The Republic has fallen. Sith Lords rule the galaxy. Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi has lost everything . . . Everything but hope. Tatooine—a harsh desert world where farmers toil in the heat of two suns while trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from the marauding Tusken Raiders. A backwater planet on the edge of civilized space. And an unlikely place to find a Jedi Master in hiding, or an orphaned infant boy on whose tiny shoulders rests the future of a galaxy. Known to locals only as “Ben,” the bearded and robed offworlder is an enigmatic stranger who keeps to himself, shares nothing of his past, and goes to great pains to remain an outsider. But as tensions escalate between the farmers and a tribe of Sand People led by a ruthless war chief, Ben finds himself drawn into the fight, endangering the very mission that brought him to Tatooine. Ben—Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, hero of the Clone Wars, traitor to the Empire, and protector of the galaxy’s last hope—can no more turn his back on evil than he can reject his Jedi training. And when blood is unjustly spilled, innocent lives threatened, and a ruthless opponent unmasked, Ben has no choice but to call on the wisdom of the Jedi—and the formidable power of the Force—in his never-ending fight for justice.

It's been more than a few years since I read a Star Wars book, and I wouldn't have picked this one up if I hadn't bought it for my wife – and she picked it for the cover.It covers the early years of Ben Kenobi's life on Tatooine, and his adjustment to 'civilian' life after the rise of the Empire.The...
This book was bad in so many ways. First, the plot was ludicrous, so full of holes. I know, it's Star Wars and SW is notorious for bad plots, having only 2 out of the 6 movies worth watching. Second, "Ben" Kenobi doesn't use a lightsaber until the last 30 pages. A Jedi novel? Despite trying to ...
This was one of the most satisfying Star Wars novels I've read in a number of years. I'm leery of prequel stuff in general; not only were the movies bad, but a lot of the EU stuff from the prequel years has been really bad as well. I picked this one up off of pretty rave reviews on a bunch of differ...
Excellent book! Miller does a great job of showing how Obi-wan, the famous general, jedi and do-gooder, starts down the path to being Ben Kenobi, the crazy old wizard in the desert. Main story is about Kenobi trying to find a niche on Tatooine and his interactions with a local bar/store/whatever f...
