The Force is strong in 12-year-old Anakin Skywalker - so strong that the Jedi Council, despite misgivings, entrusted young Obi-Wan Kenobi with the mission of training him to become a Jedi Knight. Obi-Wan, like his slain master, Qui-Gon, believes Anakin may be the Chosen One, the Jedi destined to bring balance to the Force. But first Obi-Wan must help his undisciplined apprentice, who still bears the scars of slavery, to find his own balance.

Dispatched to the mysterious planet of Zonama Sekot, source of the fastest ships in the galaxy, Obi-Wan and Anakin are swept up in a swirl of deadly intrigue and betrayal. They sense a disturbance in the Force unlike any they have encountered before. It seems there are more secrets on Zonama Sekot than meet the eye. But the search for those secrets will threaten the bond between Obi-Wan and Anakin - and bring the troubled young apprentice face-to-face with his deepest fears and his darkest destiny.

Listener Opinions

    " I can't remember how exactly we ended up with this book and I've never really gotten into Star Wars books, but it was an interesting read. I will say this, this book gives a far better look into Anakin's struggle with the force and his ability to control it than any of the movies. He's still confident and reckless, but just not sooooo whiney. You can actually feel a little sympathy for little Darth Vader as he struggles to not be overwhelmed by the power of the force. "

    " Really good....introduces Tarkin "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 1/6/2014

    " meh. Very good imagination. Mush different than the past few books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Walt | 1/3/2014

    " Heavy on description and slow on action. The concept of a sentient planet is a little too moralistic for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wesley | 12/7/2013

    " Embarrassingly bad book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 11/27/2013

    " This was a fine book. Pretty standard Star Wars for the post ep 1/pre ep 2 era. Nothing super special, but good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Seth | 11/15/2013

    " My favorite part of this book was that it ended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bobby | 10/15/2013

    " Good filler story about Anikan's younger years. The relationship between he & Obi Wan that is portrayed it unpacked really well. I like the young Tarkin as well and his scheming so early on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Timothy | 6/7/2013

    " If you have not read the new jedi order series yet read this before you do. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daniel Domenech | 6/11/2012

    " It was good, but i found it a bit dull and unreadable at times. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Claire | 4/27/2012

    " Readable "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 4/16/2012

    " Good basic sci/fi Star Wars fiction. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Merida | 5/11/2011

    " The book was okay...pretty dull and nothing new where the characters are concerned. They were very obviously retconning with the planet, though, which I always dislike. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 2/23/2011

    " AAH! I FOUND IT! I've been looking for this book forever. I read it when it first came out in 2000 (mind you I was 10) and I remember liking it a lot. Wow. I love Goodreads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bobby | 12/28/2010

    " Good filler story about Anikan's younger years. The relationship between he & Obi Wan that is portrayed it unpacked really well. I like the young Tarkin as well and his scheming so early on. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessie | 8/25/2010

    " I don't remember this book too well, which means it wasn't impressive, but it also wasn't horrible. I think I liked some of the premise, but as with so many things in this era, it's just a sidetrip to the rest of the SW universe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michel | 8/23/2010

    " An enjoyable read. I always felt as though it's "chugging along" and while it sets up the philosophy for an entire EU books series (possible the biggest one yet) I would have liked to see it go more in depth about the nature of the Force, taking a more philosophical aspect. "

    " The book was okay...pretty dull and nothing new where the characters are concerned. They were very obviously retconning with the planet, though, which I always dislike. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Travis | 10/22/2009

    " Not bad story set between movies one and two of the second trilogy. Bit heavy handed with the foreshadowing and yet again, the Jedi are presented as fairly clueless and ineffectual.

    Decent job on the relationship between Obi-wan and Anakin, but that wasn't enough to save this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 6/20/2009

    " Another prequel that I quickly lost interest in. I'd like to try this one again sometime, but I was too excited for Mindor, Outcast, and Omen to really bother getting into it at this time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Walt | 2/19/2009

    " Heavy on description and slow on action. The concept of a sentient planet is a little too moralistic for me. "
