is there a clone wars novel


Yes, there are many. It really depends on which Clone wars theme you are asking about:

There are three novels based off the T.V show now; Clone Wars, Wild space and NO prisoners.

There are also about 12 (correct me if I'm wrong) about just the happenings in the war these include titles like; the republic commando series, Medstar duologue, gambit series, and many other stand alone books like Yoda: Dark Rendevouz, Shattterpoint and Labyrinth of Evil.

There are also some novels printed for a younger audience like a novelisation of the movie and various other titles.

That's cool - I own it (or will in aproximately 21 days - my birthday) as well as every Clone wars novel from the Phantom Menace to Revenge of the SIth, minus the two gambits and the T.V themed ones. I'll get it as soon as they get cheaper.

Unfortunately as a Star Wars fan I have not come across any of those books bar Heir to the Empire and The Last Command in any stores and seeing as I have not read Dark Force Rising I cannot complete the Trillogy. Of this, I am ashamed:(

If you're talking in the sense realism in the Star Wars universe, yes. The threat of the droids is amplified to a decent level (unlike in the CW show) and the fact that she includes a more real military type weapons.

The storylines are great and her writing is brilliant. The sense of life that she brings into the boys is amazing as well - it complements the game in a way that I think works well. You really start to care about what happens to the members of all of Skirata's gang.

All in all they are miraculous and it makes me depressed every time I remember her magical skills will never by seen again. She didn't even get to finish Darman's saga:(...

There are: *as I consult my Del Rey Timeline*

Revan (not yet in paperback)
Decieved
Fatal Alliance

at this point that is all, there will most likely be more published at some point.

But if you are talking about the time and not just the series there are also:

Lost tribe of the sith series (eBook only)
Knight Errant
The Darth Bane Trillogy
Red Harvest
Mandolora (comming soon)

Please note these are not in order.

It really depends what your favourite time is eg. Clone Wars, Rebellion. There are all sorts of books out there. BUt I would recomend both the Darth Bane Trillogy and the Republic Commando novels just off the top of my head. I didn't mind The Courtship of Princess Leia either... (though the idea of Leia loosing intrest in han is slightly far fetched...)

It's a group of six dreadnaughts which carries a lot of pilgrims and 18 Jedi, in search of a new settlement out of the republic in a different galaxy.
At the same time as this we are introduced to Thrawn who has three humans of his own and is learning their customs and language.

So far I'm only halfway through it. The unfortunate thing being you know some of what will happen if you have read Heir to the Empire as it makes a few refferances even though printed 15 years befor.

Seeing as the book the farthest down the timeline I've read was Showdown at Centerpoint (yes I am imbarased just now, saying that) and that was what, 25aby? and the Fate of the Jedi is stationed in 43aby I think I have a bit to catch up on :(

Yea in Star Wars Insider #134, they interviewed Dave Filoni (the guy who's in charge of The Clone Wars). They asked him about why he and George Lucas were rewriting things and he said "the EU is a well of ideas, and there's what's on screen. They don't live in the same universe. Everyone wants to think so, I know, and there is a lot of effort to make it all work, but it's pretty clear when you start looking at it that when you take ideas from the printed realm and bring it on screen, it's not always the same. They relate. There are similarities. I still enjoy a lot of those stories. I think there are a lot of great ideas. They influence you. They inspire you, which I think is the whole point of having an EU. We try hard to honor things when we can, to give nods to things, but at the end of the day here is a difference between what you see in the Star Wars films and TV series and what you see in those books". He basically said that the EU doesn't matter and his TV series is superior to it. I don't think it was always that way though because Timothy Zahn invented Coruscant in Heir to the Empire eight years before it was in The Phantom Menace so George Lucas must have been paying attention to the EU back then. I personally think its more Dave Filoni doing this than George Lucas. I really wish they had never added Ahsoka to Star Wars though, she's a really awful and annoying character.

Very good point. Filoni is the one who is bringing shame to TCW and its false points. I like how the novels delve deep into what isn't in the movies, but I don't like how TCW is taking that and ripping it off and passing it off as their own. George Lucas is the one responsible for Episode I-VI, the original movies, the ones we love. I'm not saying Filoni is ruining Star Wars, he just needs to come up with his own ideas, and not ruin the novels that lots of authors took so much time to write.

True, although I think that Filoni takes a lot of the blame for that one.

I agree. Filoni's the director of The Clone Wars so he's probably making a lot of the decisions about it. I just don't really like him because he's ignoring the adult fans of Star Wars and the EU.

Yeah, and frankly the EU is the best part of Star Wars.

It is! All the main characters get fleshed out and tons of new characters are added to the Star Wars story. It's awesome! Maybe Filoni never gets around to reading the EU books.

I agree! I also think that the official Clone Wars comics are so much better than every TCW episode I've seen so far. I can only reccomend them!

They are! Maybe Filoni should ask the authors of those comic books for ideas.

This is George Lucas we're talkin about. He doesn't give a rat's fart about the EU. Just look at The Clone Wars tv show.

It might just be the Lucas Arts branch of the company. But I'm sure I heard that Lucas was retiring and being replaced by his heir.

Yes! They should really put Oppo Rancisis in an episode!

The problem would be, as with most things, they would make him some weird guy inspired by something rediculous... :(

Does anyone know the Novel 'Darth Plagueis'?
I'm not sure if it is already out, but if so, is it good?


It's very very good. It basically ties in everything that happens in Episode One. It's amazing how much Sidious and Plagueis are involved.

Actually, I think he died before the Clone Wars.

BTW Could you judge all of the remaining Athalon entires?

In episode II he was still there and he died in the Clone Wars, when he was killed by Sora Bulq.

Of course. My mistake. I was thinking of Yarriel Poof.

My all time favorites are the Boba Fett novels.
I've never heard of those. I know I should have because I'm the biggest Boba Fett fan I know!

Yeah, it has different stories from both before the Republic was formed and after the Empire fell, and along the way there are bio's on some of the most important commanders and soldiers, and info on some of the weapons used in different battles. It even shows the evolution of the lightsaber! In short, yes, it is a GREAT book.
