    the end of this series is just.bittersweet.because this book has a lot of parallels with the first one, once again we have an anakin who is full of fear, anger and insecurity but now he s like I LL PROVE EVERYONE HOW POWERFUL I AM with an obi wan who cares about him and thinking of qui gon but now he s like I M WORRIED ABOUT HIM BUT CAN T EXPLAIN EXACTLY WHY i think the entire series can be summarized in something i read in one the books that said something like obi wan sighed oops, ana the end of this series is just.bittersweet.because this book has a lot of parallels with the first one, once again we have an anakin who is full of fear, anger and insecurity but now he s like I LL PROVE EVERYONE HOW POWERFUL I AM with an obi wan who cares about him and thinking of qui gon but now he s like I M WORRIED ABOUT HIM BUT CAN T EXPLAIN EXACTLY WHY i think the entire series can be summarized in something i read in one the books that said something like obi wan sighed oops, anakin said.THAT S THEM damn, i love them.funny that as much as i love anakin and obi wan, i didn t want to read this series because i was like, it s not canon i m still fairly new to the fandom but at this point i ve already learned that canon is whatever i say it is and i ll continue to read books in which these two appear

    My reaction to this whole series in general Ouch The Way of the Apprentice tricks you into thinking this ll be some generic, mediocre middle grade story, and then it pulls the ouch rug out from underneath your feet And it did get pretty intense during several of the previous books view spoiler see TYRO S DEATH, MY GOSH hide spoiler , but The Final Showdown is ouch Ouch Those last few pages ouch.Ouch Star Wars is our modern day mythology and Anakin s fall is, like Ragnarok, set My reaction to this whole series in general Ouch The Way of the Apprentice tricks you into thinking this ll be some generic, mediocre middle grade story, and then it pulls the ouch rug out from underneath your feet And it did get pretty intense during several of the previous books view spoiler see TYRO S DEATH, MY GOSH hide spoiler , but The Final Showdown is ouch Ouch Those last few pages ouch.Ouch Star Wars is our modern day mythology and Anakin s fall is, like Ragnarok, set in stone, so nothing related to that fall should be particularly, surprisingly painful, especially not from a middle grade series that I read in four days But it is It really is Watson makes Obi Wan a devastatingly lovable character he was already one of my favorites but she pushes him to his breaking points as much as she pushes Anakin, so the doomed Master Padawan relationship is EVEN WORSE Watson also makes Anakin a complex person, a person with legitimate emotional problems and confusions a person who is too haunted by his own Master s seemingly perfect relationship with Qui Gon to even try to ask for help most times The whole Obi Wan Anakin relationship is just made 100% WORSE in this series and it s wonderful, she said while sobbing into a hankie

    Ehhh This isn t as final a wrap up as it could have been, and Anakin is just such a jerk in this one it s kind of hard to read I am interested to move on to the Last of the Jedi series.

    Definitely my favorite book in this series What a finale.I m feeling many things For my review, I m just gonna list stuff I loved and a few things I didn t like so much.So, stuff I loved 1 Anakin Everything about him that we get in this book We get to see the extent of his jealousy towards Ferus, who is chosen to become a jedi knight before Anakin, who of course sees this as a personal insult, and the lengths he is willing to go to beat his enemies both actual dark side enemies and his pe Definitely my favorite book in this series What a finale.I m feeling many things For my review, I m just gonna list stuff I loved and a few things I didn t like so much.So, stuff I loved 1 Anakin Everything about him that we get in this book We get to see the extent of his jealousy towards Ferus, who is chosen to become a jedi knight before Anakin, who of course sees this as a personal insult, and the lengths he is willing to go to beat his enemies both actual dark side enemies and his personal enemies, aka Ferus Olin Reading this book just made it abundantly clear that though Anakin is powerful and has a special connection to the force, he is not ready to be a jedi He is a loose cannon, impulsive, angry and jealous which are not the attributes of a proper jedi.2 All of the other characters and how their stories went I loved having the whole Jedi Quest gan together again for the last book FerusSiri, TruRy Gaul, SoaraDarra and AnakinObi Wan Ferus especially moved me in this book he had some great emotional moments in this story and I liked how the series ended for his character Darra is a joy and I ve always loved her, evennow after re reading this book view spoiler Darra s ending is sad and brutal and breaks my heart, though I liked that she died protecting her friend and a fellow jedi, like a jedi should And the way everyone reacted Soara crying, Ferus blaming himself so much that he actually leaves the Order and Tru screaming, was so damn heart breaking hide spoiler Also Tru s story view spoiler ending with him realizing that Anakin knew about his malfunctioning saber and didn t say anything to make Ferus look bad, and severing their friendship was emotional I liked their relationship, but I can t blame Tru for never being able to really trust Anakin again hide spoiler 3 The planet, Korriban It s an ancient sith planet and the way Watson describes it is so good It s oppressive, evil, angry, frightening, threatening and I loved seeing our characters reacting to the presence of the dark side It s an awesome setting and Jude Watson did an awesome job bringing it and its mystic energy to life.4 I just gotta mention Ferus again When I first read this series as a kid I didn t like him cause Anakin was the main character and Ferus was clearly mean to him and stopping him from being the hero, but now, after re reading all the books I ve come to really love Ferus He is a good person, a kind person even though he has no friends and people make fun of him all the time and a fartrustworthy Jedi than Anakin because he is calm, collected, humble and helpful I ve just grown to love him a lot, and I had to say it And now, some stuff I didn t like Oraccurately, the one thing I didn t like so much.1 The fact that we never got to see Siri s reaction to view spoiler Ferus leaving the order Of course everyone knows she s going to be sad and heartbroken to see her student go, but I would ve loved to have seen that, them saying goodbye or something hide spoiler If that would ve been added, the book would ve been pretty much all I wanted from the last book.I m so glad I read this whole series I m sad there s nobooks, but I feel vey content This finale did a good job wrapping up this fun, little series

    Watson brings the Jedi Quest series to a close with an aptly titled novel Obi Wan, Anakin, Siri, Ferus, Soara, Darra, Ry Gaul, and Tru travel to Korriban, the ancient home world of the Sith, to face down Jenna Zan Arbor and Granta Omega Granta has finally done enough against the Jedi to gain attention of the Sith, and it s there that he and Jenna will finally meet them and hope to become a part of their order All of the main characters that began this adventure in The Way of the Apprentice re Watson brings the Jedi Quest series to a close with an aptly titled novel Obi Wan, Anakin, Siri, Ferus, Soara, Darra, Ry Gaul, and Tru travel to Korriban, the ancient home world of the Sith, to face down Jenna Zan Arbor and Granta Omega Granta has finally done enough against the Jedi to gain attention of the Sith, and it s there that he and Jenna will finally meet them and hope to become a part of their order All of the main characters that began this adventure in The Way of the Apprentice return to bring it to a close.Watson tried to parallel the events of The Way of the Apprentice, reigniting the rivalry between Anakin and Ferus, though in truth, the bulk of that rivalry is due to Anakin provoking Ferus It s still hard to be sympathetic with Anakin, since his ego gets in the way of his being a Jedi He still feels the need to be the best, to make everything a competition, and it s that characteristic that makes things go so terribly wrong on the mission.I get it Anakin isn t supposed to be a fully sympathetic character Watson balances a fine line of making his character compassionate enough for us to like him, but self centered enough for us to recognize how unprepared he is to be a Jedi With The Final Showdown, Watson isn t just referring to the Jedi versus Omega she s also referring to Anakin versus the rest of the Jedi Order In the end, it s clear that he s not ready, and since we know the movies, we know he ll never be ready It s Obi Wan s insistence at training him and the sudden need forJedi that ultimately play into how Anakin becomes a Jedi.At different points in the series, I got frustrated with Obi Wan for giving Anakin so many breaks in his training, but in retrospect, what was the alternative To throw him out of the Order with all that power and let him fend for himself I m wondering now if Obi Wan was always well aware of Anakin s limitations, but figured he could serve as a positive influence on him in the hopes that some training would be better than none at all How much faster would Anakin have fallen to the Dark Side without that guidance I still feel that the Jedi Apprentice is a better series than Jedi Quest, since Qui Gon and Obi Wan make for ainteresting relationship than Obi Wan and Anakin, but I m pleased with how Watson winds up the series She doesn t make things easy for Anakin, and she creates a clearer picture of how Anakin changes so much between Episode I and Episode II I still wish she would have put a bitfocus on how he became so arrogant, but she makes strong enough suggestions as to not make it a complete mystery I just would have preferred it beingon stage
