Publisher's summary

FOUR GENERATIONS OF JEDI
ONE COMMON ENEMY

The Jedi Temple is a place of secrets and trust. Inside its walls, a legacy is passed down from generation to generation of peace, justice, and strength. But that legacy can be broken. Sometimes the greatest enemies rise from within…

Lorian Nod is a promising Jedi apprentice. A Padawan named Dooku is his best friend. Under the watchful eye of Yoda, they are preparing to become Jedi Knights. Dooku knows their fate is intertwined… yet he is not prepared for a turn of events that reveals the dark side to him for the first time.

Years later, Dooku is a Jedi Master and Lorian Nod is a pirating outcast. With an unforeseen desire for revenge, Dooku works to thwart his former friend—even if it means crossing his own apprentice Qui-Gon Jinn…

When Qui-Gon himself becomes a Jedi Master, the specter of Lorian Nod still looms. As Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan Kenobi struggle to find their place as Master and Padawan, they must work together to prevent an interplanetary threat—and to outwit a very familiar enemy…

During the Clone Wars, Lorian Nod wants to play a pivotal role as the Republic battles to keep hold of a strategic planet. On one side, Obi-Wan and his apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, must decide whether they can trust such an infamous figure. On the other side, the now compromised Count Dooku has a score to settle against his old nemesis…

FOUR GENERATIONS OF TRUST AND BETRAYAL.
ONE LEGACY.

Continunity

The two sections of the book set in Dooku's childhood are set in 89 BBY. There are two sections during the apprenticeship of Qui-Gon Jinn, one set in 76 BBY and one set significantly later, when Qui-Gon is ready to take the Jedi Trials. One of the Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi sections is set after the death of Xanatos in 44 BBY, with the other taking place directly before the mission to Naboo in 32 BBY. The last segment with Anakin Skywalker takes place six months after Battle of Geonosis at the end of 22 BBY.

It is said in the beginning of the book that Dooku and Lorian Nod are thirteen years old, Dooku having just been chosen as a Padawan and Nod still being unchosen. However other canonical writings, specifically the Jedi Apprentice series(also by Jude Watson) state that once the age of thirteen is reached, an apprentice is sent out of the temple, being too old to continue training without a master.
