Publisher's Summary

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 ubiquitous and insatiably curious Padawan, by bringing her along on a routine three-day shakedown cruise aboard Captain Gilad Pellaeon's newly refitted assault ship. But the training run becomes an active and dangerous rescue mission when Republic undercover Agent Hallena Devis goes missing in the middle of a Separatist invasion.

Dispatched to a distant world to aid a local dictator facing a revolution, Hallena finds herself surrounded by angry freedom fighters and questioning the Republic's methods and motives. Summoned to rescue the missing operative who is also his secret love, Pellaeon, sworn to protect the Republic over all, is torn between duty and desire. And Ahsoka, sent in with Rex and six untested clone troopers to extract Hallena, encounters a new and different Jedi philosophy, which shakes the foundation of her upbringing to the core. As danger and intrigue intensify, the loyalties and convictions of all involved will be tested.

Another full length and it was enjoyable

i am normally not a fan of This authors work in the star wars arena. how ever her take on Palleon was really good and well worth the listen he is a character we see through the whole novel series i think he just died in one of the newer books, its nice to see. i enjoyed this one a lot and has changed my mind about this author i thought the narrator did a fine job.

Intriguing Plot and a great read.

Karen Traviss certainly has an interesting take on the Jedi Council, and the code it follows. The story is quite compelling, and even romantic in it's own way. She deftly hints at the direction of Skywalker's future while not overpowering the story with it.

While introducing a new sect in the Order I feel she opens up possibilities for authors to explore the EU without being trapped into the need for Jedi vs. Sith conflict. But also potentially interesting Jedi vs. Jedi conflict.

Wishing this was longer

What made the experience of listening to Star Wars the most enjoyable?

The multi-emotional circumstances brought to the surface during this book made it more of a philosophical read than just lightsabers and snarky remarks

Relationships

This book ultimately answered questions many had about the Jedi and their issues with attachment. It was the most illuminating book yet.

Great story, Hippie Jedi! who'da thought it! really new to the off stories and have immersed myself into the time line, but so far the clone wars series, runs a close to the Darth Bane series, and the Republic Commando series! where is this stuff in the movies...boo to you lucas/Disney!

Excellent book that addresses a key point

I'm a big fan of the Star Wars books. This is the first one I've read that provides a much needed critique of the Jedi Council's view on attachment.

Karen Traviss does it again

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, Karen Traviss once again crafts a quality story using primarily second tier and unexplored characters. Jeff Gurner has an admirable performance, his accents and inflections bringing depth to each character.

What other book might you compare Star Wars to and why?

Star Wars: Darth Plagueis. Both delve into the under-explored philosophical and political worlds in ways that are entertaining and leave you satisfied instead of bored.

Which character – as performed by Jeff Gurner – was your favorite?

Djinn Altis and Gilad Pelleaon. Jeff brings life to these two character through consistent voice work, that evokes the emotions experienced by them through out the story. Jeff also does a good job on the Maori accent used by the clones, making his reading of them similar to the animated television series.

Any additional comments?

The sound effects and music were a nice compliment to the book and story and only added to the ambiance, instead of intruding on the story like they are wont to do.

No prisoners - not bad at all!

Star Wars The Clone Wars No Prisoners is getting better towards the end of the novel. It offers a very well written analysis of Anakin's dilemma with his attachment and marriage to Padme. Jedi master Altus is my favourite character and a copy of Qui Gon Jin. It gives a new spectrum of the jedi order and not only the dogmatic side of the orthodox Yoda-party.
The narrator is not a Mark Thompson but he is better than the others.
Music and sound effects are up to date and well balanced.
The story is not at all like masterpieces such as The Old Republic Revan or like Fate of the Jedi but absolutely worth your time.
The movie tagline would go as folows: "War is always wrong".
Enjoy!

Excellent Star Wars tale with many superlatives!!

This audiobook was fantastic and exciting to listen to. It was gripping with suspense and drama. It was magnificently composed by Karen Traviss and narrated in a splendid manner by Jeff Gurner. The sound effects were top notch.
This audiobook is a must for Star Wars fans.
The idea of Jedi with attachments is explored in this story. It all sums up to be a compelling Star Wars story which is not to be missed.

One of the best Star Wars books

I'm usually quite critical of Star Wars material as I love this franchise so much, but for this book there's really nothing to complain about!

It gives us a whole new perspective on the Jedi order. It presents a different view of the force and introduces some new and very interesting abilities that only a select few Jedi have.
It also focuses on the clones quite a lot. It really makes you care about every single clone introduced in the book. They get a lot of time to shine and develop.

The action is pretty interesting as well. There's spies, a revolution against tyranny, clones fighting against overwhelming odds, space battles and Jedi doing what Jedi do.

Even Jeff Gurner's narration shines in this one. There are more new characters than old ones, so there aren't that many voices for him to try and imitate. He's a great narrator on this one. I also like the fact that he gives the clones slightly different voices. Even if they sound nothing like the clones wars, you can really tell the young clones apart from their veteran brothers.

Get this book, you won't regret it!

Amazing story in the midst of the clone wars

As a fan of the clone wars TV series, listening to this audio book was a thrill, especially as the series have now ended. I can only imagine how this would have added to the story.

Jeff Gurner reading is amazing and really gives the characters justice.

The only downside of this may be the background soundtracks, sometimes coming through too loudly and repetitive.

Awful writing great performance

What a bait and switch of a book. Pretends to be about the clone wars but it's actually about the rule of commitment among jedi. All anyone thinks about is love and romance and creates characters and situations to harp on about the Jedi no commitment rule ad nauseum.

Highly recommend you skip this and get a book where the characters actually grow or the author actually decides to say something profound.
