Book Description

8 July 2010 Star Wars (Book 59)
The second installment of a two-book Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker adventure, set against the backdrop of the Clone Wars! Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker are trapped on the Separatist controlled planet Lanteeb, on the run from General Lok Durd and his droid army. After being forced to abandon their jerry-rigged groundcar they continue on foot, hunted, as they try to find a safe place to hide and regroup before escaping the planet altogether. Eventually they seek shelter in a remote Lanteeban village, but the Separatists track them down. Now they're under siege...and the little time they've bought themselves is running out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre 20 May 2011
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Part of the problem with the whole Star Wars Universe is that we know that certain linear things have to happen and that certain characters are never going to be in any serious danger as otherwise it would a parallel Universe. What does occur within this book is a more routine type of mission for the Jedi with the majority of the book being devoted to character dialogue over a huge amount of plot. It does have some interesting aspects, the Durd Bioweapon for example and it also has some character growth though the interaction. But what it really lacks is a seriously deep plot to keep the reader going.

Yes it's good to get a more emotionally charged tale but by the end it felt that the author had just come up with something basic and decided to fluff up character development at the expense of action (although there is some.) Personally I read the series for a no hold barred action blaster/sabre fest but hey, you can't have that all the time. All in, a this book is well written, the authors understanding of pace gets it through a few sticky patches but compared to a number of other titles out there its merely mediocre.

1.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars: Clone Wars Gambit: Siege 16 Sep 2010
Format:Hardcover
This is a book that should have been condensed down to fifty pages and attached to the Stealth novel. It never really engages you other than to prompt you to start skipping first paragraphs and by half way though I found myself skipping pages, so dull and uninspired the lets deals with our emotions premise. The editor has truly let Karen Miller down by allowing this book to read more like an investigative report into an accident where people are trying to apportion blame. The sad thing is it looks like Miller has taken her writing in the same format as Karen Traviss, in fact Traviss is acknowledged at the very start. For those of you not familiar with Traviss' writing you have pages of dialogue leading up to the only major incident in the book only to have it finish in one or two pages. Unfortunately, the book is allowed to meander with little to no sub plot other than how Obi Wan feels working in a mine or Anakin feels when touching machines. Asoka is barely mentioned which is a shame as the character could have added so much more to this mundane book which I suspect is only in existence to draw more money from Star Wars fans. Sorry Karen, I have read this book twice, the second time without skipping pages as I wanted to be proved wrong with my first assessment, and still found it a chore instead of a pleasure to read.
If you want to read this book I would recommend using the local library and save your money.
