There are some good developments with character and the dynamic between the two jedi and Obi-wan’s conflict is handled well. The Fight for Truth. I find it hilarious that Obi-Wan flies in near-lunacy, though not as bad as Anakin. Both accusing each other of heinous war crimes. I know it isn’t canon but seeing as this all takes place pre-Phantom Menace it still stands more or less as totally valid early tales of Qui-gon and Obi-wan.
The emotion in the story is sincere, and the tension palpable. They don’t play a huge role in any story so far, but when they do come out, they feel kind of useless.

Paperbackpages. The story is engaging, and it opens a window into the beloved character of Obi-Wan Kenobi, as well as his Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn well before either of them met their tragic ends. And the way that Watson slips in Tahl’s injuries–oh, my heart is rent for what is implied as having been done to her, even as Watson cleverly doesn’t get anywhere near spelling out the gruesomeness of torture.
You can feel the target audience of these books in view on every page, with its central theme of “Don’t trust anyone over 30” front and center. What is this horseshit that I just read?!?!
