Book Description

Nov 2004 Star Wars: Clone Wars (Del Rey Paperback)
As the Clone Wars rage, Jedi Master Yoda must once again face one of his greatest adversaries: Count Dooku. . . .

The savage Clone Wars have forced the Republic to the edge of collapse. During the height of the battle, on Jedi Knight escapes the carnage to deliver a message to Yoda on Coruscant. It appears that Dooku wants peace and demands a rendezvous. Chances are slim that the treacherous Count is sincere but, with a million lives at stake, Yoda has no choice.

The meeting will take place on Djun, a planet steeped in evil. The challenge could not be more difficult. Can Yoda win back his once promising pupil from the dark side or will Count Dooku unleash his sinister forces against his former mentor? Either way, Yoda is sure of one thing: This battle will be one of the fiercest he’ll ever face.

4.0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh air 25 Mar 2006
Format:Paperback
After Jedi Trial I was worried about the next in the range but I was not disappointed by this very enjoyable tale. i was concerned about yoda being a central character but the inclusion of the two young jedi as primary characters and the cameo appearences of Anakin and Obi-Wan made it a very palatable read. It has all the adventure and action of the films coupled with the psychological depth the book range has always managed effectively. The comic aspects never overrule the story in a 'Jar Jar Binks' way and are a much needed injection into the Clone Wars range which was sinking into an understandable but rather tedious morbidity beforehand. The development of Dooku's character is also interesting and leaves you wanting to know more about him. I was a bit dipleased that Asajj Ventress escaped her comeuppance, especially when things looked set for a final confrontation between her, Obi-wan and Anakin. But nevermind, that battle is obviously for another time.
In short, this book is good fun and a pleasure to read. I look forward to more from Sean Stewart, someone who can write Yoda even better than Lucas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoda - Dark Rendezvous 25 Jan 2005
Format:Paperback
I think Sean Stewart is either lucky, being able to write about Yoda as the centre of attention in a Star Wars novel, or chosen very carefully to write this one in particular.
It has everything a Star Wars novel should have. The wicked sense of humour he has given Yoda is comical too. It is a great change to read a Star Wars novel with such a mix of characters -never a shortcoming in any SW novel, from the droids and children, to another sidekick for Count Dooku, as well as other known and not so well known Jedi.
The insight into more of what lies within the Jedi temple is almost as refreshing as the book. I enjoyed reading it from cover to cover, as I do with most SW novels. Unlike some, this was not hard going. It was easy to read, and I, like most who read the continually growing stable of SW novels enjoy learning more and more about that Star Wars Galaxy.
Also I am eagerly awaiting the final SW episode in May this year.
If the force is strong in anyone on this backwater planet, its strong in George Lucas.

2.0 out of 5 stars very disapointed 24 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback
I bought this item expecting it to be new and in a new condition. It was new but had been posted from america in a carrier bag??!!?? It is battered and damaged to looking like its been read by an angry child. Also I looked as many times as I could in as many places I could to make sure it was being posted from england I could find nothing to indicate otherwise. So I bought my item expecting a new book within a week. It took 22 days to arrive because it came from america?? Why was this fact hidden from me. This has really put me off from using amazon in the future. I am going to be requesting a full refund, as I have been conned

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Star Wars Clone Wars Novel 12 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sean Stewart's eloquent, witty, discriptive writing puts you at the heart of this story, with the tragic tale of Vjun and the final fate of it populous. I love Yoda's undercover masquerade, there are some delicious scenes in this novel which had me laughing and wishing that this was adapted for television. I heartily reccomend this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh. 28 May 2013
By Mike
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is too long for the story it tells. The entire book covers the journey to the planet and once there the whole event is such an anti climax. I liked the inclusion of a Gran Jedi as a main character, for such a wide universe these novels always seem to focus on humans. Ventress as always steals the show. The rest should have been a subplot rather than the main plot of a novel. All in all, far from a good book, it's an ok-ish book
