Star Wars Rebels: The Inquisitor’s Trap
Young Ezra is being trained in the ways of the Force by Jedi Kanan Jarrus, but both teacher and student are frustrated. So when news arrives that Jedi Master Luminara Unduli is still alive, the Rebels immediately begin planning to infiltrate the prison where she’s being held. What dangers await them at the prison? Will they be successful? Will Luminara prove to be a better instructor for Ezra than Kanan?
The Inquisitor’s Trap introduces an ominous new villain to the Star Wars: Rebels universe, and his debut is suitably impressive. Although the story moves briskly, it offers plenty of strong moments for both Kanan and Ezra. I suspect, however, that even the younger readers for whom the book is intended won’t be surprised by the events in the story. (Titling it “The Inquisitor’s Trap” doesn’t really help matters.)
That being said, the vivid, well-rendered art is engaging, bringing both the gaunt Inquisitor and our intrepid heroes to vibrant life. The stickers are similarly charming, though I’m surprised none of the other Rebels warranted a sticker. (Sabine or Zeb I can understand, since they’re bit players in this story. But I’ve got about a dozen stormtroopers, and Ezra doesn’t merit a single one?)
