Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Book 3 of 5 from The "New" Clone Wars series of novels based off the 2008 Animated Movie
The Clone Wars rage on. As insurgent Separatists fight furiously to wrest control of the galaxy from the Republic, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine cunningly manipulates both sides for his own sinister purposes.
Torrent Company's Captain Rex agrees to temporarily relieve Anakin Skywalker of Ahsoka, his ubiquitous--and insatiably curious--Padawan, by bringing her along on a routine three-day shakedown cruise aboard Captain Gilad Pellaeon's newly refitted assault ship. But the training run becomes an active--and dangerous--rescue mission when Republic undercover agent Hallena Devis goes missing in the middle of a Separatist invasion.
Dispatched to a distant world to aid a local dictator facing a revolution, Hallena finds herself surrounded by angry freedom fighters and questioning the Republic's methods--and motives. Summoned to rescue the missing operative who is also his secret love, Pellaeon--sworn to protect the Republic over all--is torn between duty and desire....

assault tanks and seeing how much damage we can do before they stop us.” “And then getting out,” Geith said. “That has its appeal, too, I admit.” Altis drew his lightsaber before he stepped out of the shuttle, ready to deflect incoming bolts, but the Separatists’ attention was elsewhere. Ahsoka and Callista jumped down to flank him. “Careful, sir,” Rex said. “I’m always surprised by this.” Altis inhaled the smoke in the air. “In the middle of battles, there are always these little pockets of
he hadn’t seen before: regret. “I put you all to a lot of trouble,” she said quietly. It was the first time they’d seen each other in weeks. Nothing unusual, given their jobs, but this wasn’t the romantic reunion he’d planned. “How’s he doing?” Pellaeon asked. He wasn’t sure who was going to answer. There was a silent pause as the rest of the clones either looked at Rex, or didn’t look up at all. “His kidneys are failing,” Rex said. “So that makes any brain damage from hypoxia a bit academic
no idea what his life was about. If he let that doubt take hold, he would never be able to deal with Skywalker again, or be able to lead his men. And he had to lead them because they depended on him. His whole existence depended on believing in what he was doing. The little nagging voice that he tried to ignore was actually being more constructive this time. Don’t even think about it, the voice said. Because you can’t change a thing. So what if it’s true? Where are you going to go? What else
