Obi Wan is there, and we occasionally dip into his perspective, but the journey is mostly Qui Gon s, the growth is mostly Qui Gon s, and the eyes through which we view events are almost always Qui Gon s The concept of lineage is a powerful thread throughout this book Occasional flashbacks take us back to Qui Gon s childhood, and Dooku is a strongly felt presence in everyone s mind even when he s not physically there We get to meet Dooku s first padawan, and as Qui Gon grapples with his current relatio I was a little disappointed in this book It was ok and good in most places I think my main problem with the book is having read the entire Jedi Apprentice series I had a very different picture in my mind of Qui Gon Jinn and Obi Wan This being a new universe this could be forgiven, and Claudia Gray does a very good job with her own characters, but for me she just did not seem to Qui Gon and the Jedi right for me.
My problem with the Jedi was they seemed to need rescuing as much as the who they went on to rescue I agree with Qui Gon they acted like political enforcers the guardians of justice In fairness the Samuri that the Jedi are based did that their Shogun s word as the law without question, but as a Star Wars no.
The story is good but a bit slow, and does need a heavy dose of action The parts that were good to great are things with young Qui Gon and Dooku The book This Cover THIS COVER Claudia stays blessing me QUEEN OF STAR WARS NOVELS.
Qui Gon Jinn Now that s a name I haven t heard in a long time long time.
Qui Gon Jinn Now that s a name I haven t heard in a long time long time.
My history with Claudia Gray s Star Wars novels hasn t been very positive Her first, Lost Stars, was one of the early entries in the new canon, and it has a lot of fans but for a number of reasons, I didn t care for it Nor did I enjoy her two Leia focused books, Bloodline and Leia Princess of Alderaan.
But then I read her short story, Master and Apprentice, in From a Certain Point of View, and it was by far one of the best things I ve read in the new canon That story offered a quiet, reflective glimpse into Obi Wan and Qui Gon s ongoing friendship during Obi Wan s exile on Tatooine.
And so I came to the full length novel Master and Apprentice with uncertain expectations little confidence in Gray s ability to keep a novel length SW story going, but cautious optimism because of the beaut 4.
5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum have been most impressed with Claudia Gray s books in the new Star Wars canon, and I have to say, she has yet to disappoint me Now she s at the top of her game once again with Star Wars Master Apprentice, a novel set a handful of years before the events of The Phantom Menace which shines the light on 17 year old padawan Obi Wan Kenobi and his complicated relationship with his mentor, Qui Gon Jinn.
When the book begins, the two Jedi have already been working together for several years, though deep down, both suspect that their current arrangement may be soon coming to an end They are simply too different in their views of the Force, with Qui Gon with his unconventional thinking and sometimes flagrant disregard for the Jedi Council s advice while Obi Wan is of a stickler for the rules Thes I ve long maintained that in the time since Disney s purchase of Star Wars in 2012, the very best materials released thus far in the new canon and I m including all of the new movies under this umbrella have been Claudia Gray s Star Wars novels Lost Stars, Bloodline , and Leia Princess of Alderaan are all TERRIFIC books, taking characters that we all know and love and placing them in thrilling, very OT Star Wars esque narratives Which makes the fact that Master and Apprentice, Gray s newest novel, never quite reaches the heights of her previous Star Wars work, admittedly, a tad disappointing any time an auteur delivers a new piece work, it s hard not to hope it will live up to the expectations set by his her past output Still the fact that Master and Apprentice isn t as intriguing as Bloodline or as epic in scope as L This book takes place before the prequel movies In this one, Qui Gon and Obi Wan are sent to a planet that is about to sign a treaty that will open a hyperspace corridor which means this planet will be connected to the rest of the galaxy Obviously, things don t go as planned.
This book is a terrific look into the relationship between master and padawan It is also a terrific look into each character especially Qui Gon Their relationship isn t the smoothest and we get to see why as these two different characters differ in opinion I believe this is such a strong book for Qui Gon s character and it explains the character in The Phantom Menace I loved the look into how he doesn t exactly conform to the Jedi Council and this A NEW STAR WARS BOOK BY CLAUDIA GRAY I NEED IT NOW.
Qui Gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi.
We ve been given so much new content for the prequel trilogy lately and it s making me appreciate this era than I used to, I am so happy.
I m preparing to fall into another star wars phase in two months and I have no regrets The Jude Watson series about these two was basically my late childhood.
