Publisher's Summary

On the Outer Rim, the planet Lanteeb has no strategic value, no political power, and one enormous problem: It has been invaded by an emboldened Separatist Alliance. To find out why, Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi have snuck onto Lanteebe and now look oblivion in the eye.
Hiding their lightsabers beneath their dusty disguises, Anakin and Obi-Wan draw on their Jedi skills to stay one step ahead of Lok Durd's droid army on Lanteeb. The Jedi know that a captive scientist has given Durd the keys to a terrifying bioweapon. Durd knows that the Jedi are on his planet.
With Yoda calling on the powers of the Jedi Council, with a new Separatist technology jamming the Guardians' communications, and with a traitor at the heart of the Republic's government, the wheels of war are turning. But the Separatists have blockaded Lanteeb. The finishing touches are being put on a weapon to destroy whole worlds. And it will be up to the two Jedi Knights and their most trusted comrades to liberate Lanteeb or forever suffer the consequences.

It takes two books to tell a single mission

Would you listen to Star Wars: Clone Wars Gambit: Siege again? Why?

Well. Yes I have listened to Clone Wars Gambit three times and I am going to repeat them some more because these two books are my very first audible experience and it is exciting. The voice acting is great, living up the characters and the pace is tight and engaging. However the story doesn't stand out and I feel somewhat disappointing about the ending sections. After 20 hours detailed story portrait, I expected something special: a final picture that put all the pieces together, but there is no more than repetitive fighting and suddenly the reinforcements arrived and the story ended.

The storyline is quite predictable: bad guys have evil plans and good guys struggle and prevail, except that the length of the story to tell a usual Jedi mission is truly surprising. Take another view of thinking, this also indicates that there are hours of dialogues and descriptions of thought and feeling of the characters, and we won't miss and wander what they are thinking in every situation. To people who love intense arguments and care about the inner state of a Jedi, the approach is good.

There are a lot of Jedi works in the story I consider miraculous, and too many miracles makes it unconvincing. For example in the beginning of the story, Grievous' army totally jammed the communication system of the Republic army, and the Republic army led by Anakin and Obiwan managed to win the battle. Hmn, with Jedi, we can ignore all the principles of wars. Later on, the two Jedi will go further continuously fighting hundreds of droids, force curing people, manipulate all sorts of machines without taking food and rest for several days. Okay, because they are Jedi, nothing is impossible.

Karen Miller Fails Again

I thought I would give Karen Miller another try after her last effort "Stealth". But she fails again, extremely repetitive, she re-tells the same details throughout the book as if we (the reader/listener) cant remember what is going on. I am not a fan of abridgments, but if there was ever a need for one, it would be Karen Millers books.
