The savage Clone Wars have forced the Republic to the edge of collapse. During the height of the battle, on Jedi Knight escapes the carnage to deliver a message to Yoda on Coruscant.

The meeting will take place on Djun, a planet steeped in evil. The challenge could not be more difficult. Can Yoda win back his once promising pupil from the dark side or will Count Dooku unleash his sinister forces against his former mentor? Either way, Yoda is sure of one thing: This battle will be one of the fiercest he’ll ever face.

    Great book

    This book probably ranks in my top 3 star wars books. It is really well written ( though some stuff is unecessary ) and it's about Yoda. I got it at my local library, but it is definately worth buying.

    Not The Best, Not The Worst

    While Star Wars Yoda Dark Rendezvous isn't the worst Star Wars novel I’ve read, it’s not the best either. As the title implies the story centers on Yoda and includes only brief appearances by other iconic Star Wars characters like Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. The author includes many worldly references that don’t feel very much like Star Wars: paper in mentioned although at the time of the clone wars paper was already an antique. There is a reference to a bee (not some type of bee, just a plain old bee). Also plastic is mentioned which isn’t too unusual but it seems kind of unimaginative.

    On the upside of things, there were some neat new characters. There was also a funny moment between Yoda and a droid that’s reminiscent of Yoda vs. R2 on Dagobah. Perhaps my favorite thing about this book is how quickly things get rolling: I found myself enjoying the book as early as chapter three. There are some things about this novel that remind me of the Jedi Quest series. I really like the way the Jedi train in there temple on Coruscant in the first few chapters of the book.

    Over all it’s a pretty good story and an easy read and, although I’ve enjoyed other Star Wars books more, I’d still suggest it to a friend.

    I feel like this is a pretty well regarded book by many fans, but I just never got that into it. The climax between Yoda and Dooku was the best part, seeing what was going on inside Yoda at that moment, but the story itself wasn't that interesting.




    Maybe it would have been more interesting if I had read it when it came out between Episodes II and III. As it is I already know what happens afterwards and it makes the events of the book seem pretty unimportant.

    Well written, but has plot issues

    The writing was excellent. I couldn't put it down. However, I find Yoda's portrayal to be unbelievable and, in the final confrontation, downright idiotic. Holding up one chharacter constantly as the ideal Jedi is also rather annoying. I'm grateful to Karen Traviss for being the first to look at Yoda from a new angle. This book, sadly, gives us the annoying Yoda we all know.

    Great Star Wars read

    I was hooked when i read Darth Maul SH. This book gave me an ifinity for the ST EU. Yes, there is alot on Dookus oast which is an awesome read. But it has alot of action involving my favoraite Sith Acolyte, Asajj Ventress. This is one of my favorites out of the 38 SW novels I have read

    A reviewer

    Star Wars: Yoda Dark Rendevous is an excellent novel in its insight toward the fall of Count Dooku and his relationship to Jedi Master Yoda. In addition, it may have come as a surprise to those who have seen AOTC 'Attack of the Clones' that Yoda has a sense of humor 'Lost a planet, Master Obi-Wan has...' Expect to see more of that humor in this book. Also, Yoda's profound connection to his padawans and fellow masters is reflected in his gallant actions concerning the meeting with Count Dooku and his wise decisions in regards to a young girl with which the Force is not very strong. The conclusion is shocking in its implications, of Anakin's tragic march on the Jedi Temple and Order 66.

    Wonderful Sometimes, Slows to a Crawl at Others

    First of all Yoda, who I imagine to be a very difficult character to describe in writting is wonderfully dipicted and the book gets five stars whenever he's involved. Even the parts with Dooku and Ventress were wonderful. However, a little less than half the book acctually has Yoda in it. The other half the book is about two Jedi padawans who are annoying and pointless characters and contribute nothing to the plot unless another character is there to make up for them. If the book just took out all the parts with them in it leaving it at only about 150 pages it would be a wonderful read. Yoda is hilarious. Comedy is one of the hardest things to do in a book and here it is done stupendously. Anakin and Obi-Wan even have a nice cameo. Also Dooku's personality is explained more fully and more wonderfully than any movie could. you get to see what makes him tick and how he really feels. Overall the good outweighs the bad and any fan of Yoda (that would be everyone) should pick this up.

    A slight let down

    I just expected more in the way of Yoda's involvment with Dooku and Ventress. The supporting characters were more of a distraction (dare I say an annoyance) than anything else.

    Pretty Good Book

    This was a pretty good book. The title is deceptive--Though it is called Yoda: Dark Rendezvous, Yoda is merely a co-star, sharing the spotlight with two Jedi Padawans. Though I thought the book was slow at some points, it was overall a really enjoyable read, and I recommend it for anyone interested in a good, humorous story packed with great Yoda events.

    Nice book

    I thought this was a very good book. If you enjoy the EU and Star Wars books that go off on other tangents besides Anakin, Vader, Obi-wan, luke, etc. you'll like this book. It's a good read for anyone interested in Jedi Academy training, young jedi tasks, etc. Before I read this book, I didn't want to read anything that didn't have to do with Anakin, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Mace, or any of the main characters from the movies, however I found myself in more anticipation for the parts with Whie, Ventress, Scout, Leem, Maruk, rather than the parts with Yoda and Dooku.
