Overview

As Civil War between the Republic and the Separatists rages across the galaxy, nowhere is the fighting more fierce than on the swamp world of Drongar, where a beleaguered mobile hospital unit wages a never-ending war of its own . . .

A surgeon who covers his despair with wise-cracks; another who faces death and misery head-on, venting his emotions through beautiful music . . . A nurse with her heart in her work and her eye on a doctor . . . A Jedi Padawan on a healing mission without her Master . . .  These are the core members of a tiny med unit serving the jungle world of Drongar, where battle is waged over the control of a priceless native plant, and an endless line of medlifters brings in the wounded and dying — mostly clone troopers, but also soldiers of all species.

While the healers work desperately to save lives, others plot secretly to profit from the war — either by dealing on the black market or by manipulating the events of the war itself. In the end, though, all will face individual tests, and only those of compassionate hearts and staunch spirits can hope to survive to fight another day.

    A Deeper Look Into The Star Wars Universe

    This is a great story about some lesserknown characters. A few of them continue on in other books. If you are a Star Wars fan, this is a great story to get you deeper into the universe.

    Two veteran writers come through

    Reaves and Perry really deliver in this surprising Star Wars series. This book continues the kind of war depiction we saw in Stover's Shatterpoint novel: gritty, uncomfortable, and honest. The films have never gone this dark, and that may be some of the problem with this new trilogy. I'm not saying the films need to go the Private Ryan route, but the series is called Star WARS. Lucas seems more interested in computer-generated bang and boom rather than character exploration. This book is a welcome change. There are several interesting and memorable characters in this book, and most of them are not Jedi.

    STAR WARS FOR A DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW

    This book was written from the medical staffs point of view. This is different from the typical books. I thought this still was a good book that went along well with the other books.

    I didn't have high hopes for this book. I was expected to slug through it, but it was a surprisingly quick read. I would have enjoyed a more central story than secondary and new characters on a medical base, but for what it was it was good. I figured out the identity of the mystery sabateor pretty early on, but it was interesting watching how it all proceeded.

    Overall a pretty good Clone Wars story.

    All right story, in an area we don't normally see covered - essentially the Star Wars version of MASH. Some of it came across fairly heavy handed, to me. And, of course, a solid 1/3 of the book is advertisement for other books (borrowed EPUB version from the library - 382 pages, book ends on page 260.) List of characters, timeline, list of where the books fall, fine. A small preview, ok. But this is probably the most annoying part of most of the Star Wars books, and one of the major reasons I'll borrow instead of buy them - I'm not wasting my money on 2/3 of a book and a pile of ads.

    Waste of time

    Not a very good story. I was hoping for some backstory from the Death Star novel but was disappointed. Don't waste your time on this one.
