Across the galaxy, the Clone Wars are raging. The Separatists, led by Count Dooku, the onetime Jedi and now secret Sith Lord, continue to press forward, and more and more worlds are either falling, or seceding and joining the cause. Under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, the Republic heroically battles on, championed by its huge army of cloned soldiers and their Jedi generals.

Anakin Skywalker, believed by some to be the prophesied Chosen One destined to bring balance to the Force, is now a Jedi Knight under the tutelage of his Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Death is a constant possibility - and his chances of survival aren't improved by the unexpected arrival of an apprentice: Ahsoka, a brash, inexperienced 14-year-old Padawan apprenticed to Anakin. But there's no time for Anakin to question his latest orders: He and Obi-Wan have been assigned a new mission, and failure is not an option.

Jabba the Hutt's precious infant son has been kidnapped, and when the frantic parent applies to the Jedi for help, it falls to Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, and their clone troops to track down the evidence and retrieve the missing Huttlet.

And more is at stake: For a grateful Jabba just might allow the Republic access to the Hutt-controlled space lanes that the Grand Army desperately needs in order to beat the Separatists into submission.

But the Republic is not the only power that craves access to those space lanes. Count Dooku, determined to win the prize for the Separatists, has set a trap for the Jedi. When they find the Huttlet, they will also find Dooku's master assassin, Asajj Ventress, and countless legions of battle droids waiting to spring a trap. Download and start listening now!

    " This book was realy cool, i enjoyed the action and adventure asspects of the story. "

    " Jabba's son is kidnapped by the Separatists who make it look like it was the Jedi. The Jedi have to rescue the little slimer. Anakin has a padawan. LOTS of clone troopers die. Kenobi fights Asajj Ventress. Once again, Traviss's anti-jedi streak shows, strongly. Asajj is shown as some hurt little girl who is just trying to make up for her masters death by becoming a mass murderer. "

    " About half-way through now and it's very good. Karen Traviss is the mind behind the Republic Commando series (reading Hard Contact right now as well), and is based on the new FULL-LENGTH ANIMATED FEATURE (DON'T CALL IT A CARTOON!) The movie was awesome. The book is well worth a read; it will fill you in on a lot of backstory as the Revenge of the Sith novel did. "

    " This pretty well sums up the background of who's who "

    " R2-D2 is a cleaver machine. M.W. "

    " Really enjoyed this. Haven't seen the movie, nor do I intend to. The plot was okay, but the interaction between Anakin and the men of the 501st was well done and I loved reading about Anakin's conflict about being the Chosen One, yet being unable to save the ones he cares about. I can easily relate to his feelings. It sets the stage for his decisions in the 3rd prequel. It was also fun to see Palpatine further his masterplan and gloat at being basically able to do what he wants without the Jedi picking up on it. Some of the action scenes bored me, but since this is a Clone Wars novel, battles are unavoidable. And it was great to see into the mind of Jabba and find out there is a reason why he is called Jabba the Great. All in all a fun read. "

    " One of Karen Traviss' better SW books. A simple story with lots of action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Cooper | 12/27/2013

    " [Book:] Fun read! Nathan and I liked it. This was Nathan's first grown up book that he read. Grandma Linda bought it for him and he had a hard time putting it down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeanette | 12/25/2013

    " We read this as a family and my kids loved it. Of course, they are 8, 6 and 2. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zoe | 12/7/2013

    " Expands on the movie with the different characters thoughts as well. Much, much more material. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 10/30/2013

    " A fun book, if you like Star Wars. Authors like Karen Traviss amaze me as how they can survive as a writer, no matter what the subject. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Bloom | 10/27/2013

    " not bad. could have been longer "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 coty | 9/2/2013

    " like all my other star wars movies and animated movies this one really tells waht happens in the clone wars and was one of the best clone wars books i have read so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil Salomon | 7/22/2013

    " Karen Traviss rewrites The Clone Wars movie and transforms it into a compelling and complex story. I highly recommend to anyone who saw the movie to take the bad taste away. She seems to have been given a lot of freedom to concentrate on character and give us what the filmmakers were unable to. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessie | 1/6/2013

    " A much faster read than she normally puts out. The whole Padawan for Anakin thing feels very out of place, but the character herself is fun. Not very memorable, but at least it wasn't painful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 9/18/2011

    " A good installment for the early Star Wars years. Anakin iskinda whiny, and struggles with the evil dark side, but that's a bit normal. Over, it's entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Fizzgig76 | 3/29/2011

    " Jabba the Hutt's child is kidnapped by the Separatists in a means to frame the Jedi and Anakin and the Jedi are asked to get him back. The adaptation of the animated movie was as expected an easy read with no real shocks or twists. Very average. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 3/23/2011

    " Sweet book. Karen even added in the deleted scenes!!! Yeah, they rocked! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leisuresuitlarry | 2/21/2011

    " It's good to see Anakin act like he cares about something. It adds a lot of depth to the man that will become Darth Vader. One thing that bugged me was the time involved. All of this happens over one or two days? The liberties taken with space travel were just too distracting "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 3/6/2010

    " Traviss does it again, taking what could have been a boring movie novelization and breathing character and beauty into the script. "
