Now, following the momentous events climaxing in the Battle of Geonosis, Master Mace Windu must undertake a perilous homecoming to his native world to defuse a potentially catastrophic crisis for the Republic...and to confront a terrifying mystery with dire personal consequences.
The jungle planet of Haruun Kal, the homeworld Mace barely remembers, has become a battleground in the increasing hostilities between the Republic and the renegade Separatist movement. The Jedi Council has sent Depa Billaba, Mace's former Padawan and fellow Council member, to Haruun Kal to train the local tribesmen as a guerilla resistance force, to fight against the Separatists who control the planet and its strategic star system with their droid armies. But now the Separatists have pulled back, and Depa has not returned. The only clue to her disappearance is a cryptic recording left at the scene of a brutal massacre - a recording that hints of madness and murder, and the darkness in the jungle...a recording in Depa's own voice.
Mace Windu trained her. Only he can find her. Only he can learn what has changed her. Only he can stop her.
Jedi were never intended to be soldiers. But now they have no choice. Mace must journey alone into the most treacherous jungle in the galaxy and into his own heritage. He will leave behind the Republic he serves, the civilization he believes in, everything but his passion for peace and his devotion to his former Padawan. And he will learn the terrible price that must be paid when keepers of the peace are forced to make war.

I'm not sure why this was abridged, I don't care enough to research it. But I have read the book and listened to the audiobook, and there is simply no value in the abridged version, not as compared to the book. The story is good, as is the narrator, I wish he could have read the whole story, its not his fault. You are better off reading it, I'm sorry to say.

An explanation of why he's such a beloved Jedi.
What did you love best about Star Wars: Shatterpoint: A Clone Wars Novel?
I've been wanting to get this book for a while. Mace is my number two favorite Jedi of all time, and this book does a great explanation as of why.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Windu's struggle between his dark-side roots and his devotion to the Jedi teaching throughout the book is very compelling. Nice to see that the greatest Jedi (plural) arent the ones most static in there beliefs.
Any additional comments?
Can't wait to use 29:45 of chapter 2 against feminist complaining about the word "bossy". It will be easier to show them how it should be a compliment. Little girl saving boys FTW.
