Ryder Windham brings a faithful representation of the prequel canon that takes you through the life of Anakin Skywalker. You get to relive Episode(s) 1-3, albeit in a summarized form as the book is barely over 200 pages. The story starts off with a prelude where we see the Sith Lord Darth Vader contemplating. Throughout this book, the normal linear time of events are mixed with interludes of Darth Vader considering things in his future state. It is almost as if Vader is remembering his childhood and key events in his life.

The story is rather fast-paced and again, the space is limited and this book seems to be written with a younger audience in mind. Key events are told from the perspective of Anakin throughout his life. We get stories such as Anakin’s work with Watto and his podracing, the time he saw Qui-Gon engage with Darth Maul and his inner feelings for Padme. Since the story is told from the perspective of Anakin, there is a lot of the Star Wars story itself that is not present in this story. An addition to the normal Star Wars story, Anakin has an inner dialogue throughout the story so you get an idea of what he was thinking while the iconic scenes from the movies are retold. I found myself picturing the movie scenes while reading.

If you’re a Star Wars Legends fan, you will probably be disappointed. The writing in comparison is shallow and doesn’t really provide any new information. That being said, we should not really hold that against the book, it is still in my view a faithful representation of the canon and a fairly entertaining read. (And as I mentioned, the book seems to be written for a younger audience.)

While there isn’t really anything new, the writing does paint an interesting picture. If you recall after Obi-Wan battles Darth Vader on Mustafar and defeats him, Vader is left to burn alive. Darth Sidious finds him and takes him to a hospital. We see in Episode 3 that Vader is clearly in pain and who can blame him? The descriptions in the book however make it even more clear. In order to preserve as many midichlorians as they could, they did not use any anesthesia. This means that on top of Vader having his legs and left arm cut off and his body burned by lava, he felt every little cut and metal prosthetic being inserted into his charred flesh. When you put it that way, it certainly brings a bigger picture to the pain his fall and suit represents.

Overall, a decent retelling of the story of Darth Vader that was very nostalgic of my childhood memories of watching Star Wars and reading various novels related to the Star Wars Universe. ( )
