Read an excerpt from Decide Your Destiny: #3 Tethan Battle Adventure
It's a bright, sunny day and you and your best friend, Peder, are running through the tangled jungles of Teth pretending General Grievous is chasing you.
"He's behind you, Peder!" you yell, laughing as Peder executes a couple of inexpert rolls along the ground to shake his pursuer.
"I've managed to lose him!" he calls back over his shoulder. "But he's wielding his four lightsabers inches from your skull and is ready to slice through it."
You let out a playful shriek as the imaginary Grievous lops your head from your shoulders and you collapse, screaming in pretend agony.
As you lie there getting your breath back and looking up into the sky, you think you see a flash of silver. You rub your eyes and look again. You did see something; it looks like a ship!
"Peder!" you call, jumping to your feet. "Peder, did you see that?"
Twenty meters away, Peder is staring up at the sky; yes, he saw it.
"Did that look likeó" but before you can finish your sentence, a small fleet of gunships flies directly overhead.
"Republic ships!" says Peder excitedly. "And they look like they're heading toward the mesa and the B'omarr monk monastery!"
KA-BOOOOOM! A huge explosion rips through the air and you and Peder hit the ground, even though you're well out of the range of danger.
"Let's go have a look," says Peder, getting to his feet and dusting dirt and leaves from his tunic. "This isn't a pretend battle, it's the real thing! They're firing laser cannons! The gunships must've landed at the base of the cliff. Come on, we have to go and see!"
Of course you want to go and watch the Jedi battle the Separatists (for who else could they be fighting?) but you could both be killed. Is that a risk you're willing to take?
"There must be a safer way to see what's going on without running into the thick of a battle," you say thoughtfully.
"Well, if you're not interested," says Peder, giving you a withering look, "I'll go alone." And with that he's off, sprinting through the trees in the direction of the towering mesa.
