The Trail of the Jedi
Anakin Skywalker knows that Obi-Wan Kenobi did not choose him as his apprentice. It was the dying wish of Obi-Wan's own Master, Qui-Gon Jinn, that brought them together. Now, Anakin is beginning to doubt his Master's commitment... and Obi-Wan is starting to wonder if he will ever be as good as a Master as Qui-Gon.
With these things in mind, Master and apprentice head out on a training exercise that soon turns into a struggle to survive. A squad of bounty hunters has been hired to capture the Jedi – and they will stop at nothing to do it. Anakin and Obi-Wan must avoid the traps and ambushes... and try to discover who is behind the deadly Jedi hunt.
