Maybe we’re wrong to attach ourselves to the Force at the expense of life as most beings know it, which includes lust, love and a lot of other emotions that are forbidden to us. Devotion to a higher cause is fine and good, but we shouldn’t ignore what’s going on in front of our own eyes. Jedi are not infallible, Dooku understood that. He looked things squarely in the eye, and decided to do something about it.

The Chosen Apprentice is the first novel in the Varicean Saga and continues the story from where the Jedi Padmé Trilogy left off. The novel is very much a departure from the Jedi Padmé Trilogy and sets up quite a number of plot details and characters for it's sequel Prelude of Fear. This story depicts the Transition Period, which was a time of much change from the Galactic Republic still recovering from the devastation of the Clone Wars which finished three years before.


Three years after the conclusion of the Clone Wars the Jedi Order and the Republic have moved on, yet Anakin Skywalker has not. While he still struggles to come to terms with Padmé’s death, the relative peace caused by the end of the war looks to dissolve in petty bickering over the continued role of the Jedi.
