It's easy for we self-appointed literati to be snotty about tie-ins and franchise fiction, but often these novels are a gateway into reading for folks who might otherwise spend their time just watching TV and playing games. It's almost comforting to know therefore that there are real quality authors at work in these areas - one such being Australian writer Karen Miller, who is perhaps best know of late for her Kingmaker, Kingbreaker fantasy novels and also the Rogue Agent fantasies, written under the name K.E. Mills. No stranger to franchise material, Miller has written in the universes of Stargate and Star Wars, and here returns to the latter with Clone Wars Gambit: Stealth. Published by Arrow in paperback original.
"The first instalment of a two-book Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker adventure, set against the backdrop of the Clone Wars! Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker are on a secret mission to one of the many worlds caught in the middle of the struggle between the Republic and the Separatists. A pastoral planet, Lanteeb wants only to be left alone to survive -- but it is the source of what could be one of the most devastatingly destructive weapons ever. If this potential weapon were to fall into the hands of the Separatists, uncounted worlds would fall. But should the Republic succeed in destroying it first, one world that needs it to survive will be annihilated. A frightening dilemma that Obi-Wan and Anakin will have to untangle, if they can get in and out of the occupied planet alive... "
