    A'Sharard, maybe? Although he seems to be more comic territory, and Windham already covered that in his Obi-Wan book. So he'd most likely just be name-dropped if at all.

    Asajj could work -- she'd actually be great seeing is TCW was canned before they ever completed her story -- but I doubt JJM had any idea where her story was going while the book was being written. So again, probably mentioned but I'd doubt we see her.

    Those are the only reasonable two I can think of off the top of my head, aside from all the MIA Jedi wandering about.
    Is the possibility of Jerec playing Indiana Jones Corellia Antilles out in the Tatooine deserts reasonable?
    An Inquisitor like Antinnis Tremayne or Adalric Brandl obsessed with bringing Obi-Wan to justice?
    Zombified Siri Tachi out for revenge?

    That's a good question. Logically they should have a major antagonist, and if not a "dark-sider" i wonder who it will be.

    Obi-Wan cuts Maw in half for the first time; he lives and gets a set of prosthetic legs.

    It's his speciality.

    I wonder if it will bet first person and treated like an in-universe diary of sorts.

    That would be interesting. Kind of like those dopey Episode 1 journals?

    I was thinking hopefully more like I, Jedi and less like a children's novel.

    The latest novel timeline is up on Suvudu. It places Kenobi right before Dark Lord. 'Course, this doesn't necessarily mean it takes place prior to Dark Lord, it could just begin there. Also, it's listed simply as Kenobi, so that seems to be the final title.

    Jen Heddle mentioned on Twitter that the final cover should be showing up soon, and that it's a different image from the teaser pic, but "not radically different".

    If it turns out to just be a giant close up from the teaser pic of just Obi-Wan's head...

    Naw, the picture will just show his beard. Obi's gotta rock the beard.

    Who wants to place bets Darth Maul's making it to the back cover? Even if he's just mentioned once in the entire novel?

    ...or maybe it's a novelisation of Old Wounds?! :eek:

    Only fun if it has a Jabba subplot. :p

    Everything should have a Jabba subplot. Jedi Prince managed it, and Jabba was dead by that point.

    Palpatine sold Maul into slavery after the Clone Wars were over and he was no longer useful for anything?

    In addition to Old Wounds, we could then also have the obligatory Slave Girl Darth Maul dance scene in which he shakes his metal booty.

    It'd make for an interesting story definitely. =D= I've already pre-ordered this and since it was announced i've been wondering what exactly was going to happen in this novel.

    So how about a blurb courtesy of the Star Wars Books FB page?

    Sounds like Hett could well be in it, then.
