I've been finally re-reading (the first 3) and delving into the last 3 now.
(Jude Watson is possibly moving on to write about Obi-Wan and Anakin in solely CLONE WARS books now).
But the Jedi Quest books are better than I recalled.
"The Dangerous Games" was great to see Anakin podracing again! Plus you learn the fate of Ratts Tyrell's family and get to see Sebulba train his son Hekula to be another dirty podracer just like his old man!
I loved the scene when Obi-Wan stopped Anakin just before he whipped out his lightsaber and hacked Sebulba to pieces.
I also like how Jude Watson brought in the corruption in the Senate nad how the Commerce Guild was using illegal podracing bets to pull Bail Organa and other Loyalists into a scandal so that the Guild could take over a lot of the Banking Clan's position.
In the end the criminals go free because the corruption is too deep to help the Jedi get the bad guys a decent trial, and Anakin is witness to them getting away with murder - quite literally.
It so sets the stage where he will grow up thinking that it is time for him to give out justice by the lightsaber and a totalitarian government ruled by the Sith, while meanwhile, much of the rest of the galaxy will think the Republic is so corrupt, they'll join the Separatists for their own purposes.
Once again, Jude Watson is brilliant with her grasp of Star Wars!
