This is part of a series but this can be read as a stand alone book. This series is geared for young children. In this one, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan visit a planet that has known war for a very long time. Their mission is to rescue a Jedi that is being held prisoner.
The books in this series are quick reads and likable. This book might be my least favorite so far though. The highlight of this book was the last page and the cliffhanger. It surprised me and I look forward to the next book. The problem w This is part of a series but this can be read as a stand alone book.
The problem with this was the journey to get to this point. It never felt like it was earned because the journey was way too quick. It seemed like the author just decided to put our two main characters in this conflict without building up to it.
If there were hints along the way I would have felt totally different. This is not the best offering from this series and the reason might be its target audience.
A conflict of this nature needed to be fleshed out more and not rushed. That being said, it does set up for the next book which I am really looking forward to. View 2 comments. Mar 02, Jerry rated it really liked it.
Many teens and adults find juvenile chapter books to be childish and not worth their time, but I think right many of my bibliophile friends would agree with me when I say that the former group of people is simply missing out.
Jedi Apprentice , an eighteen-book Star Wars saga that takes place before The Phantom Menace , is a perfect example of why. The story is engaging, and it opens a window into the beloved character of Obi-Wan Kenobi, as well as his Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn well before either of Many teens and adults find juvenile chapter books to be childish and not worth their time, but I think right many of my bibliophile friends would agree with me when I say that the former group of people is simply missing out.
The story is engaging, and it opens a window into the beloved character of Obi-Wan Kenobi, as well as his Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn well before either of them met their tragic ends. If there is one problem, it's with Jude Watson's writing style; although it's tolerable, it doesn't have the crispness and flair of beloved children's authors such as Judy Blume, Roald Dahl, or Rick Riordian.
If you can forgive that, this is definitely worth reading. Sep 12, Heidi Lil' Chip rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. This book is definitely my favorite!
But I am afraid that many have seen terrible wars that scar the memories of each generation. It has always been. But now a third party has surfaced, the children of all the warriors, who want both sides to stop the fighting and to focus on peace. Despite the fact that the Jedi are not supposed to get involved in the actual conflict, Obi-Wan feels the overwhelming need to join the teenagers in their quest for peace. What is this horseshit that I just read?!?!
This book The storyline was good, very emotional and intense, but the way the two main characters were depicted was really just awful. This may or not be biased on my part, because I happen to love Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan and can sometimes be a bit sensitive regarding the way they are portrayed. I know this series is supposed to highlight Obi-Wan's character and illuminate how he was when he was younger compared to the Jedi we know him as from The Clone Wars and later, but this is such a huge difference in personalities that it doesn't even feel like the same character.
The Obi-Wan I know and love would never act as if he didn't give a fig for the Jedi Order, or absolutely break Qui-Gon's heart the way he did. And watching Qui-Gon's pain and feelings of guilt over this change in his padawan made me want to throw things. It was just too sad for me to handle. I understand that people change over time, espescially from when they are young, but come on.
This is just too much for me to swallow and made the entire thing seem very unbelievable. If you know me, you know that I very rarely rate a book with one or two stars unless it was just horrendous. Sums this one up pretty well. View all 6 comments. Jun 02, S. It shows how bad Qui-Gon is at being anyone's Master at the time, he gets better and how difficult Obi-Wan finds it to be his Padawan.
They are both struggling with trust and communication; I don't think they ever really learn how to communicate, they just use the Force as a stopgap to make up for the lack.
Seriously, the Jedi need therapists to learn how to talk to each other and how to interact with the world at large. Mar 07, Meredith Miyake rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy , sci-fi , adventure , children-s , star-wars. Definitely one of my favorites, if rather grim and full of feels. I gotta say, though: Obi-wan is 13 and so has some excuse, but Qui-gon, you have some serious trust issues that need addressing. Somebody give this man a hug, seriously. Mar 29, Natasha rated it it was amazing.
This book provided me with a bit of information about Obi-Wan that shocked me! I can't say or it would spoil it all, but I can say you should read it! You'll be amazed!

A generation later, he and his own apprentice, Anakin Skywalker , discover the cult still exists and it has plans for revenge that threatens the hearts of the Jedi.
