Planet by planet, darkness creeps across the galaxy. Among warriors and generals, among ordinary beings living in far-flung worlds, the fear will not go away: We are losing this war. . . .

Anakin Skywalker feels it, too. The Separatist Alliance, with ruthlessness and treachery, is beating the Republic to every strategic target. But after a costly clash with General Grievou

“No matter how bleak things got, or how tempted they were to despair, light would prevail over darkness”
The Clone Wars rages on and Obi-Wan and Anakin continue to lead the front-line assaults against the Separatist. But information is coming in of an operation on Lanteeb. Under the nose of Chancellor Palpatine, Bail Organa and Master Yoda send Obi-Wan and Anakin to investigate.

Well, this was unique. I've read cover blurbs that give away the set up of the book, but never before have I read one, as Stealth has, which gave away the entire plot. Granted, this book was just a four hundred page setup for the second book of the series, but you'd think they'd leave the reader some suspense.

Okay story and writing. Tired of the repetitious Anakin and Obi-Wan arguments. Glad to see Ahsoka growing. Hard to believe only Bail Organa sees Anakin and Padme's relationship, but that's

Karen Miller’s high regard and curiosity concerning Obi-Wan Kenobi is quite charming. In her second Star Wars book, Clone Wars Gambit: Stealth, every character has a lot to shoulder in the war, even (and especially) Obi-Wan.

Ahsoka has more to consider as Anakin’s Padawan than the teachings of the Jedi Order. She cares for his well-being and has learned how to read her Master’s emotions to help herself navigate and deal with his temperament. Anakin struggles with the responsibilities of being the

May the Fourth be with you! It’s unfortunate that the Ahsoka Tano character (Anakin’s Padawan) was ever created, but that isn’t Miller’s fault. Luckily, Ahsoka isn’t in the novel too much. I really liked Miller’s first SW novel, Wild Space, but felt the first third of the book didn’t need to be there. It’s the same in this case: the scene on the ship sets up only part of the plot, and is longer than necessary. The rest of the story follows Anakin and Obi-Wan as they investigate a hunch by Bail O ...more

I am enjoying how Miller fleshes out the character of Obi Wan. Also, how she (and other authors) flesh out Anakin's fall to the Dark Side. In this book you see the attachments and emotions that drive that fall. If you are a Star Wars dork like I am, this is a great read.
Molly
I love star wars books and this was no exception! The relationship between Anakin and Obi-Wan is always fun to follow.
Patrickderaaff
A fine book about friendship.

Karen Miller did another excellent job. A secret mission finds Anakin and Obi-Wan together during the Clone Wars, but now as equals instead of Master and Padawan. A fact Obi-Wan sometimes forgets, which is understandable. Ahsoka is not along for the ride, so the dynamic of Anakin and Obi-Wan’s friends/brother relationship has proper time to shine. And it does!

Karen Miller is excellent at writing Star Wars characters, not just Anakin and Obi-Wan, but also Padmé, Bai

The annoyance at all the colons necessary for the title of this book pretty much sums up how I feel about the book itself: ambivalent. There's an interesting story line, some thought provoking interactions between Anakin and Obi-Wan, some good getting into each of these main characters' heads, and even some nice little turns of phrase in describing stuff that makes me think "that was pretty."

There's also a whole lot of the 1st half of this book that seems to have no bearing on the second half. W

Ernest
A tie-in book to the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series, this book takes Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi to a remote planet to investigate why the Separatist Alliance would be interested in such a place and whether thoughts of a bioweapon are true. The first two-thirds of the book were solid, if largely unremarkable. The last third of the book significantly picked up and it was there that Miller was able to pick up the pace and really move things along. Throughout the book, the char ...more

Obi Wan and Anakin are still fighting big battles in the clone wars. After one of these they are sent on a stealth mission to try and find the separatists latest weapon. Please note that this novel ends on a cliffhanger. The relationship between Obi Wan and Anakin is really well written, and the author has caught their characters. A good read.
Jim
Great undercover Jedi story, setting up some great moments of Anakin and Obi-Wan having to act from the shadows and the clear philosophical conundrums that places these two Jedi in. One of the best written villains in EU Clone Wars novelizations. Karen Miller deserves a place among the great SW serial novelists!
Jenny McD.
I was very close to giving this book at 4 star review but the fact that it was a cliff hanger, made me mad and I knocked it down to 3. The relationships of Obi-wan and Anakin are portrayed really well. I enjoy reading anything about Anakin especially when we learn more deeply into his thoughts. (he still has major ex-Slave issues)
Another highlight was Bail Organa has a big role in this book and I enjoyed reading about Leia's adoptive father.
I like the Clone War series. Ashoka is not my favorite

The Anakin/Obi-Wan stuff was great ; all of the other stuff with the exception of a few parts involving Palpatine seemed like pointless filler. Good story and a good cliffhanger muddled by some unnecessary additions

[3 and 1/2 stars]
A very solid Star Wars novel (is it too heretical to say that I find that the books set during the Clone Wars period tend to capture the Star Wars feel better than most other Star Wars books?). It hits the right notes in the complicated Anakin/Obi-Wan relationship, matures Ahsoka, gives Padme and Bail things to do while deepening their relationship with the protagonists, and shows us in no uncertain terms how the Jedi are being beaten down and reforged. I don't mind the cliffhan

Started off decent, but it just got worse and worse. Sort an M.O. for Miller. I was going for a three overall, but then she threw in one of her sequel bate endings. The book is not good enough to warrant such a sequel! And what's up with the fatal disease via poisonous fish?! What a cop out for a Jedi Master! More effort please. Not to mention, a lot her plotlines seem to be ripped straight from the show, movies, or other novels. I will never buy another Miller book, and I'm iffy on even checki

An EU book that takes place during the Clone Wars. This book had its good and bad parts. I thought the author did a good job with the interaction between the two main characters. Also, I enjoyed the examples of Anakin's progression to the dark side. The bad part of this novel is that it was agonizingly slow. There was a dinner scene with light talk that took 5 pages. Also, this book just stopped and nothing was concluded. This is the first of a duology but there should have been some conclusion ...more
Nikki
This is the first Star Wars novel I've ever read (well, this and the novelization of AotC which I read when I was a kid) so I have no grounds for comparison, but I really enjoyed it. It's a little daunting how much extended universe books there are, but since I grew up with the prequel trilogy I thought it'd be a good idea to start with books that take place in that era. I will probably always prefer the movies, but the books do allow you to get a little deeper under the characters' skins.
Patrick
This is fun. Karen Miller isn't my favorite Star Wars author because she tends to be a little loosey-goosey, tell-don't-show with characterization. But these two novels were good and I liked the variety of characters. I like getting Sidious and the dark characters' points of view along with the good.

I like the continuing Clone Wars discussion/critique of compassion vs. Jedi detachment, right for the individual vs. right for the whole.

Again great weekend read.
Jenny
This is story from the Clone Wars...Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi end up going undercover on the planet of Lanteeb in order to investigate a possible bioweapon. I enjoyed reading more about the character make-up of both of these characters. Plus the book reflects how powerful the Jedis were during this time period.
Jessie
Ugh...I know it's mostly my fault that this took so long to read, because really there's not enough substance to it to make it last this long normally. The plot is simplistic and I'm so tired of the Jedis debating their place in politics.
Zxielle
I loved the theme of this book--the search for yet another superweapon and the effects of this work on those scientists doing it. The story moves quickly and is enjoyable to read. I recommend it!
Joey
It started out really well then ended in a cliff hanger. I'm not a big fan of books that are cliff hangers, especially if I don't know they are going to be.
Sharla
This book was entertaining, with a cliffhanger to boot, but I won't be able to remember which plot belongs with which book of this series in a few days!
Jean-francois Boivin
the most boring book (not only Star Wars books) I have ever read. its waaay too long, and it's only part 1 or 2! If I could give 1/2 star I would
Amanda
Thoroughly enjoying Miller's Star Wars novel. She just gets the characters. Very enjoyable and easy reads.
Hannah
Full of adventure, dry humor, new heroes and returning villians, this story is one readers will never forget.
Aaron
Way to many slow points, in which people constantly talk about how there are no slow points in the war.
