The Changing of the Guard is the eighth book in the Star Wars Jedi Quest series by Jude Watson.[1] It serves to chronicle the adventures of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi between the events of The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones.


When Obi-Wan, Anakin, Siri, and Ferus get a tip that Jenna Zan Arbor is hiding on the planet of Romin under the protection of a tyrannical dictator, they pose as a gang of thieves called the Slams in order to infiltrate the planet. Thanks to the laws of Romin, the Jedi cannot arrest Arbor and take her away; Arbor must leave the planet of her own free will. The Jedi hope to trick her into leaving by offering her a part in a heist, but it soon becomes apparent that she has other plans. Matters are complicated further when a civil war erupts on the planet and the Jedi are thrown into the middle of it.[citation needed]
