Product Description

From Amazon

After surviving the hair-raising events of The Rising Force and The Dark Rival, Jedi Knight Qui-Gon and 13-year-old apprentice Obi-Wan are officially master and Padawan. The two have been sent off on their first mission by Master Yoda, who has given them a boring assignment: overseeing the elections on Gala, where Prince Beju has been forced to submit his promised throne to a popular vote. As usual for our Jedi heroes, though, nothing goes quite as planned--on the way to Gala they get hijacked to Phindar, where the evil Syndicat rules by erasing the memories of its enemies. Faster than the flick of a lightsaber, master and apprentice find themselves back in hot water, struggling to help their Phindarian buddies overthrow the Syndicat crime lords. After a double-cross here and a blaster fight there, the two discover that even Prince Beju is involved in the Syndicat's nefarious schemes. Dark Rival's author Jude Watson (who's also helped Princess Leia and Queen Amidala tell their stories) is back in fine form to continue this excellent series. (Ages 9 to 12) --Paul Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner May 30 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This story is officially the beginning of Qui Gon and Obi Wans master, Padawan relationship. As with just about all of the books in this series, this book comes with a moral, as well as an interesting story. You get the sense of how both Qui Gon, and Obi Wan help each other to grow not only as individuals, but as Jedi knights too. The author does a good job of illustrating the fact that even though Obi Wan and Qui Gon are both loyal members of the Jedi, they both have very different, but accommodating, personality traits.

Obi-Wan has at last become the Padawan of Qui-Gon Jinn and is about to leave on his first official mission. Things couldnt be better, right? Think again! The Jedi are kidnapped and taken to Phindar, a planet ruled by a criminal who has people's memories erased. Things only get worse when one of the Jedis falls into his clutches and is slated for a memory wipe!
This is an exciting story and explores further the developing relationship between Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon. Auxiliary characters are fun, especially the jovial Derida brothers, and Yoda is present in spirit if not body. There are a few battles but violence is not graphic.

5.0 out of 5 stars In my opinion, the best Jedi Apprentice book! April 5 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After the exciting adventures in "The Rising Force" and "The Dark Rival", Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi are now Master and Padawan. They are sent together on their first official mission to the planet of Gala. For many years the planet has been ruled by the Beju-Tallah dynasty but now the queen has decided to give an election for the new ruler. Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon Jinn's mission is to observe to make sure the elections go smoothly. But they never get a chance to even reach the planet as they are hijacked to the planet of Phindar. The Jedis find out that their hijacking had been planned by Obi-Wan's old friend Guerra and his brother Paxxi. For years the evil and cruel Syndicate have been controlling the people through shortages in food, medical supplies, money, and more. And if anyone tries to revolt, they take away they erase their memories. Guerra and Paxxi plead for the Jedis to help them and a band of rebels to stop the Syndicate. At first Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are reluctant to get involved, they change their minds when they find out that somehow the Prince Beju of Gala is somehow involved. But Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan must be very careful... or they might end up having their pasts wiped out forever...
One of my favorites books in the entire Jedi Apprentice series! There's plenty of action and adventure, suspense and excitement. The story doesn't end in this book, continuing in book four, "The Mark of the Crown". Jude Watson has certainly done an astounding job, the plot and story of the book is so unique and interesting and I couldn't put it down! I still enjoy reading the books as much as I did when they first started coming out in the summer of 1999.
This series explains a lot about how Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan first meet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ooooh, talk about COOL! June 12 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is an AWESOME book! As always, the JA series is the coolest! I thought looking into Obi-Wan's past was very interesting, especially since I have such a HUGE crush on Obi-Wan! Some peeps say this book is a little boring, but they obviously haven't read this book very thoroughly! This book never gets boring! You will agree with me once you read this book yourself! PLEASE READ IT!
