The war that erupted in Star Wars: " Episode II" Attack of the Clones is nearing its boiling point, as the dauntless Separatist forces continue their assault on the teetering Republic-and the diabolical triumvirate of Count Dooku, General Grievous, and their Master, Darth Sidious, fine-tune their strategy for conquest. In Episode III Revenge of the Sith the fates of key players on both sides of the conflict will be sealed. But first, crucial events that pave the way to that time of reckoning unfold in a labyrinth of evil. . . .
Capturing Trade Federation Viceroy-and Separatist Councilmember-Nute Gunray is the mission that brings Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, with a squad of clones in tow, to Neimoidia. But the treacherous ally of the Sith proves as slippery as ever, evading his Jedi pursuers even as they narrowly avoid deadly disaster. Still, their daring efforts yield an unexpected prize: a unique holotransceiver that bears intelligence capable of leading the Republic forces to their ultimate quarry, the ever-elusive Darth Sidious.
Swiftly taking up the chase, Anakin and Obi-Wan follow clues from the droid factories of Charros IV to the far-flung worlds of the Outer Rim . . . every step bringing them closer to pinpointing the location of the Sith Lord-whom they suspect has been manipulating every aspect of the Separatist rebellion. Yet somehow, in the escalating galaxy-wide chess game of strikes, counterstrikes, ambushes, sabotage, and retaliations, Sidious stays constantly one move ahead.
Then the trail takes a shocking turn. For Sidious and his minions have set in motion a ruthlessly orchestrated campaign to divide and overwhelm the Jedi forces-andbring the Republic to its knees.

and Anakin Skywalker's pursuit of old enemy Viceroy Gunray leads the pair deep into interstellar space, to some well-drawn if unappetizing planets, in James Luceno's jaunty Star Wars: Labyrinth of Evil. While the author does a good job of maintaining excitement without revealing any secrets of the forthcoming final Star Wars movie, this tie-in, unlike some other Star Wars novels, has no features to give it interest apart from its link to the popular film series.

No longer a Padawan apprentice, Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker accompanies Obi-Wan on a galaxywide search for the mysterious Sith Lord, Darth Sidious, in an attempt to put an end to his evil schemes. As Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's emergency powers grant him a stronger hold over the political reins of the Republic, the Separatists, led by former Jedi Count Dooku, look to the Sith for support. Anakin and Obi-Wan weave their way through a tangle of intrigue and battles only to find that each clue leads to another. Luceno (Star Wars: Cloak of Deception) crafts a tale of adventure and derring-do that bridges the time line between the events of George Lucas's films, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (scheduled for release May 2005). Spot-on characterizations of familiar series characters and a genuine feel for the space opera genre make this a strong addition to the series and a demand purchase for most libraries.
