Anakin Skywalker begins to question his Master's commitment. He knows Obi-Wan never chose him as his apprentice, but rather it was the dying wish of the late Qui-Gon. Obi-Wan, too, has his doubts. The two had best not concentrate on their anxieties, and instead focus on a deadly group of bounty hunters out to capture the Jedi.

This story occurs approximately 27 years before the Battle of Yavin.

Review by Bones, UK, 2011:

"The Jedi Quest series continues as Anakin and Obi-Wan have to fend off a group of bounty hunters. This plot is mostly irrelevant, only becoming important towards the end of the book when future plot points are set up. For the most part, the book is about relationships as with the first book, The Way of the Apprentice. The difference here is that it is not Anakin's relationships with other Padawans but his relationship with Obi-Wan.
"Some of the better parts of the Jedi Apprentice series dealt with the rapport that existed between Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. Here, Watson continues her ability to examine characters. Anakin remains incorrigible in his impatience and Obi-Wan finds himself having to shake off some of the shadows of his own Master and accept that he cannot teach as Qui-Gon did because Anakin is a very different Padawan. Also, the link made by setting the story on Ragoon-6 was a nice touch, as well as the cameo at the end made by Dexter.
"The down side to this book has to be the bounty hunters themselves. It is unfortunate that they are merely a backdrop for the story and are, therefore, bland and uninteresting. The two that the Jedi interact with the most during the story are pointless and irritating and don't really add anything to the experience.
"Overall, some good introspection - enjoyable but not outstanding."

Rating: 3 / 5
