Star Wars: Yoda - Dark R. Despite this, Sean Stewart does a good job writing a young adult Star Wars novel that engages in interesting character development and has a unique voice. We see far more character development in this book for Dooku and Yoda than in the entire Clone Wars TV series. We learn a bit about their past and how they think. Admittedly, in terms of screentime, Dooku and Yoda aren't the main characters of the book, but their relationship drives the story.

Dark Rendezvous’ will please Star Wars fans young and old. It’s a surprisingly well-written and elegant book, with plenty of thrills, an engaging plot and some unexpected twists. Stewart knows how to carry on with the characters known from the original Star Wars movies, making them sound and act the way we know them to do. But the newly conceived characters feel just as much a true part of this universe. The new Jedi masters and padawans, taking up a lot of space within this story, feel just as real and familiar as Dooku, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mace Windu.

While Star Wars Yoda Dark Rendezvous isn't the worst Star Wars novel I've . Let's face it: most Star Wars books are atrocious. One of the better Star Wars extended Universe Clone Wars novels

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. Every once in a great while, however, there's a really great one that makes the whole series worthwhile. This book really surprised me by being one of those. 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 went into this novel not expecting much of anything, the previous novels in the Clone Wars series were ok and didn't leave me feeling much of anything. This was the complete opposite.
This story feels like something George Lucas might have had in The Clone Wars show, from tone to characters to the way the story progresses, it feels like genuine Clone Wars action and drama. There's politics, Jedi crises concerning their doctrine and great Sith plotting. The book isn't all serious and introduces new characters who you'll find yourself loving.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves The Clone Wars animated series as the tone is very similar or to anyone who loves more than simple action in their Star Wars books.
If you read one book from the early 2000's Clone Wars novels let this be it.

Yep! There is definitely humor to be found in the Star Wars universe, but oftentimes it's more at the expense of the "bad guys" or Anakin losing his lightsaber. But in Dark Rendezvous we see a much more "human" side to oft stoic Jedi, even a little chuckle or two during scenes with Dooku or Ventress. Yoda delivers a few good ones, too, especially explaining how he got to be Grand Master (gigglesnort).

Scout was a standout character for me; I originally bought this book because I'm desperate for anything involving Asajj Ventress (she's my favorite), but I found Scout to be incredibly endearing without becoming annoying. I'm biased, but I would have liked to have seen more of what became of Asajj, but that's for another book. I really enjoyed getting to see a little into Dooku's head and simultaneously more into Yoda's immense power that's often talked about but rarely shown. When Dooku's scared of something, you know you'd better be as well.

What was especially nice about this story is the look inside the daily goings-on of the Jedi Temple. After nearly a full year of immersing myself into SW lore, the Temple always remained a very cut-off place for me. Sure, it's central to a lot of things and home to the "good guys", but what exactly goes on inside those walls? What do the children do everyday? Does the concept of fun even exist in there? As it turns out, yes it does. And you don't know how happy it made me to read the parts involving the tournament and how very much like a regular school it is for the Padawans.

I give this four stars instead of five because even though I think she was given some good dialogue, I really would have liked to have seen Ventress as more than a lapdog to Dooku. She's an amazingly layered character who's very rarely given the chance to be shown as more than an evil creature of the Dark Side. I liked her conversation with Dooku from her ship, but their first meeting left me wanting. Also, the ending was brought about too quickly. The idea of Dooku seriously contemplating turning his back on the Sith in incredibly appealing, but then it's dashed when a certain pair show up and his jealousy overrides everything he'd been thinking about and planning for weeks. At least throw in a few lines to deal with that instead of just ending it there.

First of all, Dark Rendevous seems like it was written more for a younger audience. It's part of the Star Wars adult novel line, but in tone it's very lighthearted The scenes in the Jedi Academy almost at times come across like a blend between Harry Potter and Star Wars. The story focuses on Whie and Scout, two pre-teen Jedi. We see the kids cry and act like kids. Some of the comical scenes are a bit over the top (including a toilet scene). So, just be aware that this book might not be written for you.

Despite this, Sean Stewart does a good job writing a young adult Star Wars novel that engages in interesting character development and has a unique voice. We see far more character development in this book for Dooku and Yoda than in the entire Clone Wars TV series. We learn a bit about their past and how they think. Admittedly, in terms of screentime, Dooku and Yoda aren't the main characters of the book, but their relationship drives the story. There are a few scenes in which I think Yoda comes off as too much of an impish gnome, but he also has some genuinely heartwarming pieces of wisdom - just like Yoda from Empire Strikes Back.

The rest of the Jedi come across as rounded characters more than capable of carrying the story. Whie and Scout, and their masters, Jai Maruk and Maks Leem, have their strengths and weaknesses. Their characters have multiple layers. I particularly liked how Stewart switches narrative points of view, allowing or own view of each character to grow and change.

I do like the way Stewart uses narrative voice in the book. The narrator is more active than in most Star Wars novels. Some of the passages have a lyrical quality. The narrator sometimes dishes out pieces of wisdom or astute observations about characters. It makes what is a relatively simple story and gives it more thoughtful content.

Overall, this is not a bad Star Wars book. It's obviously geared towards younger readers, but I suspect adults who are light of heart will enjoy it as well. We certainly learn more about Dooku and Yoda than in any other single Star Wars EU book out there.
