Is it sad that I am glad that The Clone Wars was cancelled so that Dark Disciple could be a book? I have no idea how Dark Disciple could have been done justice in the format of a TV Show.
When I read the blurb for Dark Disciple, my first thought was “what is the point of this book? Obviously Vos and Ventress fail to kill Count Dooku as Anakin kills him in Revenge Of The Sith”. I now understand why they used this as the main focus, but it does take away from the unpredictability of a book as the ending was known, well part of it at least.
Dark Disciple is set during The Clone Wars, and is based around an arc of unaired episodes. The Jedi Council has decided that Count Dooku has become too much of a threat and that is death would help end The Clone Wars. The Jedi Council decide to send Jedi Master Quinlan Vos to use Asajj Ventress’s hate for her former master to execute him. What follows is honestly just indescribable.
I have fallen in love with Quinlan Vos and Asajj Ventress. I never thought that it would happen, but it did. Even though I have only seen the first 3 seasons of The Clone Wars, I like to think that I have a rough idea of what has happened before the events of Dark Disciple.
I would recommend Dark Disciple to anyone who likes Star Wars, or any kid who like The Clone Wars or Rebels TV Show. Do not let Aftermath cloud your judgment of the other canon books!
