Review 5 October 2008:

In the closing days of the war, our favorite Republic Commandos squads, Delta and Omega Squadrons, have reached the time of the Clone Wars where a choice has to be made.  Do you execute Order 66?  The war seems to have the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) stretched to the limits.  But, these men were trained by one of the best sergenant, Kal Skirata, and he has no intentions of the letting them die in under Palpatine’s time.  So, Sgt Skirata has made plans to get his men out of the GAR and provide his men with a good future of life, not war.  But first, he must continue to prepare and find the resources to cure the aging process of these fine men.  In order to make the final break from the GAR, the men of Delta and Omega, must execute missions to prepare for the evacuation to their new homeworld.  Who will survive and make it out alive?  What is to become of the Jedi?

The Clone Wars

I recently obtained the latest Del Rey Balantine book in the Star Wars universe, The Clone Wars by Karen Traviss. This novel is based upon the upcoming Lucasfilm Animation movie, Star Wars The Clone Wars.

Update 8 August 2008:

Another fine addition by Karen Traviss to the Star Wars universe.  The upcoming movie should be very interesting to watch as well as the TV series that will follow.  The movie opens next week.

In this novel, we continue to follow Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi in their new adventures leading up to Episode III — Revenge of the Sith.    The mission appears to be a simple rescue mission.  However, it involves Jabba the Hutt and his kidnapped infant son.  Obviously there is foul play in this mission, as the Separatist would want what the Republic would get if the Huttlet is rescued, Hutt space lanes access.  And to challenge Anakin in this mission, he has taken on a Padawan learner.

The battles are intense as the galaxy’s future is at stake.  Who will succeed?  Either watch the upcoming movie or get this novel to read.
