Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
There is something for everyone in this action-adventure and science-fiction story. Based on the popular Star Wars movies, the book features well-known characters such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Yoda. In this story the brave Jedi are on a mission to protect a ten-year-old boy from ruthless bounty hunters. The boy had stumbled upon a plot to assassinate a group of galaxy leaders and the bounty hunters want to stop him from spreading this information. After a fierce battle with the bounty hunters, Obi-Wan and Siri, his master's apprentice, find themselves alone aboard a dying space ship. Confronted with this life-threatening crisis, Obi-Wan and Siri are finally able to express their true feelings of love for one another. Fortunately, they survive their ship's crash but now they are confronted with an even greater problem: they must choose between their feelings for one another or a life as a Jedi hero. This book contains a series of subplots each with action that builds, climaxes, and closes. These subplots all tie in to the exciting and action-packed main story. Anyone who reads this book will surely enjoy it. You do not need to be a fan of science fiction to appreciate this exciting and well-written story. 2005, Scholastic, Ages 12 up.

    AAAHHHH!!!!!!!!! I love this book sooo much!

    Ok this book is so amazing! I just loved everything about it, you would to!! Even those who aren't Star wars fans would love it to! THis is because it is definately a romance novel... I would NOT recomend this book for children under 11, mainly because of the few parts that are really sad and emotional, kids under this age would not understand that. Also, it's definately a romance and there are a few iffy and questionable parts for kids.. Other than these for teens and those finding themselves in a relationship or those who just love these types of books this is definately for you! I am a teen and I absolutely loved this book, I read it in two days and I cried so much (PS keep a tissue box nearby!) and laughed so much reading this book.. Anyways you have to read this amazing book, it rocks! Also, jude watson has written other series, feel free to check em out because they are also quite good! Thanks and Enjoy!

    Outstanding! Powerful Insight!

    Secrets of the Jedi provides fascinating insight into the character development of Qui-Gon Jinn (sadly, a highly underestimated individual), Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Anakin Skywalker, focusing upon specific events that occurred during the often-mysterious earlier portions of their lives (love, companionship, self-doubt, master-padawan relationship, discovery of the Force) and forged them into legendary Jedi Knights. A remarkable read both for die-hard fans and those new to our galaxy who wish to attain a better understanding of the commanding association that is the Jedi Order.

    Secrets of the Jedi (Star Wars Series)

    I LOVED IT!!!! It was so good! I especially loved the part about Obi-Wan and Siri. It was so well done! It only makes me wonder what would have happened if they had left the order? The whole galaxy would be TOTALY different. The part when Siri- OOOPS! I can't ruin the ending, but if you have already read it you know what I'm talking abou, IT WAS SOOOO SAD!!! I guess it would have happend during Order 66- or when Anakin killed all the Jedi at the Temple. I guess this makes it a TINY bit less painful for Obi-Wan, knowing that Anakin didn't do it. It made me mad too that Anakin didn't realize Obi-Wan and Siri loved each other. If he had, mabey, just mabey, he would have told Obi-Wan about Padm'e and Obi-Wan could have helped him-but just mabey. It also makes me like Qui-Gon alot less. Of all the Jedi to tell...I CAN'T SAY IT, BUT IT MAKES REALLY MAD AT QUI-GON!!! That STILL makes me mad, and I read the book almost a year ago! But I love the part Obi-Wan and Siri decide to be best friends again.I also like that Obi-Wan gets Siri's warming crystal. That's SO SWEET! I wonder if it's still in his pocket during Revenge of the Sith? I wouldn't be suprised. Over all-EXCELLENT book, a MUST READ for ALL Star Wars fans[yes, even the boys, there's some good action scenes with bounty hunters too].LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Secrets of the Jedi (Star Wars Series)

    I LOVED this book! It was sooo good! I especially liked the part with Obi-Wan and Siri ) I always hoped Ob-Wan would get a girl, and I'm very glad it was Siri. I do agree that Taly was a brat though. It also makes me dislike Qui-Gon and Yoda alot more, and the part when Siri died was sooo sad!!! Over all-a DEFANITE MUST READ for ALL Star Wars fans.LOVED IT!

    Understable continuity flaws

    it is always inevitable when an author tries to 'add to' or 'change/revise' an existing plot that one ends up with continuity issues. It is pretty difficult not to be left wondering what Ms. Watson could have done with the Jedi Quest series involving the same characters if the romance plot had been developed before she wrote them. Still, the explanation for the 'gaps' is somewhat plausible. it does, however, feel like the last few chapters were hurried. overall an amusing read.

    I knew

    I thought this was a cool book. Before the book, I always imagined that someday, they would find that they liked each other,but I never thought it would became a book.But the part about Anakin not realizing what happened, bothered me.If Obi-wan could figure out what happened between Qui-gon and Tahl, then Anakin can CERTAINLY figure out what happened between Obi-wan and Siri.He's not THAT stupid! All-in-all, I thought it was a great book.

    Jedi Gold

    I'll be the first to admit that I didn't forsee the 'love theme' of the book and therefore didn't predict that Siri and Obi-Wan get together as teenagers. Still, their getting-together was done well, or as well as it could have been considering most people will probably go, 'Heeeeeey, there was no romantic tension in any of the stories that take place AFTER this one...'. It was a touching story nonetheless and benefitted from Watson's writing talent. As another reviewer said, however, the story really begins to sag in the second part. Let's face it: we all know that Obi-Wan and Siri are STILL not going to get together since Siri is a dispensible charater considering what happens to ALL Jedi as a result of Anakin's turn to the dark side. And yes, the Anakin-Obi-Wan relationship was portrayed incorrectly.

    Secrets Revealed

    This book was pretty good, but not the best that I have read. I would've thought that Anakin and Obi-wan would be doing more important things at that time, like fighting Clone Wars battles and I would think that Anakin would've been more evil. But the Siri and Obi-wan part was great! I thought that Taly was a brat though.

    Secrets Not So Secretive

    As usual with the era-crossover books in this series, I was left with mixed feelings about this book. The first part, Obi-Wan and Siri discovering their love for each as teenagers, was nicely done- and Qui-Gon's reaction was handled beautifully in light of how recent the time is to Tahl's death. The second part, however, lost some points with me- mostly because of how JW wrote the relationship between Anakin and Obi-Wan at this point, distant and troubled. The other books in the CW era have it the opposite, with the two of them closer than ever and even finishing each other's sentences at times. That definitely brought the book down a bit for me, that SotJ didn't even get their friendship down right. Still, the relationship between Anakin and Padme was captured wonderfully (there were even hints of intimacy in there). The end was predictable, but that's mostly because we all know what's just on the horizon for our favorite Jedi Knights. All in all, it's worth the read.
