Obi-Wan Kenobi’s future as a Jedi Knight is all but lost. His thirteenth birthday is fast approaching and he has not been chosen by a Master. Qui-Gon Jinn is reluctant to take a new Padawan after his former student, Xanatos, left the Jedi Order. Both find themselves on separate missions to the mining planet, Bandomeer, where darkness shrouds the work of Offworld Corporation, under the control of Xanatos himself.
Qui-Gon Jinn's past is not at rest. How can he forge a bond with young Obi-Wan Kenobi while he is haunted by the betrayal of his first apprentice—Xanatos? Xanatos was also a promising student . . . until the dark side of the Force intervened. Qui-Gon thought he was gone forever.
But now Xanatos is back.
And he wants revenge.
