Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker must stem the tide of the raging Clone Wars and forge a new bond as Jedi Knights.

The Clone Wars have begun. Battle lines are being drawn throughout the galaxy. With every world that joins the Separatists, the peace guarded by the Jedi Order is slipping through their fingers.

After an explosion devastates Cato Neimoidia, the jewel of the Trade Federation, the Republic is blamed and the fragile neutrality of the planet is threatened. The Jedi dispatch Obi-Wan Kenobi, one of the Order's most gifted diplomatic minds, to investigate the crime and maintain the balance that has begun to dangerously shift. As Obi-Wan investigates with the help of a heroic Neimoidian guard, he finds himself working against the Separatists who hope to draw the planet into their conspiracy-and senses the sinister hand of Asajj Ventress in the mists that cloak the planet.

Amid the brewing chaos, Anakin Skywalker rises to the rank of Jedi Knight. Despite the mandate that Obi-Wan travel alone—and his former master's insistence that he listen this time—Anakin's headstrong determination means nothing can stop him from crashing the party and bringing along a promising but conflicted youngling.

Once a Padawan to Obi-Wan, Anakin now finds himself on equal—but uncertain—footing with the man who raised him. The lingering friction between them increases the danger for everyone around them. The two knights must learn a new way to work together—and they must learn quickly, to save Cato Neimoidia and its people from the fires of war. To overcome the threat they face they must grow beyond master and apprentice. They must stand together as brothers.

The Force is strong with this one

An absolutely wonderful novel which tells a gripping original story extending the narrative of the Prequel Trilogy and focusing on 'that business on Cato Neimoidia'.

Mike Chen does a fantastic job in describing the locations and expanding on character motivations. Each chapter kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more. It was touching to see Obi-Wan and Anakin's relationship grow in Canon once more, and gives us Anakin's heartwarming connections to Younglings.
I didn't expect to see certain characters to appear and Easter Eggs from other Star Wars content across multiple media which was 'a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one'.

Jonathan Davis does a great job in narrating the novel, with each character being clearly distinguished despite just hearing one voice the entire time. And in times of tension, drama, etc Davis delivers it well. In summary, the audiobook keeps me immersed in the world presented in the novel, which helped with the inclusion of sound effects and score from John Williams.

As a Star Wars fan of 20+ years, Mike Chen has my full gratitude and respect for writing such an exciting and moving piece of Canon content based on my favourite Trilogy and characters, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. This is perfect material to read especially for those who enjoy the Prequel Trilogy and its connected series like The Clone Wars, and also acts as a great novel to read in preparation for the upcoming Disney+ Series 'Obi-Wan Kenobi'

10/10 would read again. The Force is strong with this one.

Brotherhood

Gives an interesting and exciting take on the period after Anakin becomes a Jedi Knight.
Obi wan is of playing negotiator, meanwhile Sideous is stoking both the fires of War, Separatist and Gar.

Simply beautiful

Loved everything about this book. Getting to see so much more on obi wan and anakin both in peak Jedi mode but also simply living their lives. I love that. Getting to see a glimpse of their everyday lives and really get to understand their thought process. 10/10 couldn’t recommend this book enough for any sequel lover.

Gripping story- fills in some gaps

Really good story and as a Star Wars fan and someone getting into The Clone Wars, this is a really good story bridging some gaps from Attack of The Clones and the start of The Clones Wars. Recommend for any Star Wars fan.

Brotherhood - brilliant

Excellent story and brilliantly narrated by Jonathan Davis. The bond between Obi Wan and Anakin is really well explores and ties in well to the Kenobi TV series with the feelings of a brotherhood forsaken and betrayed.

Really Pleasant.

Really enjoyable read, does a good job of connecting the Attack of the Clones and Clone Wars versions of Anakin and Obi-Wan.

Quite humorous in places, occasionally poking fun at the prequels dialogue.

The story is good but feels like it ends with a bit of a fizzle, which is only a problem if you look at the book as a stand alone read.

Spends a little too much time retelling things we have already seen.

That business on Namoidia doesn't count...

If you've ever wanted to know what they meant by that off comment back in 2005, strap yourself in. I think more than anything, just seeing how Anakin and Obi Wan's relationship completely changes and forms into the one we see in ROTS is enough to sell this one. They did a good job at staying true to pre-existing characters while also keeping it realistic continuity-wise for new ones. It also helps they include great sound effects and John Williams original scores to heighten the experience. Would definitely recommend.

A lot of nothing

Compared to the other titles released recently this book falls flat. Nothing of real consequence happens as they try to dodge around a very narrow time period.
Fans of Star Wars could give this one a miss and not miss out on anything important.

It’s totally worth a listen. Performance was brilliant. Sometimes the background noises are over the top but still a wonderful audio book.

Still going but so far I love it!

I’m 11 chapters in but so far the book is fantastic.
The author captures the characterisations of Obi-Wan and Anakin perfectly it also fits into Canon very well and bridges the gap between the aftermath of attack of the clones and the clone Wars TV series.
Even though I’m only up to chapter 11 I’m already hot I can’t wait to hear how the story ends hope they do flashbacks or something similar in the Kenobi series.

Audiobook cuts out halfway through chapter 42

I was really enjoying this book but halfway through chapter 42 with under three hours left it won’t continue to play any further. I’ve updated the app, restarted the book, restarted the app and restarted the chapter and nothing works.

BRING ON KENOBI

It would be pretty hard for me not to like a Star Wars book at this stage.

Wow, this book felt so tense, but as a heavily invested reader in the Star Wars universe, I thoroughly enjoyed this. So many moments when I wanted to scream at Anakin to not trust Palpatine. His grooming was sickening, but it made total sense in the grand narrative.

There was also a close link to current issues in our real world. For example, it tackles racism and war, and honestly, it was done in such a beautiful way.

It was fantastic to see a youngling and Anakin being a great teacher and master. In fact, there were so many things I liked. I am so glad I read this book, and I can't wait to see the Kenobi series. BRING IT ON!!!

Haven’t finished it yet

Haven’t finished this book yet but so far it’s turning out to be one of the best Star Wars novels I’ve come across. It’s taking Anakin in all his angst and ‘brattyness’ in episode 2 and than showing how he is progressing into the hero of the clone wars. It in a way feels like a joining of Hayden’s and Matt’s portrayal of Anakin. So many gems in this book so far I hope the quality is consistent all the way through.
