|Plot Summary of Star Wars: Jedi Trial|
A Clone Wars Novel
Del Rey, Nov 2004, 25.95, 352 pp.
Separatist Admiral Pors Tonith leads an army of combat droids on an assault of the planet Praesitlyn. Though ably defended by commander Capt. Zozridor Slayke, the surprise attack works so that the Separatists control a key communications center.
The Republic leadership worries who to send as there are not any acceptable Jedi Knights available to lead the counterinsurgency. To regain supremacy of the beleaguered planet, the Republic reluctantly sends Jedi Knight student Anakin Skywalker and the dishonored Jedi Knight Nejaa Halcyon to lead the assault to retake the planet. However, the defeated planetary defenders still alive do not readily ally themselves with the so-called Republic rescuers because Slayke hates Halcyon and wants him dead. In that personal mess, Anakin is being tested as a leader and whether he is ready to soar as a full Jedi Knight.
This is a tale that emphasizes the military battles with a close look at the impact on the troops from all sides as well as a coming of age Skywalker tale.
