501st




      501st
The Clone Wars are over, but for those with reason to run from the new galactic Empire, the battle to survive has only just begun The Jedi have been decimated in the Great Purge, and the Republic has fallen Now the former Republic Commandos the galaxy s finest special forces troops, cloned from Jango Fett find themselves on opposing sides and in very different armor Some have deserted and fled to Mandalore with the mercenaries, renegade clone troopers, and rogue Jedi who make up Kal Skirata s ragtag resistance to Imperial occupation Others including men from Delta and Omega squads now serve as Imperial Commandos, a black ops unit within Vader s own 501st Legion, tasked to hunt down fugitive Jedi and clone deserters For Darman, grieving for his Jedi wife and separated from his son, it s an agonizing test of loyalty But he s not the only one who ll be forced to test the ties of brotherhood On Mandalore, clone deserters and the planet s own natives, who have no love for the Jedi, will have their most cherished beliefs challenged In the savage new galactic order, old feuds may have to be set aside to unite against a far bigger threat, and nobody can take old loyalties for granted.

    Karen Traviss continues to be one of the best things about the Star Wars EU with this, the fourth volume in what is essentially the Clan Skirata series As the beginning of what is basically a new, second, story arc, it lacks the emotional whallop of Order 66 , but in addition to laying the groundwork for the next series of conflicts and adventures, it also further defines the personalities of the various clones, begins to explore the myriad of relationships among the hodge podge cast that inha Karen Traviss continues to be one of the best things about the Star Wars EU with this, the fourth volume in what is essentially the Clan Skirata series As the beginning of what is basically a new, second, story arc, it lacks the emotional whallop of Order 66 , but in addition to laying the groundwork for the next series of conflicts and adventures, it also further defines the personalities of the various clones, begins to explore the myriad of relationships among the hodge podge cast that inhabits Kyrimorut, peals away new and interesting layers of the Mandoloria...

    Of course I only find out after reading this that there s not going to be a conclusion to this series That s seriously unsatisfying This novel essentially cliff hangs Don t bother reading it stop with Order 66.

    That s how tyranny succeeds When folks think it won t affect them Until it eventually does This book was selected in my Star Wars book of the month club Plus, a good friend of mine gave me the book, which meant I absolutely had to read it The Clone Wars has ended, and the Republic is now the Empire Darman and Niner are stuck in Vader s 501st, Vader s Fist Darman struggles with the events of the last book, and both long to be home on Kyrimorout with Kal Skirata, Atin, Fi, and the other r That s how tyranny succeeds When folks think it won t affect them Until it ev...

    I love Traviss s characters, but this Commando installment is probably the weakest example of her prose Lots of repetition Repeating things about what Clones are like Especially if you ve read other books in this series Stuff gets repeated Within a few paragraphs There s often repetition.But the cha...

    This was not as strong as the previous Commando books, and the series is starting to read like a Mandalorian ethnography Lighter on action and intrigue, Karen Traviss has shifted the focus to personal drama and family dynamic To be honest it s starting to feel like a soap opera, As Mandalore Turns or The Cloned and the Restless if you will.While this book was a little slower than its bretheren, I am looking forward to the next book and seeing how Darman pulls off his daring escape Hopefully t This was not as strong as the previous Commando books, and the series is starting to read like a Mandalorian ethnography Lighter on action and intrigue, Karen Traviss has shifted the focus to personal drama and family dynamic To be honest it s starting to feel like a soap opera, As Mandalo...

    DNF 50 434So kuch has been established and happened to the cast at this point in the series Its revealed a different side of the sometimes simplistic Star Wars universe, and also delivered on mostly compelling war dramas Its why I m sad to say I dropped this one.I looked up the plot summary, and a lot of good stuff happens in here The problem is that it exemplifies the worst aspects of the series up to this point Traviss is a frustrating writer, because she repeatedly demonstrates a knack DNF 50 434So kuch has been established and happened to the cast at this point in the series Its revealed a different side of the sometimes simplistic Star Wars universe, and also delivered on mostly compelling war dramas Its why I m sad to say I dropped this one.I looked up the plot summary, and a lot of good stuff happens in here The problem is that it exemplifies the worst aspects of the series up to this point Traviss is a frustrating writer, because she repeatedly demonstrates a knack for looking at the fantastical elements of the prequels and grounding them with real world morality in a way that s interesting and thought provoking.She was also in dire need of a good editor, because every book past the first is bloated, with each one showingandof that bloat None of these books needed to be as long as they were It was less noticeable with previou...

    A novel set in the universe that we all know and love This book is not considered canon It is the continuation of the Republic Commando series but it is known as the Imperial Commando novel since the galaxy is now ruled by the Empire I strongly recommend reading the previous books before this one In this book we learn how recent events are affecting everyone and how they are adjusting to their new lives The old adage out of the frying pan into the fire describes this book.This series is n A novel set in the universe that we all know and love This book is not considered canon It is the continuation of the Republic Commando series but it is known as the Imperial Commando novel since the galaxy is now ruled by the Empire I strongly recommend reading the previous books before this one In this book we learn how recent events are a...

    I didn t finish this one, and I probably never will What I did read did not thrill me I loved the idea of seeing what happened to the clones post Clone Wars It was a great concept, and in someone else s hands, it could have been a great book But this was typical Karen Traviss filled with unnecessary romance and dripping with melodramatic emotional goo Clone soldiers with wives and children Weepy Manda...
