More About the Author

Karen Miller was born in Vancouver, Canada, but was raised in Sydney, Australia where she still lives today. She wanted to be a writer from early childhood, but that took some time to happen. While she was waiting she worked as a public servant, a receptionist, in the horse industry, in local government, in publishing, in telecommunications, as a college lecturer and ran her own science fiction/fantasy/mystery bookshop. She fell in love with Star Wars when she saw it on the big screen, the very first time it was released in 1977. That love affair has lasted her whole life. So far she's written six mainstream fantasy novels and two Stargate SG-1 tie-ins.

"No matter how bleak things got, or how tempted they were to despair, light would prevail over darkness"
The Clone Wars rages on and Obi-Wan and Anakin continue to lead the front-line assaults against the Separatist. But information is coming in of an operation on Lanteeb. Under the nose of Chancellor Palpatine, Bail Organa and Master Yoda send Obi-Wan and Anakin to investigate.

I Liked:
One thing that has continued to astound me about Karen Miller is her grasp on major characters. When Anakin and Obi-Wan are in her hands, they act and feel like the characters from the movie. Anakin is perfectly tortured, adept and caring while Obi-Wan is nicely struggling with his own set of issues (being a bad master, his relationship to Anakin) and being somewhat aloof.
What is even better is how Karen Miller writes the pair together. The movies never quite got the supposed "joking" but "tender" relationship between the pair. Here, it is obvious the two are brothers in arms, yet they have differences of opinions that quite frequently (due to Anakin's impetuous nature and Obi-Wan's more sedate nature) causes them to butt heads. I could believe that these two could joke, then argue, but then be pals all at the same time.
I am also impressed with Miller's grasp of Ahsoka and Bail. Ahsoka has always been rather annoying to me from the movie and the TV series. But Miller writes her as a caring, young, naïve apprentice and not the know-it-all Mary Sue from the show. Plus, I really liked how Ahsoka went on a mission with Taria Damsin. Bail is positively brilliant. He continues to leap from the page and become a real person, a real friend to Obi-Wan and a friend to the Jedi.

Its good to share your feelings isn't it.
Good to get anything unsaid out there for people to hear. It also helps to deal with them and put them behind you, turn from the dark side as it were.
Except, wait, Anakin never did deal with his feelings did he. Thats how he lost himself to the dark side after all. Anakin never faced the things he did and his experiences and used his jedi training to deal with his anger.
If only he'd expressed his feelings LIKE HE DOES HERE ON EVERY SINGLE PAGE.

And Obi-Wan also deals with an inner anger and on nearly every page.
A trained jedi you only raised his voice a few times in the prequels here is angry with every single person
he comes in contact with but its okay he keeps it inside.....sometimes.
This is completely different from the Obi-Wan I know from the series and books.
Except, wait, according to Clone Wars: Wild Space he knows all about Anakin and Padme,warns Padme off a relationship with Anakin AND THEN TOTALLY MISSES ANAKING AND PADME HAVING A RELATIONSHIP FOR THREE YEARS.

Pros:
- There's a battle at the start.
- A scientist who feels guilt over what she's doing.
- Some great writing in the preparation of the trip (to planet boring).
- Some interesting thoughts from Ashoka.

Cons:
- Obi-Wan and Anakin talk about there feelings so much they actually tell each other to stop talking about there feelings, which is what I was doing.
- Obi-Wan, in the middle of keeping back more rage then a darkside lunatic, says "Oh Anakin" on practically every other page. And than screams whatever his latest bizzare opinion is.

Format: Paperback
A clone wars book by Karen Miller.

The plot itself is very simple but well written. Lok Durd is building his bioweapon using the slave scientist Bant'ena. Living on the edge of dying, the oppressed people of Torbel eek out a miserable existence mining raw bioweapon material just to stave off the pangs of starvation and sickness. The Jedi are at war, spread thin across the galaxy. All while Palpatine shreds the Republic from the inside out. Anakin and Obi-Wan hit Lanteeb dirt side and don't get a minute's rest. Torn between turning themselves over to the Separatists and shielding the people of Torbel, they make their stand. One world will see incredible destruction and pain while others nervously await their fait. I found it easy to connect with the characters in this book. Karen does a superb job bringing the characters to life (Palpatine in particular). You will feel compelled to finish this book. Mrs. Miller takes on the big SW characters and does an excellent job. So far this is my favorite SW book by this author.

Grab a brandy (or a warm milk) and enjoy an evening or two in a galaxy far, far away...

"The Jedi are not creatures of myth and magic. They are flesh and blood. They bleed. They break."
When we last left our Jedi heroes, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker (this was Clone Wars Gambit: Stealth, the first part of a two part story), they were about to crash their vehicle into the Lanteeban countryside after a narrow escape with General Lok Durd's forces. Now, our heroes struggle to reach Trebol, a small damotite mining village. There, they try to blend in and manage their escape. Meanwhile, Tyranus and Sidious grow more suspicious of the events, and Bail asks an old friend, Tryn Netzl, to find a cure for this bioweapon.

I Liked:
As always, Karen Miller has an absolutely impressive grasp of the main characters. Time and again, I was astounded at how she was able to write Anakin and Obi-Wan so close to their onscreen performances. I also love how she kept bringing up the past with them. For Anakin, it was his life as a slave, his adoration of children, his conflict between being a Jedi and wanting to make everyone's life better, and his hidden darkness. For Obi-Wan, it was simple things like Qui-Gon, Melida/Daan (always good to see tie-ins with Jude Watson's fantastic works), his stiffness, and even hints of his "acting" ability (hence why he's called a "Crazy old wizard" while on Tatooine).
One of the absolute best conversations between the two of them starts on page 274 with this amazing quote from Obi-Wan: "I am a Jedi. I have the power to help them and so I must help them. I cannot--I will not--stand by and watch them suffer. I won't prove our critics right!
