    You watch people in this kind of fireand you see what they re really made of On the swampy world of Drongar, a fierce battle ensues between Republic and Separatists over bota, a plant that has amazing healing qualities for humans On this outpost, a team of top doctors and nurses work to save the lives of soldiers and keep themselves alive as well.I Liked The only movie character you will find in this book is the Jedi, Barris Offee Now some people might be turned off by this fact But giv You watch people in this kind of fireand you see what they re really made of On the swampy world of Drongar, a fierce battle ensues between Republic and Separatists over bota, a plant that has amazing healing qualities for humans On this outpost, a team of top doctors and nurses work to save the lives of soldiers and keep themselves alive as well.I Liked The only movie character you will find in this book is the Jedi, Barris Offee Now some people might be turned off by this fact But given how well done these every beings are done, I think theythan deserve a second chance.My particular favorite characters are Den Dhur, the Sullustan reporter, Barris Offee, the Jedi Padawan, and Zan, the Zabrak doctor who is also a music aficionado I love how Den Dhur is so cynical, but at the very end, he goes out of his way to rescue Zan s beloved musical instrument, risking his own hide, something he said he would never do I also love how he is not a sexy Twi Lek, a stupid Weequay or a thieving Rodian, but a Sullustan and not like Nien Nunb from Return of the Jedi, either Barris has always been one of my favorites Here, I love how childish she can come across, causing Phow Ji to trip and generally not liking him It shows the Jedi have emotions and that she isn t perfect Lastly, Zan Zan is so tender hearted, and while his affinity to music could be construed as a cliche, I can t help but like it.Although these are my favorite characters, the other characters are pretty well written Jos Vondar has this interesting debate within himself, whether to abandon his beliefs for his love of Tolk, or to reject her His ultimate choice comes at a perfect time We also see the reappearance of I FYQ, the droid with humor, and my favorite from the first Coruscant Nights book, Kaird of Nediji.In case you haven t heard this already, this book has the feel of M A S H I really liked this change of pace from your typical action adventure fluffy novel that has become the trademark of Star Wars I appreciate the change in feel, in genre almost in this novel It really stands out And while it is not your typical action novel that many were are complaining are missing from the Clone Wars era novels, I think it serves its purpose well, showing a small battle aren t all the battles ultimately small, with Jedi stretched all over the galaxy on a dusty world in the midst of a medical camp.I also thought it was an interesting move to have one of our bad guys end up being a good guy , meaning that Admiral Bleyd was working with Filbar the Hutt to make money off stolen bota It tends that if someone is on the Republic or Rebel s side, they are automatically painted as good This book avoids that stereotype nicely.I Didn t Like I really don t have a lot to complain about It was challenging keeping track of characters What happened to Phow Ji was kinda confusing.Dialogue Sexual Situations Violence Star Wars invented though I think I caught a heck.Jos considers a liaison with Tolk and recollects other previous liaisons.A lot of scenes occur in an OR, so be wary for blood and guts Also, there are battles, evacuations, and several characters die at the end.Overall One word Enjoyable It s nice to read a niche story about characters we don t see in the movies We have no idea what happens to them, so when it does, we are appropriately surprised, happy, sad, or angry I also loved seeing recurring characters, such as I Five and Kaird I always appreciate this kind of continuity.Of course, some people may bemoan the lack of Clone Wars action It is good to keep that in mind when considering this novel But if you like good characters and enjoyed watching M A S H, then I suggest you read this book You won t regret it

    War, Jos thought What was it good for Certainly not the arts He wondered how many other talents like Zan were being squandered in battles across the galaxy I hate this war, he said I hate everything about it What kind of people are we that such things can go on and nobody is outraged What does that say about us Nobody had an answet to that Power wants to be used It must be kept under constant vigil, else it will seduce and corrupt you 3.5 Stars This is my first foray into the War, Jos thought What was it good for Certainly not the arts He wondered how many other talents like Zan were being squandered in battles across the galaxy I hate this war, he said I hate everything about it What kind of people are we that such things can go on and nobody is outraged What does that say about us Nobody had an answet to that Power wants to be used It must be kept under constant vigil, else it will seduce and corrupt you 3.5 Stars This is my first foray into the Expanded Universe and being on a high after having seen The Force Awakens, I asked my person of reference for a recommendation for a book with a female protagonist He lent me the MedStar duology I will say that it took me some googling and slow reading to a memorise all the names b making sense of all the unexplained abbreviations and c being able to picture all the different sentient beings that weren t described too much.MILD SPOILERS Jedi Padawan Barriss Offee was great, I really enjoyed reading about her and the scene between her and Phow Ji was in my opinion very representative for feminism in general I liked the main cast and its diversity and found almost all the storylines engaging and interesting It was great to have a set of characters without political tasks or offices, the medical aspect was new and refreshing and showed a side of thr Clone Wars I wasn t familiar with I appreciated the discussions about humanity in clones and droids, it s something that stays relevant throughout the entire saga It was good to see the Clone Wars and war in general being criticized, having its ugly, brutal and senseless side exposed Now for the parts I didn t enjoy as much, which will be spoiler laden The so called love story was awful I don t like Jos Vondar in general, he seems very full of himself and egocentric In addition to that, Tolk is such a terrible character She s such an absolute stereotypical woman She s pretty and very sensible to the feelings of others Other than that she has no function, except being enticing aka objectified I also hate the way Vondar is all I want a real relationship, nothing short lived, etc Just so annoying and judgemental and ugh And when he criticises Tolk for tormenting him Yes, it d not like she s an individual who can act on her own feelings, she s only doing it for his sake So Dumb Other than Barriss Offee and Tolk le Trene and if you like the mentioned Master Luminara Unduli there s no female characters And yes, I know the clones are obviously all male, but none of the bartenders, other staff, etc are female.However I liked the plots and I ll definitely read the second one, if only to find out who the spy is A real shame that they killed off the most likeable character in the cast, though

    First off, I am glad that this book exists That said, I was really hoping forout of this novel, as someone who loves both Star Wars and M A S H, but it failed to deliver any additional depth on either subject Barris s healing powers are never deeply explored, and the subject of war is bad, clones are people is done much better in Republic Commando and the Clone Wars series Barris s character was not particularly developed either, and the fact she is a padawan hoping to become a master First off, I am glad that this book exists That said, I was really hoping forout of this novel, as someone who loves both Star Wars and M A S H, but it failed to deliver any additional depth on either subject Barris s healing powers are never deeply explored, and the subject of war is bad, clones are people is done much better in Republic Commando and the Clone Wars series Barris s character was not particularly developed either, and the fact she is a padawan hoping to become a master feels tacked on rather than a part of who she was

    See It can be done Fan fiction can be engaging and fun to read.Reaves and Perry had the advantage of not dealing with main SW icons, but they assembled a fun cast and told their storycomplete with a MASH consistent anti war moral.If anything my criticism would be that the the tension was not raised and sustained The story was dotted with small crises, but not a crescendo of tension.Maybe a 3.5.

    I don t dislike this book, it s just not terribly good Several of the characters are pretty memorable and at least one plot point was a surprise to me It s a very different flavor than most Star Wars books, especially if you re used to Zahn It was not bad to read, but I looked up and was almost done and was sort of like wait, what was the point of this books It was like t hadn t even started yet Major plot points aren t addressed, actually none of the points are concluded or go beyond wh I don t dislike this book, it s just not terribly good Several of the characters are pretty memorable and at least one plot point was a surprise to me It s a very different flavor than most Star Wars books, especially if you re used to Zahn It was not bad to read, but I looked up and was almost done and was sort of like wait, what was the point of this books It was like t hadn t even started yet Major plot points aren t addressed, actually none of the points are concluded or go beyond what seem to be the opening stages There isn t enough foreshadowing or tension to even lead into a sequel which thankful it does have I am hoping things wrap up in that one as I don t believe there is a third one Easy to pick up, especially bc of theunique perspective medical doctors patching up clone troops in a war zone , but don t stress if you miss it
