the worst SW novel I have ever read. A pair of ridiculous children are the centerpiece of the story - Yoda and any other recognizable characters are mere afterthoughts. ( )

a very interesting look at Yoda. I enjoyed it, will probably buy it. ( )

One of the better Star Wars extended Universe Clone Wars novels. Some humor and some philosophical thoughts that made me pause to laugh or think.

"I always thought I was a good person," he said quietly. I could never see the point of... stealing food from the kitchen. Or cheating on exams. I was a good boy," he said heavily. "I thought that was the same as virtue."

"Amazing how easy it is to resist other people's temptations isn't it," Jai responded dryly.

While Star Wars Yoda Dark Rendezvous isn’t the worst Star Wars novel I’ve read, it’s not the best either. As the title implies the story centers on Yoda and includes only brief appearances by other iconic Star Wars characters like Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. The author includes many worldly references that don’t feel very much like Star Wars: paper in mentioned although at the time of the clone wars paper was already an antique. There is a reference to a bee (not some type of bee, just a plain old bee). Also plastic is mentioned which isn’t too unusual but it seems kind of unimaginative. On the upside of things, there were some neat new characters. There was also a funny moment between Yoda and a droid that’s reminiscent of Yoda vs. R2 on Dagobah. Perhaps my favorite thing about this book is how quickly things get rolling: I found myself enjoying the book as early as chapter three. There are some things about this novel that remind me of the Jedi Quest series. I really like the way the Jedi train in there temple on Coruscant in the first few chapters of the book. Over all, it’s a pretty good story and an easy read and, although I’ve enjoyed other Star Wars books more, I’d still suggest it to a friend. ( )

I realized the other day that I've kind of abandoned my first love in reading, Science Fiction! I love fantasy, but I decided it was high time to work some Science Fiction back into my reading diet. Why did I start with Star Wars? I have no clue. I just was randomly looking for books and decided that a book about Yoda was a GREAT way to restart reading Science Fiction.

"Yoda - Dark Rendezvous" by Sean Stewart is a Clone Wars novel. I was a little nervous about it because I've never really liked the Clone Wars novels as much as the rest of Star Wars canon, but it's about Yoda! I'm glad I picked it up, because I definitely was not disappointed!

In this book Count Dooku has decided to try and take out Master Yoda by inviting him to his hideout under the guise of forming a treaty. Yoda, knowing this is probably a trick, decides to go anyway, and takes along two Jedi Masters and their Padawans.

Stewart took the time for us to get to know the young Padawans before they left for Dooku's hideout. We meet them as they prepare for a Force Tournament. Scout is nervous as she faces the tournament because, while she's always worked hard, the force has never been strong in her. This is her last chance to prove her worth, and if she doesn't she knows she will probably be reassigned to the Agricultural Corps.

Whie doesn't have as much to worry about. He has a close relationship with his Master, and the force has always been strong with him. He does, however, occasionally have prophetic dreams that can be well, disturbing, to say the least. One of his most recent one's has left him distractable, and that will affect his performance.

We learn a lot about both Padawans through the tournament, and Scout amazes everyone! But no one is more astounded than her when she's assigned a Master and told she's going on a trip with Master Yoda!

One thing Stewart did a magnificent job with was his portrayal of Yoda. He did an incredible job at recreating the beloved Master, and he threw in a great mix of laughter as well. Both from Yoda, and through out the rest of the book! If you like Star Wars at all, I recommend this book. ( )

As the Clone Wars rage, Jedi Master Yoda must once again face one of his greatest adversaries: Count Dooku. . . .

The savage Clone Wars have forced the Republic to the edge of collapse. During the height of the battle, on Jedi Knight escapes the carnage to deliver a message to Yoda on Coruscant. It appears that Dooku wants peace and demands a rendezvous. Chances are slim that the treacherous Count is sincere but, with a million lives at stake, Yoda has no choice.

The meeting will take place on Djun, a planet steeped in evil. The challenge could not be more difficult. Can Yoda win back his once promising pupil from the dark side or will Count Dooku unleash his sinister forces against his former mentor? Either way, Yoda is sure of one thing: This battle will be one of the fiercest he’ll ever face.
