Jedi Quest is an eleven-book series written by Jude Watson about Obi-Wan Kenobi, his apprentice Anakin Skywalker, and the events that take place in the fictional Star Wars expanded universe between Episode I: The Phantom Menace and Episode II: Attack of the Clones, (32-22 BBY). More than three years of preparatory training are alluded to before Anakin builds his first lightsaber (29 BBY), as recounted in the introductory novel, Path to Truth. The series was published from 2001 to 2004.


Path to Truth[edit]

It begins with Anakin and Obi-Wan climbing atop of a cliff. Anakin has to find his crystals for his lightsaber. After he completes this task, Skywalker and Kenobi are summoned to complete a mission which leads to the return of friends and old enemies.

The Way of the Apprentice[edit]

In The Way of the Apprentice, four Master-Padawan teams (Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darra Thel-Tanis and Soara Antana, Tru Veld and Ry-Gaul, Ferus Olin and Siri Tachi) must travel to Radnor, where several cities are carrying a deadly virus, and sort out the problem.

The Trail of the Jedi[edit]

In The Trail of the Jedi, Obi-Wan organizes a training exercise for Anakin and himself. They adventure to the beautiful planet of Ragoon 6 only to find that a team of bounty hunters have been hired to capture them by a mysterious man who wants them dead.

The Dangerous Games[edit]

In The Dangerous Games, Obi-Wan and Anakin are sent to a planet to guard the Galactic Games and they learn that an illegal podrace has been fixed to go wrong. Anakin must enter the race and face his old rival Sebulba's son.

The Master of Disguise[edit]

In The Master of Disguise, Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi find themselves caught on a hostile planet, and facing their savviest enemy yet, a master of disguise named Granta Omega.

The School of Fear[edit]

In The School of Fear, Anakin Skywalker is not an average teen. He has spent most of his adolescence surrounded by other Jedi. But now the son of a Senator has gone missing, and Anakin must infiltrate an elite school in order to find out what's happened. He joins a secret squad and finds out that Padawan Ferus Olin has gone missing and doesn't tell anyone. He finds that the secret squad was formed by the senator's son and was using Anakin, for his dead body. The result of this puts Anakin and Obi-Wan further apart than ever.

The Shadow Trap[edit]

In The Shadow Trap, when the Jedi are called in to help pacify a chaotic planet, it should be a routine mission. But behind the chaos is an evil in hiding. The routine mission goes horribly wrong and, in a moment that will be shocking to fans, the Jedi Master Yaddle is killed . . . with Anakin feeling responsible. It takes the combined power of Yoda, Anakin, and Obi-Wan to fight this battle.

The Moment of Truth[edit]

In The Moment of Truth, masters and apprentices must trust one another. But that is not the case with Anakin Skywalker and his Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. A rift is building between them. When they are separated during a rescue mission on a dangerous planet, their conflict reaches a new high—and shows signs of things to come.

The Changing of the Guard[edit]

In The Changing of the Guard, Obi-Wan, Anakin, and another pair of Jedi must try to retrieve an evil scientist from a planet run by criminals as a refuge for other criminals. In order to do this, they have to go undercover, as the kind of scum they usually try to catch. Will the means be worth the ends? Or will Anakin learn too much about the seamier side of the galaxy?

The False Peace[edit]

In The False Peace, Granta Omega and Jenna Zan Arbor are destroying planets, and the Jedi are getting blamed. Obi Wan must find a way to resolve this issue and find Omega at the same time. Will the solution be as tough as it appears?

The Final Showdown[edit]

In The Final Showdown, Anakin is furious that Ferus was chosen over him to test out a "Knight acceleration" program. During a mission on Korriban, Anakin and Ferus turn the mission into a contest. Unfortunately, their rivalry causes a fellow Padawan, Darra Thel-Tanis, to die.
