I first read this book at age 10, back when I was the biggest Star Wars fan I knew. I loved being able to read a new and exciting story about some of my favorite characters. And so I read it again. And once more. I still enjoy it every time. Granted, it doesn't have an extremely sophisticated writing style, and it's a little young for most adults, Jude Watson still weaves two very different but equally interesting story lines. It's really fascinating to explore the mind of Count Dooku, who later ...more

This book was okay. Nothing phenomenal. It provides some background on Obi-Wan and Anakin. The time frame spans into Episode 1, so if you have not seen it you may want to prior to reading this book. If you don't, you'll be left with many unanswered questions. This book is not very engaging. I stuck with it primarily to gain more back story on some of the characters. It took a bit of self motivation to make it through.

I recently was given all of Jude Watson's Star Wars books - this is the first one I read & I really enjoyed it. While her audience is younger (kids) the stories are enjoyable for adults as well. I like her easy going writing style & ability to capture depths for these characters that (in my opinion) were somewhat missing in the films.

It tells when Dukoo and his friend were thirteen, they werer introduced to the dark side, Qui-Gon as an apprentice to Dukoo and many other hidden fact of the Jedi. It expands on the first episode. I really enjoyed it.

I got this book in like 2005, when I got my first LEGOS set. I've read it like a thousand times. I recommend this like the best book in the world because it gives you a view of before even the Star Wars movies.

Yeah, I know. It's a kids series. But as a librarian I have to read all sorts of things to keep tabs on what people want to read and I just really like the Jedi Apprentice series. I think that they are good stories for kids to read.

Buen libro para entender los orígenes y razones de Dooku, necesario para entrever muchas cosas que pasan en el Episodio II

Not as thrilling as it sounds. I do love villains, especially Anakin, but this was boring most of all.
Ryker Kiedrowski
It is an excellent book, and one I am re-reading for what must be the eighteenth time this year. It is far too complicated not to read and then re-read.

I thought the book was amazing because you got to learn the life of a Sith. Who knew Count Dooku was once a jedi?

I loved this book because it told a lot of secrets that were only revealed when I read this book. It is a great book!
