Star Wars - Clone Wars - Quinlan VosIt’s been an epic journey but this penultimate volume of the Clone Wars saga sees the end of the Quinlan Vos’s epic mission. If you’ve read the previous books, you’ll know that Vos is a Jedi who’s been working so deep undercover, he’s starting to embrace the dark side of the Force a little too enthusiastically. Well, now it’s crunch time and Vos will have to make a choice between light and dark. But as ever, things aren’t quite as simple as they seem.

Star Wars - Clone Wars - RancisisWe won’t spoil it for you by talking too much about the ending, but Ostrander manages to wrap the finale into a fairly neat bundle, though it leaves a feeling that we haven’t heard the last of Vos. But then, what would the Star Wars universe be without a bit of room for a sequel? We ought to be used to it by now.

The artwork is well handled, with plenty of leaping lightsabre battles in the style of the recent films, some suitably evil looking adversaries and a handful of rather odd Jedi.

With only one more book left in the series after this, you’d be bonkers to leave this one out if you’ve been following it up until now, and it certainly ties up some lose ends, leaving little for the last book to do except connect it all to the Revenge of the Sith.
