    Apologies if this is the wrong forum.

    It has been announced that there are to be five novels published surrounding the events of the Clone Wars. The first was published last year and is based on the animated movie.

    The second novel is Wild Space -

    "The Clone Wars have exploded across the galaxy as Republic forces and Separatists struggle to gain the upper hand. But while the Jedi generals work tirelessly to defeat Count Dooku and his rebels, Supreme Chanceller Palpatine is hatching his own dark plans.

    The Separatists have launched a sneak attack on Coruscant. Obi-Wan Kenobi, wounded in battle, insists that Anakin Skywalker and his rookie Padawan Ahsoka leave on a risky mission against General Grievous. But when Senator Bail Organa reveals explosive intelligence that could turn the tide of war in the Republic's favor, the Jedi Master agrees to accompany him to an obscure planet in the Outer Rim to verify the facts. What Obi-Wan and Bail don't realize is that they're walking into a deadly trap concocted by Palpatine... and escape may not be an option.

    Inspired by the full-length animated feature film Star Wars: The Clone Wars and brand new TV series, this thrilling adventure is filled with provocative, never-before-revealed insights into the characters of Obi-Wan, Anakin, Padmé, Yoda, Count Dooku and many other Star Wars favorites

    And the third is No Prisoners

    "A training session turns into a full-scale hostile action when Anakin asks Rex to get Ahsoka out of his hair for a while. Rex, Ahsoka, and a squad of young clone troopers new to Torrent Company join Captain Gilad Pellaeon's assault ship Leveler, fresh out of refit, for a 72-hour acquaint. But an emergency tests their training as Leveler responds to a call for support from Master Djinn Altis -- leader of a dissident Jedi sect. The Leveler crew must rescue a captured Republic agent, whose undercover mission has been compromised. And for the first time, Ahsoka learns that war against the Separatists isn't just clone troopers against battle droids, and that sometimes the enemies are real living beings."

    My question is ... will these stories feature in Season 2 and/or 3 of the CW?

    No, the novels by Karen Traviss and Karen Miller novels are separate from the show as are The Clone Wars comics. They're part of the media blitz or at least what was designed as a media blitz.

    Shame. I liked the idea of an Obi-Wan / Bail Organa episode.

    CLone Wars the Novel is an expamded adaptation of the film.

    Wild Space does tie to the series, though I'm betting its events are unlikely to be referenced on screen during the programs.

    Wild Space itself does have internal continuity with the Duel of the Droids and Downfall of a Droid episodes, and mentions those events many times. The idea is that the novel is a look at what Obi was doing while Anakin and Ahsoka were off trying to rescue R2.

    ^^^ Yep... there's definitely some continuity with the events on the show.

    i enjoyed Wild Space. i think it got a little goofy near the end, but I liked it. Obi Wan has been my favorite character since 1977 and so it was nice to read a book that was almost entirely about him in the context of the Clone Wars.
