True colours of a brilliant series,
This review is from: True Colors (Star Wars: Republic Commando) (Mass Market Paperback)
We're at the mid-section with this book.
Hard Contact gave a brilliant start: burst into a second deployment, with all 4 RCs already facing their inner struggles and shock and realization that everything wouldn't be as they were told, as well as an encounter with a Jedi with no knowledge of the clone army.
Triple Zero gave us great ground to move forward; a book which built very firm relations and set up all the important relationships for the books to come, and even more insight to the individuality of the clones (which I love the most; these men are not identical copies. They may have the same genes, but they have their own thoughts, personality and problems).
Now we meet True Colors. This is pretty much a book of it's word; the true colors of the characters we've begun to love. Our heroes are pushed further to their limit. More importantly, we see in far greater depth the opposition of opinion from the 'great Jedi' which we learn primarily from Etain and Jusik. Traviss gives the reader an opportunity to see the Jedi Order from a different angle (which in my opinion is the truth). This book also creates some intense moments, but which all lead onto further brilliance in "Order 66"
