It's coming 27th August and it's set to be one of the Star Wars events of the year. John Jackson Millers Kenobi is set to cast the diplomat in a totally new light, explaining how he came to be known as crazy old hermit 'Ben'.
The greatest hero in the galaxy faces his toughest challenge yet: He must stop being Obi-Wan-and become Crazy Old Ben. For fans of movie-related novels like Darth Plagueis!
In this original novel set between the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV A New Hope, Obi-Wan Kenobi comes to the aid of the residents of Tatooine during his exile. But he struggles with his new mission when he realizes that protecting Luke Skywalker-the last hope of the galaxy-means setting aside his compassion and his Jedi warrior training, for the future of the galaxy lies not with Obi-Wan Kenobi, but with a mystical desert recluse known only by the name of Crazy Old Ben.
FIRST OF A KIND: This is the first adult Star Wars novel focused on Obi-Wan Kenobi during this time period, when he is beginning his “exile” on Tatooine in order to watch over the infant Luke Skywalker.
