Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn is dispatched to prevent the outbreak of a civil war on the homeworld of his Padawan Xanatos: whose father is king. It is a mission that will lead Qui-Gon into close contact with the dark side and start him on a quest that will have a major impact on the future of the Jedi Order!
Dispatched to the planet Telos IV, Qui-Gon, his Padawan Xanatos, and the lovely Jedi Master Tahl must uncover the secrets behind a recent political assassination and prevent an outbreak of civil war. For the headstrong Xanatos, this return to the world of his birth has dredged up hidden resentments, while Master Tahl has herself become a target for assassination!
Intrigue, action, danger, and the dark side are imminent!
On Telos IV, a priestess has been assassinated, and the planet is on the verge of civil war. Only Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan Xanatos can protect the planet’s leader—who just happens to be Xanatos’s father—and stop the insurgents. But Xanatos is succumbing to his own long-buried resentments and may soon be more of a hindrance than a help.
The situation on Telos IV is getting darker: sabotage, assassination attempts, secret meetings, undercover agents....
But right now, Master Qui-Gon Jinn's main concern is controlling his headstrong Padawan. The homecoming on Telos has proved incredibly difficult for the proud and bitter Xanatos. His difficulties in reconnecting with his father and sister are putting the team of Jedi in peril as they near the shocking facts behind the burgeoning civil war...
Civil war has broken out on Telos IV. As the governor rallies his military, Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn struggles desperately to uncover the reason for the planet's unrest, in hope of stopping the war...
But Qui-Gon's troubled Padawan isn't helping: his homecoming to Telos has been anything but happy, and the recent events--including the horrific death of a family member-have fueled his growing anger. This time, though, Qui-Gon is the target!

This story occurs approximately 53 years before the Battle of Yavin.
