The Mark of the Crown was really an extrordinary book in the Jedi Apprentice series. The same great characters are back and are on another adventure. The plot kept my attention through the entire book. For all who like the series or are new to it, this is definitely one you'll like!

Jude Watson continues to write intereszing stories about the adventures of Qui-Gon Jinn and his young Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi. He also writes about their developing relationship, with both men longing for connection and not realizing that they are coser than they think!
In this instalment the two Jedi are sent to Gala, where the dying queen is bringing democratic elections to her planet, and her son is not at all happy about it.
This is a well-written and interesting story in this continuing series.

It is a great book but Obi-Wan doesn't have a good bond with his master like a reader before me said. You'll have read more of the apprentice books to find out if it inproves(I know). But it has drama, a little suspence, and some treachery.

Format: Paperback
After their adventures on the planet of Phindar, Master Qui-Gon Jinn and Apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi again make their way to 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 everything does not seem to be all that simple. The Queen Veda is dying, her angry son is conspiring to win over the elections to maintain his rule as the throne's heir. And then of course the Queen shocks them with this news; Prince Beju is not the true heir, Elan of the hill people is! Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan must find a way to conserve peace on the planet and to find the true heir bearing the Mark of the Crown.
One of my favorites books in the entire Jedi Apprentice series! There's plenty of action and adventure, suspense and excitement. 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. Their beginning is far from simple and all smooth-sailings, which would be pretty monotonous if it was. Though the books are said for ages 9-12, like many other reviewers I agree that the Jedi Apprentice Series are for anybody. Extremely well-written, the emotions, thoughts, and feelings of the main characters are very well put down into words.

The Mark of the crown is one of my top five favorites. It starts when the rulers of planet of Gala decide to change its goverment. The queen is dying and her son is angry that she shifted the monarch to a republic. So the son runs for one of the canidates. The Jedi, (Qui-gon and his apprentice Obi-wan,) are there to make the elections go smoothly, but the Jedi fear that there is some sort of connection between the hill people who vowed never to come to the capital of Gala and their leader, Elan, might be the true heir to the throne.

Amist rioting in the streets, the feared hill people, bandits, politicians and betrayal in the palace the jedi must maintain the peace. This book picks up where The Hidden Past left us and keeps you hooked threw twist and turn till the final revalation. Its a quick read but highly recommended.

The Mark Of The Crown is a great addition to the Jedi Apprentice series, and as it is one of the first of the series it is not one to be missed. Prince Beju is the heir to his mother's throne, a mother who is dying and weakening day by day. She wants to leave over a legacy for her world, and she fears that her son will darken the throne. He is conspiring a master plan to take over everything, and his own mother, the Queen, is powerless to stop him. Young Obi Wan Kenobi and his Master, Qui Gon Jinn, must help the dying queen and find another who bears the Mark Of The Crown, a sign that detects who the true heir to the throne will be. Thus begins a dangerous journey to find the true heir, while conspiracies and troubles lurk in every corner. I enjoyed this book of the series very much and I think it's one of the best so far.

Well, the first thing I should say is, this is a great book. I really enjoyed it, and I thought it had incredible character development and good scenery discriptions. It is very interesting to find out what Obi-Wan was like as a little kid. (Well, thirteen at least) And in truth he is a lot like any other kid, a bit uncertain, insecure at times, and it is also compelling to see how he tries so hard to please Qui-Gon, but he never seems to. What he doesn't understand is that Qui-Gon is just trying to protect him from ending up like Xanotos, which is a kind thing to do, but for Obi-Wan a bit frustrating. Anyway, in this book, Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon continue their original mission to Gala before they were sidetracked on Phindaar. When they hear the dying queen's sad story, they begin to wonder if there could be another heir besides her greedy son Beju. Qui-Gon goes to find this person, while Obi-Wan stays in the palace pretending that Qui-Gon is still there and he discovers some very interesting evidence about the queens's condition... That's all I'll say for the benefit of those who havn't read it yet, and I do encourage you to read it, though it would make more sense if you had read the other three first. I would recommend this series to any Star Wars fan, whether you had seen Episode 1 or not, since frankly, I didn't think it was as good as the other Star Wars movies and this series takes place years before and really doesn't have anything to do with it anyway. :-)
