Book Overview

Love, war, and secrets span generations in this powerful Star Wars novel by best-selling author Jude Watson. To be a Jedi is to safeguard peace in the galaxy. To be a Jedi is to defend justice against tyranny. To be a Jedi is to rely on the Force. To be a Jedi is to not love or live as normal people do ... at whatever the price. Jedi know that love is not meant to be for them. But when Obi-Wan Kenobi and his fellow apprentice Siri approach a very...

The best book ever writen.

I love star wars. The best star wars book Iv'e ever read. I like it because it shows a new side of Obi-Wan that we have never seen before in any book or movie. And I also like it because Siri is one of the main charicters and she is very brave even though she is a girl jedi. I think you should read this book.

Very Intresting

I really loved this book and I thought it was really sad when Siri gave her life for Padme's because she was a very imporntant senator. I thought it was the right thing to do because the storyline of Star Wars might have drasticcly changed if events had been different. I knew all about Jinn's relationshio with Tahl and how he felt. Overall it was a good book and loved it eventhough sometimes I was on the verge of crying. Another beautiful story by Jude Watson.

Another well done book by Jude Watson!

This is a great book! For those of you who love action, this has a lot of it, but focuses on the relationships of the Jedi in this book. My cousin and I read it, and we both agree that Qui-Gon may have been a little selfish in the end. I mean, that is the first time, I've ever heard of Obi-Wan crying! I mean, Obi-Wan understood what happened between Qui-Gon and Tahl. He knew it was forbidden, but did he bring the council in? No, he comforted Qui-Gon. Qui-Gon just made him tear his heart in two.If you read this book, you can decide if Qui-Gon was selfish or not. Being Jude Watson's Number One fan, I thought that this was definitly the most emotional Star Wars book by her so far. The ending of both sections definitly brought a tear to my eye. But I still love this book!

Bitter, Sacrafice, Possession

This was one of my favorite's by Jude Watson so forgive me if this review is slightly biased. I truly loved this book. Instead of focusing on a mission, grand scale battles and beheadings of certain Bounty Hunters, Secrets of the Jedi emphasized the morals and sacrafices of the Jedi. We get to see the three different Jedi (Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan and Anakin) deal with their love in three different ways. Qui-Gon, first of all, did not have the chance to make the tearing decision that Obi-Wan had to make in Secrets of the Jedi, thus, there was no internal conflict. I must add that I thought the conversation between him, Yoda and Obi-Wan at the end was wonderfully potrayed. I felt just as awful as Obi-Wan when he had to make his decision. Then we see Obi-Wan faced again with the choice of continuing his life as Jedi or bailing out again for something else (this 'something' to be Siri.) His love for her was geniune but yet he made the choice to let her go. And finally we see Anakin's and Padme's relationship which can only be summed into one word: Possession. I think this book was a nice fit for Episode Three, in the sense that we can see that possession between Anakin and Padme. We can see the foreshadowing and why Anakin was never truly committed to the Jedi and why it was so easy for him to turn. I enjoyed this book and I could really sense more passion put into it than many of Watson's last few. A must read for those who aren't fond of swinging lightsabers (although there is plently in the book) and are more fond of seeing character development. Toasts to Watson for this exciting read!

Love vs. Possession

Jude Watson is an amazing writer for teens, and she really gives them something to think about in this book. No doubt about it the fact that I'm an adult, but I think everyone can read her books and enjoy them (I have the entire Jedi Apprentice series, gotta love Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon! LOL). This book focuses on the love that is forbidden in the Jedi Code, and for good reason. I was glad to see a book where Qui-Gon explained his lvoe for Tahl. Obi-Wan, understanding this, was able to finally give up and let go of what he loved the most, in contrast to Anakin, who never would. Obi-Wan, is such a true Jedi, like Qui-Gon, where he sacrifices all to make the choices he must. Anakin cannot sacrifice his love for Padme' because it consumes him; in a sense, he possesses her, and that's what this book defines for people who read it. You come to understand why Padme' and Anakin's love is different than any other Jedi's even after in the New Jedi Order--it's about possession and power. It is almost as though he has to OWN Padme' to protect her. It explains so much of the future events. This book is a great read, and is really good. I hope everyone enjoys it. It makes Obi-Wan the Jedi he is, and it shows reasons why Anakin will never be the Jedi he should be.
