Review by Anduril85
This was not one of my favorites, the beginning was alright as Anakin starts to build a friendship with a recently disgraced Jedi Master, but even that never really grabbed my attention. The characters I found most interesting were Lieutenant Erk H'Arman and Odie Subu and their struggle to stay alive and together through a battle field. As it gets towards the middle, the book starts dripping with military technical jargon for instance a whole page is about how much water the republic troops need and how much they don't have and what their trying to do about it, another has a protocol droid listing what military aid functions he's capable of for a page and a half, it was not interesting and in my opinion it wasn't necessary at all.I do like however that the book shows that the wrong choices can be and are sometimes made in a battle even by someone who is supposed to know what their doing, and I also liked how Anakins future potential is shown in the final battle with him being an unstoppable one-man army.
