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–and bring the Republic to its knees.… (mehr)

“Labyrinth of Evil” takes place immediately before the movie “Revenge of the Sith” with its conclusion leading straight into the movie’s opening.

The story is only mediocre. Once we get far enough to see exactly where it is in the Star Wars chronology, the conclusion is obvious, with no surprises.

It’s chock full of references to the movies, somewhat interfering with actually telling a story. Having seen the movies, of course, I just groaned at them. One, for instance, when several of the Jedi Council visit Chancellor Palpatine in his office, looking around at the various sculptures he’s accumulated and remarking that one is a demigod of “disguise”.

Another groaner is on an asteroid base Obi-Wan has to go with a local to disable a large tractor beam so their ship can leave, later telling Anakin, of all people, that it was nice to learn a new skill, but he’ll never use it again.

Luceno mentions a lot of characters and a lot of races that don’t really go anywhere. It gets confusing having to figure out if they’re people to remember or to blow off and forget.

And it gets awfully repetitive to keep mentioning Nute Gunray’s “mechno-chair” instead of after a while just calling it his “chair”. The “mechno” part just isn’t a significant part of the story.

The writing starts off feeling quite juvenile, simple words, simple sentence structures and so forth, but does move up a few grade levels after about the halfway point. The editors, however, didn’t proofread very well, so there’s a number of misspellings, mostly missing letters.

Overall, it’s a quick, mildly entertaining way to pass some time. But it’s far from one of the great Star Wars “Legends” novels. ( )

6 stars: Enjoyed parts of it

From the back cover: The war that erupted in Attack of the Clones is nearing its boiling point. In 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.

On the planet Neimoidia, Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker set out to capture a treacherous ally of the Sith. Though they come up empty, their daring efforts yield an unexpected prize: intelligence capable of leading the Republic forces to their ultimate quarry: the ever - elusive Darth Sidious, whom they suspect has been manipulating every aspect of the Separatist rebellion. In the escalating galaxy wide chess game of sabotage and retaliations, Sidious stays 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 and bring the Republic to its knees.

This book covers the mission immediately prior to Revenge of the Sith. I wanted to like it more than I did, but I really just found it ok and fairly forgettable. Not much to review. It is worthy to keep and remember, as it shows Anakin's trajectory.

A quote I liked: "I never claimed to be the chosen one. That was Qui-Gon. Even the Council doesn't believe it anymore, so why should you?"
"Because I think you believe it" Obi-Wan said calmly. "I think you know in your heart that you're meant for something extraordinary."
"And you, Master? What does your heart tell you you're meant for?"
"Infinite sadness" Obi-Wan said, even while smiling. ( )

immediate prequel to Episode III. Once I got past my distaste of Anakin[ie, Christian Hayden], I was really able to enjoy this book. Definitely fleshes out the happenings in Ep III. ( )

Leading up to the beginning of Revenge of the Sith, the novel oscillates between the ongoing adventures of Anakin and Obi-Wan, the machinations of Palpatine, Grevious, and Dooku, the Separatists, the Jedi, and the group of disgruntled senators who will eventually form part of the Rebel Alliance. The fight scenes are detailed, fast paced, and exciting, as are the instances of foreshadowing and scenes that parallel events that take place in the Star Wars Trilogy. Anakin continues to fight with his prescience and the Jedi Council’s apparent desire to ignore anything he says, Palpatine slowly moves players into an end game of his choosing, and Dooku and Grevious continue to act without ever truly understanding the parts they have been chosen to play.

Star Wars Labyrinth Of Evil is one of the best Star Wars novels I've read. The story is engaging and feels just like Star Wars Episode III. Although you can read and fully comprehend Star Wars III: Revenge Of The Sith without reading this book, this story is still well worth the reading and lays essential groundwork for episode III. I recommend this Star Wars Tale to any fan. ( )
