Overview

While the Clone Wars wreak havoc throughout the galaxy, the situation on the far world of Drongar is desperate, as Republic forces engage in a fierce fight with the Separatists. . . .

The threatened enemy offensive begins as the Separatists employ legions of droids into their attack. Even with reinforcements, the flesh and blood of the Republic forces are just no match for battle droids’ durasteel. Nowhere is this point more painfully clear than in the steaming Jasserak jungle, where the doctors and nurses of a small med unit face an impossible situation. As the dead and wounded start to pile up, surgeons Jos Vandar and Kornell “Uli” Divini know that time is running out.

Even the Jedi abilities of Padawan Barriss Offee have been stretched to the limit. Ahead lies a test for Barriss that could very well lead to her death–and that of countless others. For the conflict is growing–and for this obscure mobile med unit, there’s only one resolution. Shocking, bold, unprecedented, it’s the only option Jos and his colleagues really have. The unthinkable has become the inevitable. Whether it kills them or not remains to be seen.

Since I began my collection of Star Wars at the age of ten I immediately began reading their novels, and out of them all this novel showed suspence around every corner, like Star Wars should be.

Reaves and Perry wrap up their duology in satisfying fashion. The action continues, and the characters develop even more. The only weaknesses are the unnecessary recaps of the first book and the cheezy allusions to sayings from our galaxy (something like 'molok-faced' and 'the molok hits the refresher'). Otherwise, a great series. Too bad the prequel movies haven't been this good.

awesome...perfectly written. You feel like you are along side the characters. I wasn't able to put the book down.

Jedi Healer is not a bad book. That said, it's not a particularly good one, either. Let me explain. I loved the first Medstar novel, Battle Surgeons. It let us see others involved in the Clone Wars, not just the Jedi and stormtroopers-to-be. But while that book was excellent, and had a great setup for Jedi Healer, the latter just fell apart. The title character, the Jedi healer, Bariss? Reduced to a subplot, along with the actual fighting (which did have a role in the first book). The whole purpose of the fighting is undone, rendering the events of the novels pointless. And the reveal of the spy (continued from the first novel) involves too much false setup and no hints as to the real culprit. That said, I'm still looking forward to Reaves's upcoming Star Wars trilogy, since these two have both proven their potential elsewhere; Jedi Healer simply isn't a showcase for them.

Like the first volume, this one was better than I originally expected. I was interested to see how the identity of the saboteur was revealed, and the fallout from that. I really got interested in the characters, even though they were no name, never be seen again-ers.
