Publisher's Summary

Mischievous and resolved, courageous to the point of recklessness, Anakin Skywalker has come of age in a time of great upheaval. The 19-year-old apprentice to Obi-Wan Kenobi is an enigma to the Jedi Council, and a challenge to his Jedi Master. Time has not dulled Anakin's ambition, nor has his Jedi training tamed his independent streak. When an attempt on Senator Padme Amidala's life brings them together for the first time in 10 years, it is clear that time also has not dulled Anakin's intense feelings for the beautiful diplomat.

The attack on Senator Amidala just before a crucial vote thrusts the Republic even closer to the edge of disaster. Masters Yoda and Mace Windu sense enormous unease. The dark side is growing, clouding the Jedi's perception of the events. Unbeknownst to the Jedi, a slow rumble is building into the roar of thousands of soldiers readying for battle. But even as the Republic falters around them, Anakin and Padme find a connection so intense that all else begins to fall away. Anakin will lose himself. and his way, in emotions a Jedi, sworn to hold allegiance only to the Order, is forbidden to have.

Based on the story by George Lucas and the screenplay by George Lucas and Jonathan Hales, this intense and revealing novel by best-selling author R.A. Salvatore sheds new light on the legend of Star Wars, and skillfully illuminates one of our most beloved sagas.

What the Critics Say

"Actor Jonathan Davis gives the characters American or British accents, depending on the nationality of the actors in the film version, and these characters are so on-target as to make the drama entirely believable." (AudioFile)

    "Good Book"

    If you liked the movie you will like the book. You get a deeper understanding of the story by getting inside the heads of the characters. There are a number of scenes that didn't make it into the movie.

    "Excellent narrative"

    I really enjoyed this version, providing more insight into the characters' thoughts than does the film counterpart. Scenes deleted from the movie were included much to the enhancement of the story. Both author and narrator did an admirable job. I fully recommend.

    "very well done"

    this reading was very well done. the reader spoke in the voices of the characters while reading their spoken lines and he did a good job.
    there were also sound effects and music presumably from the movie that added nicely to the reading.

    Any additional comments?

    If you are a fan of Boba Fett, you'll love the detail given his backstory here as opposed to the movie.

    Story
    "Don't hate! Appreciate!!"

    For those who continually find fault with the prequel films, please direct your attention to the wonderful novels that accompany the ever critiqued stories of Anakin Skywalker. The much needed insight into the motivations of the prequel characters are found within this recording. Here the love between the main leads is explained and becomes a romantically intriguing example of young love, as opposed to awkward and uncomfortable. Here one is able to see that thematically the idea of "clones" transcends that of just cloned troopers. There are wonderful father/son moments between many of the characters that are touching and profound. Read and listen to this wonderful book, then avert your attention to the film to watch with a deeper perspective. You'll be glad you did!

    "Nice Read"

    This was a pretty good read. It was no classic, but the story flowed well. Basically it somewhat fills in blanks the movie couldn't cover.
