Publisher's Summary

The turning point for the entire Star Wars saga is at hand.

After years of civil war, the Separatists have battered the already faltering Republic nearly to the point of collapse. On Coruscant, the Senate watches anxiously as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine aggressively strips away more and more constitutional liberties in the name of safeguarding the Republic. Yoda, Mace Windu, and their fellow Masters grapple with the Chancellor's disturbing move to assume control of the Jedi Council. And Anakin Skywalker, the prophesied Chosen One, destined to bring balance to the Force, is increasingly consumed by his fear that his secret love, Senator Padme Amidala, will die.

As the combat escalates across the galaxy, the stage is set for an explosive endgame: Obi-Wan undertakes a perilous mission to destroy the dreaded Separatist military leader General Grievous. Palpatine, eager to secure even greater control, subtly influences public opinion to turn against the Jedi. And a conflicted Anakin, tormented by unspeakable visions, edges dangerously closer to the brink of a galaxy-shaping decision. It remains only for Darth Sidious, whose shadow looms ever larger, to strike the final staggering blow against the Republic...and to ordain a fearsome new Sith Lord: Darth Vader.

What the Critics Say

"Stover fills in the blanks regarding one of cinema's most fascinating villains with respect and relish, providing answers to such questions as why Vader looked so weird and how he became Luke's dad. This is the perfect companion to the blockbuster film." (Publishers Weekly)

    "WOW"

    This book was just as great as the prior books in the series. I cannot wait until I can read the rest of the books. The voices were great and pace at which it was read was just perfect. A must read for all Star Wars fans.

    "Love it ! The writing is beautiful"
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars Episode III the most enjoyable?

    The way he write makes it so immersive.Never over explain combat and so much whats going on inside the head of the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars Episode III?

    How long and amazing he write the first fight against Tyranus aka Dooku.If only it was that good in the movie and the movie fight was great.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Just as good, he is amazing !


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    So many, hard to pick just one.


    Any additional comments?

    Really hope Stover get to write the VII novel.

    Story
    "Awesome sound effects to go with a great reading."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If they like Star Wars, then yes. In a heartbeat. The story itself is good, and the audiobook is superbly read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how the author fixed some of the movie's problems. His prose is a bit flowery at times, but I think it fits the epic feel of Star Wars. All novelizations should be this good.


    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Davis tells the story wonderfully, doing everything one would expect from a first-class reader. On top of that, the audiobook includes Star Wars theme music, sounds for blasters, lightsabers, and spaceship fights, along with machine-like enhancements for the voices of robotic characters (C-3PO, Grievous). I think they even brought in other voice actors for supporting roles. As far as readings go, this is the best one I've ever listened to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I very much liked the scene where Palpatine revealed himself to Anakin.

    "Best one in the series"
    If you could sum up Star Wars Episode III in three words, what would they be?

    character building explanations


    Any additional comments?

    My least favorite movie of the series but my favorite book. Great character building. Great story, you really feel what Anakin is going through. The actor sucked.

    Story
    "Brace yourself for a whining teenager's hissy fit"

    Like the films these books are... almost entirely.

    Like the last film, this one is full of almost too much whining and self centered childishness of a kid you really just want to shut up and deal with his stupid self...

    While there are tidbits of interesting backstory and a modicum of expositional internal dialogue, I gave this book a lower score mostly because it comes off far more as a radio show than a well written novel.
    In addition to the theme songs, the narrative itsself actually fails to convey the subjects without a HEAVY reliance on sound effects to describe what is ultimately Not described at all in the actual writing... For instance, I particularly dislike a far too repetative "Swoosh" sound used over and over and over to signify breaks between scene, or movement between settings... As if a real writer could not simply drop a line or two of narrative to make the transition clear...

    I think the narrator does an Excelent job hoever, and manages to replicate the sounds of essentially All the characters from the film - Just as they are portreyed in the film....

    If anything, I found myself refering to screen shots of the film to get a clear picture of what exactly each alien species and setting looks like - again, because the narration fails to explain their look sufficiently without it... Thankfully, there are actual images of every location and creature, but in an abscence of them as reference, the actual descriptions given are beyond usefully constructive... many times I listened to the explanation over and over, before finally pausing playback and refering to google images... :-/

    The one thing that this version does well however, is the description of lightsaber battles, oddly enough... an investigation into various methods and the blow-by-blow exploration of technique comes over far better in this version than the quick, theatrical swordplay of the film...

    Finally, I think this series in the cannon is really annoying in its use of characters that just slowly wear you down... Everyone knows Jar Jar is one of the most annoying characters ever introduced, but the novels generally keep his part minimal (perhaps in response)... no, it is Anakin that I find myself getting Sick and Tired of in this series Far Far more than anyone else...

    I found his part whiney and selfinterested in the movies, but to be stuck inside his stupid head time and time again in the book draws out his stupid part to really become unbearable. It is ultimately a Relief to finally get over his sad self and wrap this stuff up!

    Not a bad book, and a decent audible variation on the film... but not nearly as much Added to the film content as I had hoped for... Some people did their jobs very well, but others seemed to be leaning far to much on the film version to fill the blanks they left out of what comes off as laziness...
