Anakin Skywalker knows that Obi-Wan Kenobi did not choose him as an apprentice. Instead, it was teh dying wish of Obi-Wan's own Master, Qui-Gon Jinn, that brought them together. Now, Anakin is beginning to doubt his Master's commitment....and Obi-Wan is starting to wonder if he will ever be as good a Master as qui-Gon.
With these things in mind, Master and apprentice head out on a training exercise that soon turns into a struggle to survive. A squad of bounty hunters has been hired to capture the Jedi - and they will stop at nothing to do it. Anakin and Obi-Wan must avoid the traps and ambushes...and try to discover who is behind the deadly Jedi hunt.
Set between Episode I and Episode II, the Jedi Quest series traces the emergence and education of Anakin Skywalker as a young Jedi devoted to the Force -- and tempted by its dark side.

"Excellent Follow Up for the Series"
Hmm. That is a little hard for me to answer because I have listened to over a hundred audiobooks in my life. My favorites tend to be Star Wars audiobooks and many of those were high quality productions.
Having said that, it usually takes me at least several days to finish unabridged productions. Sometimes weeks if I am busy and the story is good but very long. Not here. I consumed the book in two sittings, within the very same day. The tale flowed so well I didn't want to stop. It wasn't a Star Wars literary masterpiece. But it did a very good job of entertaining me so I have to give it a good rating.
Overall, I can easily put it in my top 20. For unabridged audiobooks under 4 hours long that I enjoyed enough to finish in a single day, it is currently my favorite Star Wars audiobook. And that's the highest compliment I can give.
Granta Omega's omnious dialogue near the end. After everything that happened in the fast paced novel, it definitely feels that he will be the primary antagonist of the Jedi Quest series. And I have a feeling that I am really going to enjoy this ride.
The bickering between the bounty hunter siblings. These new characters amused a lot and the performance of Jonathan Davis brought them to life. Really well done.
Darkness comes to an unspoiled world.
I have been thoroughly enjoying this book series so far. I read the previous book a long, long time ago but never managed to get the rest. Now I am making up for lost time with the help of audible and it has been a pleasant experience.
Now, Jedi Quest #3: The Dangerous Games, here I come!
