The final book in the Jedi Apprentice series is here.
Obi-Wan and his Master, Qui-Gon, tackle a mysterious mission that revolves around the followers of the Sith -- and a search for the Holocron, a mystical object that enables its user to have great powers. The Holocron has been hidden under a planet's dangerous ocean for many years, and all who have gone after it failed. When Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are sent to retrieve it so that it doesn't fall into the wrong hands, the mission is still left unsolved. Ten years later, when Qui-Gon has been killed and Obi-Wan has Anakin for his apprentice, once again the threat of the Dark Side arises. The followers of the Sith are apparently still waiting for the chance when they will have their hands on the Holocron. Obi-Wan and Anakin have to stop the Dark Side from winning. The future of all darkness in the galaxy rests in their mission now. Jedi Apprentice: Special Edition #2: The Followers is Jude Watson's final chapter in the Jedi Apprentice series, but thankfully the story continues into the new Jedi Quest books. It's a stunning and thrilling conclusion, and most memorable of all is the haunting last paragraph on the final page of this, the end of the Jedi Apprentice series.
Anakin and Obi-wan series??!!
I love this book it's so good. I can't wait to see SW2. Also I wonder if Jude Waston will come up with the young Obi-wan and Anni series. Hope so. That will be so cool if she does. Well back to the book. The book was exciting, it held you in suspence. The sith and everything. But it's so sad no more Obi-wna and Qui-gon books, I love them. Sob. Well sorry it's just a depressing thought.
A farewell to the old, and welcome to the new!
While not the best in the series, this one was definitely "worthy". A different sort of plot than the usual, which was refreshing, and while the character developments were less than usual, I didn't really feel that this detracted from the story at all. This book begins with an eighteen (or thereabouts) year old Obi-Wan still apprenticed to Qui-Gon several years before Episode 1. The Jedi Council has recieved disturbing rumers of a possible Sith Holocron, floating around somewhere, and they immediately dispatch Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan to find it at all costs. To avoid spoiling the story, I'll just say that almost nothing goes as planned, and the story abrubtly skips forward ten years; when a much older Obi-Wan now trains his own apprentice, thirteen year old Anakin Skywalker. To be honest, this was the first book I've read so far where I found myself liking and relating to Anakin's character at all. Most of the other books have portrayed him either as a whiny baby, or just your basic budding darksider. In this book, however, I could finally see him as a real person, much, much cooler as a teenager than a little kid. Anyway, if you've been following the series than this one is a must. Here's to the new Jedi Quest series being as good as Jedi Apprentice was!
