NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An unexpected offer threatens the bond between Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi as the two Jedi navigate a dangerous new planet and an uncertain future in the first canon Star Wars novel to take place before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.

A Jedi must be a fearless warrior, a guardian of justice, and a scholar in the ways of the Force. But perhaps a Jedi’s most essential duty is to pass on what they have learned. Master Yoda trained Dooku; Dooku trained Qui-Gon Jinn; and now Qui-Gon has a Padawan of his own. But while Qui-Gon has faced all manner of threats and danger as a Jedi, nothing has ever scared him like the thought of failing his apprentice.

Obi-Wan Kenobi has deep respect for his Master, but struggles to understand him. Why must Qui-Gon so often disregard the laws that bind the Jedi? Why is Qui-Gon drawn to ancient Jedi prophecies instead of more practical concerns? And why wasn’t Obi-Wan told that Qui-Gon is considering an invitation to join the Jedi Council—knowing it would mean the end of their partnership? The simple answer scares him: Obi-Wan has failed his Master.

When Jedi Rael Averross, another former student of Dooku, requests their assistance with a political dispute, Jinn and Kenobi travel to the royal court of Pijal for what may be their final mission together. What should be a simple assignment quickly becomes clouded by deceit, and by visions of violent disaster that take hold in Qui-Gon’s mind. As Qui-Gon’s faith in prophecy grows, Obi-Wan’s faith in him is tested—just as a threat surfaces that will demand that Master and apprentice come together as never before, or be divided forever.

This book was better than I thought it was going to be. I don't know what I was originally expecting but I was pleasantly surprised.

Way too many useless sound effects. Terrible use of both music and sound effects.

Solid story. Kept moving where some Star Wars novels get a little slow. You do need to be a little of a geek to appreciate some of the back story but it’s not over the top. Narration is very good. Only complaint is consistent with all Star Wars audiobooks—too much sound production. A little background noise is fine, especially during battles. But the constant droid noise and beeps and nonsense is too much. Some of the more important dialogue exchanges are ruined by unnecessary nonsense that doesn’t help create a Star Wars experience

I'm enjoying this background story of count dooku and qui gon gin and obi wan Kenobi. I find it amusing though that even though this story is set years before the events of the phantom menace however at different points in the story it sounds like tie fighters flying through. Lol all good though.

What could have been a great addition to qui gon and obi wans back story turned into a angry relationship between Master and apprentice, and random adult themes thrown in. This book takes away the likeabilty of the duo, and that's a negative.

Great to learn more Obi-Wan backstory, and of his relationship with Qui-Gon. Also, havng seen Rise of Skywalker, can report that a prophetic element in this book describes a plot point in the film.
