In the second book in the Republic Commando series we take a deeper look into Etain s growth from a failing inconseuential and pathetic padawan into a warrior who dons armor weilds two lightsabers and cares for her troops The focus of this book on Etain s personal development really gives readers their first look into a Jedi Knight that isn t single minded boring and completely self absorbedEtain has to struggle with some very real problems in this novel and she is forced to decide just how far she s willing to allow the ends to justify the means to keep her troops safe Along the way she also grows closer to a commando named Darman and we see that relationship challenge the status uo for not only the Jedi and the commando but the suad as a wholeThe author does a great job in not only keeping you engaged in the story line counter terrorism operations and the development of the two primary protagonists Etain and Darman but also in defining what clone life was like during the Clone Wars Clone life was heavily influenced by Mandalorian society so readers are given an opportunity to glean some history of the Mandalorians that isn t possible anywhere else except KOTORThe first book of this series was pretty spot on but it was an introduction and book two really does a lot to carry the story forward I was a little concerned during the transition between the books but the old gang was reunited through a series of unfortunate events and the story arc picked up right where it left offFor those of you who have been reading my reviews as I work my way through the Star Wars Extended Universe from Dawn of the Jedi to the Thrawn Trilogy you ll know that Darth Bane has been the gold standard in which I ve been gauging all other storylines Republic Commando is uickly shaping up to be a rival for that illustrious titleI ve still got two books to read in this series but so far this is a can t miss story line The Sharpe Companion The Early Years from a Tantra y salchicha.

SUMMARY Ñ VANSOUTLETMALL.CO.UK ´ Karen Traviss

Following the eruption of the bloody Clone Wars at the battle of Geonosis both sides remain deadlocked in a stalemate that can be broken only by elite warrior teams like Omega Suad clone commandos with terrifying combat skills and a lethal arsenal For Omega Suad deployed deep behind enemy lines it's the same old special ops grind sabotage espionage ambush and assassination Bu. Finallya uality Star Wars novel that allows us fanboys and fangirls to hold our helmeted heads up high The Republic Commando series is what the Star Wars EU is supposed to be and it has me splooging and leaking happy like a sieve Ever since Timothy Zhan single handedly jumpstarted the Star Wars EU most of the examples I ve read have left me somewhere between Meh and downright hacked off Only RA Salvatore s Vector Prime had really warmed my cockles To that exclusive list of one I now add the Republic Commando series which has set my cockles aflame a potentially life threatening condition if one happens to be dasypygal and hasn t kept their rump properly waxedbut I digress After reading the first of the Republic Commando novels Hard Contact I was negligent in failing to mention how genuinely impressed I was with both the story s concept and Ms Traviss execution Therefore I ll try to make partial amends for my earlier oversight by tossing some her way now because she praising really is doing a WOW job with this series This is good solid SF in its own right not just good compared to other Star Wars stories For better or worse Ms Traviss stellar effort will keep me picking up Star Wars EU novels because she shows that when done well this can be among the greatest science fiction backyards in which to play Before I background the series and do the plot summary I want to address two preconceptions I had going into this series in case others are thinking along similar lines When I picked up Hard Contact I did so thinking that at best I was in for a light diversion and a fast fun read 3 stars if it really worked hard Why First it s Star Wars Now don t get me wrong I love me some Star Wars and Star Trek Babylon 5 Fireflyyes go on and say itNERD and I ve read a handful of the tie in books that I ve enjoyed However normally I read them with the expectation of a briskly paced non neuron taxing story that is the literary euivalent to a burger and a beer or several They taste great and fill you up but beyond that are soon fairly forgettable Second and MUCH worse in my opinion is that this is a tie in novel for the video game Star Wars Republic Commando I ve never played the game and wasn t aware that this was a tie in series when I purchased Hard Contact so it s safe to say that you do not need to be familiar with the game to enjoy the book However on the poor preconception scale a video game tie in book for a popular video game that is also part of a major brand like Star Wars oftenusuallyalmost always contains a major schlock factor because authors are just mailing it in to cash a check Well in this case my preconceptions werejustplainwrong I m here to tell you that Karen Traviss showed up with her A game took a terrific premise and then wrote as good a Star Wars novel as I ve read Still fun still briskly paced but with some surprising character depth and a really really good story SERIES BACKGROUNDThe series takes place in between the events of Star Wars II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars III The Revenge of the Sith and revolves around the fight between the Grand Army of the Republic made up of clones and the droid based army of the Separatists The series main characters are the most ubiuitous in the Star Wars universe ie the clone soldiers of the Grand Army of the Republic and yet until now have been mostly invisible as characters This series changes that The stories focus on Omega Suad an elite group of clone commandos who are the black ops division of the Clone Army handling assassinations sabotage espionage etc These specialized clones have much greater fighting skills and intelligence as well as individuality and a tremendous sense of loyalty towards their fellow soldiers However despite rating uber on the badassery scale Traviss manages to humanize these soldiers allowing the reader to care about them Part of this is accomplished through the immense loyalty they have for one another and the dangers they willing face to protect their comrades This emotional connection with the characters made a world of difference in my enjoyment of the story because the tension and drama became less vicarious and detached and palpable and intimate PLOT SUMMARYThis installment has Omega Suad on Coruscant having traced an upsurge in separatist attacks to the Republic s capital It appears the separatists may have a mole on the inside and are planning an attack that could devastate the capital and cripple the republic Traviss deftly lays out the plot and keeps the narrative tension pretty high In addition the reader is also show through a series of flashbacks the brutal training of the commandos and how they way they were treated as little than fodder by the Republic chain of command This evoking of empathy for the characters upbringing added to my connection with the story THOUGHTSThis is a terrific storyseries for SF fans even if they do not normally read Star Wars EU novels Karen Traviss is an excellent writer and if you haven t checked out her own series beginning with City of Pearl I would strongly recommend that you do City of Pearl is light years ahead of most debut novels I ve read and I thought it was amazing As for Triple Zero it s a wonderful story told by a skilled author with characters about whom you can really sink your heart into and care The fact that this novel is also set within the Star Wars universe is a nice bonus but it is certainly not the crutch that it has been for lesser writers40 stars HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Blood in the Dust fanboys and Living to Tell the Tale A

    Most readers myself included like a happy ending In fact J R R Tolkien suggested that a eucatastrophe an unexpected overcoming of seeming impossible peril is the best ending for a fantasy type story But Triple Zero's happy ending seemed pre ordained and inevitable The reader much less the characters hardly broke into a sweat It was too easy Complicated yes but easyI understand the limitations Fan Fiction puts on the author but Traviss merel
