Ten Years Later, Anakin and Amidala Find Each Other Again
A review of Cloudy Symbols of High Romance

By : Valeda Kor

Anakin Skywalker is an angry young man in "Cloudy Symbols of High Romance." Angel of Iego's version of Obi-Wan Kenobi's Padawan is disrespectful, churlish and whiny. Of course, this only means that Queen Amidala falls more in love with him by the minute. And since someone else is vying for her affections, it's interesting to see how the two of them get out of this predicament.

Very witty and fast-paced, there's no overdrawn, lengthy passages of description getting in the reader's way here. The sense of humor the author displays is infectious; smiles will definitely be in order, and probably a long guffaw or two, especially when you read the lecture titles that Anakin has to endure as his Jedi training continues. Readers will feel drawn to every character in this story as they exhibit faults and foibles that are definitely human and definitely recognizable.

The joy of reading this story is the dialog exchanges between the young queen and the younger Padawan, whereby they flirt and argue and try to resist the attraction that both of them feel towards each other. The author has very convincingly captured two young people doing what young people do when they find themselves far away from authority, affairs of state and overbearing Jedi masters. And the dark clouds forming at the ending of the story, foreshadowing the Star Wars storylines that we all know, shouldn't dampen your enthusiasm for this elegant tale of young love, and young lovers.
