I won't go into the specifics of the story, since others have done so, better than I could. I'm a fan of this series from the very first, and I have come to respect Jude Watson greatly for her tales. The last two books I rated somewhat lower than the first set, but that doesn't stop me from eagerly awaiting the next installment.
With this book the dynamics between Obi Wan and Qui Gon have changed slightly. Obi Wan is more mature, their partnership is more solid and equal. Now Qui Gon is the one with the doubts and the apprehension, though it isn't for his Padawan, and Bant is now experiencing the anxieties that Obi Wan had three years before, while in this book Obi Wan is the one picking up the clues that Qui Gon misses. It was good to see Tahl, though Tahl changed quite a bit from the way she started out, but then again, she's lived with her blindness for three years now.
The book builds well, there are some scattered clues about who are behind all the unrest and the killing of Roan, and I think there may be a surprise or two in the next book, apart from the glimpses they've already given us. I truly hope the arc will build better than the last trilogy. Watson has proven her worth, we know she can do it. If time is what is needed, I'm well prepared to wait a little longer for the next book.
Just as an aside. Reading the book, considering that Obi Wan is now 16 and has been with Qui-Gon for 3 years now, I was wondering when he is going to start calling Qui-Gon "Master" on a regular basis. In Episode I, he never calls him Qui-Gon unless he's talking about him, but so far, in the books he only occasionally calls him Master, and not once in this book. Normally, I'd say, a young, over-awed apprentice would address his master not by his first name, not until he's known him for a while, and feels familiar enough to switch to first-name basis. Probably an oversight, but interesting to think about.
