About this Book

Print Excerpt

Obi-Wan felt Anakin's small arms around his waist.

"If that's how it's done--," the boy said, and then something--was it is his Padawan's newfound skill at levitation?--lifted them through the next shield as if they lay in the palm of a giant hand.

Obi-Wan Kenobi had never felt so close to such a powerful connection with the Force, not in Qui-Gon, nor Mace Windu. Not even in Yoda.

"I think we're going to make it!" Anakin said.
