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 Padmé 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.

Based on the screenplay of the eagerly anticipated final film in George Lucas’s epic saga, bestselling Star Wars author Matthew Stover’s novel crackles with action, captures the iconic characters in all their complexity, and brings a space opera masterpiece full circle in stunning style.

Heartbreaking, realistic writing that makes you ache inside, yet somehow you are laughing, and there is a dull sense of hope at the end. Matthew will take your heart and caress it tenderly, then shatter it into little pieces while you can do nought but watch. It is worth it.

Very sad, but essential to numbers 4,5, and 6. The book is definitely better than the movie.

I enjoyed this book as my personal favorite out of the saga. Great writing and feeling. Amen to lordsurya08.

Meh. I didn't like the writing style at all. Mathew Stover is one of my favorite Star Wars authors (and fantasy. he does very good fantasy).
So, this was a major disappointment! Action scenes were dull. Writing was poor. Characters weren't convincing. If you really want a good SW novel than get Shatterpoint. Its excellent.

Stover is brilliant, if you enjoyed this one check out his NJO book Traitor. His writing is very powerful and he immerses you in the characters and in the Force itself. I wish Stover would write more star wars novels, or that more of them were at his level of quality.

Stunning finale to the first three episodes and the Clone Wars, also chronicles the fall of the republic and Anakin Skywalker and the rise of the Emperor and the Empire. A must read for anyone interested in Star Wars science fiction.

This book goes so much further than the movie...this book immerses you into the characters' minds and hearts.
