Jedi Apprentice (Young Reader Novels)
Star Wars Saga Timeline:
Obi-Wan Kenobi is no longer a Jedi. He has chosen instead to be a part of the revolution on the planet Melida/Daan. His Master, Qui-Gon Jinn, has gone back to Coruscant, where trouble is stirring inside the Jedi Temple.
Obi-Wan takes comfort in his friends, the other leaders of the revolution. Together they have power—perhaps too much power. As the revolution continues, friends become enemies, and Obi-Wan's path grows more and more uncertain. Qui-Gon is no longer around to help him.
Obi-Wan is on his own.
In the previous book, Obi-Wan has left Qui-Gon and the Jedi to help the Young end the wars on Melida/Daan. The Young eventually win the war, but then are left with establishing a new government, rebuilding after the war, and all the other problems of running a war torn planet.
Meanwhile, Qui-Gon returns to Coruscant with Tahl, the Jedi he rescued. They are soon informed by Yoda that someone is stealing things and vandalizing the temple. As the problems escalate, Qui-Gon is assigned the task of nabbing the culprit. But how far will the problems go?
As things go downhill quickly on Melida/Daan, Obi-Wan begins to realize that leaving the Jedi was a mistake and that they are the only ones who can help save the planet from more war. But will Qui-Gon take him back?
