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.

"This is a typical Star Wars audio, distinguished by evocative audio effects, background noises, and glorious music, as well as the skill of a reader who grasps the intonations and melodies of the Star Wars universe." (AudioFile)
I am currently going through all of the Star Wars Series books in order. Because of this, I would consider myself a big fan. However, I would not have been hurt had I skipped this one. It didn't add anything to the overall Star Wars experience.
Cool planet to discover but WAY too short. I never got ATTACHED to the characters anymore than I already am. Good book just not riveting story. I wouldn't read again.
This book was difficult to finish. It doesn't really add to the whole Star Wars story. The narrator didn't make some of the characters disgusted enough. A couple points during the story, I had trouble figuring out who was actually talking.
That being said there are a couple little interesting tidbits here. The biggest one for me was the planet Anakin and Obi-Wan travel to and find out how these mysterious ships are made. Also (not really a spoiler) if you're a Tarkin fan, he's in the story as well.
If this book was unabridged, I'm sure it would have been a more enjoyable experience.
This is a good gap filler that shows Anakin's progress in the Jedi Order and tells a good story. I enjoyed Micheal Cumpsty's performance and the music and sound effects are always great in these Star Wars Novels.
