Peace is maintained between the planet Rutan and its moon, Senali, by the ruling families exchanging a child at the age of seven. War has been held at bay for hundreds of years, but this peace has now proved to be fragile. The prince of Rutan refuses to accept the system. The prince may have been born to rule, but is not quite fit for it. He prefers power to peace. Avoiding war and achieving peace through mutual understanding and compromise are two different things. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan have been sent to preserve the peace, but the challenge proves far from easy.
For generations, the firstborn children of the rulers of the planet Rutan and the moon 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.
