Dark Disciple: Star ...

As the Clone Wars rage on with no end in sight, the Jedi Council comes to an agreement: Count Dooku must be eliminated. Quinlan Vos is recruited for the job, but can’t do it alone. In order to take out this enemy, he’ll have to work alongside the one person who’s come closest to doing the job before - Dooku’s former apprentice, Asajj Ventress. For a Jedi to work alongside a Sith, even a former Sith in training, is unheard of but Vos and the Jedi have no choice if they are to have any hope in bringing this endless war to a close. Star Wars fans, and Clone Wars fans in particular, will revel in this latest entry to Star Wars canon. Following on the heels of the Clone Wars cartoon, Dark Disciple uses previously unproduced show scripts to bring a new Clone Wars story to life. Dark Disciple is packed with action and great character development. Vos and Ventress take center stage, with Council members Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Anakin serving as supporting characters this time around. Even Boba Fett gets a cameo! But again it’s Vos and Ventress who are the stars. As the unlikely partners work together to gain one another’s trust and take out a common enemy, we learn more than ever about their histories and back stories. Golden’s vivid detail and description of these characters and the worlds they travel through make Dark Disciple a truly compelling read. It’s a must for any Clone Wars fan!

Harry Turtledove

Bombs Away: The Hot ...

Alternate fiction can be a tricky genre to get right, and for the past twenty years or so Harry Turtledove has been one of its masters. Unlike some other of his books, there's no time travel or aliens, Bombs Away is a strict "what if" alternate history tale, where one decision by Harry Truman changes the course of the 20th century. By picking a critical point in history where the use of atomic weapons was more than feasible yet before the invention of the more powerful hydrogen bomb, Turtledove was able to craft a story of potentially survivable atomic and conventional war, albeit not one that is a walk in the park for its survivors. This is a large story, with plot lines stretched across both coasts of the United States, East and Western Europe, Russia, China and Korea. And as the first book of a trilogy, don't expect any closure just yet. But once the characters are established and the plot begins to pick up speed, it's a fast read and seems like a much shorter book than its 500 pages. Meticulously researched and told from the point of view of the soldiers who fight and the civilians who survive the resulting war, it's fascinating look into how things may have gone differently.
