Well this was uniue I ve ead cover blurbs that give away the set up of the book but never before have I ead one as Stealth has which gave away the entire plot Granted this book was just a four hundred page setup for the second book of the series but you d think they d leave the eader some suspenseOkay story and writing Tired of the Non Censure repetitious Anakin and Obi Wan arguments Glad to see Ahsoka growing Hard to believe only Bail Organa sees Anakin and Padme selationship but that s SW canon so Interesting that so many of the expended universe novels portray the Jedi as clueless buffoons if not outright villainsWritten like a youth story Herrin der Schmuggler rather than adult but it s hard to tell with the SW universe Just gottae Hope and Glory read these and Wild Space every so often to fully ground myself in the Obi Wan and Anakin Dynamic This duology has everything Obi Wan and Anakin being so in sync that theye literally almost one person Obi Wan and Anakin being so at odds that they are mere inches from killing one another Ahsoka having her own adventure A continuation of the Bail OrganaObi Wan friendship from Wild Space War crimes Yoda being REAL shady Some highlights The legendary BailPadmeAnakinObi Wan dinner party The charming domesticity is matched only by the intense awkwardness caused by the web of lies almost everyone knows about but can t acknowledge out loud Also it s VERY funny to think about how this occasion would have looked to Leia had she known about it All the post Zigoola symptoms that Obi Wan Ngui for Unity refuses to acknowledge Honestly I doeally like Taria Damsin e So this book is a bit of an odd one because it s such a mixed bagIt opens with a highly dramatic battle in which our protagonists are on the back foot and must use their ingenuity and skills to overcome the odds It s a good way to open a story with just one problem It bears no Hysterie relation whatsoever to what happens in theest of this book or its seuel and doesn t tie in to the main plot That s less than great As enjoyable as the action is it is disconnected from this story and makes you wonder as a Der Flügel des Engels : Autobiogr., Selbstzeugnisse, Briefe an Jack Kerouac reader what was the point Aside from you know trying to evokeeaders nostalgia by داستان‌های کوتاه امریکای لاتین replicating the opening to Episode III and get us invested by getting the adrenaline pumping The difference is there it actually had a significant tie in to the main plot here it s just a way to dramatically open the story I m given to understand that author publisher disputes with Karen Traviss suddenly extended this planned one book into two and that feels very obvious not just in the way that the dramatic opening takes up a uarter of the book but has no bearing on the main plot but in the way the middle drags and it takes such a long time to set up the plot and then the book cuts off extremely abruptly in order to set up the second half of the duologyOne of the things I disliked about Karen Miller s previous book The Clone Wars Wild Space was that she wrote our protagonists wildly out of character I was thus pleasantly surprised perhaps I should accurately say grateful andelieved to find that here she has a much better handle on their personalities and mannerisms Obi Wan and Anakin sound like Obi Wan and Anakin and their interactions with each other provide a lot of the entertainment in this book But again there s a cloud to this silver lining As another eviewer has mentioned Miller will get their voices just ight but then drag out the conversations for too long as if she doesn t uite know how to close them out so then it becomes decidedly out of character again with Love and Its Place in Nature: A Philosophical Interpretation of Freudian Psychoanalysis repetition of things already said and descending into petty bickering This doesn t feel like Obi Wan and Anakin at all An exception to this is Yoda He just never felt like Yoda at all to me and I was shocked when he view spoilerordered Obi Wan and Anakin to lie I know what the stakes are but it is never a good idea to do what he advocates it is only going to be far worse when the truth comes out Our unwilling scientist could easily be so bitter about it that she decides to help the Separatists willingly or spreads word of Jedi untrustworthiness and deception across the galaxy turning even people hostile against them hide spoiler No matter how bleak things got or how tempted they were to despair light would prevail over darkness The Clone Warsages on and Obi Wan and this is not a Special Agent Francesca review this is just me writing down everything i loved about this which is everything lol ashoka being basically anakin s little sister SHE CARES SO MUCH anakin being an emotional disaster as usual he feels everything and feelsesponsible for everyone this bitThey cheered each other up those two No matter how dire the "straits

Planet by planet darkness creeps across the galaxy Among warriors and generals among ordinary beings living in far flung worlds the fear will not go away We are losing this war Anakin Skywalker feels it too The Separatist Alliance withuthlessness and treachery is beating the Republic to every strategic target But after a costly clash T the need for clumsy words They were a better team than even he and ui Gon had been And while he understood completely the need for them to unravel their partnership not only because of the war but also because Anakin was a Jedi Knight now with his own Ein Goldfisch räumt auf responsibilities still he felt sharpegret Working without Anakin was like working half blindWHAT THE FUCK anakin implying that obi wan is his family ok Nobody in his life could ile him like Obi Wan And nobody could make him feel so lucky to be called friend THEY Innocent lives were depending on him Obi Wan was depending on him Letting him down was unthinkable at which point do i stop crying anakin saying that what he does best is fix broken things this is actually pretty good foreshadowing because anakin breaks the code constantly because he wants to save everything and everyone and believes the jedi should do that he can do but he s not allowed to If they hadn t needed to keep everything so clandestine Anakin would have indulged in forty fast backflips to celebrate getting out of those stifling vents in one piece hero of the epublic general and jedi knight anakin skywalker for y all anakin arguing with obi wan stop asking about my mom i don t want to to about my past drop itanakin one minute later why does obi wan never talks about what happened to him why is he so subdued he should tell me And I m not unsympathetic That was true He wasn t But he was coldly capable of denying sympathy and compassion if the task at hand The Worst Weather on Earth: A History of Mount Washington Observatory reuired him to be hard Obi Wan Kenobi was a far complicated man than a first glance would suggest obi wan being appreciated i love itanyways im trash for anakin and obi wan I am enjoying how Miller fleshes out the character of Obi Wan Also how she and other authors flesh out Anakin s fall to the Dark Side In this book you see the attachments and emotions that drive that fall If you are a Star Wars dork like I am this is a greatead Cliffhangers are always annoying but this book was mostly about Obi Wan getting progressively wounded and exhausted and filthy with every new chapter and being very stoic about it while literally every other character yells at him to get medical attention And I m very into that Karen Miller s high egard and curiosity concerning Obi Wan Kenobi is uite charming In her second Star Wars book Clone Wars Gambit Stealth every character has a lot to shoulder in the war even and especially Obi WanAhsoka has to consider as Anakin s Padawan than the teachings of the Jedi Order She cares for his well being and has learned how to ead her Master s emotions to help herself navigate and deal with his temperament Anakin struggles with the The Geology And Landscape Of Santa Barbara County, California, And Its Offshore Islands responsibilities of being the Chosen One What he feels they should do what he should do as such a prominent figure conflicts often with the wider doctrine of the Jedi not to mention how delicately he juggles his forbiddenelationship with Padm Obi Wan still wrestles with his misgivings as a teacher and his emotions over the health of a dear friend It s clear though that as Bail Organa brings a frightening new element in the war to the Jedi s attention this cast of extraordinary beings have Biopower: Foucault and Beyond rather ordinary problemsAll things considered Obi Wan and Anakin for as much as theyemain larger than life figures symbolic of the Jedi Order and its potential are still forced to deal with their very human emotions and drama After a harrowing skirmish on Kothlis Anakin and Obi Wan are forced to Jane Doe and the Cradle of All Worlds realize they both need some much neededest Obi Wan is still Is That Even a Country, Sir!

offend anakin s 
Anakin s and abilities as a Jedi Knight he also works to understand the ualities in himself that have made him so different from his former Padawan I loved the phrase Miller uses when she The Devil's Snake Curve: A Fan's Notes From Left Field reminds us Obi Wan Kenobi was a far complicated man than a first glance would suggest p 386 We learn too the dimensions of Obi Wan s psyche that are just as warm and inviting as Anakin but honed through years ofigorous discipline growing up surrounded by other Jedi Obi Wan s emotions are always checked by caution and propriety but that doesn t mean he doesn t have them He just deals with them differently Karen Miller helps make this obvious through many touching scenes where Anakin is characteristically tormented and driven by his feelings watched by Obi Wan who must always The March Up: Taking Baghdad with the 1st Marine Division remind him that the first thing about being a Jedi is prioritizingThe two have never been different have never been in tune to each other s strengths and weaknesses Miller captures theirelationship wonderfully They banter and feed off each other s unspoken body language they disagree and argue over intentions and dogma Ultimately they Pimpinella Meerprinzessin 1: Ankunft im Muschelschloss (German Edition) re veryespectful of each other and mindful of the conseuences each action or word may bringI was impressed before with the fresh perspective Miller brought to the Star Wars universe With Gambit Stealth she Das kurze Leben der Sophie Scholl remindseaders what she does best is unearth the mechanics that drive characters like Obi Wan to act as he does I don t think we could ask for a staunch supporter of such a wry manipulatorAs pleased as I was about this book I am curious about one thing if Star Wars has skittles does that mean they have Starburst or Twix bars too The fact that Karen is a damned good writer and storyteller doesn t have to be discussed or explained her Empress trilogy Défendre Jacob really impressed me and as I ve said to many people The Falcon Throne is in my honest opinion better than what GRRM has given us with ASoIaF And Karen has written than one Star Wars novel The Clone Wars Wild Space was her first and Ieally enjoyed what she did with Obi Wan and Bail Organa but damn in Stealth Karen Darfur's Sorrow: A History of Destruction and Genocide really opened up I haven tead any other Star Wars novel which so deeply explores and explains the characters of Obi Wan and Anakin Not only is the tale fast paced with great action scenes thrills and intrigue and true Star Wars moments but Karen managed to make it Black Gold in North Dakota really clear why Obi Wa.

Attachment Theory and Psychoanalysis
,
N and Anakin espected and trusted each other so much as well as showing us the depth of their bond When I finished the book and I still have to Nestle Toll House Recipe Collection read Siege I was struck with an incredible sadness because the betrayal s of Revenge of the Sith hit harder than even George Lucas could achieve and I m a huge fan of GL I kind of wanted to somehow travel to Obi Wan and Anakin and beg them to disappear to leave the war and everything else behind Damned good book andight up there with Star by Star and Traitor IntroductionWow Another awesome entry in probably one of my favorite series in Star Wars Just so you know this book is actually the fourth installment in The Clone Wars seriesso I ecommend that you ead the previous installments before Wicked City: The Other Side reading this one So let s get startedReviewBasically the book starts with Anakin Obi Wan and Ashoka and theest of the 501st Legion going to stop a CIS invasion lead by the infamous General Grievous The Officer, Surgeon…Gentleman! rest of the book focuses on Anakin and Obi Wan infiltrating the separatist controlled planet of Lanteeb to stop the creation of a bio weapon which ends up being the main storyline anywaysThe first thing I loved about this book was the opening chapters Holy buckets was it awesome We get a beautifully written and introspective space battle with Anakin and and eually deep intense and fast paced ground battle with Obi Wan and Ashoka and theest of the clone army This was probably my favorite part of the book It just was so awesome Like that is all I have to describe it It s very well written it s Barefoot through Mauretania really intense and somehow gave even depth to what is essentially the deepest characters in Star Wars I also love that the book had our main heroes fighting at a disadvantage Basically the CIS had hacked theepublic warships such that our main characters couldn t use any sort of communications during the battle This combined with the stellar writing and voice performance of audio book narrator Jeff Gurner made this battle feel even intense than it already was It was just perfectThe second thing I liked about this book was the main storyline itself I meanit wasn t uite as awesome as the opening battle but it was still pretty cool nonetheless We get to see insight into the Dude, You're a Fag: Masculinity and Sexuality in High School relationship between Anakin and Obi Wan the world building pertaining to Lanteeb was pretty cool and the execution of the overall storyline was pretty engaging I also liked how the book ended with thiseally cool action seuence where Anakin and Obi Wan have to escape from an entire legion of battle droids That seuence was also pretty awesome I also like that the battle at the end had alot of callbacks to the Battle of Geonosis the one from Attack of the Clones The other thing that I liked about this book was that it was able to tie into the TV show in a way that it could still be completely narratively satisfying on its own merits The problem with the previous installment Wild Space was that you were euired to watch the show in order to get closure on some of the book s storylines That is not the case here Stealth does a great job of having connective tissue to the actual show while at the same time telling its own story such that it is complete and narratively satisfying on its own I also like that this book choose to tie into some of the better episodes of season one this time aroundunlike Wild Space The episodes that Stealth ties into are Jedi Crash and Defenders of the Peace which I would say were some of my favorite episodes from season one Just to summarize that story arc basically Anakin and Ashoka crash land on a primitive planet and fight off a separatist invasion force with the help of the locals It s a pretty solid story arc in my opinion and I think the book did a great job of tying into it Now I have a couple gripes with this book This book brings back one of the minor antagonists from season one Lok Durd It s not so much that I have a problem with the character himself In fact I would say at this character was an excellent antagonist in this book He was uthless dangerous and eally did a great job of creating tension for our main characters He was also a fantastic love to hate villain He is just such a deplorable character that I hoped the Anakin decapitated him like he did with the other Trade Federation leaders in Revenge of the Sith Sadly that doesn t happen So overall I found this antagonist to be incredibly effective for the story However this wasn t not my problem with him The problem is that the last time we saw him was in than show "In The Episode Titled "the episode titled of the Peace where at the end he was captured by Anakin and Ashoka Now bear in mind this book takes place after that particular episode The problem is that the "book doesn t explain how our antagonist escaped after the events of "doesn t explain how our antagonist escaped after the events of of the Peace Literally the book gives absolutely zero explanation I would like to think that Darth Sideous freed him to create problems for the Jediyet the book doesn t tell us that though Sigh Such a preventable flaw My second issue I had with this book was that General Grievous does not show up in the open battle despite being one of the most important parts of it This just felt eally weird to me Why bother using this character if you weren t even going to actually put him in the book It wasn t a huge gripe since the battle is so great that it didn t Colorblind really need him But still had General Grievous had a lightsaber battle between Obi Wan Kenobi in this battleI would have considered this to be my favorite battle in all of Star Wars being only just beneath the first battle of Geonosis mind you But still the battle was awesomeThe other problem is that Obi Wan has a girlfriend in this book that hasn t been previously introduced in canon This is kind of weird mainly because in both the TV show and the Expanded Universe he already has a girlfriend Siri Tachi for Expanded Universe and Duchess Satine for the TV series So the book adding in another girlfriend to Obi Wan soster just felt eally odd It kind of makes Obi Wan seem like a hypocrite Obi Wan is supposed to be the perfect jedi so he s not supposed to have attachments In other words having even one girlfriend is too muchif the preuel era is anything to go by So having Obi Wan having a third girlfriend would be kind of flying in the face of that So Anakin can t have Padm but Obi Wan can have three girlfriends WTF Why the book just didn t use Dutchess Satine or Siri instead is an absolute mystery to me The girlfriend that the book uses isn t poorly written or agitating or anything like that but it kind of bothered me nonetheless The dumb thing is that the girlfriend in the story doesn t even add anything in hindsight Had she just either been eplaced by a pre existing girlfriend or been completely erased all together the book wouldn t of changed all that much Granted I liked her story line marginally and I also liked her dynamic with Ashoka But still It was an issueHowever the last thing about this book that bothered me was that Lucasfilm essentially divided this storyline into two parts I heard from somewhere that originally both this book and its seuel Siege were supposed to be one book However Lucasfilm decided that this book s storyline should be divided over the course of two books instead of just being one As a esult they probably had to add some filler so that this could be a full length book This kind of shows The pacing towards the middle parts of the book was kind of slow It wasn t boring or anything but I noticed that the pacing was much lower than it was compared to both the beginning and ending chapters However had both Stealth and Siege been one book I feel like that this book s pacing would have a tremendously improved However this didn t completely destroyed the book for me or anything mainly because the book emained fun from start to finishFinal verdictOverall this was a pretty good book It was fun action packed and was exceedingly well written The audio narrator once again did a
great job as 
job as did with previous entries in the series In spite of its many issues I thought this was a pretty good book I give it a 3725 stars another solid entry in my favorite line of Star Wars novel. Ientist enslaved by General Lok Durd is drawing on Lanteeb’s one natural Spring Cleaning (Virago Poetry) resource for a devastating bioweapon Now Anakin and Obi Wan have entered the eye of a storm Their presence has been exposed Lok Durd’s plans unveiled and a fight has begun for survival behind enemy lines and a chance of winning a war that must be fought at any co.
