    1 thought on “The Only Witness”

    1. Qui-Gon who is still hurting from the loss of his beloved earlier in the series is in a deep depression and has managed to alienate his apprentice by rebuffing all offers of help and comradeship. Both are nevertheless ordered to travel to a planet ruled by a powerful crime family and to escort an important witness, who possesses insider knowledge about the crime family's affairs to Coruscant.This is one of the books in the Jedi Apprentice series for younger readers. Unfortunately, as with many b [...]

    2. Short fun read. Good for junior readers however not without violence. These smaller Star Wars series for junior readers have plots and are easy to read, wish discovered these books back then when I started out reading as a young child. Starting out with Harry Potter and Encyclopedias was not the easiest thing for a grade 1 kid whose English was not her first language.The main character of the episode Lena Cobrals might have inspired The Clone Wars' Satine Krize (back story and all). Totally forg [...]

    3. The change of scene was a welcome one after the oppressive Apsolon trilogy, and the witness protection mission exposed another aspect of Jedi duties. Unfortunately the author passed up on the opportunity to create a more than cursory description of Frego, and the characters are pretty much two dimensional apart from Lena and Mica. And as much as I enjoy reading about the alternative paths Jedi can take to conflict, and the change of pace, I felt there wasn’t enough action. The danger Lena expe [...]

    4. The series is (finally) drawing to a close and a simple mission for Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan, all contained in the one book! This led the story to be tighter, and the result was a better read :)

    5. Story: 6/10"A satisfying and enjoyable little side mission to help start wrapping up this series"

    6. This seemed more like a filler story, and also somewhat weaker than previous storylines. I really thought it would go in a different direction, so at least they fooled me?

    7. The Only Witness serves as the coda to the New Apsolon trilogy, as it gives Qui-Gon an opportunity to come to terms with his grief over Tahl's death. He and Obi-Wan travel to the planet Frego, which is ruled by a crime family. One of the members of the family who married into it is ready to turn evidence on them, but she needs Jedi protection back to Coruscant to ensure her safety and survival. Once there, the two Jedi become embroiled in further protection, and Qui-Gon learns that the woman the [...]

    8. Star Wars Legends Project #57Background: The Only Witness came out in February 2002. It was written by Jude Watson.The Only Witness begins some months after The Call to Vengeance (my review), 40 years before the Battle of Yavin and 8 years before The Phantom Menace. Most of the characters are brand-new, one-0ff characters (plus brief appearances by Yoda and Mace Windu). This book also features the first-ever appearance of Jedi Librarian Jocasta Nu, just a few months ahead of the release of Attac [...]

    9. The Only Witness is the penultimate novel in the Jedi Apprentice series--not counting the two "special editions"--and, though this installment has some high spots, it's not up to the standard set by the previous books. Though the story was good, the writing was slightly inferior, and the ending was a bit shocking; too much so, in fact, for young children. It's a shame, though; the story had more twists and turns than most of the previous entries in the series. My only hope is that the eighteenth [...]

    10. Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are sent to Frego to escort a witness back to the Senate. Lena is a widow to a crime family's son (and brother) who wanted out. It's a dark story that shows, in a juvenile way, the dangers of families who operate in the drug and weapons business. Lena is strong-willed, even among disaster. It' understandable and actually realistic. She finds something to focus on other than her sorrow and fear, keeping her mind on something else to prevent her from sinking into depression.

    11. 2.5 starsThis was a fairly weak case/mission, but it continues to the story of Qui-Gon healing after the loss of Tahl and nearly losing himself to rage and grief. He still is holding himself apart from Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan is hurt by Qui-Gon shutting him out and grieving alone.Obi-Wan has a crush on their witness, but it does not impact the story overly much. (Praise be.)I really liked the ending scene.

    12. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are sent to Frego to protect a witness set to testify against the crime family of which she is a member. The Jedi are assigned to escort her to Coruscant, but she neglects to tell them that she actually has no hard evidence against her family, pissing off Qui-Gonn with the delay while allowing Obi-Wan to un-Jedi luxury of a romantic relationship. An interesting tale of betrayal, deception, and action.

    13. Still way too much angsty Qui-Gon, but at least the plot was interesting, and they seem to have wrapped up the manpain arc. Hopefully. It was about four books too long anyway. I liked the main character a lot, but they killed off too many secondary female characters. All in all, this series is loosing a lot of its tropey fun vibe. Only two more to go.

    14. This was one of the of my favorite books in the series, and actually the first one I read even though it was not the first in the series. That's the other thing about these books, you don't always have to read them in Chronological order, the author made it accessible to anyone at any point (except in the few books that were in a sequence, but even then you can catch on pretty quickly).

    15. Suitable for 8+ and those who have seen the films.Qui Gon is still in mourning so gets an easy mission from the jedi council, witness protection. Things aren't what they seem on the mafia style world where family is everything. A good character based read.

    16. A terrible read. Yes, I know it is a young readers' book. But as I have read all the other books in the series up to this one, I expected more of the average story telling from the other books. No, this was just flat-out bad.

    17. Wow, This book was incredibly boring. It mostly dealt with Qui-Gon recovering from his grief. the plot is very uninteresting.

    18. This book didn't seem up to par with the rest of the books in the series. It seemed like it was quickly written, and there wasn't much intrigue or deception involved.

    19. A nice little 'get back to business' story after Qui-Gon's trauma. It is a good stand alone story, while still addressing the ongoing emotions and sense of loss from the previous novels.

    20. For an organization that discourages romances and emotion, the last 4 or 5 novels has ignored this to the point of being somewhat nauseating. 1 or 2 instances fine, but enough is enough.
