, and R2-D2 go to Calamari to investigate Trioculous’s plot and also stumble onto this environmental disaster.
I read this book with my now 10-year old 4th grade son. His review is that it is “good” and that he “liked everything.” The book had good dialogue, and Kile helped it along by using a R2-D2 toy to provide the dialogue whenever R2-D2 spoke. Kile thought it was hilarious how C3PO always stated “we’re doomed” in pretty much every scenario.
Overall Star Wars: The Glove of Darth Vader had a good mix of humor and adventure. This book is no longer part of the canon with the new movie out, but Kile didn’t seem to mind and really enjoyed it. We are now currently reading book two of this series.
