Audiobook Review: Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Stories of Light and Dark

Star Wars books always bring me a smile for their callbacks to material I love or nods to the familiar. Stories of Light and Dark is the perfect book for fans of The Clone Wars. Check out why this anthology will give you all the feels you may be missing since the show ended earlier this year (psst many of the voice actors narrate stories here!).

Review

I loved seeing Padme in action amongst her peers (much as I loved seeing Leia do the same in Bloodlines).

I felt a deep ache as Matt Lantner gives us prime Ani (back on my WHY ANAKIN BS).

My fist was shaking and the later in the air as Rex and the other clones fought in a war they didn’t ask for under a Jedi who didn’t care for them.

Bb Boba will never not make me laugh but dang do I want more Ventress after her story here (I know, I still need to read her book).

Being inside of Maul’s head is terrifying but also his hatred of Obi-Wan has never been more clear. If you know nothing else, it’s easy to see how this will be his downfall.

Speaking of Obi-Wan, this book didn’t have to punch me in the feels with Satine. I was not prepared for that.

Speaking of feels, the story featuring the younglings made me smile and also come back to my WHY ANAKIN curse. Why. Why Anakin.

This book is marketed as middle grade, which I assume is because the show is designed for that age. Other than that, I’m not finding specific themes that are common in middle grade. This is truly a story for fans who want to see different views on favorite episodes!
