Editorial Reviews

Review

"FULL OF LIGHTSABER BATTLES, THE JEDI PHILOSOPHY, AND LOTS OF NEW LIFE-FORMS."
"--Chicago Sun-Times
"Reaves writes with a creative flair, allowing readers to experience an almost cinematic sensation as they move through the story. The language is colorful, the action scenes are dynamic, and the dialogue is realistic.... Shadow Hunter is a very good "Star Wars novel that reads as easily as a comic book.... Reaves does an excellent job."
"--Winston-Salem Journal

From the Inside Flap

"While the Clone Wars wreak havoc throughout the galaxy, the situation on the far world of Drongar is desperate, as Republic forces engage in a fierce fight with the Separatists. . . .
The threatened enemy offensive begins as the Separatists employ legions of droids into their attack. Even with reinforcements, the flesh and blood of the Republic forces are just no match for battle droids' durasteel. Nowhere is this point more painfully clear than in the steaming Jasserak jungle, where the doctors and nurses of a small med unit face an impossible situation. As the dead and wounded start to pile up, surgeons Jos Vandar and Kornell "Uli" Divini know that time is running out.
Even the Jedi abilities of Padawan Barriss Offee have been stretched to the limit. Ahead lies a test for Barriss that could very well lead to her death-and that of countless others. For the conflict is growing-and for this obscure mobile med unit, there's only one resolution. Shocking, bold, unprecedented, it's the only option Jos and his colleagues really have. The unthinkable has become the inevitable. Whether it kills them or not remains to be seen.

Medstar II was slightly better than Medstar I. The obvious references to MASH were toned down a bit, but there were still times I tried to match the characters in Jedi Healer to their counterparts in the MASH tv series.

The plot thickens significantly in this book, as the loose ends from the first half of the duology begin to get tied up. The characters are very easy to get attached to, and their personalities come through in shining colors. The authors do a good job of pulling you into the story. Without giving too much away, the resolution of the issue with the spy in the camp was very well written and the subterfuge practiced by the different bad guys was pleasant to read. Although it was simple to figure out who the spy was before it was definitively revealed, it was interesting to see the characters go through the deductive process. My only complain was that it seemed that Bariss should have been able to figure it out much sooner, and didn't take some simple logical steps earlier in the story. But it was interesting none the less.

My only other complaint was that there seemed to be an inordinate number of aliens that I was unfamiliar with. I kept having to go online to look them up, because they weren't adequately described in the book.

In this duology I've grown really attached to the characters. It's almost sad to continue to read about all the Jedi, knowing what is going to happen to them in the upcoming movie....

This was a very good book that lets you look at the battle side of the war through the doctors and nurses. Also it was sort of a spy thriller too which added more to the story. It also tells about a Jedi trial and not to be afraid of embracing the force.It has excitement and romance in the story too. The writer keeps you guessing who the spy is and the book is a very enjoyable read.

I first got this book on audible it was an abridgment which I did not even finish listening yo the book because it did not make any sense.

I came across a comment on Audible that the abridgment did not do the book justice. Because I did not even finish listening to the book because it did not make any sense to me. I went to Kindle and brought the book and read it. The person that made the comment that the abridgment was not good was right. Reading the book made it made more sense and I found out that it was a very good book.

This is what I may call a story arc which I read out of order and found that the stories was connected: 1. Darth Maul Shadow Hunter
2. Medstar book I Battle Surgeons 3. Medstar boojk II: Jedi Healer 4. Coruscants Nights: Jedi Twilight 5. Coruscants Nights: Streets of Shadows 6. Coruscants Nights Patterns of the Force and the last one 7. The Last Jedi. All these books are connected and are very good and should be read in order. I read the books again and I found a very interesting story.

"Jedi Healer" is the second and concluding volume in the "Medstar" duology. It continues the story of the surgeons we met in "Battle Surgeons". They remain on the planet Drongar working in the Star Wars version of a M.A.S.H. unit. One particular storyline continues from the first book, and that is the fact that there is a spy working on Drongar against the Republic. This spy is a double-agent in that he (or she) is working both for the Separatists (the group led by Count Dooku) and also for the Black Sun criminal organization. Since the goal is the same for both groups, at the moment, there is no conflict. There is, however, double the risk for the spy. It is never said who the spy is, or what gender, so there has been some guessing games going on since "Battle Surgeons". With the only true export from Drongar being the fragile miracle drug, "Bota", the spy is finding ways to divert bota from the Republic.

Along with the spy portion of the story is the main story of the surgeons. They live their lives, do their jobs, try to cope with life on the incredibly hot and muggy Drongar, and question why they are doing what they are doing. To go along with the cast of characters from the first book (Jos Vandar, Tolk, Jedi Apprentice Barriss Offee, I-Five) we are introduced to the young surgeon Uli Divini, who is taking the place of the killed surgeon Zan Yant. Uli is very confident, very skilled, and very untested. Jos questions whether Uli will be able to handle the work, though it is quickly evident that he can. There are two conflicts in this book. The first is in the new relationship of Jos and Tolk. It is a relationship which is forbidden by their culture. The second is figuring out who the spy is before the spy can cause any more damage.

This was a great ending to the Medstar duology. While dealing with complex themes such as addiction and loss, the story manages to move along at a good pace and keeps the suspence building until the end. To the surgeons and staff of Rimsoo-7 the Clone War is a never ending stream of wounded coming into their operating room. To the spy working for the Sepratists it is a chance to get rich quick while betraying the people he is working with, and for a lone Jedi Healer it is a chance to face off against her possible addiction and to face down her temptations to give into the Dark Side of the Force. A nice ending to a thoughtful story.
