Torrent Company's Captain Rex agrees to temporarily relieve Anakin Skywalker of Ahsoka, his ubiquitous and insatiably curious Padawan, by bringing her along on a routine three-day shakedown cruise aboard Captain Gilad Pellaeon's newly refitted assault ship. But the training run becomes an active and dangerous rescue mission when Republic undercover agent Hallena Devis goes missing in the middle of a Separatist invasion.
Dispatched to a distant world to aid a local dictator facing a revolution, Hallena finds herself surrounded by angry freedom fighters and questioning the Republic's methods and motives. Summoned to rescue the missing operative who is also his secret love, Pellaeon, sworn to protect the Republic over all, is torn between duty and desire. And Ahsoka, sent in with Rex and six untested clone troopers to extract Hallena, encounters a new and different Jedi philosophy, which shakes the foundation of her upbringing to the core. As danger and intrigue intensify, the loyalties and convictions of all involved will be tested.

i am normally not a fan of This authors work in the star wars arena. how ever her take on Palleon was really good and well worth the listen he is a character we see through the whole novel series i think he just died in one of the newer books, its nice to see. i enjoyed this one a lot and has changed my mind about this author i thought the narrator did a fine job.
Star Wars The Clone Wars No Prisoners is getting better towards the end of the novel. It offers a very well written analysis of Anakin's dilemma with his attachment and marriage to Padme. Jedi master Altus is my favourite character and a copy of Qui Gon Jin. It gives a new spectrum of the jedi order and not only the dogmatic side of the orthodox Yoda-party.
The narrator is not a Mark Thompson but he is better than the others.
Music and sound effects are up to date and well balanced.
The story is not at all like masterpieces such as The Old Republic Revan or like Fate of the Jedi but absolutely worth your time.
The movie tagline would go as folows: "War is always wrong".
Joakim V. from Sweden - I have read 48 Star Wars novels.
