Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Master and Apprentice by Claudia Gray, read by Jonathan Davis.

An unexpected offer threatens the bond between Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi as the two Jedi navigate a dangerous new planet and an uncertain future.

A Jedi must be a fearless warrior, a guardian of justice, and a scholar in the ways of the Force. But perhaps a Jedi’s most essential duty is to pass on what they have learned. Master Yoda trained Dooku; Dooku trained Qui-Gon Jinn; and now Qui-Gon has a Padawan of his own. But while Qui-Gon has faced all manner of threats and danger as a Jedi, nothing has ever scared him like the thought of failing his apprentice.

Obi-Wan Kenobi has deep respect for his Master but struggles to understand him. Why must Qui-Gon so often disregard the laws that bind the Jedi? Why is Qui-Gon drawn to ancient Jedi prophecies instead of more practical concerns? And why wasn’t Obi-Wan told that Qui-Gon is considering an invitation to join the Jedi Council - knowing it would mean the end of their partnership? The simple answer scares him: Obi-Wan has failed his Master.

When Jedi Rael Aveross, another former student of Dooku, requests their assistance with a political dispute, Jinn and Kenobi travel to the Royal Court of Pijal for what may be their final mission together. What should be a simple assignment quickly becomes clouded by deceit and by visions of violent disaster that take hold in Qui-Gon’s mind. As Qui-Gon’s faith in prophecy grows, Obi-Wan’s faith in him is tested - just as a threat surfaces which will demand that Master and Apprentice come together as never before, or be divided forever.

The Start is just fine...

They made the Jedi code from Knights of the Old Republic Canon, which is all kinds of right...another winner from Claudia Gray.

A story about Jinn

The narrator's British accent as a bit of flop, but he nailed Pax!
The story itself frustrated me for the longest time, as Jinn has always been one of my favourite star wars characters, and this portrayed a flawed side - especially with his relationship with Kenobi. But by the end, it was satisfingly conclusive.

It also felt more like a focus primarily on Qui Gon and his back ground, rather than his relationship with Kenobi. Once I understood and accepted this, I was able to enjoy it more. But as the title suggests, I was not expecting this.

Bad start

Within the first two minutes the author got the Jedi code wrong surely it can’t get worse right?

That voice

Big shout out to Jonathon Davis. His ‘impressions’ of Kenobi, Dooku, and especially Gin are first class and make the book so much more immersive. Hats off to ya.

Qui Gon & Kenobi...GEEEWWWD

Was so pumped for this book as these two characters are two of my favourites from the WHOLE of Star Wars. Claudia Gray has written superb book here.
She really has done them justice, building a solid structured back ground and believable feelings between Master and apprentice. It even includes snippets of Qui Gon Jinn as a Padawan with his master....Dooku!

It also clears up some theorys, such as why Jinn never joined the Jedi council. And gives us a better understanding in his ability to understand and believe in prophecies - laying the foundations for his involvement with Anakin (The Chosen one)

As usual Jonathan Davis has given us another outstanding performance. You truly can just sit back and relax, confident you will not be disappointed. He does such a good Kenobi voice.

The ending is SO amazing as well. quite often I've been disappointed by star wars books endings. Either they end to abruptly, or it doesn't wrap up to a solid conclusion. Not here though. Claudia Gray nailed it and she has gained a new fan 😊
I so nearly gave this book five stars, but it just fell short for me as they're were a couple of slow bits.

If you have any love for Qui Gon or Kenobi? Use your Credit and Listen to this book. you will not be disappointed.

GOOD READ!

This is my second Star Wars audio book, the first being Dark Disciple) and I really enjoyed it. I wouldn't say the performance was as gripping and dynamic as Marc Thompsons and the Yoda voice wasn't great at all however the story itself was still really interesting. It adds a lot of back story to my fav characters but still keeps Dookus a mystery (Perhaps because of his own audio drama?). Overall really enjoyable and worth a read/listen!

Great fun - love the insight into the two Jedi.

Great story - loved Qui-gons outlook on the force, and watching him and Obi-wan grow as master and apprentice.

Mehhhh

This was my first foray into Star Wars novels and I have to admit I was a little underwhelmed. Having loved the films and especially these characters I had hoped that this novel would capture some of the magic but sadly it fell a little flat.
That being said I did enjoy the character voice narration- the impressions of Qui Gonn, Obi Wan and Yoda were strong.
The main challenge with getting through this book was the story not being too thrilling. I found the pace a little slow in parts and the action sequences to be not as exciting as I would hope.
Maybe my review is coming off a little negative as I have been spoilt by listening to some incredible audiobooks immediately prior to picking up this one. If your willing to take a gamble on the advice of a random internet stranger then read “The lies of Locke Lamora” instead- it’s absolutely awesome.

Fantastic book, great action and story

Brilliant book set in an era largely misrepresented in the new canon. Great story and action, would love a sequel. Highly recommend
