Review by Bones, UK, 2011:

"The penultimate book of the Jedi Quest series follows Anakin and Obi-Wan to Coruscant to uncover a plot to discredit the Jedi in the eyes of the Senate. What follows is an unfortunate game of political manipulation and bureaucratic meandering that drags in places.
"The best thing about this book is we get to see the relationship between Anakin and Palpatine whilst still in its infancy. It explains how the two begin a rapport and how Palpatine begins to subtly control Anakin and his thoughts and passions, something that gives their interactions on film more grounding. It also shows how Palpatine's influence begins to break down the relationship that Obi-Wan had finally managed to build with his Padawan.
"It is very satisfying to see here that a few of the minor villains of the series get their just rewards, but it is getting increasingly vexing watching Omega (and now Zan Arbor also) constantly getting away, even if the outcome in this case was very much a foregone conclusion (there is one more book to go in the series - it doesn't take a genius to work out why they weren't caught here).
"The False Peace is everything a penultimate book should be: it wrapped up a few loose ends, set up some points for the next book and built some tension in preparation for a big finale. But the political setting did slow things a touch, despite the various action scenes."

Rating: 3 / 5
