  • If we give ourselves permission to say this death justifies that one, then we truly are lost.This book takes place right smack in the middle of the Clones Wars era of the Star Wars universe.Holy shit this book was probably one of the BEST Star Wars books I have ever read I may be a tad bit biased of course, since this era happens to be my favorite, but it s really to it than just that.The story was well crafted and pretty amazing, in and of itself Unfortunately, a lot of books set within fandom [...]


  • I wonder how many ill things are done by those who believe that what they re doing is right The Clone Wars rages on Anakin and Ahsoka are sent to defend the Bothawui system from General Grievous while Obi Wan Kenobi must work with Bail Organa to retrieve information about the Sith.I Liked There is a lot to love about this book, but the first thing I will discuss is characters Karen Miller, newcomer to Star Wars novels, has perfectly nailed each and every one that she attempts The first that come [...]


  • Not a four star in the real world, but so much better than most SW books that Miller desires the credit A writer worth reading.And the story is a genuinely enjoyable tail of two regulars Obiwan Kenobi and Bail Organa share and first dangerous mission which forces them to deal with each other as other than stereotypical Jedi and politician if they are to survive, let alone succeed The cover art has absolutely nothing to do with the story Don t you hate that


  • One of the worst Star Wars novels that I have read It takes a full half of the book to even find its way to the actual story, is repetitive, hits its climax far too late and is just a tedious read start to finish.The worst part It s a good premise It could have been so much .The only way I could recommend this to you is if you are the type that would want to read some short mildly erotic and unintentionally hilarious fan fictionesque scenes between Anakin and Padme I only mention it at all becau [...]


  • Wild Space is book two in the Clone Wars series, roughly following the events of the movie release To avoid trodding the same territory as the weekly cartoon show, Karen Miller s debut Star Wars novel abandons Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano in favor of Obi Wan Kenobi The first few chapters confused me Wild Space opens immediately after the events of AOTC the Republic is cleaning up the mess, tending to the wounded, and sweeping away destroyed battle droids Anakin s just gotten his arm chopped [...]


  • All the Bail Obi Wan stuff is great if a little too long everyone else seems slightly off character from the show.


  • This story begins shortly after the battle of Geonosis featured in Attack of the Clones I read this AFTER the Gambit books, which are set later in the timeline I ll admit that I d skipped this one previously for a few reasons The blurb didn t really grab me, and the paper version is a larger format trade paperback which seemed a little pricey Also although we shouldn t judge books by their covers the blah cover makes it seem as if the book is all about clone troopers It isn t The publisher reall [...]


  • Kind of a weird book, for the Star Wars oeuvre, much Man vs Nature and Himself than epic battles versus droid armies or Sith Lords.Obi Wan grudgingly accepts to go on a vital reconnaissance mission with Bail Organa, a Republic Senator with whom he s never had many dealings and whom he views with distrust as a privileged, career politician.The two get on each others nerves immediately and amusingly, a situation exacerbated by having to share a small starship to maintain a low profile Think of it [...]


  • Yes, yes, yes I loved this book If only all Star Wars novels could be as good as this one Jedi Master Obi Wan Kenobi is lured to the mysterious planet Zigoola in Wild Space, only to walk right into a deadly Sith trap He gets company on his journey Bail Organa a politician Shudder Master Kenobi s disapproval of politicians in general is well noted, so it proves to be a fun trip from start to finish Kenobi is tested like never before and learns an important lesson in the process about attachment, [...]


  • As a Star Wars novel, Star Wars The Clone Wars Wild Space is decidedly average It takes a very long time to get started Indeed, it is around halfway through the book that Obi Wan and Bail embark on their secret mission The entire first half seems to be taken up with characters having inner monologues with themselves about how unreasonable all the other characters are, and then snapping at each other in uncharacteristic ways.Miller sets up antagonism between Obi Wan and Anakin, Obi Wan and Padm , [...]


  • Oh my goodness I love this book It just it s everything that I ever wanted in a Star Wars book Now bear in mind this review is going to be rather long so I suggest you sit back, relax, grab a snack, and enjoy the review.Now for some context For those of you who do not know, I absolutely love the Star Wars prequel trilogy I love the characters, the story, the cinematography, and even the novelizations that followed At some point during the year 2007 2008, I heard that Cartoon Network was going to [...]


  • 1 5 stars could be gayer, needs clones6 5 stars that good good Kenobi angst mmmm yes goodOn a serious note since, apparently, I do reviews for real now , this book was both terribly frustrating re no clones and wonderfully satisfying re KENOBI It takes some of my favorite things about this Star Wars time period focus on characters from the PT, give them decent characterization, much better dialogue, and some development and actual logic for their motivations in the movies and winds them about [...]


  • After this book, there is only one book I haven t read yet in the Star Wars prequels, so I guess I know the style by now The books ranged from five stars good to ten stars awesome even though there is technically none , never below five stars For me, this book is between the good and the awesome A typical Star Wars novel, yet it is engaging and I felt like I knew Star Wars better reading this book Karen Miller wrote this book well.The two sides of the exploding Clone Wars are desperate to win, b [...]


  • Ugh This book started off ok and then about 2 3 of the way through it started to majorly drag And I say this as a SW fan and a reader of the EU Points about the book in no particular order When Bail is trying to make Obi Wan take him with to the Sith planet, he comes off as really dumb and naive Yes, I understand that he doesn t know what the Sith are so he can t take them seriously, but all the readers do so to us he seems kinda stupid Most of Bail and Obi Wan s conversation is really boring an [...]


  • First let me point out that there are no clones in the whole book so the cover is terribly misleading For clones, look to any of Karen Traviss Star Wars books.I quite liked Wild Space 50 pages in I really enjoyed the post Geonosis stuff, the minutiae of how and when Anakin was knighted, how Padme and Anakin hid their marriage from Obi Wan and the Jedi Order Wild Space was full of many little details that have been left out of the older prequel books and comics It was only at the 100th page or so [...]


  • I love it when authors try something new with Star Wars books, and as such, I was a big fan of Wild Space Sure the story seemed to go on forever, but the dynamic between Bail Organa and Obi Wan Kenobi never got old, so the lengthy story was a plus, in my opinion.I really enjoyed the two guys stuck in a small ship aspect of this book, and I loved the concept of Obi Wan suffering from mental attacks the closer they got to their destination It was a refreshing switch from the high fantasy swashbuck [...]


  • This is by far one of my favorite Star Wars books But then I m a huge Obiwan fan The story itself is not so important to me than the character interaction, which is rare in a Star Wars novel Here the story is basic, but the interesting aspect is the team up of Kenobi and Bail Organa to investigate a Sith planet out in uncharted Wild Space From the get go Karen Miller makes them unlikely companions and then we watch them form a bond which explains some the missing pieces in the Star Wars films, l [...]


  • I thought this book was, in a word, fantastic It had less off what you would call classic action and was a character study of both Obi Wan Kenobi and Bail Organa The bulk of the novel is essentially a long conversation between the Jedi and the politician, one that is very illuminating as it pertains to their individual characters In particular, I found it fin to get to know Bail Organa, a character only briefly touched upon in the film world It makes his eventual fate that much heartbreaking.


  • This is really of a 3.5 but I m giving it the extra half star here forwell everything It s one part cheese, one part snark banter between Kenobi and Organa, and one part PTSD It s like fan fiction but in a good way Honestly, only my friend Nicole will get why I liked this book so much so I m not sure why I m writing this but regardless It s an enjoyable read.



  • Star Wars Legends Project 131Background Wild Space was written by Karen Miller and published in December of 2008 Miller also wrote two of the other books in this Clone Wars tie in series, and a couple dozen of her own novels.Wild Space takes place during the Clone Wars, 21 22 years before the Battle of Yavin, mostly concurrent with the events of the episodes Downfall of a Droid and Duel of the Droids from the first season of The Clone Wars TV series The main characters are Obi Wan and Bail Organ [...]


  • This book was different than I expected, but it was still good Instead of getting tons of action and big battles, this book gives you perfect character development and some of the most painful physiological torture I ve ever read The defensive but reliant relationship that grows between Bail Organa and Obi Wan wasn t something I knew I wanted before I got it Their back and forth over morals, duty, and philosophy neatly sets up the politician vs Jedi argument, but all that falls apart as they rea [...]


  • I am, I must admit, rather conflicted with this one It exists in that gray area between canon and Legends, as it is a tie in of the canon The Clone Wars TV series and, indeed, a story thread in this book is resolved in the first season of the show, given this novel takes place early in the conflict , but is considered to be Legends as it is not part of the LucasArts Storygroup so weird Anyway, Karen Miller focuses a heck of a lot on interpersonal relationships than most Star Wars authors, that [...]


  • A great novel let down by some shaky characterizationsThe Clone Wars era has always been a period of great interest for me due the vast amount of story and thematic potential Authors can tackle the ethical side of war and examine whether it is truly right to use cloned soldiers to fight, denying them free will They can address the military side of the war filling their stories with military tactics and maneuvers Some fill their stories with political intrigue and detail all the backhanded deals [...]


  • Once again I m surprised by quality that far exceeds the source material This Clone Wars companion doubles down on dialogue and character development and absolutely delivers The follow up section to AOTC was an especially enriching storyline My major critique is that the story hits a major slump towards the end.


  • Brilliantly Dark No spoilers here Again, another star wars novel that could easily be transcribed into the big screen word for word This novel covers the eventual friendship between Bail Organa and Obi Wan Kenobi Definitely a book worth owning to fill in many minor gaps within the on screen star wars canon.


  • It was an intriguing look into what happened between episode two of Star Wars and the clone wars TV show.I would recommend it to any star wars fan.I love Reading this book It is a must read book.


  • Do you want Obi Wan angst Do you want an epic sarcasm face off between Obi Wan and Bail Organa Do you want character development for Bail Organa Then this is the book for you view spoiler 10 10 would drive a lightsaber into my leg and lose my mind to Sith whisperings again hide spoiler



  • Wild Space is the second in a five book series based on and relating to The Clone Wars, the animated TV show that takes place between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith I haven t watched the show yet it s on my list , so it s hard to say how they compare, but this and the next three books are supposed to be additional stories that fit in with existing episodes without being novelizations of those episodes.The story starts off right near the end of Attack of the Clones and reveals how s [...]
