ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: USA Today
The Clone Wars have begun. Battle lines are being drawn throughout the galaxy. With every world that joins the Separatists, the peace guarded by the Jedi Order is slipping through their fingers.
After an explosion devastates Cato Neimoidia, the jewel of the Trade Federation, the Republic is blamed and the fragile neutrality of the planet is threatened. The Jedi dispatch Obi-Wan Kenobi, one of the Order’s most gifted diplomatic minds, to investigate the crime and maintain the balance that has begun to dangerously shift. As Obi-Wan investigates with the help of a heroic Neimoidian guard, he finds himself working against the Separatists who hope to draw the planet into their conspiracy—and senses the sinister hand of Asajj Ventress in the mists that cloak the planet.
Amid the brewing chaos, Anakin Skywalker rises to the rank of Jedi Knight. Despite the mandate that Obi-Wan travel alone—and his former master’s insistence that he listen this time—Anakin’s headstrong determination means nothing can stop him from crashing the party, and bringing along a promising but conflicted youngling.
Once a Padawan to Obi-Wan, Anakin now finds himself on equal—but uncertain—footing with the man who raised him. The lingering friction between them increases the danger for everyone around them. The two knights must learn a new way to work together—and they must learn quickly, to save Cato Neimoidia and its people from the fires of war. To overcome the threat they face they must grow beyond master and apprentice. They must stand together as brothers.
Takes place as Anakin becomes a Jedi. It showed his an Obi-wan’s initial evolution. Chen includes R2-D2 and the astromech’s personality. This is a story focused on the depth and relationship of the two Jedi, although it doesn’t overly spend time focusing on it (through most of the book). It also explain the evolution of the Jedi and Clone Army, in the very early days.
A really fun story about the adventures of Anakin and Obi Wan.
Really fun ride!
Wow! What fun this audiobook was. I love the prequel trilogy with my whole heart and I must say Mike Chen does too! Anakin and Obi-Wan were easily the best part of the book (duh) but the mystery along with all the fun characters was also captivating. Wished these were episodes in the Clone Wars show. 9/10. Must listen for prequel fans.
