Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Jedi Trial
This was a very good book that I thoroughly enjoyed. It deals with the mission that Anakin Skywalker completed, which counted for his Trials to Jedi Knighthood. Obi-wan Kenobi wasn’t in this book, but Anakin is still his Padawan. Anakin assists Nejaa Halcyon, another Jedi Master, in a war between the Republic and the Separatists on a planet which holds a key communications facility. We briefly see Assaj Ventress and Count Dooku in this book, but they do not play a major role. As far as what I have read to date, Anakin is the only recurring character in this book that plays a major role in the book.
I somewhat lost my order when I picked these books up again, because the order I had before must have changed. This book takes place when Anakin is still a Padawan, but in my original list, I had it listed after the Medstar Novels. A small blurb on Yoda’s DataPad states, ”
** The Cestus Deception and Jedi Trial were originally placed later in the period between Episodes II and III, but were recently moved forward by The Essential Reader’s Companion in order to reconcile them with The Clone Wars TV show and books. Anakin Skywalker is already a Jedi knight at the beginning of The Clone Wars, but is still a padawan in The Cestus Deception and at the beginning of Jedi Trial.”
Also out of order is the book I began after Jedi Trial, which is Republic Commando: True Colors. I very much enjoyed the 2 previous books in this series and I am looking forward to this installment, but for some reason I had it out of order on my reading list. It should have been before Medstar 1, so I am grabbing it now and reading through it. After this book is completed, I will be back on track and pickup with Dark Disciple.
