Karen Miller is a good writer, and she does well in fleshing out the ordinary lives of the hardscrabble citizens of Torbel on the planet Lanteeb as Our Heroes limp into their lives right after escaping the Seps by the skin of their Jedi teeth. You really feel empathy for their plight, and it's easy to understand why people living in such straights would have an innate suspicion and hostility toward the legendarily aloof Jedi who have, up to this point, never done a thing to help them. The tragedy of the Force-sensitive child Gretti that Obi-Wan befriends, doomed to lead a mundane life among the prosaic miners as she is too old to enter the Temple and become a true Jedi, just for one example, is beautifully and heart-rendingly described.

Where this book falls down a bit, for me, is the somewhat sparse descriptions of the fight and actions sequences. This is Star Wars, after all, and I for one would've liked to have heard Mr. Gurner narrate some nifty Jedi moves over the always-excellent SFX of these titles.

One pet peeve: Big Baddie Lok Durd's fate is not discussed after he flees, which I felt was a pretty big loose end after his continuously appalling behaviour.

On the whole, a good listen and a pretty solid entry into the Clone Wars legends...
