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.

A must read!!!
Just started reading after the book was released and so far there was not a single moment which disappointed me. This book is really well written. Even the alien language is on point. (Mild Spoiler) Plus the book will keep you attached.
I suggest that everyone read this. Also if you want a guide on reading the new canon novels, my advice is this: As long as you avoid reading <Lords of the Sith> and The <Aftermath> Trilogy you should be fine (these don’t make any sense). A good thing is that now you no longer see these authors write any more Star Wars canon novels so I don’t expect any problems with the new canon.
If you liked Obi-Wan in the prequel trilogy like I did, this book is for you.
Haven’t read it yet, but it’s Claudia
Two of my favorite characters (shut up, my life my choices) plus this author .... I can’t wait until the 16th.
We all know it’s gonna be good. It’s Claudia Gray.
