Mischievous and resolved, courageous to the point of recklessness, Anakin Skywalker has come of age in a time of great upheaval. The 19-year-old apprentice to Obi-Wan Kenobi is an enigma to the Jedi Council, and a challenge to his Jedi Master. Time has not dulled Anakin's ambition, nor has his Jedi training tamed his independent streak. When an attempt on Senator Padme Amidala's life brings them together for the first time in 10 years, it is clear that time also has not dulled Anakin's intense feelings for the beautiful diplomat.

The attack on Senator Amidala just before a crucial vote thrusts the Republic even closer to the edge of disaster. Masters Yoda and Mace Windu sense enormous unease. The dark side is growing, clouding the Jedi's perception of the events. Unbeknownst to the Jedi, a slow rumble is building into the roar of thousands of soldiers readying for battle. But even as the Republic falters around them, Anakin and Padme find a connection so intense that all else begins to fall away. Anakin will lose himself. and his way, in emotions a Jedi, sworn to hold allegiance only to the Order, is forbidden to have.

Based on the story by George Lucas and the screenplay by George Lucas and Jonathan Hales, this intense and revealing novel by best-selling author R.A. Salvatore sheds new light on the legend of Star Wars, and skillfully illuminates one of our most beloved sagas.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyle | 2/11/2014

    " Good book. Read it after I had watched the movie and they added a few parts that are kind of boring., but it describes some things a little more and clears up some questionable parts in the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julian | 2/1/2014

    " My favorite part was when they were chasing the assassin. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 1/27/2014

    " Better than the movie...again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennie | 1/26/2014

    " If you've seen the movie, you don't need to read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Branwen | 1/9/2014

    " This is my favorite out of all the Star Wars movies, so I was really excited to read this book! I was already familiar with R.A. Salvatore's work, since I am a fan of his Drizzt series, so reading this book felt like slipping somewhere warm, cozy, and familiar. What I really enjoyed the most about this book however, is that it is much more than a novelization which simply parrots back the dialogue from the film. The author really delves into the characters thoughts and feelings, deepening the experiance even more. I have always swooned over the forbidden relationship between Anakin and Padme, so it was wonderful to see this aspect really brought to light alot more as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Domin | 12/14/2013

    " More enjoyable than the movie (but most novelizations are, to me). Including scenes deleted from the script helps smooth out some of the movie's awkwardness, especially the Anakin/Padme romance. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Josh | 12/12/2013

    " I think that RA Salvatore is a good author overall, but this book didn't impress me that much. Possibly something to do with the fact that its film counterpart was the worst of the saga. I can't remember much, but the narration was a little better than I feel Lucas did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 11/19/2013

    " Nice novel. Certainly better than movie, however most book are better than movies. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Callie | 10/6/2013

    " I really didn't like this author's writing style. There was no flow, no emotion. Just words and facts presented clumsily. The story felt forced, and I had a hard time making myself finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Georgina | 8/20/2013

    " I think the book and the film was great! It had a lot of action, liked the atompstore and so forth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kent | 8/19/2013

    " There is a little but more to the book than the movie, but not a significant amount. It's a good read and I would put it on par with the movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 2/24/2013

    " I liked it better than the movie and better than book one. "

    " An easy, entertaining read. Essentially the film in a book. Ideal for light reading while travelling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 William M Tammick III | 7/18/2012

    " For all you haters of the new trilogy this is not his best work but it is on the same theme "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg Smith | 6/24/2012

    " Very good book. Worth a read if you want to learn more about what the movies couldn't tell you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin Xu | 6/10/2012

    " even my favorite author, R.A. Salvatore couldn't make a boring script any better "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Graham | 5/10/2012

    " This book was ok, but nowhere near the quality of Matthew Stover's Revenge Of The Sith novelization. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Schmidt | 4/12/2012

    " Pretty good adaptation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Todd Osborn | 1/9/2012

    " Like the movie version, the book was the weakest of the three prequels. It featured a lot of awkward dialogue and situations. I hoped the book would be better than the movie. ho-hum. "

    " On s'ennuie autant que dans le film, c'est dire... seule la romance passe mieux ici, elle est moins gnangnan! "
