Star Wars The Clone Wars by Karen Traviss

Across the galaxy, the Clone Wars are raging. The Separatists, led by Count Dooku, the onetime Jedi and now secret Sith Lord, continue to press forward, and more and more worlds are either falling, or seceding and joining the cause. Under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, the Republic heroically battles on, championed by its huge army of cloned soldiers and their Jedi generals.

Anakin Skywalker, believed by some to be the prophesied “Chosen One” destined to bring balance to the Force, is now a Jedi Knight under the tutelage of his Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Death is a constant possibility–and his chances of survival aren’t improved by the unexpected arrival of an apprentice: Ahsoka, a brash, inexperienced fourteen-year-old Padawan apprenticed to Anakin. But there’s no time for Anakin to question his latest orders: He and Obi-Wan have been assigned a new mission, and failure is not an option.

Jabba the Hutt’s precious infant son has been kidnapped, and when the frantic parent applies to the Jedi for help, it falls to Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, and their clone troops to track down the evidence and retrieve the missing Huttlet. And more is at stake: For a grateful Jabba just might allow the Republic access to the Hutt-controlled space lanes that the Grand Army desperately needs in order to beat the Separatists into submission.

But the Republic is not the only power that craves access to those space lanes. Count Dooku, determined to win the prize for the Separatists, has set a trap for the Jedi. When they find the Huttlet, they will also find Dooku’s master assassin, Asajj Ventress, and countless legions of battle droids waiting to spring a trap.

The blazing new animated feature film Star Wars: The Clone Wars takes place in the years preceding Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and sets the stage for the groundbreaking TV series. Both contain all original material–direct from the brilliant imagination of legendary Star Wars creator George Lucas. And these exciting new adventures and characters are being brought to life in book form by none other than #1 New York Times bestselling Star Wars author Karen Traviss.

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!

This book is so much better than the movie! In the book, the plot is more developed, and the characters come to life in the reader's imagination; just as a book should do. The book is set in the period between episodes II & III, while the Republic is kicking the CIS's (or as Rex so kindly refest to them "klankers") butts. The book's storyline is based around the kidnapping of a huttlet;a baby Hutt,and how Anikin and his new Padawan learner, Ahsoka Tano, persur it's kidnappers and return him to Jabba. The book is more in depth than the movie and is definately a spoiler, but a must-read before seeing the feature. Take it from me, the book will blow you mind!

The Clone War between the Separatists and the Republic takes a strange twist when agents of the former kidnap Rotta the infant son of Jabba the Hutt from his Tattoine palace. Jabba offers a deal to the Republic he will allow their vessels safe access of his space sector in exchange for the rescue of his child. The Republic, knowing the strategic value of Hutt¿s zone especially at a time their adversaries are winning, assigns Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and his Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi to conduct the rescue mission. Besides a top military unit, accompanying them is newly assigned apprentice fourteen year old Ahsoka for Skywalker to train. Separatist leader Count Dooku learns of the Republic¿s efforts to obtain the Hutt offspring he knows the incredible morale boost to his side and the devastation mentally to the already shaky enemy¿s confidence with the killing of Skywalker ¿The Chosen One¿. He assigns assassin Asajj Ventress to kill the knight and his master and sends battle droids to insure none escape. --- Tied to the Clone Wars TV saga, this is a fast-paced exciting Star Wars military science fiction thriller. The action-packed story line never slows from start to finish, but the plot premise is a bit thin beyond the vivid battle scenes. In some ways the novel feels as if Karen Traviss prime directive was to introduce key players from the TV series. Still it is well written and fun to read as the readers realize how desperate the Republic needs to partner with Hutt, who feels out of character as a drooling caring father. --- Harriet Klausner

Karen Traviss does such a good job fleshing out and improving on the events of the film Star Wars: The Clone Wars, that this book seems like a totally different story, and a much better one at that. Getting into Anakin's head for the events of the film and seeing his hatred of Hutts was a great aspect of the book. Ahsoka is a great character in the novel, and this novel is what really made me like her. I don't know if I would have ended up liking her as much if I hadn't read this along with watching that original film. The clones in this book are more in line with Travis's Republic Commandos and I love it that way. Anakin's worry about Rex and hating having to leave him behind is a part of the book that doesn't appear at all in the film, but is a great improvement. All in all this is one of the best Star Wars books of the prequel era.
