Fans of the Republic Commando series by Karen Traviss will love this book. It provides an excellent ending to the series and sets up the forthcoming Imperial Commando novel series very well. The best part of the novel is the final section once Order 66 has been put in place; the story pumps up the tension and has a twist at the end which I certainly did not see coming. Not wanting to add a spolier here, but it wasn't the happy ending I thought was being set up.

Words cannot describe enough about this book. The final book in a coolection of 4. This book has everything a Starwars fan would want. Equal to or better than the other three you decide, but truly awesome, never the less.

5 Stars do not miss this book. Add it to your Star Wars collection, because Karren Travis has made this book and the other three about the best Storey in the entire Star wars Universe.

Dont Miss Out!!!!!

Its better than the last one but I really shouldn't have bought all the books, I don't like the series because of the clones trying to be mandalorians and deserting etc, but at least the series is nearly over.

Really shows how the clone wars really went down and how Palpatine manipulated both sides to become the emperor. Was great to see how much Delta and Omega squad had changed over the series.

Wow. Just . . . wow. This is a hard one to review without giving away too much, especially if you've not read the three previous novels in the series. But I'll take a crack at it.

Karen Traviss hooked me with her first "Republic Commando" book, "Hard Target," showing excellent storytelling, good character development, and intensive research into the fictional universe about which she was writing. Her second book in the series, "Republic Commando: Triple Zero" beautifully developed the characters even further. By the third book, "Republic Commando: True Colors," I was cheering for just about everyone, including the formerly unlikeable Walon Vau. This is now the fourth "Republic Commando" book, and I was poleaxed that I found it EVEN BETTER than the previous novels in the series.

The story starts over fifty years prior to the Battle of Geonosis, where the Mandalorian warrior Munin Skirata adopts a small war-orphan, upon whom he bestows the new name "Kal." The rest of the story skips ahead to the late days of the Clone Wars, up to the issuing of the galaxy-changing and titular Order 66 and slightly beyond, taking in all the consequences of everyone's decisions, taking some shocking twists and turns. And I'm sorry, but I can't possibly go into much more plot detail without spoiling some major surprises both in this book and those in previous instalments.

Suffice it to say that if you've read and liked the previous novels in the series and grown attached to the characters, you will really, REALLY enjoy this book. I hate to use a trite expression, but "Order 66" really IS an emotional roller-coaster. By page eleven, my eyes were welling up a bit.

This book stunned me.

Hard Contact was a great insight. Triple Zero created brilliant relations. True Colors gave us a strong perspective of the clones' view on the war (more so than previously), as well as tyeing up some loose ends.

Order 66 is just fantastic. The best book in the series so far. On it's own, the book is great, read after the previous three books, it becomes something different, something amazing. There are moments in this book I gritted my teeth, moments I laughed out loud, and moments I came very close to shedding a tear or two.

We've all seen and heard Order 66 from the Jedi perspective and more or less agreed with the Jedi's actions and felt sad (when Yoda clutches his heart at his dying loved ones). This book, however, throws us completely up-ended. Personally, I no longer feel so sad for the Jedi, I feel pity. It was mentioned in previous books at the Jedi's acceptance of a slave army, and the clones didn't sign up for their job. This book just shows how everyone was set up, used and disposed of. Yes, the Jedi had it bad - but the clones went through ten years of brutal training, followed up three more years of struggles and pain of their life, their brothers lives, and their painful realization of a life they will be deprived of - the one we take for granted. I also find myself feeling less sad for the fallen Jedi with the likes of Skirata and Vau - their views may be bold and harsh, but there's a lot of truth to them; this we can see by the simple fact of Jusik and Etain's agreement with them.
The books also fills in a lot of gaps, such as how Grevious is found, for example.
I was not expecting the ending of this book at all, but what makes it even more powerful, is the fact that the series continues (onto Imperial Commando: 501st)
I can't recommend this series enough, if for nothing but to reach this book.
