As the Clone Wars rage victory or defeat Republic Commando Kindle #213 lies in the hands of elite suads that Star Wars PDF take on the toughest assignments in the galaxy–stone cold soldiers who go where no one else would Wars Republic Commando MOBI #238 to do what no one else could On a mission to sabotage a chemical weapon research facility on a Separatist held planet fou. 40 to 45 stars This is an excellent example of a really good writer which Karen Traviss certainly is using the Star Wars universe as background but still taking the the time to tell a good story If you were to remove the Star Wars elements from this book it would still be a compelling read as the characters are fully fleshed out the action scenes are very well written and the plot is excellent It is books like this that show you what a rich wonderful background the Star Wars universe can provide It also makes you angry that so many writers just mail it in knowing that the Star Wars brand will sell itself Highly recommended

Star Wars Republic Commando Hard Contact

R clone troopers operate under the very noses of their enemies The commandos are outnumbered and outgunned deep behind enemy lines with no backup–and working with strangers instead of trusted teammates Matters don’t improve when Darman the suad’s demolitions expert gets separated from the others during planetfall Even Darman’s apparent good luck in meeting an inexper. I ve never read a Star Wars book before so I don t know if this one is pretty typical for how it goes but I really enjoyed it It was far grittier than I expected and the combat was described with surprising realism The commandos faced hunger fatigue bad intel all on top of the actual fighting This wasn t like the movie where a single Jedi can take down an entire regiment of droidsHere we had 4 regular men and a young Padawan fighting tooth and nail literally to beat overwhelming odds and accomplish the mission By the end of it though mission accomplishment is still important you can tell they re no longer fighting for the Republic or any grand ideals They fight for each other and that s as real as it getsThe author also did an incredible job adding military terminology and uips and that s rare Their conversations and interactions never felt cheesy or forced So this one gets 5 stars from me I might have to get the next book in this particular series

Ienced Padawan vanishes once Etain admits to her woeful inexperienceFor the separated clone commandos and stranded Jedi a long dangerous journey lies ahead through hostile territory brimming with Trandoshan slavers Separatists and suspicious natives A single misstep could mean discovery and death It’s a virtual suicide mission for anyone–anyone except Republic Commandos.. Star Wars novels are my preferred brand of junk food reading I don t use that term because there s anything wrong with them I used to consume them multiple times weekly But it s franchise tie in fiction I know roughly what to expect and I know there s a good chance I ll enjoy it which makes it a good pick for cold rainy weekends Hard Contact is interesting because its a deviation from the ol Light vs Dark Jedi vs Sith conflict Set shortly after the battle of Geonosis it follows a suad of four Republic Commandos special ops Clone Troopers It s a decent mil SF book but the real conflict here is moral The clones think the Jedi are infallible the Jedi don t know what to do about this brainwashed army they ve been handled You get to read this on both sides There s also the backstory of the clones themselves with some fairly well done character voicesBy far the greatest reason I can recommend this is that it takes the whole clone wars situation seriously It s easy not to think about it too hard in the movies and the Clone Wars TV series though entertaining fails to hit the correct tone This though is gritty without being gratuitous and unflinchingly serious about what it takes to make a clone army and what the results would beA few minor issues1 Jacket description says chemical weapon book contents say nanovirus Execution is iffy either way Basically it s a doomsday macguffin2 No matter how brutal the training the clones went through was you cannot convince me that Niner didn t know how to scream These guys are still human that s a major point of the book even3 The antagonist has got a couple of hangups over the idea of going soft especially with regard to women He spends a lot of time reassuring himself that he s still a brutal shabuir of a Mandalorian even if he didn t kill somebody4 There are a couple things that really haven t aged well mainly an unfortunate shortening of Trandoshan and specism re the alien Weeuay charactersAction y junk food for a rainy weekend Recommended to Star Wars fans interested in mixing things up a little

    When is a Star Wars novel not a Star Wars novel? That seems to be one of the uestions raised by Republic Commando Hard Contact On the surface it very much seems to be one you have a group of Commando clone troopers trying to rescue

    40 to 45 stars This is an excellent example of a really good writer which Karen Traviss certainly is using the Star Wars universe as background but still taking the the time to tell a good story If you were to remove the Star Wars elements from this book it would still be a compelling read as the characters are fully fleshed out the action scenes are very well written and the plot is excellent It is books like this th

    Star Wars republic Commando – Hard Contact is a great read for anybody who loves Star Wars books or Star Wars in general The plot follows a suad of clone commandos and a Jedi Padawan as they carry out a mission on a farming planet In this way it is unlike most Star Wars books It is a great military book and shows how a four person suad works together The author uses imagery well to allow the reader to visualize the action and

    Talk about not judging a book by its cover Neither the title nor the cover art prepared me for this beautiful story full of well rendered thoughtfully constructed 3 dimensional characters and an at times heartbreaking at times funny adventure You don't have to have played the game this is a tie in to in order to enjoy and fully understand this book I'll definitely read the next in the series

    This is my first contact with the star wars expanded universe and this is a very good story with some profound deepness within although there’s something off that will not allow it to be a five star book Between the star wars and commando lexical the story is sometimes difficult to follow but well it is a star wars commando book so that kind of words were supposed to be there; between IED EP decees and so on the commandos express their i
