    One thought on “The Snare”

    1. This is the first book in a series, and it was a really fun read! Great for those wanting to read some Star Wars literature, but don't want to read a longggggg book. It did end on a bit of a cliffhanger, but the first four or five books are already out. Look for it in the classroom library soon! :)

    2. Not a bad addition to the story but didn't offer as much as the first one. This book has changed my opinion about kowakian monkey lizards, though :)

    3. Not just for kidsEven though it's clearly written for kids, the story itself was fast paced and enjoyable. Not too short and not too long. As much as I like reading, I personally don't like long reads anyway. It gets right to the point and sets your up for the next book, which I plan on reading as well. I can actually picture these stories being a live action or animated tv show. The characters are not dumbed down but rather toned down just a smidge for kids while still remaining believable and [...]

    4. This picks up right after the previous book (the #0 prequel), but you don't need it to know what's going on. Overall it's a bit predictable and not very deep. The droid, CR-8R, has grown on me. He's fussy in the C-3P0 mold but with a super sarcastic biting edge. The book ends on a cliffhanger (on purpose again?) which is super annoying. I will say that the cover art for this series is A+. Love the vibrant colors.

    5. I'm still not feeling the Star Wars Saga connection with these Wild Space junior novels and will stop with this one. With only slight reference changes, these stories could easily be any other generic science fiction story. The compelling nature of the Star Wars Saga is missing. Even though Vader's hologram shows up in the last chapter, it's a purely mechanical appearance.

    6. This is a really fun read. It's set in Wild Space where Imperial presence is still a threat, and two young kids are on the run from the Empire, while trying to find their parents. Milo and Lina's parents are mapmakers and the Empire wants their info.This book does a great job of introducing great action scenes, unique planets and aliens and the bravery of to young siblings.

    7. Read this with my 12 & 9 year old boys , just enough world building and character development for the younger audience and my boys thoroughly enjoyed it and are looking forward to the next one, adds in a good amount of humour and some Rebels connections to keep them amused and I have to admit I quite enjoyed it too ;)

    8. Let's make it clear: this is excellent for kids. For adults, however, it's hard to accept it as canon. Two under-10 kids being able to skip imperial blockades and Vader himself caring about two escaping kids is a little too much to accept as happening in the same universe as the rest of the canon (even if we do have Ewoks defeating the Empire).

    9. Dicen que son libros infantiles, pero no es tan así y, además, yo los estoy disfrutando como loca.Esta segunda parte me gustó muchísimo más y espero con ansias poder leer los siguientes libros muy pronto.

    10. 3.5 starsThere was some sibling squabbling, but at the end of the day, Milo and Lina love one another and will work hard to take care of each other.I liked their resourcefulness and quick thinking.

    11. That was a pretty fun ride! Might only continue with this series if my library gets the others in, though.

    12. This is a whole lot better than book #0. They should have been one story 0 & 1 together, like a long intro story to kick off the series.

    13. Kind of a basic Star Wars children's story, but at least it's original content and not yet another novelization!

    14. 3.5.So much better than the first one. Action packed and full of adventures, I think this is perfect for kids.

    15. Not bad little chapter book for SW but if you really want to have some fun read the Jedi Apprentice books about young Kenobi. Not canon but really entertaining. Think Harry Potter meets Star Wars.

    16. Definitely not boringAs exciting as a star wars novel can get without light sabers. Takes place after Revenge of the Sith obviously, not a full moment looking forward to the next one.

    17. This is very much what I would expect from a STAR WARS novel for young readers. Written to a literacy and violence level that's easily as good or better than the comic series coming out from Marvel we have a quick adventure story in novelette form with some fun banter and a few thrills. The best 45-60 minute STAR WARS read you'll find as an adult.

    18. When their parents get kidnapped by the Empire, Milo and Lina Graf must set out to rescue them. With the help of their monkey-lizard Morq and their family droid, CR-8R, the two must set sail with their space ship, Whisper Bird to Thune to ask an old friend for help in order to stop Captain Korda, their parents’ kidnapper. Will they be able to rescue their parents?The story is well developed for being so short. Its characters are likable and realistic. Their droid and monkey-lizard add a lot of [...]

    19. I was really surprised at how much I liked this one. Of course it is just a book for children and it takes some time to adjust to its simple and stereotypical characterizations, but once you accept it for what it is, it turns out to be a very pleasant read with a very gripping finale.Make no mistake, this is no Luceno or Zahn but it has all a new canon book needs to have: The Rising and oppressive evil Empire? Check. Brave and rebellious protagonists in way over their heads? Check. Cyborg Imperi [...]

    20. I got this title and #0: The Escape as an ARC at ALA this year. It's a fun chapter book adventure series set in the Star Wars universe in the time between the Clone Wars and A New Hope. Siblings Lina and Milo Graf, their pet lizard-monkey Morq, and their family's trusted (and cranky) droid, CR-8R (aka "Crater") set off to find their explorer/cartographer parents, kidnapped by the Empire for their data and their skills. But the Empire is after Lina and Milo, too, and they have to try to stay one [...]

    21. This is a fun tale set in that galaxy far far away. Definitely more for the younger crowd than something like Jason Fry's work (or Jude Watson's series for that matter), but I still found it enjoyable as an older reader. It is a predictable story but a light romp that isn't unwelcome in my opinion.

    22. This book is the first in the series and is an action packed, fun story with brand new characters from the Star Wars universe. It's easy to follow, without needing to know much about Star Wars with great illustrations to accompany it. Looking forward to reading the rest!

    23. My eight year old loved it . He was able to read this on his own bar a few words and asked for more.Serious praise indeed for a reluctant reader.
