About the Author
Karen Miller was born in Vancouver, Canada, but was raised in Sydney, Australia where she still lives today. She wanted to be a writer from early childhood, but that took some time to happen. While she was waiting she worked as a public servant, a receptionist, in the horse industry, in local government, in publishing, in telecommunications, as a college lecturer and ran her own science fiction/fantasy/mystery bookshop. She fell in love with Star Wars when she saw it on the big screen, the very first time it was released in 1977. That love affair has lasted her whole life. So far she's written six mainstream fantasy novels and two Stargate SG-1 tie-ins.

This book, if nothing else, had one of the best characterisations of Obi-Wan I've seen across Star Wars media. Karen Miller seems to really understand all the facets of his character, including some wonderful takes on some of the struggles we only get to see very briefly in the films and shows. There were a few poignant lines here and there that genuinely made my heart hurt, in a good way.
The story focuses on Obi-Wan Kenobi and Senator Bail Organa (Princess Leia's adoptive dad) as they are forced to travel into the untamed regions of Wild Space to a planet permeated with the power of the Sith. Obi-Wan has long been a favourite of mine and not only was it was nice to see him taking centre stage rather than the deeply irritating Anakin, but it was also interesting to see how he and Bail become the trusted friends seen in 'Revenge Of The Sith'.
The book begins in the immediate aftermath of 'Attack Of The Clones' and I really enjoyed reading how all the characters involved are coping with the emotional fallout of that story's ending. It's interesting to note that in those first few chapters Obi-Wan's voice in my head as I read his dialogue was very much Ewan McGregor but as the story transitioned into tieing-in to the animated series the voice became the much crapper version seen there. Even now I'm not sure if this was because Miller was acknowledging the shift in tone between the movies and the cartoon, or simply a subconscious affectation on my part.
The tie-ins to the cartoon provide all this book's worst bits, all of them involving the aforementioned irritating Skywalker and his apprentice Ahsoka, who is remarkably even more irritating.
Also the book does drag slightly, and perhaps intentionally, during Obi-Wan and Bail's long space voyage into Wild Space. So, by the last third of the book I was a little dispirited overall.Read more ›
