Overview

As the Clone Wars rage, Jedi Master Yoda must once again face one of his greatest adversaries: Count Dooku. . . .

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. It appears that Dooku wants peace and demands a rendezvous. Chances are slim that the treacherous Count is sincere but, with a million lives at stake, Yoda has no choice.

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.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
