Clone Wars Gambit: Siege-Karen Miller
On the Outer Rim, the planet Lanteeb has no strategic value, no political power, and one enormous problem: It has been invaded by an emboldened Separatist Alliance. To find out why, Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi have snuck onto Lanteeb--and now look oblivion in the eye........
Hiding their lightsabers beneath their dusty disguises, Anakin and Obi-Wan draw on their Jedi skills to stay one step ahead of Lok Durd's droid army on Lanteeb. The Jedi know that a captive scientist has given Durd the keys to a terrifying bioweapon. Durd knows that the Jedi are on his planet. With Yoda calling on the powers of the Jedi Council, with a new Separatist technology jamming the Guardians' communications, and with a traitor at the heart of the Republic's government, the wheels of war are turning. But the Separatists have blockaded Lanteeb. The finishing touches are being put on a weapon to destroy whole worlds. And it will be up to the two Jedi Knights and their most trusted comrades to liberate Lanteeb or forever suffer the consequences.
I was really excited to start this book. I had enjoyed the previous one (Stealth), which ends in a cliffhanger, by the way. Besides, Karen Miller is one of my favorite Star Wars authors (though I do wish that she would put less swearing in).
Amazing interaction between Obi and Ani
Characters that aren't in the movies; you don't know their fates
Padmé has a role
One of Obi's old loves was present. Anakin witnessed some evidence, and he was shocked, hurt, and angry at Obi.....for good reason, too.
Negative:The swearing. Yes, I do realize this is a war book, but still. The only good thing I can say is that it's words from the Star Wars Universe; they're not real words
The amount of vomiting. Neimodians have issues.
It was painful for me to see Ani so hurt
An amazing Star Wars book.
For violence in warfare and SW language
For all SW enthusiasts, sure. For all Clone Wars lovers, yes. For all those who are in love with Anakin, are you kidding me?! YES!!!!!!!!!!! Same goes for those Obi lovers. ;)
