[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with STAR WARS JEDI QUEST: Trail of the Jedi.]--These first two installments in the Jedi Quest series follow young Anakin Skywalker and his master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, as Anakin begins his apprenticeship. The books are repetitive and somewhat long on exposition, but the audio productions help overcome these defects. Jonathan Davis's readings are superb. His clear voice seems made for narration, and he does excellent imitations of the voices various actors have given the characters in the Star Wars films. Add to this John Watson's familiar score and the judicious use of humming light sabers, roaring engines, and other sound effects, and you have a winning selection for young fans. A.F.
