As civil war between the Republic and the Separatists rages across the galaxy, nowhere is the fighting more fierce than on the swamp world of Drongar, where a beleaguered mobile hospital unit wages a never-ending war of its own, and where a Jedi Padawan is on a healing mission without her master. A battle is waged over the control of a priceless native plant, and an endless line of medlifters brings in the wounded and dying - mostly clone troopers, but also soldiers of all species.
While the healers work desperately to save lives, others plot secretly to profit from the war - either by dealing on the black market or by manipulating the events of the war itself. In the end, though, all will face individual tests: a Padawan, a surgeon, a galactic reporter, a conniving Hutlese administrator, and a corrupt local official. And only those of staunch spirits will survive to fight another day.

This story line is a continual rant on the fallacy of good vs evil. The author could not step away from their political views long enough to write a si-fi book about the most well known story line on the planet. The good Jedi vs the evil Sith seams to be too deep a concept for the author to get their head around. At min 46 the author, in one of the many rants, states how the news is pushing a story line about the fight against the evil Count Dooku but then states as a fact "in reality it was about commerce and capitalism as most wars, even holly wars were." I have every book in all the star wars series from the New Jedi Order, Legacy of the Force, and Fate of the Jedi. I will never buy another book written by Michael Reaves or Steve Perry. On the other hand if you hate it when people stand up against evil and do something about it this book is for you.
