Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker must stem the tide of the raging Clone Wars and forge a new bond as Jedi Knights.

The Clone Wars have begun. Battle lines are being drawn throughout the galaxy. With every world that joins the Separatists, the peace guarded by the Jedi Order is slipping through their fingers.

After an explosion devastates Cato Neimoidia, the jewel of the Trade Federation, the Republic is blamed and the fragile neutrality of the planet is threatened. The Jedi dispatch Obi-Wan Kenobi, one of the Order's most gifted diplomatic minds, to investigate the crime and maintain the balance that has begun to dangerously shift. As Obi-Wan investigates with the help of a heroic Neimoidian guard, he finds himself working against the Separatists who hope to draw the planet into their conspiracy-and senses the sinister hand of Asajj Ventress in the mists that cloak the planet.

Amid the brewing chaos, Anakin Skywalker rises to the rank of Jedi Knight. Despite the mandate that Obi-Wan travel alone—and his former master's insistence that he listen this time—Anakin's headstrong determination means nothing can stop him from crashing the party and bringing along a promising but conflicted youngling.

Once a Padawan to Obi-Wan, Anakin now finds himself on equal—but uncertain—footing with the man who raised him. The lingering friction between them increases the danger for everyone around them. The two knights must learn a new way to work together—and they must learn quickly, to save Cato Neimoidia and its people from the fires of war. To overcome the threat they face they must grow beyond master and apprentice. They must stand together as brothers.

The Force is strong with this one

An absolutely wonderful novel which tells a gripping original story extending the narrative of the Prequel Trilogy and focusing on 'that business on Cato Neimoidia'.

Mike Chen does a fantastic job in describing the locations and expanding on character motivations. Each chapter kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more. It was touching to see Obi-Wan and Anakin's relationship grow in Canon once more, and gives us Anakin's heartwarming connections to Younglings.
I didn't expect to see certain characters to appear and Easter Eggs from other Star Wars content across multiple media which was 'a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one'.

Jonathan Davis does a great job in narrating the novel, with each character being clearly distinguished despite just hearing one voice the entire time. And in times of tension, drama, etc Davis delivers it well. In summary, the audiobook keeps me immersed in the world presented in the novel, which helped with the inclusion of sound effects and score from John Williams.

As a Star Wars fan of 20+ years, Mike Chen has my full gratitude and respect for writing such an exciting and moving piece of Canon content based on my favourite Trilogy and characters, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. This is perfect material to read especially for those who enjoy the Prequel Trilogy and its connected series like The Clone Wars, and also acts as a great novel to read in preparation for the upcoming Disney+ Series 'Obi-Wan Kenobi'

10/10 would read again. The Force is strong with this one.

Brotherhood

Gives an interesting and exciting take on the period after Anakin becomes a Jedi Knight.
Obi wan is of playing negotiator, meanwhile Sideous is stoking both the fires of War, Separatist and Gar.

Simply beautiful

Loved everything about this book. Getting to see so much more on obi wan and anakin both in peak Jedi mode but also simply living their lives. I love that. Getting to see a glimpse of their everyday lives and really get to understand their thought process. 10/10 couldn’t recommend this book enough for any sequel lover.

Gripping story- fills in some gaps

Really good story and as a Star Wars fan and someone getting into The Clone Wars, this is a really good story bridging some gaps from Attack of The Clones and the start of The Clones Wars. Recommend for any Star Wars fan.

Brotherhood - brilliant

Excellent story and brilliantly narrated by Jonathan Davis. The bond between Obi Wan and Anakin is really well explores and ties in well to the Kenobi TV series with the feelings of a brotherhood forsaken and betrayed.

Really Pleasant.

Really enjoyable read, does a good job of connecting the Attack of the Clones and Clone Wars versions of Anakin and Obi-Wan.

Quite humorous in places, occasionally poking fun at the prequels dialogue.

The story is good but feels like it ends with a bit of a fizzle, which is only a problem if you look at the book as a stand alone read.

Spends a little too much time retelling things we have already seen.

A good story about two brothers

A very good audiobook, I really enjoyed it. It’s clear that Mike Chen gets these characters and it’s so refreshing to see them become brothers. I myself am a prequel trilogy fan, so it is great to see the clone wars show,along with this book develop these characters and make them more nuisanced.
How Anakin was dealing with the changes in his life really resonated with me, how he found it difficult to operate his new mechanical arm (courtesy of the count) and always contemplating his mother’s tale for strength and guidance.
Whether it’s them mowing down battle droids or having an interesting conversation, there’s always something to like. One of the big advantages of the book is that it changes your perspective on the neimodians. Like all other species, they are worth listening to and to prejudge them isn’t doing them justice. Jonathan Davis does an excellent job of narrating the book. I was excited to see him narrate after listening to the Bane trilogy so hats off to him.
However, there are disadvantages for me. The padawan character that works with Anakin was fine, I didn’t really connect with her but she had some interesting force abilities. I felt some chapters weren’t as detailed as others and were quite slow.
Apart from that I enjoyed the book, probably one of my favourite canon books and it brought back Dex so I can’t really complain.
