The Last of the Jedi is a series of young adult science fiction novels written by Jude Watson from 2005 to 2008. The series is set in the fictional Star Wars Universe, in the time period between the end of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and a few years prior to Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. This series follows the life of Obi-Wan Kenobi, following the events of Revenge of the Sith until he finds an ex-Padawan, Ferus Olin. From here to the end the series focuses on a little band of surviving Jedi.


A few months after the events in Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan Kenobi finds himself settling into his exile on Tatooine. In between guarding baby Luke Skywalker, he finds himself becoming accustomed to the life of a hermit, regretting the loss of Anakin Skywalker and brooding about the Jedi lives that were lost. But when he hears that the former Jedi apprentice Ferus Olin is alive and a wanted fugitive on the planet Bellassa, he feels compelled to help save him. He eventually goes and finds himself alone, without backup, and facing the scrutiny of the newly formed Empire.
