Synopsis:
For generations, the firstborn children of the rulers of the planets Rutan and Senali have been exchanged at the age of seven. This was meant to promote peace and understanding between the societies. Now it has led them to the brink of war.
Leed, the heir to the Rutan throne, does not want to return to his home planet. His father will stop at nothing to get him back. Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi must prevent this rift from turning to bloodshed.
It is their hardest challenge yet.


Chronology:
This story occurs approximately 11 years before the events of The Phantom Menace (43 years before the Battle of Yavin).

Reviews:
Review by Bones, UK, 2011:

"The Shattered Peace continues a theme begun in The Fight for Truth in which Obi-Wan re-examines himself and his past and observes the progress he has made as a Padawan and as a person. The reflective focus of the story in this case sees Obi-Wan re-evaluating the decision he made to leave the Jedi Order during the Melida/Daan incident. As such, much of the plot is very reminiscent of the conflict in The Defenders of the Dead and Watson references the civil war often during Obi-Wan’s pensive examinations of the past.
"The settings for the story (the planet Rutan and its moon Senali) are pleasant enough, and the native species provide some interest in terms of their culture and so on (although the anti-fur trade hints a quite conspicuous) but the whole plot is just a little too repetitious and unoriginal for the book to be considered anything other than respectable."

Rating: 3 / 5
