Ok, took me a bit but I'm most of the way through The Clone Wars and No Prisoners. Everything I liked about them initially (Rex and Ahsoka interaction, etc) I still like. I also like how Travis handles the Altisian Jedi. I still don't like how she can't go more than a few pages before someone reflects on how evil/bad/wrong the Republic is and wonders if maybe they're on the wrong side (or should just go crawl in a hole somewhere, or whatever). I'm also not a fan of the all-encompassing cynicism that seems to pervade so many of the characters. Will I read more Travis? Probably. I can be a sucker for a genre I really like. (I even managed to make it through some of the Marshak/Culbreth Star Trek novels back when they were still writing them.) But I will be reading them with a strong mental "filter" as to how accurately they're depicting what is "really happening" in the story. Now, on to the other Karen (as soon as I finish the last bit of the Travis ones and have some time).
