Publisher's Summary

Mace Windu is a living legend: Jedi Master, senior member of the Jedi Council, skilled diplomat, devastating fighter. Some say he is the deadliest man alive. But he is a man of peace, and for the first time in a thousand years, the galaxy is at war.

Now, following the momentous events climaxing in the Battle of Geonosis, Master Mace Windu must undertake a perilous homecoming to his native world to defuse a potentially catastrophic crisis for the Republic...and to confront a terrifying mystery with dire personal consequences.

The jungle planet of Haruun Kal, the homeworld Mace barely remembers, has become a battleground in the increasing hostilities between the Republic and the renegade Separatist movement. The Jedi Council has sent Depa Billaba, Mace's former Padawan and fellow Council member, to Haruun Kal to train the local tribesmen as a guerilla resistance force, to fight against the Separatists who control the planet and its strategic star system with their droid armies. But now the Separatists have pulled back, and Depa has not returned. The only clue to her disappearance is a cryptic recording left at the scene of a brutal massacre - a recording that hints of madness and murder, and the darkness in the jungle...a recording in Depa's own voice.

Mace Windu trained her. Only he can find her. Only he can learn what has changed her. Only he can stop her.

Jedi were never intended to be soldiers. But now they have no choice. Mace must journey alone into the most treacherous jungle in the galaxy and into his own heritage. He will leave behind the Republic he serves, the civilization he believes in, everything but his passion for peace and his devotion to his former Padawan. And he will learn the terrible price that must be paid when keepers of the peace are forced to make war.

What the Critics Say

"Close your eyes, and there is Mace Windu (portrayed on the silver screen by Samuel L. Jackson). Narrator Jonathan Davis's voice is perfect, and behind him are the first-class special effects and music that characterize most Star Wars audiobooks. Even better, the writing is also first-class - this is a descent into the heart of darkness for one of the most powerful Jedi masters, who in Stover's hands comes alive with the complexity of a spiritual and physical man".

    "Poorly Abridged"

    I'm not sure why this was abridged, I don't care enough to research it. But I have read the book and listened to the audiobook, and there is simply no value in the abridged version, not as compared to the book. The story is good, as is the narrator, I wish he could have read the whole story, its not his fault. You are better off reading it, I'm sorry to say.

    Story
    "Action Packed, Great 1 shot SW novel"
    Where does Star Wars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is not the best SW novel out there, but definatly in the top 10.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The obvious choice is Mace Wundu, but I would have to say, Nick. Nick is a Korran rebel that aids Mace for most of the book. Quick witted, and a deceptivly capable fighter, Nick is far from the "dopey sidekick".

    "Great book!!!"

    I loved this novel. You really get to know about Mace the man. The only thing I didn't like about this book is that one my favorite characters died.

    Story
    "An explanation of why he's such a beloved Jedi."
    What did you love best about Star Wars: Shatterpoint: A Clone Wars Novel?

    I've been wanting to get this book for a while. Mace is my number two favorite Jedi of all time, and this book does a great explanation as of why.


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

    Windu's struggle between his dark-side roots and his devotion to the Jedi teaching throughout the book is very compelling. Nice to see that the greatest Jedi (plural) arent the ones most static in there beliefs.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to use 29:45 of chapter 2 against feminist complaining about the word "bossy". It will be easier to show them how it should be a compliment. Little girl saving boys FTW.

    "When in Doubt, Surrender"

    Facinating look into the tortured soul of a Jedi consumed by the dark side? No. Rip-roaring adventure of an incredibly powerful Jedi in no danger whatsoever of being consumed? Here and there but not really. An intriguing premise and a great character are both wasted in this story. Mace Windu is one of the two most powerful Jedi of his time. It will be nice to read a story where the author is unashamed of reveling in that awesomeness instead of apologizing for it by repeatedly humiliating him. What the author should apologize for is the Jungle Jedi. Yes, ignorant, animalistic force users who are supposedly his kin are the actual main characters of the story. Mace is the good Jedi. Enough said.
