It was only a matter of time before Kenobi had to recede to the fringes of the planet with the twin suns, and Jude Watson has done a wonderful job of finding a way to reintroduce Ferus Olin to the now-defunct Star Wars canon. And while Olin is a great protagonist in his own right, this book really suffers from the lack of Kenobi. However, to counterbalance Olin's own efforts, Watson has moved into place the character of Malorum, an Imperial Inquisitor who is infinitely more developed, and is an ...more

I was a bit concerned about the lesser role of Obi-wan in this volume, since I started reading this series way back then actually only for him.
But it worked out so well that I am really looking forward to read the next book.
Ferus and Trever function very very well as independent characters and I love the connections Jude Watson continues to draw to Jedi Apprentice and Jedi Quest, as well as, the insights we get into what is left of the Jedi and the temple.

The series takes a huge nosedive with the departure of Obi-Wan Kenobi. I understand that the series follows Ferus' adventures, but the change in narrative perspectives and character prominence from the previous books are a bit jarring. I'm biased though - Obi-Wan was the whole reason I started reading this, and I find my interest has wandered off with him.

This is a 3.25 stars.

Ferus and Trevor are on Coruscant to look for an imprisoned Jedi. But they uncover secrets that the Empire has spread about the Temple. It's not a prison - it's a trap. The two come face-to-face with Vader and it is definitely strange the Sith let them go. I just think Anakin was beyond shocked to see someone from his past.

The two learn of the Erased, a group of Republic supporters, who are able to erase records of a person's existence, allowing them to efficiently disappea

A good addition to the series, with complicated, well-drawn characters. Ferus Olin infiltrates the Jedi temple upon hearing rumors of a Jedi being held prisoner there by the emperor. Later Dexter Jettster reveals to them the existence of a group called “the Erased,” made up of people dissatisfied with the Empire.
I enjoyed this book more than others in the series or by Watson previously. I found it easier to read and it flowed better. I think the thing that bothered me most was some of the poor thinking displayed by characters who should be smarter than that.
Our hero goes to the remains of the jedi temple to find other jedi. He ends up searching the underworld for any remaining jedi. This is a decent, fast moving story, and it is interesting to see how the Empire has affected people. A good read.
I know it's part of a series but it's not a stand-alone book. It ends with a cliffhanger. :-(

The action moves to ex-padawan Ferus Olan and 13 year-old Trevor as they go back to Coruscant to rescue possible Jedi survivors.

I missed Obi-Wan (only a cameo!) but as usual for this series so far, Watson doesn't miss a thing. The fall-out of the Jedi massacre is heart-breaking, with one unbelievably moving image in the Temple that is worthy of a movie in itself. My kids loved it, too. Book 4!
Victor Orozco
Interesting story considering that it was pretty short. Kenobi is not in it but its clear by now that this is Ferus Olin's story. Tragic in finding out what had happened to the Jedi Temple as well as to Obi-Wan's alien-like Ernest Borgnine friend Dexter. C+
Vincent Louis
I never read this book. I never even knew it existed. How it got onto my shelf is a mystery and the bigger mystery is that I can't remove it. Please don't judge me by the presence of this book on my shelf.
