Master and Apprentice
by Claudia Gray (2019)
When Jedi Rael Averross, a former student of Dooku, requests assistance with a political dispute, Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi travel to the royal court of Pijal. What should be a simple assignment quickly becomes clouded by deceit and politics.
This is less of a Star Wars adventure and more of a court intrigue story. Gray writes with a smooth and easy prose, however the pacing is slow and in the hands of a less capable author I would have given up without finishing. In the end, it’s not very intriguing or exciting. And the majority of the plot is crammed into the last quarter of the story.
So in the end, only an average read.
