“The Jedi are keepers of the peace. We are not soldiers.” —MACE WINDU Star WarsEpisode II:Attack of the Clones Mace Windu is a living legend: Jedi Master, senior member of the Jedi Council, skilled diplomat, devastating fighter. Some say he is the deadliest man alive. But he is a man of peace—and for the first time in a thousand years, the galaxy is at war. Now, following the momentous events climaxing in the Battle of Geonosis, Master Mace Windu must undertake a perilous homecoming to his native world—to defuse a potentially catastrophic crisis for the Republic . . . and to confront a terrifying mystery with dire personal consequences. The jungle planet of Haruun Kal, the homeworld Mace barely remembers, has become a battleground in the increasing hostilities between the Republic and the renegade Separatist movement. The Jedi Council has sent Depa Billaba—Mace’s former Padawan and fellow Council member—to Haruun Kal to train the local tribesmen as a guerilla resistance force, to fight against the Separatists who control the planet and its strategic star system with their droid armies. But now the Separatists have pulled back, and Depa has not returned. The only clue to her disappearance is a cryptic recording left at the scene of a brutal massacre: a recording that hints of madness and murder, and the darkness in the jungle . . . a recording in Depa’s own voice. Mace Windu trained her. Only he can find her. Only he can learn what has changed her. Only he can stop her. Jedi were never intended to be soldiers. But now they have no choice. Mace must journey alone into the most treacherous jungle in the galaxy—and into his own heritage. He will leave behind the Republic he serves, the civilization he believes in, everything but his passion for peace and his devotion to his former Padawan. And he will learn the terrible price that must be paid, when keepers of the peace are forced to make war. . . . From the Hardcover edition.… (mais)

The first half, directly tapping into Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, is very strong. The second half really ups the narrative complexity and frankly becomes too much Star Wars. 75% of the way in I felt like the novel really should be wrapping things up but it had too much story to tell that frankly was not that interesting. I am surprised this is considered one of the better Star Wars novels! That could be true, but it does not say much. ( )

A story revolving around Mace Windu. Not as much philosophy in this one as in some of Stover's others. Mediocre story overall tho. The whole Clone Wars saga has pretty much sucked and this was one of the better written ones, sigh. ( )

In same ways this book felt like Star Wars meets Vietnam. ( )

Star Wars Shatterpoint displays the more gritty side of the Clone Wars. It's full of deadly new creatures and locations with some pretty great battles. The story revolves around Jedi Master Mace Windu, who's former Padawan Depa Billaba has vanished into the jungles on Haruun Kal; the homeworld Mace barley remembers. Only Billaba's former master knows how to find her and so Mace plunges into a grulling trek through one of the most treacherous jungles in the galaxy in search of his once great pupil. But THIS jungle holds perhaps far more than even a Jedi Master can reckon with.

Matthew Stover does a brilliant job of bringing the Clone Wars raging to life with this novel, which also includes his short story "Equipment" (a Clone Wars short story). ( )

An amazing book. This book deals with the hard realities of war and what it can do to the people and the planets involved.

Maybe one of the best Star Wars books I've read in my short time catching up with the EU. They usually run from cheesy to melodramatic, to fun and interesting to dull and plodding. I love the Star Wars universe and look forward to continuing to find gems like this in the haystack. ( )
