As the action begins, the Republic and Jedi have seemingly pushed the Separatists and Sith back into the outer reaches of the galaxy thanks to the clone army deployed in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. But as victory seems near, the ruthless General Grievous--think Darth Vader on steroids--emerges from the shadows. In the battle against Grievous, Anakin Skywalker--who is a little Vader-ish too these days--and Obi Wan Kenobi find themselves in a race to discover the identity of the Sith Lord Darth Sidious and unravel the web of duplicity surrounding the Separatist uprising.
While essential for obsessive fans, Labyrinth of Evil is a clunky novel and Luceno struggles with Lucas's ungainly and Byzantine plotting. Full of cumbersome, Star Wars technophillia, the novel merely serves its purpose by fleshing out the thin line between Episodes II and III. True believers will revel in the level of technical detail and tantalizing nuggets of trivia while the less zealous could satisfy their Star Wars cravings by checking out Timothy Zahn's masterful post-Episode VI works. --Jeremy Pugh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I just felt that the story kind of slowed down at the end, with a bit too much detail covering the last few chapters.
Labyrinth of Evil is an excellent work by James Luceno that definitely gets one very, VERY excited about Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
As for the plot, the story focuses on the Jedi, most notably Obi-wan, Anakin, and Mace Windu, as they track down the elusive Darth Sidious.

This novel was, no lie, pretty boring. Luceno is great at dialogue and weaving political twists together, as he did in cloak of deception. Read morePublished 1 month ago by DJ

Labyrinth of evil was a great tie in to the upcoming Episode III. It showed the Jedi making advanced leads on who the Sith are, it shows how Grievous attacked the capital and why... Read morePublished 5 months ago by shaneluke29
