5.0 out of 5 stars Action Packed Jedi Dec 11 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Star Wars Jedi Quest: The Way Of The Apprentice is an action and adventure book. It has light saber battles, droid killing and ships blowing up.
This book is about a boy named Anikan. He is a padawan. His master is Obi-Wan Kanobi (a jedi knight). He and three other jedi teams need to go to another planet because there is a toxic cloud killing all the creatures on this planet. Anikan needs to work with his rival to save the planet.
If you like adventures with action, this is the book for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars TRAIL is Book 2 and begins the continuing story. July 27 2003
Format:Paperback
This a review for Trail of the Jedi, TOTJ. Trail is the 2nd book in the Jedi Quest series and I am reviewing both the Unabridged audio casette and the paperback.
In TOTJ Obi-Wan feels that he are Anakin are not as close as they should be. So he plans a 10 day exercise on a very sparsely inhabited planet where he and Anakin must work together in a game of hind and go seek with an experienced Jedi Master.
Of course things start to go wrong right away in the hunt. Also, Anakin and Obi-Wan do not understand each other. In the end they both learn a little something about each other, but they also learn that someone want to kill them. The hunt is resolved in this book, but the Identity of the killer is not and will be continued in future books of this series.
The audio book is extremely well done by veteran SW reader Davis. The story here is defineately simplified for younger readers, but for completists like me, Watson dioes a nice job exploring the interactions between Ben and the future Vader.
In the first book Anakin learns to cooperate with a fellow Padawan Ferus (Padawan of Siri Tachi) who is well liked by his fellow Padawans and also a good leader. The continuing curiosity in any Prequel book is how Anakin and Obi-Wan loss each other such that Anakin becomes Darth Vader
Jude Watson does advance the character study of Anakin Skywalker.
This is a book written for 9 to 12 year olds, but I enjoyed Jude Watson handling of Anakin. I am pleased that the decision was made to put this book on unabridged Audio cassettes. I have almost every Star Wars audio book ever made up to NJO Star by Star. Davis is an experienced SW reader and does a great job.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its all about ANAKIN. July 16 2003
Format:Paperback
Anakin is about 14 years old here so this story is -27 BNH on the timeline. Of course, the story is all about Anakin. Where Anakin is only 12 in the Rogue Planet mission and still acts more like a child, here he is 14 and wants to exert more influence in the decision-making. Anakin makes his first friend, because they share a love of machines and ships, Tru. The story is dumbed down of course, but not bad. For reasons that are only to enhance the story, the masters leave the Padawan's behind, finding themselves cutoff. With the masters gone, the Padawan's must work together to solve problems.
Anakin learns to cooperate with a fellow Padawan Ferus (Padawan of Siri Tachi) who is well liked by his fellow Padawan's and also a good leader. The continuing curiosity in any "Prequel" book is how Anakin becomes Darth Vader, and how Vader does kill off all the Jedi. Jude Watson does advance the character study of Anakin Skywalker.
Windu hasn't gone stupid yet, or at least Palpatine hasn't started messing with the Jedi yet. Hence, Windu sends 4 masters and their Padawan's to a system with 2 inhabited planets where a plague or virus has broken out on one. One of my theories of the fall of the Jedi is Windu's failure to adequately deal with crises. Here is an example where Windu sent significant force to deal with a crisis.
This is a book written for 9 to 12 year olds, but I enjoyed Jude Watson handling of Anakin. I am pleased that the decision was made to put this book on unabridged Audio cassettes. I have almost every Star Wars audio book ever made up to NJO Star by Star. Davis is an experienced SW reader and does a great job.
