By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 17, 2000
Format: Paperback
Well, things have definitely changed in the world of Jude Watson's JA series.
After the important events of two books ago, Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are far closer and more secure. They are being sent to the worlds of Rutan (high-tech and rather arrogant) and Senali (low-tech and at-one-with-nature). A tradition dictates that the two sovereigns of these planets exchange their children at a young age, for the sake of relations between them. Except now Prince Leed of the Rutan doesn't wanna go home.
His father is furious, and wants the Jedi to intervene. But what can they do when a young man makes a mature decision that could lead to war?
After the events of "Defenders of the Dead," I thought that she was inaccurately portraying the young Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi--but instead she used this to make Obi-Wan mature in matters of patience and thoughtfulness. Qui-Gon gets teased a bit about being imperfect, but this is very good to read. I was genuinely surprised by the end twist--I didn't see that coming at ALL.
I thought the Rutan and Senali lifestyles were a bit too cliched and the ending a bit too easy for all concerned, but if everything were truly realistic the conflict would go on for hundreds of pages. In addition, the writing is an excellent example of poetic prose, even if Leed tends to repeat himself. I think Ms. Watson is definitely maturing further as a writer.
This is a highly enjoyable entry in a great series. If you're a fan of Obi-Wan, check it out.

Lightsabers are arguably one of the finest inventions/adaptations that science fiction has created. It is also true that they can be used as weapons, but that is as a last resort. Physical confrontation, combat, is never preferable, defense is first, offensive use the last and most regrettable of options.
This 10th episode will not please action fans. In truth there is more of that brand of event in the preview that is included for episode 11 "The Deadly Hunter". The character that is introduced but not named is interesting, is this her first appearance, or not? Unfortunately again, a wait is required.
The irony of this series is that the premises by which the Jedi conduct themselves are often more consistent than other books, or even the films. In this book Jude Watson stays very close to the concepts of peace, restraint, patience, and control of anger. I enjoy a good saber fight as much as the next fan. Obi-Wan VS. Maul was a classic that will be hard to match, but the necessity of the fight was plain, there was no other opportunity, no alternative.
I did think the book was a bit slow, but put it in the perspective of THE JEDI Master Yoda the book is perfect. When has he used violence, when has he ever drawn a saber, does he even have one? These books are for all fans even though directed at younger readers. The messages they teach are positive, and as always it is Yoda who sets the mission, and whose "voice" guides the actions of his Knights.
There is more to these books than some give credit for, and there are those that will think I take them too seriously. However when reviewing what is published for the consumption of Children, these books surpass much of their competition. It is this age group that begins reading on their own.

A Kid's Review on October 2, 2000
Format: Paperback
Well, I was a bit disappointed. I was hoping for an actionpacked book but I found a repeat on #4 and #5. Don't get me wrong! Agreat book! I like the sudden twists and how much the Jedi use theirlightsabers (Even for the littlest things! ) This book was grrrrrreat,like all the others but lacking action! From the review from "TheDeadly Hunter" the next book will be higher than ourexpectations! These books are WAY too short! I finished this book inliterally 20 minutes! A very fast book and it seems kind of rushed. Soif you're waiting for action, don't get your hopes up! Hang in there!Another one's coming soon! PLEASE VOTE YES ON MY REVIEW!

I liked it, I really did. Don't get me wrong at all. There was a lot of action, lots of lightsabre swinging and dart shooting on the part of Drenna. And Jude Watson managed to tie in Obi's experience on Melida/Daan without appearing to beat the subject to death. Qui admits that he has just as much to learn about being as Master as Obi has to learn about being a Padawan. They are starting to talk to each other, which is also a bonus, although Obi is afraid that if he reveals his true feelings, Qui will be reminded of the M/D disaster and won't like him anymore. They have a nice moment when Qui assures him that he won't hold his thoughts against him and opinions do not necessarily lead to actions.
Along with all the action, there was also an equal amount of dialogue and discussion, which was nice, although the plot was a little slow starting out. If there was an option, I'd really rate it a 4.5/5, but since I couldn't I decided I'd round up instead of down :)
I liked the comparisons the author draws between the two worlds - they appear so different on the surface, but when you get right down to it, all people are basically the same. Both sets of parents are afraid for their children, but they channel their fear in different ways, making them appear different. The moral lesson is clear, but that's okay since the book was written for a young audience. Yoda's phrase from the movie rings throughout - fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering. A nice tie in, I thought.
All in all, a nice story with a compact ending. And they all lived happily ever after...
