Book Description

6 May 2004 Star Wars (Book 38)
In the midst of the Clone Wars, Master Mace Windu returns to his Separatist-occupied homeworld, where his former Padawan, Depa Billaba, has been working as an undercover agent. But Depa hasn't been reporting in lately, and Republic intelligence has been gathering disturbing hints of bloody ambushes and terror-strikes in the deep outback. Mace trained Depa--he knows that no one but he can hope to even reach her, let alone save her from the darkness...

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Mace Windu 4 Aug 2005
Format:Paperback
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars An unusual Star Wars tale 3 Jun 2004
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Apocalypse A Long Time Ago... 13 Sep 2003
By Ian Tapley VINE VOICE
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mace windu 25 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My favorite character by far.

When i first saw the pre quels i went in with the idea that Yoda was the most powerful jedi ever existing. But during the time i developed a fashion of reading up.

This book explains who mace windu is. Why he is mace windu and what makes him the best.

Thank god samuel jackson asked for that purple saber which makes him stand out offcourse!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart of Darkness 26 May 2005
Format:Paperback
Shatterpoint is one of the best clone wars novels out there at the moment. The novel itself concerns Jedi Master Mace Windu and his return to his now Separatist occupied homeworld, there he must track donw his former Padawan who has gone rogue and in so doing see the nature of the dark side in its full force. The author perhaps drew on sources such as Conrad's Heart of Darkness or Kubrick's Apocalypse Now, the story is virtually the same, one man going into the jungle to confront the darkness within us all. Only in the case of Shatterpoint it is taken into the Star Wars universe.
The Story also fills in far more about Mace Windu and the kind of Jedi he is, since nothing about him is really explained in either episode 2 or 3, or the clone wars micro series. The novel also has an anti war sentiment as Mace must confront the savage war which has been raging on his home workd since before the clone wars even started and as he must still come to terms with his place as a general in the Grand Army of The Republic.
Read this book!

I'm not a Star Wars fan, but Matthew Stover is a great writer who takes a minor character from the movies and makes him much more interesting.
