The Way of the Apprentice is the first official book in the Star Wars: Jedi Quest series written by Jude Watson. Unlike the Jedi Quest title Path to Truth, which preceded it, The Way of the Apprentice is the first in the series to be numbered.
Set between Episode I and Episode II, JEDI QUEST traces the emergence and education of Anakin Skywalker as a young Jedi devoted to the Force—and tempted by its dark side.
Fourteen-year-old Anakin Skywalker is strong in the ways of the Force. His lightsaber skills are exceptional, his piloting is legendary. He should be an ideal Jedi apprentice. And yet, there is so much he still has to learn.
It is up to Obi-Wan Kenobi to teach him these things. But on a mission to a planet threatened by a toxic disaster, Obi-Wan and Anakin are separated. Anakin and three other apprentices—one of them his rival—must work together in order to survive. Anakin's instructions are clear ... but are they right?
Anakin Skywalker's destiny will determine the future of a galaxy. These are the events that form his fate.
