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.

    " An excellent addition to the SW literature. It is both an explosive action story and a meditation on civilization, darkness in the philosophical sense, and the contradiction between being a keeper of the peace and a soldier at the same time. This isn't a SW story for kids though. It is filled with blood and guts and unsettling images of genocide. Stover has proven, much as he did in SW:NJO:Traitor, that he is a master of the mind-bending story that no other SW author I have read has matched. I remember reading or hearing that this story was inspired by Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness. If so, he has far exceeded Conrad in this story! "

    " You hear lots of praise thrown on Mr Stover and his contribution to the Star War universe and so far after reading two of his books I'm left underwhelmed. He does have a very readable writing style and goes into a lot of detail about the debate on what is good and bad but the stories just don't have the wow factor of a Zahn or Stackpole. Shatterpoint starts out great and Stover characterises Mace Windu well but once the reader hits the jungle it gets repetitive rather quickly, with Windu pursuing his former apprentice who I found I could care less about. However, Kar Vastor was an interesting character for someone untrained in the force but having a natural instinct for channelling into it and Nick Rostu was obviously written as the Han Solo stand in. Overall, it was just a relief to finish it in the end and move on to other things. At least its put me off reading the other Clone Wars stories (thereby wasting time in that area) since most praise this as the best one. "

    " A solid addition to the Clone Wars novels. This novel alone made me seek out more writing by Stover. His story was ever unfolding and it was hard to predict what the outcome would be at any given time. The characters were real and even the ones you'd think you wouldn't care about became emotionally bonding. Stover did a work of art in this piece. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by John Cook | 1/9/2014

    " This book is worth reading if only for Stover's compelling description of Mace Windu's perception of the Force. The conflict is somewhat peripheral to the ongoing Clone Wars, but the intrigue, and suspense is high as Mace Windu tries to retrieve his former Padawan on his home planet. "
