about

While the Clone Wars wreak havoc throughout the galaxy, the situation on the far world of Drongar is desperate, as Republic forces engage in a fierce fight with the Separatists. . . .

The threatened enemy offensive begins as the Separatists employ legions of droids into their attack. Even with reinforcements, the flesh and blood of the Republic forces are just no match for battle droids’ durasteel. Nowhere is this point more painfully clear than in the steaming Jasserak jungle, where the doctors and nurses of a small med unit face an impossible situation. As the dead and wounded start to pile up, surgeons Jos Vandar and Kornell “Uli” Divini know that time is running out.

Even the Jedi abilities of Padawan Barriss Offee have been stretched to the limit. Ahead lies a test for Barriss that could very well lead to her death–and that of countless others. For the conflict is growing–and for this obscure mobile med unit, there’s only one resolution. Shocking, bold, unprecedented, it’s the only option Jos and his colleagues really have. The unthinkable has become the inevitable. Whether it kills them or not remains to be seen.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A pretty good story. I had to wait almost a year to finish this book. The first copy I got was missing 30 pages in the middle, so I was well into it and thoroughly enjoying it before I had to stop and find another copy. So, like I said, I was really into it and so when I wasn't able to finish it, I think I built it up in my head a lot. When I finished it, I was not as thrilled. Was it because I had super high expectation, because I was away from it for too long, or because it just wasn't good? I honestly can't say. It wasn't a bad book, it just didn't hit that certain spot that makes or breaks a Star Wars book for me. All the same, I would recommended as a definite read for SW fans.

Editorial Reviews

"FULL OF LIGHTSABER BATTLES, THE JEDI PHILOSOPHY, AND LOTS OF NEW LIFE-FORMS.""--Chicago Sun-Times "Reaves writes with a creative flair, allowing readers to experience an almost cinematic sensation as they move through the story. The language is colorful, the action scenes are dynamic, and the dialogue is realistic.... Shadow Hunter is a very good "Star Wars novel that reads as easily as a comic book.... Reaves does an excellent job.""--Winston-Salem Journal
