The two lovers are struggling to keep their relationship secret, and Obi-Wan is charged by Yoda with the responsibility of telling Padme that she needs to keep her distance from Anakin. It's not here - here we have Anakin and Padme acting like they're staring in a romance novel - with lovey-dovey dialogue that made me cringe to read and a selfish self-involved attitude that made me hate their relationship. I came into it with much the disdain of old-time Original Trilogy fans and did not have high expectations of anything from the era after trudging through the cartoon the 3D animated one, not the Samurai Jack one, which was fantastic, of course. Er, and television show now, I suppose. This is not Obi-Wan and it's not what I want to spend 300+ pages reading.
Check, check, and triple check! The Separatists have launched a sneak attack on Coruscant. Organa's and Kenobi's endless bickering was quite interesting. No need to show us again through her eyes. He notifies Obi-Wan and they partake on a journey for more information of this threat. He gets company on his journey: Bail Organa — a politician. I do, however, mind when an author misses the characterization of characters so completely as Miller does here. Adrick: I like the unexpected.
All in all, it reads like nothing but well-written fan fiction. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Wild Space is actually its own adventure. He's wry, witty, and charming in a way that not all novels show. Now, other authors are guilty of this, I know. The story starts off with Organia and Kenobi not really liking each other that much, and as they suffer through the experience together, they learn to be friends. But while the Jedi generals work tirelessly to defeat Count Dooku and his rebels, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine is hatching his own dark plans. Padme is supposed to be a pillar of civic responsibility and duty - a testament to personal sacrifice for the better of the people.
The story was well crafted and pretty amazing, in and of itself. The Separatists have launched a sneak attack on Coruscant. Unfortunately that was just a cool cover from stock art work and had nothing to do with the story. This cover tells me less than nothing about the book. The last thing that bothers me is that for some reason Disney does not consider this book canon even though it directly ties into the show, which is Canon. Her skills for excellent storytelling are clearly evident in Wild Space from beginning to end. This book takes place right smack in the middle of the Clones Wars era of the Star Wars universe.
Where is the belief that she and other loyalists can make things better? I thought I might be bored or might be upset that there wasn't more fighting sequences, but honestly, they would just clutter the book up. Bail Organa - while very briefly seen on film - never struck me as a brash, hard-liquor-drinking, arrogant, gullible jerk and that's certainly the way he comes off here. And I also found Ashoka Tono in these early episodes to be quite irritating. I Liked: There is a lot to love about this book, but the first thing I will discuss is characters. Background: Wild Space was written by and published in December of 2008.
This bothered me a great deal. I mean, this guy is a Senator and he's tossing around insults and rash statements like he's Han Solo or something. This novel is Obi Wan's and his alone, all the way to the trechorous planet of Zigoola. Long before Luke declares the failure of the Jedi order in The Last Jedi, this book picks up the thread. Yes Bail and Obi Wan look terrible and are badly injured. It's literally 75% politics and machinations which is great if you like court intrigue, I guess.
Yoda is a snippy, stingy, control-freak who shows almost no compassion for anyone at any point in the novel. It's an interesting dynamic made all the more fragile by her and Anakin's secret.

In addition, I liked how it was set in Duel of the Droids and Downfall of a droid time period, and how there was a reference in that too. Then again, introducing a random red-shirt would also be as predictable.
Padme is supposed to be a pillar of civic responsibility and duty - a testament to personal sacrifice for the better of the people. Does that make this a bad book. Seeing a true friendship develop between two seemingly very different men from very different walks of life was a delight, including the very human bickering along the way. But as the ship gets closer to Zigoola, Obi-Wan begins feeling the effects of the Dark Side and becomes gravely ill. During this same timeframe, Bail Organa receives a tip from his secret sources that the Sith are planning efforts to eliminate the Jedi.
