Publisher's summaryEdit


The Jedi Temple is a place of secrets and trust. Inside its walls, a legacy is passed down from generation to generation of peace, justice, and strength. But that legacy can be broken. Sometimes the greatest enemies rise from within…

Lorian Nod is a promising Jedi apprentice. A Padawan named Dooku is his best friend. Under the watchful eye of Yoda, they are preparing to become Jedi Knights. Dooku knows their fate is intertwined… yet he is not prepared for a turn of events that reveals the dark side to him for the first time.

Years later, Dooku is a Jedi Master and Lorian Nod is a pirating outcast. With an unforeseen desire for revenge, Dooku works to thwart his former friend—even if it means crossing his own apprentice Qui-Gon Jinn…

When Qui-Gon himself becomes a Jedi Master, the specter of Lorian Nod still looms. As Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan Kenobi struggle to find their place as Master and Padawan, they must work together to prevent an interplanetary threat—and to outwit a very familiar enemy…

During the Clone Wars, Lorian Nod wants to play a pivotal role as the Republic battles to keep hold of a strategic planet. On one side, Obi-Wan and his apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, must decide whether they can trust such an infamous figure. On the other side, the now compromised Count Dooku has a score to settle against his old nemesis…


Plot summaryEdit

A young apprentice Dooku at the age of 13 and his friend, Lorian Nod, got into Dooku's new masters room. Lorian discovers an ancient Sith holocron that belongs to Thame. Lorian convinces Dooku to open it, but the young apprentice refuses, upstanding the inpatient Lorian. Lorian then feels like Dooku will never learn, and while Dooku wandered off, Lorian took the holocron. Dooku said to Nod he would not take the holocron, since it was Lorian's problem. Lorian begged and begged, until Oppo Rancisis came in. He found the holocron and said the Council will talk to both of the apprentices. Lorian burst that Dooku took the holocron, and that left Dooku in crisis. Dooku, till the next day, joined a special challenge, held by Yoda and Oppo. The challenge was to get fruit from the market in Coruscant and bring it back. Whoever was tagged with a lightsaber was out, and the team who brings back the fruit is the winner. Dooku became leader of the Blue Team, and Lorian the leader of the Gold Team. There was a large duel and clash, and the remaining padawans were Nod and Dooku. The two dueled each other harshly until Yoda broke it up. Nod was incharged and afterwards expelled from the Order. Yoda and Oppo asked why did Dooku hurt Lorian, but Dooku said that it was Lorian's fault. A few years after the incident, Dooku began to train young Qui-Gon Jinn. Dooku picked Jinn when he strolled by Yoda's class. Dooku and Jinn were assigned to protect senator Blix Aaron, and Dooku met his friend senator Eero Iridian. In space, the pilot found a dead ship with a little girl crying in it. The pilot and Jinn begged to help, but Dooku was patient and said they should stall until further notice was given. After they decide to help her and start to move the ship in, it appears to be a trap and the ship starts firing at them. The bounty hunters board their ship and take the senator. During the firefight Qui-Gonn Jinn hears the girl screaming again and rushes into the bounty hunters to save her. After Jinn rushes in and finds it is just a recording, they see the pirate and Dooku recognizes it as Lorian Nod.

The two sections of the book set in Dooku's childhood are set in 89 BBY. There are two sections during the apprenticeship of Qui-Gon Jinn, one set in 76 BBY and one set significantly later, when Qui-Gon is ready to take the Jedi Trials. One of the Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi sections is set after the death of Xanatos in 44 BBY, with the other taking place directly before the mission to Naboo in 32 BBY. The last segment with Anakin Skywalker takes place within four weeks of the First Battle of Geonosis in 22 BBY.[1]

It is said in the beginning of the book that Dooku and Lorian Nod are thirteen years old, Dooku having just been chosen as a Padawan and Nod still being unchosen. However other canonical writings, specifically the Jedi Apprentice series (also by Jude Watson) state that once the age of thirteen is reached, an apprentice is sent out of the temple, being too old to continue training without a master. However the consistency of this rule may be more loose as are the rules and penalties against attachments and marriage. Canon supporting this lay in the Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader novel, where Olee Starstone is stated to be a Jedi "hopeful" who is excepted from the thirteen year rule due to her specialization in archival work. If left masterless, she was to become a Temple Acolyte but not a Jedi knight. The meaning of the Temple Acolyte designation seems to be a technical Jedi, as Jedi Agricultural Specialist are.
