Format: Hardcover
Being somewhat of a veteran of star wars novels I was expecting a rather formulaic tale encased within the hardcover of this book. Having read Stover's previous novel 'Traitor' which I enjoyed greatly I was expecting a good story but not something unusual. After The New Jedi Order series I assumed I was well aquainted with how mature and adult the material of the Star Wars novels can become but I was pleasently surprised by what Stover has managed to accomplish in his text. By taking a Vietnam horror reference he spins his tale around the tracking of a rogue Jedi Knight by Master Mace Windu through a trecherous and particularily inhospital environment. At first I enjoyed the new direction the author has taken his plot in but I must admit that I found the ride a tad depressing with nothing but the personality of the character Nick Rostu to alleviate at times.
Some might say that by essentially stealing elements from 'Apocalypse Now' Stover has taken the Star Wars universe away from it's roots. But I would like to draw attention to the fact that Star Wars itself is essentially a rip-off several films and cultural myths combined to make one glorious homage. So I congratulate what Stover has done in attempting to take his story in a new direction for the range. Star Wars has a tendency at times to downplay the horrors of war just beacuse it is fiction. I believe that just because it is set in a fantastical universe there is no excuse not explore the darker side of the star WARS from time to time and to remind us that we are reading a story about death and destruction.
All the same, the book does slump a little in places but I think that this is more than made up for at the long climax.

I like this book. Like most Star Wars fans out there, I was eager to learn more about the Clone Wars. I have read about many battles between the Republic and the Separatists, droids versus clones, but this book goes into the real sufferers of the war. They involve Jedi Master Depa Billaba, who was previously not well known in the galaxy. What I find good about this book though, is we see a different Mace Windu. The tough-fighting, ultimately cool Jedi Master is shown in a different light in this book, when his emotions for former Padawan Billaba are put to the test. The idea of documenting Windu's private journals was pure genius, and I am glad to see the name 'Nick' finally used in the Star Wars galaxy! All round a great read.

Format: Hardcover
THE STORY:
Mace Windu returns to his homeworld, Haruun Kal, in search of his former apprentice, Master Depa Billaba, who may be responsible for war crimes.
WHAT'S GOOD:
The whole book is good, having the most important factors of a Star Wars novel: lightsaber duels, an exotic world to explore and a nice big battle. Mace's own shifting understanding of the Force adds a little edge to the story as he begins to see that which had driven his friend insane. Also, Kar Vastor's animal power is a perfect counterpoint to Mace's calm control. I almost felt myself jump for joy when Mace finally decided to stop playing by other people's rules and do things his way.
WHAT'S BAD:
The fact that this story is a clear 'Heart Of Darkness'/'Apocalypse Now' rip-off is a shame as it makes the whole thing seem hollow somehow. Whilst it claims to be a Clone Wars novel, don't expect too much clone action as there is next to none, the story focusing instead on Haruun Kal's civil war. Ultimately, the way in which Mace is constantly wrong or defeated or tricked gives the impression the character had been betrayed.
A Star Wars must read, but not major in the scheme of the Clone Wars.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you’re a Star Wars fan that likes Mace Windu and likes a bit of real issues mixed in with your sci-fi then “Shatterpoint” is the book for you.

It is by far the most adult piece of Star Wars media I have ever consumed. The creators of “Republic Commando” touted it as a dark gritty game, and while I love it, what that really meant was that everything looked dirtier and the aliens got juice on you when you stabbed them.

“Shatterpoint” is essentially “Heart of Darkness” with Jedi, and brings a whole lot of apartheid analogues which make it one of the most explicit depictions of racism ever seen in Star Wars. This is not just “these people don’t get along” like the Naboo and Gungans either, there is blood spilled, it is incredibly violent in places, often from the most unexpected areas and the whole book is relentless in wearing down its protagonists and the reader.

It’s also the greatest insight into the mind of Mace Windu. While he’s arguably one of the most popular prequel characters, in the movies he is essentially just Mace Windu: Awesome Jedi. Even in the comics and The Clone Wars we don’t get a great deal of information about the kind of man he is. “Shatterpoint” is essentially a Mace Windu character study and gives some interesting looks into not only Mace, but also the nature of the force and the dark side, and what it means to be a peacekeeper in a time of war.

Aside from that there are some very creatively written action scenes that are pretty inventive in places, and written in a way that it’s always clear what’s happening. Some people write action scenes and it’s a mess of people jumping and kicking and you have little real notion of what it would actually look like.

Overall, I can’t really recommend this enough to Clone Wars era or Mace Windu fans, and even for Star Wars fans in general, I think it’s still worth a look, as there is really not much else quite like it.
