    A very enjoyable story

    This is the best book so far and I bet that there will be more to come. It showes that the fear of the loss of a loved one can cloud the judgement of even a Jedi. A very good book that give you a big mix of emotions.

    Gotta tell ya this!!

    I have not read this book yet, but I can tell by the reviews that many people are scared about what's going to happen to Tahl. Well I got some news! In the new book J.P. Special Edition 1#, it takes place when Ani is Obi's padawan. It also says that Bant is Tahl's padawan, do you see it? Tahl can't die and she WON'T(unless, of course, they mix them up, which wouldn't be good). Well, I bet this will be a great book. Keep up the good work, Jude!!

    Mystery un-solved

    There is a mystery in every Apprentice book.And most of the time they are solved.But not in this book.No one knows who killed Roan and Ewane and who kid napped the twins.This may sound impossible but I think that it was the Young and dark apprentice:Xantos.When you read the book it says that the kid napper is half human half machine, or at least thats what they think.

    Where's Obi-Wan?

    I rate number 14 4 stars. I like them more with Obi-Wan!(Jedi APPRENTICE)And Jude why did you skip Obi-Wan up to 16? I guess overall it was good only 2 things could have made it better, more about Obi-Wan and the ending. Jude why do you leave us hanging like that?? Hope this won't be as bad as the cliff hanger in books 11-13!

    A Good Book

    I thought the book was good but not great. I really like the concept of Qui-Gon falling in Love, and I really hope that Tahl dosen't die because that would be terrible. Did anyone notice that Obi-Wan kept calling Qui-Gon by his name and not Master. Now I know its normal to call someone by their first name but I thought it was kinda wierd. I also hoped that Qui and Obi would be a little more close but I also understand that Qui was worried about Tahl, Oh, I dont know, Maybe Im to much of a Obi-Wan fan. It was a good Qui-Gon book though.

    The Title Should Have Been 'Jedi Master: Qui-Gon's Love Life'

    When I read a Jedi apprentice book, I expect to read about Obi-Wan, hence the name Jedi APPRENTICE. There's more I like to read about - several things, in fact. Obi-Wan's life (relationships, problems, etc.), Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon's relationship, Qui-Gon's life - but that doesn't mean that I want the whole book to be about Qui-Gon and his love life! Where was Obi-Wan hiding??? If the books were intended to be all the way around about Qui-Gon, you know what they would be called. If we had even equal amounts from Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan, I'd be a happy camper right now. The plot was okay, and I stress OKAY. I just don't like how the books skipped up to Obi-Wan being 16. I liked him better when he was younger. He was more fun to read about then. I thought for sure that Obi-Wan would get to know one of the twins. Why else would they be be the same age? That can't just be coincidental. What was all this with him protecting Qui-Gon all the time? Once was good enough, but how many times did he do so through the book? The book is mainly about Qui-Gon having visions about Tahl, then chasing after her through her mission. Qui-Gon and Tahl finally express their true feelings for each other and then are parted again. Obi-Wan is jealous, left out, but still loyal, and Qui-Gon basically loses it and (gasp!) cracks a table, yes, cracks a table. It's not what I was expecting at all. If Tahl dies, I have a feeling Qui-Gon won't be himself for a very long time. I hope the next one will be better. It would be nice if Obi-Wan hooked up with someone, and maybe we could get a nice cliffhanger with Obi-Wan in mortal danger for while. That would be nice.
