3.0 out of 5 stars overrated
When I was reading the book I found myself nodding into sleep from the repetitiveness. It dangerously lacked the unique quality the, well, made me like star wars jedi apprentice. I liked the struggle, the plans, and most of all, the unbreakable friendship. Unfortunatly, it added romance, which dilluted the friendship into a pile of gooshy, mushy "Oh god I love her,...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Death of Hope, Sept. 20 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Star Wars Jedi Apprentice #15: The Death Of Hope (Paperback)
This Was a really good book. I really recommend you read it. It really shows the relationship between Tahl and Qui-gon. Tahl gets captured in the book before and this basically tells about their quest to find her. It's really sad but i'd have to say it was one of the best. The only thing is that Qui-Gon doesn't really care that much about Obi-Wan in this one. He's really worried what could happen to Tahl and doesn't really acknowledge his padawan. I really hope you enjoy this book because it'sreally good. Also it's sad, so get your tissues.

Yay! Another successful addition to the Jedi Apprentice series! The character growth throughout this series has been wonderful. Beginning with an unsteady Master/Padawan relationship, then growing to trust and secureness with each other, and now I sense tension again. It just never gets boring! The ending of this one I saw coming, but now curiosity for how all of this will be 'resolved' (for lack of a better word) has got me impatiently waiting for the next installment. Granted, I ALWAYS wait impatiently for the next book ....[....]
Still the best Star Wars books on the market!

4.0 out of 5 stars Role Reversal, Sept. 18 2001
This review is from: The Star Wars Jedi Apprentice #15: The Death Of Hope (Paperback)
Jude Watson has now produced the fifteenth book in this series, and while not all have been perfect, she has created a great collection. This book is a continuation of the Qui-Gon+Tahl relationship. Emotional ties between Jedi are supposed to be against their code, and when the book closes, Qui-Gon's final statement seems to justify the solitary life a Jedi must personally follow. We already know that Anakin will marry against this particular rule, so reading of Qui-Gon's own experience will lay some history for the act.
Obi-Wan continues to grow in maturity and his judgment once again finds conflict with Qui-Gon's. The first time this happened the consequences for the young apprentice were grave. The first time was also ruled by the emotion of the young apprentice, this time he must deal with a Jedi Master that is consumed with his own deep seeded emotions. One of these is fear, and Master Yoda has made precise statements in the past as to where fear may lead.
This book spends a great deal of time with The Jedi in pursuit, using skills we have not seen before, and as always finding clever ways with which to surmount the obstacles they face. The time until, "Attack Of The Clones" is eight months away. I don't know if this series will carry past that point. Whether it does or does not, Jude Watson has plenty to deal with in coming books and the next film.
As always fun, and this is one of the better installments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but not great, Sept. 16 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Star Wars Jedi Apprentice #15: The Death Of Hope (Paperback)
I liked this book, but I hated how in the whole thing, all Qui Gon worries about is Tahl- even when Obi Wan's leg gets smashed under a boulder. And in this book, Obi Wan seems to be doing everything wrong. It starts out with Obi Wan and Qui Gon going to get a probe droid to track Balog and there are tons of battles. It's kinda boring. It's also another cliffhanger. Can't wait until the next book!
