The Approaching Storm
Alan Dean Foster
taking place before Attack of the Clones, it is the story of 2 Jedi and 2 Padawans forging an alliance on a world so that it doesn’t secede from the Republic and draw many others with it. Obi-wan, Anakain, and Luminara Unduli and Barris Offee. This story was plodding, to put it nicely. It bordered on the “I’m not gonna finish this” line. Would never buy it, for sure.
Update: I did buy it, for continuity’s sake, sigh.
