New blurb for Kenboi

Quote:
In this original novel set between the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV A New Hope, Obi-Wan Kenobi comes to the aid of the residents of Tatooine during his exile. But he struggles with his new mission when he realizes that protecting Luke Skywalker-the last hope of the galaxy-means setting aside his compassion and his Jedi warrior training, for the future of the galaxy lies not with Obi-Wan Kenobi, but with a mystical desert recluse known only by the name of Crazy Old Ben.

Cover has been revealed.



Now I did like the Kenobi promo art Chris Scalf did, but since they're going with a photoshot of Leia for Razor's Edge, it makes sense to do the same with Kenobi. From a selling standpoint, it'll probably get more attention from casual readers.

Oh, and here's the synopsis...

I liked the old cover better, but the new one is good too. This is a book I'm going to be reading.

Well the old image wasn't a cover, it was a promotional art piece. But yeah, I did like the image Chris Scalf did. It was nice. Still, this one certainly looks like Obi-Wan Very Happy

Seeing as this was placed in the Dark Times, and involving a character who's trying to keep a low profile, I was interested in what kind of story they'd be telling. This sounds quite fascinating as a low-key event and a discussion on the difficulties of of actually being low-key when you're a famous Jedi general (Hood up or hood down?).

I heard someone talk about this on a Podcast here.

I'm intrigued by the thought of Kenobi being the "light side" version to the Darth Plagueis book.

So, I bit the bullet and pre-ordered from Amazon yesterday. Cool

I've developed a sudden sense of obligation to read this novel.

And a proper counterpart to Darth Plagueis would be Luceno doing a Qui-Gon novel fleshing out the apparently excised Qui-Gon half of the Darth Plagueis novel.

John Jackson Miller also did a short story that ties-in to Kenobi that's called "Incognito". It's in Star Wars Insider 143. If you're a subscriber, you'be probably already gotten it, but if you plan on picking it up (or just reading it) in the store, it'll be out July 23rd.

Obi-Wan can find Sorzus Syn on Tatooine and kill her, accounting for the final Jen'jidai.
