Synopsis:
How do you defeat an enemy whose riches buy unlimited power? How do you defeat an enemy who is a master of disguise? How do you defeat an enemy you cannot find? Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi are facing a very real threat from a very elusive adversary, who is as cunning as he is evil. He will stop at nothing to draw others to the dark side and undermine the Republic. If the Jedi do not stop him, it will mean danger for the whole galaxy.


Chronology:
This story occurs approximately 27 years before the Battle of Yavin.

Review by Bones, UK, 2011:

"The Master of Disguise is a gripping read, combining subterfuge, ironic moral lessons and an exciting new enemy. Anakin and Obi-Wan face Granta Omega, the faceless enemy from The Trail of the Jedi, who seems to be determined to harass the Jedi.
"The book enters straight into the action, located on a desolate planet in the middle of a civil war. At first, it seems like a benign prologue to a more pertinent story to come, but it is later cleverly revealed to be a lot more than it first appeared to be. The way the main antagonist hides within the story is wonderfully done and his agenda is refreshing, yet still familiar - he is a Sith cultist who merely wishes to gain the approval of the Sith since he does not possess the ability to become one.
"As with The Dangerous Games, Watson splits up Anakin and Obi-Wan, but this time it works, allowing particular attention to be paid to the whispers of the Dark Side that already exist within the future Sith Lord. Anakin's journey through the story is very poignant, as he tries to battle his own ego and ultimately fails spectacularly. The really tragic part is that he cannot see his failure, instead preferring to project the failings onto others. Even though the outcome is inevitable, you can't help but desperately will him to recognise his faults, but he is so consumed by his need to impress that he is oblivious to his everything but his personal mission to gain approval.
"A great addition to the Jedi Quest series, The Master of Disguise is clever, thrilling and emotional."

Rating: 4 / 5
