    One thought on “Shatterpoint

    1. Jim on said:

      I haven t been keeping up with the Star Wars novels lately, but I had been curious about this one It wasn t what I expected A page turner to be sure, with lots of fighting and action and light sabery goodness, but there s something much deeper going on here Shatterpoint is set after Attack of the Clones Mace Windu receives a troubling message from his former Padawan Depa Billaba Now Mace must travel to the jungle world of Haruun Kal to find Depa and either save her or destroy her The thing that [...]

    2. Katrin von Martin on said:

      I have to admit that I put this book off for a while So far, I ve been largely unimpressed by the Clone Wars era and have never given Mace Windu much thought beyond his brief, seemingly unimportant role in the movies Now, however, I have a newfound respect for Master Windu and am inclined to believe that Shatterpoint is one of the best Star Wars books out there Spoilers follow In the grand scheme of the Clone Wars, the events on Haruun Kal are probably largely unimportant To the characters invol [...]

    3. Justyna on said:

      I read quite a lot of Star Wars book over the last couple of years and this book was definitely different and darker than what I usually read First of all, the main character is Mace Windu I don t think I ever saw another book with him playing such a big part in the story He travels to his home planet to search for his missing former Padawan, Depa Billaba, who was send there on the mission the book takes place shortly after The Attack of the Clones He doesn t know what really happened to her, an [...]

    4. Charlie on said:

      This book is way better than an original novel starring Mace Windu has any right to be.

    5. Crystal Starr Light on said:

      He was looking forward to doing straightforward, uncomplicated butt whooping Depa Bilaba, Mace s only student of Vapaad, has been sent to Haruun Kal, Mace Windu s homeworld But a disturbing message indicating she is unstable causes Mace to return to his root There, he must battle than just the jungles, than the predators around every corner, than the Korunnai and the Balawaihe must face himself and what it means to be a JediTE Based on audiobook and novel.If you are going to open this with th [...]

    6. Sean on said:

      This is as good as space opera gets My buddy John, who absolutely _hates_ the prequel trilogy and Mace Windu in them, loved it.This is Mace Windu as he should have been This is the best action writing I ve read This is a tale of a holy warrior pitted against a world of darkness.Warning For the squeamish out there, this novel gets pretty graphic in its violence and its portrayal of the horrors of war.

    7. Greg on said:

      THE FURTHER YOU get into this scintillating, compelling, fascinating, totally unique and absolutely enthralling member of the beloved Expanded Universe, the better it gets There s no doubt, however, that it starts off with a bang We learn many things in SHATTERPOINT about the wonder that is Jedi Master Mace Windu, not the least of which what a shatter point actually is But we also learn the number of combat techniques there are six that are available to a Jedi and their Padawan We also learn of [...]

    8. Ethan on said:

      As a general rule, I pretty much hate the idea of media tie in novels, and the whole franchise thing turns me off My brother has been trying to get me to read a few of these Star Wars authors Stackpole, Zahn for quite a while, and I resisted since I could only imagine books populated by hack riffs on the old themes, catch phrases and rehashes of the good old days when Leia told Han she d rather kiss a wookieat kind of thing.Of course, Stover wouldn t do that This is the 4th book of his I ve read [...]

    9. Sara on said:

      A page turner for sure This book follows Mace Windu as he searches for his former padawan, Depa Billaba, to find out what happened to her This was a good read, full of action and believable characters Well written and the story was executed superbly Throughout the story I found myself really connecting with Mace As the story progressed, I could feel his dispair in me At one point I felt overwhelmed with hopelessness A book rarely does that to me, and I was surprised But in the end, I was left sa [...]

    10. Angela on said:

      Mace Windu s old padawan has got involved in a war and may have fallen to the dark side Mace goes after her alone, to his home planet This is Heart of Darkness with a jedi twist The journey through the jungle, looking for his elusive pupil, to the horrors of war, just pay homage to Heart This is a dark, depressing kind of book, with lots of horrible things happening It does not glamorise war in any sense of the word Mace s character is strongly enough written to drive the plot forward A good rea [...]

    11. Ron on said:

      A good story, but poorly told Sophomoric humor and lapses of simple grammatical standards detract from what could have been much better It s as if Stover s target audience was thirteen year olds.Having said that, Stover attempted an unblinking appraisal of the ugliness of war While the writing soon after September 11, 2001 may have contributed to the stark lessons he conveyed, those lessons are universal.

    12. Farrell on said:

      This is an almost spoiler free review What is spoiled, is mostly revealed on the back of the book, or inside the hardcover s wrapper This novel centres around one of the most popular secondary characters in the Star Was Universe, Mace Windu Part of that is how the character was written, but I am sure it has to do the fact that it was portrayed on screen by the very talented actor, Samuel L Jackson As such, you can t look at the character on screen, or read about him in a book without echos from [...]

    13. Stanislav Malchev on said:

      A great Star Wars story I wish I ve read it in 2004 when it was published, when my passion for starwars was peaking and when the story was still canon Still a good read though.

    14. Kyle on said:

      According to the author, Shatterpoint was meant to be Apocalypse Now, but set in the Star Wars universe Somehow, than ten years after reading Shatterpoint, I still haven t seen Apocalypse Now But if the movie is anything as good as Shatterpoint, I know that I ll love it.It s hard to know how to describe Shatterpoint, because there has never been anything like it in the Star Wars universe Stover s first foray into Star Wars was the New Jedi Order novel Traitor, which will probably always be reme [...]

    15. Shadab Siddiqi on said:

      The title of this book comes from mace windu s belief that the world is like a diamond and you must be a master craftsman to know where and when to strike at the shatter points in order to cut properly He blames himself for not taking the head of Count Dooku when he had the chance before the massacre of jedi in the ring at Geinosis at the end of Episode II Mace felt as if this was one shatterfpoint he missed I like the sufi wisdom in it.But for those of you who didn t know Mace Windu is a living [...]

    16. Patrick on said:

      Heart of Darkness Star Wars style This book is fabulous in my opinion Mace Windu kicks butt, and it really explores the bigger philosophical questions of justification for war, hatred through misunderstanding, and whether it was possible for the Jedi to survive the Clone War even if they had caught Palpatine and won militarily This book makes the gap between Episode II and Episode III human and real rather than some abstract wars between droids that shoot bright lights at each other in space Thi [...]

    17. Amber on said:

      Possibly my favorite Star Wars novel to date Shatterpoint is far darker than the vast majority of Star Wars books I ve read, showing a realistic side of war than we generally see in this franchise.It certainly doesn t hurt that Mace Windu is one of my favorite secondary Star Wars characters.Basic summary Months into the Clone Wars, Mace Windu s fellow Council member, and former apprentice, Depa Billaba was sent to Windu s homeworld to help guerrilla forces fight off the Separatists Her mission [...]

    18. Corey on said:

      Once again I ll say that I wasn t a fan of the prequel Star Wars, but Mace Windu had to be my favorite character from the prequels, aside from Darth Maul And I m also a die hard Samuel L Jackson fan, he s just AWESOME If I remember correctly, in this book, Mace Windu is on a distant planet in search of a missing Jedi that he had trained The storyline was interesting l, and just a fun read.I was so sad when Darth Sidious Palpatine kills Mace in Revenge of the Sith, I just hated him so much, but I [...]

    19. Billy Maise on said:

      Mace Windu is such a baller I was so pumped that he finally got his own book.The fact that Windu is a cold clean killing machine whose lightsaber style Vaapad is like, centimeters away from the Dark Side, is just epic He is probably my favorite Jedi of all time.This book did an excellent job of letting you enter Mace Windu s awesome psyche There was a lot of action, a lot of intrigue Basically, a great Star Wars novel By the way, he s the only one who could pull off that purple lightsaber.

    20. Sarah on said:

      An amazing book This book deals with the hard realities of war and what it can do to the people and the planets involved.Maybe one of the best Star Wars books I ve read in my short time catching up with the EU They usually run from cheesy to melodramatic, to fun and interesting to dull and plodding I love the Star Wars universe and look forward to continuing to find gems like this in the haystack.

    21. Nicholas on said:

      I usually don t write reviews, but this book was amazing I have read well over a hundred star wars novels, varying in characters, time period, plot, and quality, but this was one of the best It was a masterpiece, very thought provoking, very good imagery, incredibly developed characters, and an almost perfect plot I definitely recommend this book, and am so glad I decided to read this book.

    22. Brad on said:

      A solid addition to the Clone Wars novels This novel alone made me seek out writing by Stover His story was ever unfolding and it was hard to predict what the outcome would be at any given time The characters were real and even the ones you d think you wouldn t care about became emotionally bonding Stover did a work of art in this piece.

    23. Anime Mage on said:

      Making great use of some of the most interesting era in Star Wars along with the excellent talents of Mathew Stover, this book does a fantastic job of adding to Mace Windu s character with a story worth of the Star Wars name.4 5 a great book that any Star Wars fan should be required to read

    24. Paul on said:

      The Star Wars universe had always lacked bad asses Luke was whiny, Han is gallant charming and Mace Windu is a bad bad man and that is why this is my second favorite Star Wars book.

    25. Michael Barker on said:

      It s literally apocalypse now but In the Star Wars universe Very captivating

    26. A Bald Mage** Steve on said:

      Star Wars meets the Vietnam war really enjoyed this one very grim in tone one of the best Clone wars novels out there 7.5 10

    27. Eric Farr on said:

      Shatterpoint is not a bad Star Wars novel, but neither is it an especially good one In a way, it suffers from some of the problems of the Prequel Trilogy movies that it ties into These problems are especially obvious when contrasted with the derivative but highly entertaining The Force Awakens George Lucas s last attempts at the franchise were than willing to experiment with storytelling and form, than willing to continue to push at genre, but they were ultimately harmed by these efforts at or [...]

      Even the strongest of gems have that one spot where they are weakest The one spot that creates a cascading effect which causes it to shatter Everything has a shatterpoint, including Jedi This is Jedi Master Mace Windu s talent, he can find a person s shatterpoint The one thing where they are weakest and thus use it to claim an advantage He will need this ability when he has to return to his home world of Haruun Kal to find out what has become of his former padawan, Depa Billaba What he finds whe [...]

    29. Rick on said:

      I read the Kindle edition of Shatterpoint I chose it, because it regularly sits on people s Star Wars books to read lists It wouldn t be in my top 10 or even 20 Star Wars books to read, but it is a good read, and delves into darkness in a way most Star Wars books ignore.Set between the Battle of Geonosis in Episode II and the battle between Master Windu and Darth Sidious in Episode III yes, prequel era , Shatterpoint tells a story of Master Mace Windu journeying back to his home planet of Haruun [...]
