Book Review: Star Wars: The Cestus Deception- by Steven Barnes

Star Wars: the Cestus Deception: a Clone Wars NovelStar Wars: The Cestus Deception: a Clone Wars Novel by Steven Barnes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Like most of the early Clone Wars novels this one follows the same format of starring a main character Jedi with a minor one [this time Obi-Wan Kenobi with Kit Fisto]. The book has a strong start and a strong finish, but the middle is lacking. Specifically, the deception in the title mostly refers to the Jedi using deception, and not being as morally upright as they normally are. There is also a side plot of a Clone trying to understand his existence and place in the galaxy. It was cool to see (view spoiler) appear in a novel. The one thing I didn't like about the ending was much like Shatterpoint it was a little dues ex machina.
