The turning point for the entire Star Wars saga is at handAfter 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.

The audio version came with all sorts of special sound effects and the like. As a writer, I can imagine h...

Thus begins the end of the Republic...and the rise of the Empire.I Liked:THIS is what the prequels should have been. THIS is w...
The movie is quite good but this novel is not. Nothing of much important is added by it. You can see the movie and leave the book untouched. That's the problem with some novel tie-in.I would reccomend to anyone except the die-hard fans.
"This is what it feels like to be Anakin Skywalker." I wish he hadn't felt the need to repeat that throughout the book. I got it the first time, okay? I read this book after having seen the movie, and I was a little disappointed.The first battle of the movie, where they rescue Chancellor Palpatin...
this book was incredible. Mr Stover should be writing theologicalphilosophical books instead of pulp fiction. This shows the underlying emotions that are swirling thru everyone. I was saddened yet the hope at the end was just incredible. Incredible is a good word for this book.
