Publisher's Summary

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.

Slow in places, but picks up the pace

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Get past the dull hick stuff at the start, then it enthrals. Fantastic background sound effects, straight from the movies. Even Chewbacca's in there briefly!


What did you like best about this story?

The first few chapters about the social lives of the 'moisture farmers' in Ben Kenobi's area was pretty dull and hard going. But improved when the pace picked up. The sections about Kenobi and the tuskens were by far the best. Carried on the events after Episode III quite nicely.


What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

Excellent. And Kenobi (McGregor's) accent was spot on.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

More so as the book progressed.


Any additional comments?

Difficult brief for authors doing tie-in stories - you have to make sure you don't cross any 'canon' elements from the movies. Good job, overall.
