The Clone Wars are over, but for those with reason to run from the new galactic Empire, the battle to survive has only just begun. . . .
The Jedi have been decimated in the Great Purge, and the Republic has fallen. Now the former Republic Commandos–the galaxy’s finest special forces troops, cloned from Jango Fett–find themselves on opposing sides and in very different armor. Some have deserted and fled to Mandalore with the mercenaries, renegade clone troopers, and rogue Jedi who make up Kal Skirata’ s ragtag resistance to Imperial occupation. Others–including men from Delta and Omega squads–now serve as Imperial Commandos, a black ops unit within Vader’s own 501st Legion, tasked to hunt down fugitive Jedi and clone deserters. For Darman, grieving for his Jedi wife and separated from his son, it’s an agonizing test of loyalty. But he’s not the only one who’ll be forced to test the ties of brotherhood. On Mandalore, clone deserters and the planet’s own natives, who have no love for the Jedi, will have their most cherished beliefs challenged. In the savage new galactic order, old feuds may have to be set aside to unite against a far bigger threat, and nobody can take old loyalties for granted.
Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!
Wow. Just... Wow
The title says it all. Karen Traviss has done an AMAZING job with this book, and it told me the Clone's side of the story (although I hate Jedi now) and that they have feelings, they aren't just the white guys that hold a blaster and shoot. Screw the Gears of War junk: MAKE MORE. You hear me Traviss? Seven years later, and Republic (or Imperial) Commando isn't dead! The new Clone Wars TV series is killing Star Wars, and I was so sad when I read the last Republic Commando Book. So please, oh please, oh please... Make more.
Those of you who want to read this amazing six star series, start with Star Wars Republic Commando: Hard Contact, then to Triple Zero, then True Colors, then Order 66, then Star Wars 501st. Traviss needs the money to make more, so does iTunes. All the books are available on iTunes, and it's $6.00 of well spent money per book.
No, I'm not a fake poster. If you like Star Wars: Clone Wars, the game, or just the Clone Wars Era, this your book.
If you are a true fan of star wars then you will love this book. I highly suggest reading the other books in the series prior to this one.
This is my favorite book series. Ever. Seriously. I mean it.
I loved this book. It is an amazing story although i wish Karen Traviss could finish the series. I looked up that there will be no more Imperial Commando books! On her website it says how she would of tied up the series. Like the dude below me I now dislike jedi very much except for Etain and Bardan. I love the vay that it is told from the clone's side of the story. It is a great series and book, better than the 2005 game. If you buy this you won' t be dissapointed!
