Jedi Apprentice (Young Reader Novels)
Star Wars Saga Timeline:
The Jedi Temple is under attack. An attempt has been made to kill Yoda. A dangerous intruder has infiltrated the Jedi.
Everybody is under suspicion, and no one is safe from harm. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn must get to the heart of the conspiracy…or watch the Temple be destroyed—from the inside.
Somebody is causing problems at the Jedi Temple. Items are being stolen, things are breaking down, and other such annoying problems. The situation gets more serious, though, when someone tries to kill Yoda with a bomb. Yoda survives, of course, but the mystery of who planted it remains.
Qui-Gon returns to attempt to solve the mystery, and Obi-Wan is in tow. As you know from the previous books, Obi-Wan resigned from the Jedi. This makes his return to them extremely awkward. Can he regain the trust of his fellow students, the Jedi Council, and, more importantly, Qui-Gon?
Eventually we discover that Qui-Gon's evil former Padawan Xanatos is behind the terrorism. He is also using Obi-Wan's rival Bruck as a helper. It is up Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan to stop them before the peace of the Jedi Temple is destroyed forever. But can Qui-Gon face and/or kill Xanatos without turning to the Dark Side? And can Obi-Wan regain his connection to the Force?
