Civil War has engulfed Melida/Daan for centuries. The planet is divided between the Elders and the Young. Although Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are sent to rescue a Jedi named Tahl, they soon find themselves on opposite sides as well.

This is the beginning of a three-book story arc on the planet of Melida/Daan.

Publisher's Summary

The Defenders of the Dead live in the past while they destroy the future. They face a revolt of the Young—a band of rebels led by two teenagers, Cerasi and Nield. Thirteen-year-old Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn are not supposed to take sides in any war. But once Obi-Wan meets Cerasi and Nield, he feels he must join their fight…even though Qui-Gon forbids it. The rebellion has become personal. And Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are on opposing sides.
