In 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 invasionDispatched to a distant world to aid a local dictator facing a revolution Hallena finds herself surrounded by angry freedom fighters and uestioning the Republic’s methods–and motives Summoned to. My first thought setting out to write the review for this book is that now is an appropriate moment for a callback to my last review the last years of EU publishing began to offer material that felt rushed churned out short at 250 pages and somehow still padded with filler and thinly sketched No Prisoners would be a classic example of what I was talking about I feel like the brief for this book might ve gone something like this Remember Nomi Sunrider Remember Nejaa Halcyon and Callista Well George s preuels have stuffed that up Go fix itI get the distinct impression that this book exists purely to retcon the problem of pre existing Jedi families before the rise of the Empire and that this was the primary focus when writing it and not what is supposed to be the main plot of rescuing a stranded Republic Intelligence agent Gilad Pellaeon got thrown in there for reader recognition and Traviss decided to make the Intel agent his lover to tie in with the overall theme of relationships And that s kind of a problem that permeates and brings down almost every aspect of the bookFor one the supposed main plot felt very dull and pedestrian and could barely hold my attention Nothing of major import or conseuences happens in it Hallena comes off as incompetent because the need to rescue her is contrived and our protagonists only have to turn back in order to string out the story and have something to do Note how the mis jump of the Leveller is down to an accident not an outside threat or insider sabotage because that s the easiest way to draw things out and then resolve them uickly when needed rather than the time and effort it would take to flesh out a complex plotline of confrontation or betrayal If you need a temporary setback in your book create an unconnected accident or make your protagonists do something stupid That way when you need your heroes to get a win you can just fix the technical fault or have your main characters stop playing dumb You won t have to deal with the difficulties of setting up and resolving a devastating betrayal or overwhelming opposing forces The negative of this is that the protagonists failures seem silly and unexciting while their successes come too easilySo it s obvious that the main plot of No Prisoners isn t really the main plot It has no lasting impact on the universe or the protagonists and the only characters who die are those who we freshly meet in this book and are barely told anything about It shouldn t come as a surprise that I was bored with this But what about the retcon which is secretly the reason this book exists at all Yeah that kind of sucks too The book is trying so hard to pretend that it stands on its own merits that it focuses most of its time on the main plot and avoids allowing its protagonists to have a proper discussion about whether Jedi and relationships are a good idea or confronting that explosive material in any direct way This is not explored in nearly the degree of depth that it ought to have been And the retcon in the end is of course that Djinn Altis Jedi are an offshoot sect This was completely predictable and exactly what I expected How else to explain Lucas vision of the preuels and Callista s portrait of academies scattered throughout the galaxy where romance was a non issue You couldn t just have one of them be wrong even though Lucas preuels bear no resemblance to the lawless frontier setting of the Clone Wars described by many characters in the Expanded Universe and the fact that most people seem to have forgotten the Jedi and it s clearly been 40 years or not 19 since the Empire s rise and the romance rule seems to have no good reason for existing You couldn t even do something interesting with this retcon such as have Altis people and the Jedi Order in a private war with each other believing the others to be dark siders or have Callista be a liar about either the group she was a part of or what the rules were That would ve at least brought some conflict and tension to the story Anakin of course buries his head in the sand when forced to think about this issue so directly because we can t have him falling to the dark side ahead of timeThere s other problems too Pellaeon s appearance here makes no sense with his established history of having joined the Imperial Navy during the days of the Empire as an earnestly well meaning if na ve young man or his utter lack of familiarity with Jedi when serving under Thrawn He s thrown in purely for fan service but behaves entirely out of character the whole time like a jolly uncle than the Pellaeon we know Word of advice for writers in a popular franchise it isn t fan service if you warp the character beyond recognition That only makes fans annoyed Most of the characters are completely forgettable displayed no personality whatsoever The story is frankly unmemorableSo ultimately you have a retcon that takes the most predictable explanation it possibly can and avoids really delving into the subject in depth all the while swearing up and down that it is really about something else entirely and doesn t just exist to be a retcon but then that so called main plot is written as insipidly and wanly as possible And you have characters thrown in that don t really fit in the setting at all but are added to the mix because readers recognise them and hopefully will get excited about itWeak2 out of 10

I was left off with the last novel thinking this one would follow Anakin searching for R2 that may have been an episode of the animated series but Anakin sure lost R2 a few times And if it didn t follow that storyline in the last book it was poor writing to include just to try and fit the story in the Clone Wars timeline Next I was rather bored with this novel I thought it was going to be an Asoka adventure and felt that way but it wasn t We did get one large piece of cannon that other Jedis who will marry exist which troubles Anakin Now I want to know if Vader hunted down these Jedi I d like to read that story But overall I disappointed in this book The only redeeming story point was the hints at the are clones people debate

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 ubiuitous–and insatiably curious–Padawan by bringing her along on a routine three day shakedown cruise aboard Capta. One of the best Star Wars books I ve read and I ve read 79 Traviss gets right inside people and makes them live and you care about themParadoxically this story is so far out of the main stream of the SW universe that it s almost general science fiction Though it has a few of the Big Names they don t contribute much to the plot Yes it could have been complicated and it could have been longer but for the thoughtful reader it provides plenty to think about which is something few other SW books do
