Completely forgot to post my review for this amazing book.
Another winner from Claudia Gray! If you loved Leia Princess of Alderaan you will love this !
This story is full of action and digs into the minds of Obi Wan and Qui Gon. We get to see new and different sides of the two and how they became such a good duo. There are many other new characters that fill these pages and make an epic tale.

Branwen Claudia Gray is seriously one of my favorite Star Wars authors! Have you read Lost Stars by her? Freaking fantastic book and I highly recommend it! My favorite Star Wars book EVER!!! 3w
Meaw_catlady @Branwen yes I did!! She is amazing ! I actually had never read any of her books till I met her at San Francisco Comic Con last year! She was so sweet and I bought Princess of Alderaan and loved it!! I found Lost Stars for like 5 bucks somewhere and enjoyed it so much! I also read her other non Star Wars stuff 3w
Branwen @Meaw_catlady YES! ME TOO! HER DEFY THE STARS SERIES?! SO GOOD! OMG! I LIVE FOR THAT SERIES! 3w
Meaw_catlady @Branwen I love your enthusiasm !! I haven‘t read that series yet! I‘m on the last book of her firebird series ! 3w
Branwen @Meaw_catlady Hahaha! Thank you! 🤗💕 Omg. I haven't read the Firebird series and I think I need to find it immediately? 💕📚 You have to read Defy the Stars! It's so good! And has androids! The robots not the phone! 🤣😂 3w

I'm a little behind on the #StarWarsBuddyRead but I finally finished this one. I enjoyed the plot and the background of the relationship between Qui Gon and Obi Wan. I did think the writing could use some work but overall it was a fun read. @Riveted_Reader_Melissa

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I enjoyed those parts too. 4w

Just an update for those following along with the #StarWarsBuddyRead this summer.

I fully enjoyed the first two this June, looking forward to the next two.

Some great nostalgia for anyone who loved the Jedi Apprentice series as a kid as much as I did. And yet truly it's on take on Obi-Wan & Qui-Gon's relationship which starts off quite tumultuous. Loved the background & insight into this time in the Jedi Order & the story-- full of complicated relationships & characters. Definitely recommend for Star Wars fans. Hoping to read Queen's Shadow soon, too.

1.tagged book, Material girl, Mystical world by Ruby Warrington, The Cactus Sarah Haywood (audiobook), The Borrower Rebecca Makkai (audiobook)
2. Harry Potter and the Sacred Text ( really excellent podcast !!!)
3. Lost Stars by Claudia Gray . My roommate and I like reading Star Wars books and we had a good discussion about this one last night at his bday dinner! He also recommended I listen to the Thrawn audiobook by Timothy Zahn #weekendreads

monalyisha What do you think of “Material Girl, Mystical World“? The tone of the blurb is seriously putting me off but it's maybe a tiny bit how I live my life & maybe that tension deserves some reflection, lol. 2mo
Meaw_catlady @monalyisha I‘m only a few pages in and I am enjoying it but I don‘t know how much I can relate it to my life . Because I am a poor working class witch who does not participate in the ritzy New York lifestyle that the author seems to have . 2mo

I enjoyed this one way more than I expected!

- Some prophecy hints about what‘s to come in the final installment this December.
- A few twists I didn‘t see coming
- How Dooku‘s slow slide to the Dark Side began, and
- Young Kenobi was so much more entertaining than I ever expected (& Pax & Rahara)

This is one of those that makes me regret that I won‘t be completely caught up with the new cannon books before the final film.

Up next for our #StarWarsBuddyRead we have 2 choices in June. You can read either or both, it‘s up to you.

I haven‘t read either of these yet, so I‘m going to try and read both this month. There are only a few months left until the next and last movie in the trilogy comes out in December, and I personally have quite a few new canon books I want to read yet before then. 😉

May the Force Be With You!

NovelGirl82 I‘m hoping to get to both of them this month! I‘m still finishing up last months now! 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @NovelGirl82 I understand, for once I‘m caught up on this one, but behind on my other bookclub....I can never seem to keep them all caught up at the same time. LOL! 3mo

4/5

This was such a fun look into Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi's relationship before The Phantom Menace. My only complaint is that I wish there had been more than a couple of vague references to The Jedi Apprentice series, but I do get that it doesn't really fit with the current canon.

It's a fun read. And the audiobook narrator does a great job with the different voices.

I should put myself on a book buying diet but I could not pass up getting these two titles! I didn‘t think they were a bad price for hardcover!! I love Claudia Gray and Master & Apprentice was calling my name!! I need to get control of my spending now tho. This weekend is pop culture con in Denver and I know I‘m gonna find some books and art I cannot resist there!! Pierce Brown and Blake Crouch will be attending ! Gonna get some books signed .

sebrittain I loved Queen's Shadow! I'm in the middle of Master and Apprentice right now, but so far it's great too! 3mo

I warned my girlfriend that I would be falling into a Star Wars pit as Episode IX approaches, and it has begun. This was an excellent examination of the tumultuous early days in Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan's relationship. A relatively small story, which allows for more focus on the characters. I didn't connect much with the new characters, though.

It's a long weekend, so I feel like I can still post this

1. Master and Apprentice by Claudia Gray and The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

2. "Whoever wrote the Jedi Code, thought Qui-Gon Jinn, never had to deal with the Hutts."

3. "A book is a dream you hold on your hands." - Neil Gaiman

Claudia Gray is my favorite Star Wars author, and I was so excited to meet her at Star Wars Celebration in April! I just finished reading her new book, Master and Apprentice, and wow - what a great dive into Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan‘s characters. Loved it! ❤️

Ooooo I so enjoyed this. The last couple of Star Wars books I‘ve read have been set earlier and it‘s been fascinating actually, to be pre-Luke and Leia. The relationship between Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon was complicated and set against an intriguing backdrop of a royal court and political upheaval. Twists I did no see coming. I love how Claudia Gray writes the Star Wars universe. I already eagerly await her next book! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was such a satisfying book. I love the prequel era so much and this delivered on what I wanted. The master and padawan relationship is so interesting to read about. The political intrigue was fun, and all the new characters were great. Claudia Gray writes Star Wars so masterfully!

Claudia truly is queen for getting me to read and enjoy a book about qui gon! There is A LOT of interesting tidbits and here and the new characters were wonderful, I need a whole book just about pax and rahara! That said this book was still........ dense. If it had been any longer it might have been a struggle. However I still enjoyed it!

Book riot did a piece on two upcoming Star Wars books for 2019 that will be focusing on the prequel material!
E.K. Johnston previous wrote Ahsoka, which is #starwarsbuddyread current book.
And Claudia Gray is writing a story about Qui-gon and Obi-wan! I am so excited for this one!

@Riveted_Reader_Melissa did you know about these?

Riveted_Reader_Melissa No, but they both look great to me! 12mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Right now I was tentatively thinking about starting next year with the Aftermath Trilogy, and then from there we should be able to read the books pretty much in publication order... unless you have a better idea to organize them. Or do you want to read any of the Rebel‘s books, like A New Dawn mixed in too? 12mo
InLibrisVeritas @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I think publication order would be easiest for everyone I think. A New Dawn was the very first book in the new canon I think, so I am okay with adding it in. 12mo
See All 13 Comments
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @InLibrisVeritas I watched the series Rebels, and it tied into Thrawn and Maul for instance, but I have no idea if their books overlap those parts or if anyone else watched the series or were interested in that spin-off group of characters. I‘m thinking, I may be the only cartoon series watcher 😂 12mo
InLibrisVeritas I watched it! But I understand, I think A New Dawn barely overlaps anywhere other than Rebels. Other than Hera being mentioned very briefly in Rogue One. It definitely sits somewhat a part if you dont watch the cartoons. Perhaps we could tag those who have been reading with us and get a general consensus? 12mo
InLibrisVeritas @Riveted_Reader_Melissa whoops forgot to tag you in the last message. 😅 12mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @InLibrisVeritas That‘s ok! That sounds like a good plan, once we get there... I was just thinking about it today as I started Ahsoka, who also has Rebels overlaps, and her book starts with Maul who we know now shows up in some of the newer prequel stories 😂 12mo
InLibrisVeritas @Riveted_Reader_Melissa True! I am kind of excited for all the crossover that's happening. One day maybe we will see some of the cartoon characters on the big screen 12mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @InLibrisVeritas That would be great too! 12mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @InLibrisVeritas I‘d love to have Ahsoka and/or Ezra pop out of the timeline in the future to help/train Rey. And since they have never been cast as live action characters before, and were quite young when they disappeared into time...it would be easy to cast them both now and build on that story. 12mo
InLibrisVeritas @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yes! That's exactly what I am hoping for, they both have murky storylines that set them up nicely for a movie intro. 12mo
Alicia Omgggg I‘m late to the party but thank you for posting! I am so excited for these especially bc I love Claudia Grays books! 12mo
InLibrisVeritas @Alicia You're welcome! It's nice to have to have others who totally understand my fangirling over news like this. 😂 12mo

I'm crying over these two new forthcoming Star Wars books. It's like all my middle school dreams realized! I was always obsessed with Padmé as a kid, and I absolutely loved the Jedi Apprentice series about Obi-Wan as a padawan. The fangirl in me is freaking out so hard about all this great Star Wars book news 😂
