READ & DOWNLOAD ↠ No Prisoners Star Wars The Clone Wars The Clone Wars rage on As insurgent Separatists fight furiously to wrest control of the galaxy from the Republic Supreme Chancellor Palpatine cunningly manipulates both sides for his own sinister purposes Torrent Company’s Captain Rex agrees to temporarily relieve Anakin Skywalker of Ahsoka his ubiuitous–and insatiably curious–Padawan by bringing her along on a routine three day shakedown cruise aboard Capta. The choice is always with us demanding to be made with every action we take even in peacetime Anakin has sent Ahsoka with Captain Rex as the two observe the testing of a new ship the Leveller commanded by Gilad Pellaeon But things go awry when Hallena Devis a Republic spy and Pellaeon s lover is captured on FathI LikedThere is uite a bit to like about this little novel One of the things that really stood out to me was the characters I enjoyed seeing our old friends Gil Pellaeon and Callista Masana I really liked how Traviss added a love interest for Pellaeon and a black woman to boot but she really outdoes herself with Callista a character I ve never been particularly fond of Traviss does Callista justice and than that alludes to Callista s future bonding with the Eye of Palpatine and losing her ability to touch the Force Very adept and neatly done as if on purpose Traviss also is than capable of writing Rex of course she really can t err in writing from a cloneMando and even surprisingly Anakin Even Ahsoka is far less annoying than I ve seen herTraviss gets a chance to fix the issue of Jedi marrying and having relationships as first revealed in Children of the Jedi when Callista reveals she dated Geith I actually don t mind the concept of Jedi than just those at the Temple though I continually wonder how the Lost Twenty fits into that picture not that Altis was specified as a Lost Twenty Altis Jedi sect is interesting and I would love to learn about them Though I can t imagine one guy not that old has trained thousands of students Is he meaning thousands of Force sensitives or thousands of beings in generalAlso kudos to Traviss for having Pellaeon make Ahsoka dress in decent clothes I honestly have no idea why the Jedi allow her to dress so scantily as no one except Aalya another sex object does What happened to the Jedi robes When could apprentices choose what to wearTraviss forte has always been writing action and military combat also clones and Mandos Here she does a superb job of detailing life on a starship something gravely missing from most Star Wars EU a hostage situation and even a spook mission It s obvious she s knowledgeable and has a firm grasp on what she s talking about and if not she does excellent research as with the battle woundsI was impressed with the conclusions Several people are given the choice to think and ponder over the uestions they were posed or to ignore them Some like Rex realize that pondering over the uestions doesn t do anything but weigh you down Others like Anakin want to refuse to acknowledge there is a problem And still others such as Hallena are seeking out the truth I Didn t LikeThis is certainly not the worse that Traviss has written but I felt it was a little less than perfect starting with the charactersFrom the onset I was a little shocked at the portrayal of Captain Gilad Pellaeon It s not that he s portrayed as hugely out of character like an idiot or corrupt or something along those lines I just felt that he was off like a jolly good English sea captain who occasionally bucks protocol he doesn t like such as being on a first name basis with Rex while adhering to others proper uniforms on officers such as Ahsoka I guess this comes off as a shock since I recently finished Zahn s Hand of Thrawn Duology in which Pellaeon plays a large part and comes off as very formal very by the book very proper And yes I understand that Pellaeon is younger here but I still have a hard time picturing him changing so drastically from cheerio captain to skeptical hesitant uestioning captain in Heir to the EmpireI was also never fond of Hallena I m sorry she just felt too incompetent too hesitant too uestioning She goes to JanFathal utterly fails and needs to be rescued causing two clones to lose their lives and for everyone most of whom barely know the guys to angst about it constantly One could argue that was the whole point that she accomplished nothing and caused the death of these two men but I had a hard time buying she was such a good agent given how uickly she was apprehended and how disillusioned she was so uickly And her conclusionugh how clich My second biggest complaint is that Traviss once again has to make a big argument out of something Here as elsewhere she makes sure to put a load on the comments about how clones are humans how they are being used by the bad Jedi lead by cold cruel heartless Yodayada yada yada Been there done that got the shirt As if that weren t bad enough she also makes sure to really debate the whole attachment issue sometimes awkwardly inserting it into conversation just so the Jedi philosophy of non attachment can be assailed such as when Ahsoka and the clones talk about sex in the most forced uncomfortable conversation ever or Callista and Ahsoka talk about relationships just before a big battle I don t have a problem with discussing clones humanity or attachment but let s not go overboard and Traviss has said than enough about the clone humanity thing in my opinion and please let s be a wee bit subtle I mean this is a really cool issue one that would be very interesting but honestly Traviss drives it into the dirt everyone notices the tension between Altis Jedi and Ahsoka everyone wants to ask about details Ahsoka spends 90% of the book gawking at Callista as if she has a second head etc and makes it boring Although I will admit I liked how Altis and Anakin spoke about it at the endThen there was the whole thing about Pellaeon and Devis secret relationship As I read that I just wonderedwhy Why couldn t they come out and admit their relationship Why was it forbidden at nearly the same level as Anakin and Padme s I know Anakin and Padme s was weird particularly in the movie when Padme who should have had zero restrictions protests it though the book does clarify this but the excuse about the Republic wanting sueaky clean officers is just stupid The Republic needs officers and they aren t going to get all picky on who they happen to be dating especially if it means the difference between winning and losing And I really didn t sense much chemistry between the two They felt very stiff and formal even when off duty Traviss had to tell us they were in love I would never have gotten it from the way they acted towards or around each other particularly not with the way that the book ends which does nothing to cement their true love to each otherIt is rare for me to be confused over Traviss writing or what is going on but in this book I encountered that feeling freuently I was constantly rereading sentences trying to figure out what the characters were joking about or referring to Also there were several battle seuences such as Pellaeon rescuing Anakin that were badly described and lost me completelyI had read somewhere how sexist this book was and I am going to have to second that Callista gets slapped on her rear in public as a supposed display of affection Traviss if you want to show that Geith and Callista are in love why not have them hold hands or kiss each other s cheek Hallena is considered a commodore solely because she s Pellaeon s sueeze and not because she is an esteemed Republic agent Hallena also speaks about giving up her job and joining Pellaeon on his ship nowhere does Pellaeon offer to make the same sacrifice nor do they both agree to give up their jobs for something else And Padme does the good house wife thing in making coffee packing bags and dishing gossip UghAnother minor complaint I have is going to sound very strange Normally I love it when authors bring a bit of realism to Star Wars family life divorce outings at the park you get the drill Here when Traviss does it it almost feels over board From Padme wearing a beauty mask to making coffee oops I mean caf to arguing with a teenager over her clothing choices to likening a revolt to a bargain sale at a mall it just feels out of place or maybe a bit tooobviousDialogueSexual SituationsViolencePellaeon goes out of character and swears using kriff Geith and Callista are lovers Geith whacks Callista on the rear in a supposedly affectionate pat in public Pellaeon and Hallena are lovers as wellHallena is captured as she is rescued at least two clones dieOverallIf I could think of one word to describe this book it would probably be disappointing It s certainly not horrible but I felt it was lacking that it didn t live up to Traviss other works particularly her novelization of the Clone Wars movie Traviss writes some characters brilliantly and shows her expertise in military battles but she flounders by relying too hard heavy handed messages that just ruins the pacing and flow And with a price tag of 16 dollars at most places for a mere 257 pages it s hard to justify a purchase

Honestlyout of all the Star Wars The Clone Wars books in this series this one was definitely the weakest I still liked the book just not as much as the Wild Space Stealth and Siege It just doesn t seem as memorable as the other books in this series I liked how this book developed the other factions of the Jedi Order The action was written very well and kept things from going stale Also the portrayal of the main characters was spot on which is to be expected given that this series in general has done a great job of doing that Hell they even bring back certain characters from the EU into thiswhich was really cool to see Additionally the writing in general was well done Environments were described clearly and never once got confusing or out of place I also liked that Jeff Gurner narrated the audiobook like he did with the other installmentshe is probably the best audio narrator I have heard in sometime And finally the pacing was pretty solid as wellHowever I do feel that the overall narrative feels off here for some reason The story while generally enjoyable didn t really blow me away I find some of the novel really forgettable For example I forget the name of some of the characters especially the ones made specifically for this book with the planet that the whole book takes place on and who the main antagonist was I just feel that this book wasn t as epic as it wanted to beFinal ScoreI give this book a solid 335 stars a good but not great entry
