The boy who was Caleb Dune must find his feet as the Clone Wars rage all around him. When the Jedi Temple comes under attack, what can a mere Padawan do to make a difference? Caleb and his new Master Bilaba will take command of their own Clone troop, and lead them into the furious Battle of Mygeeto. But lying in wait for them there are a pair of Separatist Generals, one of whom is one of the most deadly threats in the entire galaxy! Can Caleb and Bilaba survive Grievous?

This story occurs approximately 4 years before Episode IV: A New Hope with the flashback stories occuring prior to, during and immediately after Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2016:

As a result of the the previous issue, Kanan gets a lot of time to reminisce and so we get a close look at a time long before order 66. While it is all very well presented and the story is very coherent, it did not hold my interest as well as the first issue. It is still worth the read, especially if you came this far, but I guess it was the right decision to end this series with the second trade. There is much jumping from one battlefield to the next and it is mostly standard and not to engaging stuff: The every day realities of war mixed with some character developments.
As mentioned in the review to the first trade,, the bond between new canon and the Legends book Shatterpoint is even more strengthened here and I am very interested how they will treat this book, if it will be rewritten from start to finish or simply get editorial corrections to fit the new canon... or maybe it will remain simply Legends, a version of the truth we never get to know...

Rating: 3 / 5
