Three years after the events of The Phantom Menace, Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi encounter a mysterious world…

Inside flap

MASTER AND APPRENTICE.

You've seen the movie The Phantom Menace. You've read the #1 New York Times bestselling book based on George Lucas's masterpiece. Now, before the eagerly awaited release of Episode II, comes a stunning new Star Wars novel from one of science fiction's greatest talents, a writer universally acclaimed for his keen grasp of cutting-edge science and the brilliance of his page-turning plots: multiple Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Greg Bear. The result is pure adrenaline—an unforgettable journey stretching from the farthest reaches of known space to the battlefield of a young boy's heart, where a secret struggle is being waged that will decide the fate of billions.

That boy is twelve-year-old Anakin Skywalker. The Force is strong in Anakin…so strong that the Jedi Council, despite misgivings, entrusted the young Jedi Knight 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, idealistic apprentice, who still bears the scars of slavery, 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. For there are others who covet the power such superfast ships could bring. Raith Sienar, a brilliant but unscrupulous weapons and ship designer, has the brains to decipher the Zonama Sekot ship design. Commander Wilhuff Tarkin has at his disposal the forces of the mighty Trade Federation with which to extract the secret. Together, they make a formidable foe, one a small and undeveloped planet can hardly hope to stand against.

But as Tarkin's fleet strikes with all its brutal power, Obi-Wan and Anakin 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.

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.

Plot summary

Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and the young Anakin Skywalker travel to a very strange and mysterious planet called Zonama Sekot, whose citizens live under the influence of the Potentium. The Padawan and his master intend to purchase a Sekotan spacecraft and discover the fate of Jedi Knight Vergere who visited the planet a year earlier, and was not heard from since. Also looking after the magnificent Sekotan ships are Raith Sienar and Wilhuff Tarkin, who struggle each other for political power. The creation of the living ships is thoroughly described, from the joining with the Seed-Partners, to designing and construction of the ship. The climax of the novel depicts the Second Battle of Zonama Sekot between the Sekotan and Tarkin's forces.

Behind the scenes

In this novel and the audio book adaptation, Obi-Wan mentions Darth Maul by name, when he should not have known the identity of the Sith he killed.

In the audiobook adaptation, Vergere's name is pronounced with a hard "g." instead of the "j" sound used in other audiobooks.
