You’ll know that I’m a fan of the Republic Commando series of novels if you’ve read Doctor Who: The Star Wars Chronicles. That story has many a reference and lifts a lot from the lore introduced in that series.
But while Republic Commando is Karen Traviss’ most popular contribution to Star Wars, she also had a few other novels within the franchise. One thing you wouldn’t expect, considering the type of story she writes and her history, is that she wrote The Clone Wars novelisation for the film.
Yes, all this is old news – with ten years separating then and now – but while I will be getting around to talking about the Republic Commando series, I felt starting with the novelisation would give me a chance to flex my reviewing skills in terms of books.
