The Republic is decaying, even under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, who was elected to save the galaxy from collapsing under the forces of discontent.

On the tiny but strategic planet of Ansion, a powerful faction is on the verge of joining the growing secessionist movement. At the Chancellor's request, the Jedi Council sends two Jedi Knights, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luminara Unduli, along with their Padawans Anakin Skywalker and Barriss Offee, to stabilize the planet's population. To succeed, the Jedi will have to fulfill near-impossible tasks, befriend wary strangers, and influence two great armies - stalked all the while by an enemy sworn to see the negotiations collapse and the mission fail.

    " It was a interesting to find out about some of the stuff and had some scenes i enjoyed especially with anakin and obi wan that I like. but all in all wasn't very good... Quitte boring, I think it deserves more than a star but I couldn't give it *1/2 "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matthew | 2/12/2014

    " Ultimately a fairly uninteresting diversion from the big story of the Star Wars universe, it's well written and light hearted, but quite forgettable. Taking place right before Episode II, it doesn't tie into that film in any notable way and is a self contained small scale story. We get some interesting moments with Anakin and Obi-Wan, there's some exciting action and it borders on a charming little tale at times, but it's not enough to leave an impression. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jed Stephenson | 2/8/2014

    " Not as good as I thought it would be "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Argott | 2/6/2014

    " The Approaching Storm is a nifty little prelude to Attack of the Clones. I would recommend this book to everyone I know, except they are all too insecure to read it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessie | 1/31/2014

    " I think the only redeeming facet of this book was the introduction of Luminara Unduli and, more importantly, Barriss Offee, who will soon play an important part in the Medstar series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick Gilbert | 1/25/2014

    " A very light(like you expected anything else) bit o' fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jazzie | 1/24/2014

    " It was alright, but kind of pointless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandon Meikle | 1/8/2014

    " A GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT book,. About a lesser known character called Luminara Unduli. STAR WARS fans, I suggest you read it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bill | 12/14/2013

    " Anakin is a confused, angry teen. What else is new? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex Seals | 12/3/2013

    " This was a very good book. It was interesting to learn about some Jedis that we do not see much in the movies, and learn about a planet that is not in the movies. I was surprised at how good it was. "

    " Storia consistente. degna di essere chiamata storia. Ben scritta. Romanzo leggibile "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Walt | 8/13/2013

    " A little odd in that many of the challenges faced by the heroes were overcome by skills apart from "aggressive negotiating." It is a refreshing take on the genre. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carlos Chavez | 5/16/2013

    " Pointless to read. Had nothing to do with Star Wars other than that it uses the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ari | 4/9/2012

    " Not a very good book. It sets up the stage for Episode II. But in the long run who cares. Even the writing was on the level for the junior knights sereis. You can skip this booka and jsut read the wiki. "
