I can't wait! Karen Traviss is my favorite SW author, and I love that we get to see the Clone Wars from "the grunt" perspective. I have read on the official SW site that some poeple dislike the direction that she has taken with the current RC novel, but in my humble opinion, things are only getting more interesting. I would love to know what happened to Omega Squad at that pivotal moment. What went through their minds, what action they took, and their consequences have been going around my mind for about 3 years now; I would love to get some answers. I know that she couldn't do an interview with the site, but hopefully at some future date she can. i expect nothing but good things from this novel.

I have high hopes for this one. There so much drama that can be pulled off from Order 66 that the characters are sure to be in for a roller coaster. I hate waiting, but this one will be worth it. Hopefully will get to see more of Vau since he really played a larger role in the last novel, and I've come to like him.

Yeah, that just might be Vau and Mird. Poor Mird. I am so excited about this book, though! The RC novels have got to be my favorites, because I've completely fallen in love with the commandos and the Mandalorians. Especially the boys we get to know so well in the books. I almost cried when Fi was hurt. It was so sad!

What I'd like to know is how many of the Clones where "saved" not just ARC's or Commando's. Also, I think Karen left a lot of puzzle pieces out there in Revelation that I'd like to see filled in. Are they going to be filled in during Invincible or will the seeds be sown during Order 66 and then be filled in in her new book later, I can't wait to read then review Order 66:-)

I'm just hoping that Omega and Delta squads didn't have to duke it out about some difference of opinion over their duty; duty to the Republic/Chancellor/Empire, or Kal Skirata's view of Mandolorian duties. It would make an interesting read though.....

Well, we know Scorch gets killed. Maybe we'll see his replacement in this book. Fi was my absulute favorite of all the Clone commandos, I really hope he gets fleshed out even more in this book. Of course, I hope to see Kal and Vau save the clones. I can't imagine Omega or Delta squads going along with Order 66, with they're history with Jusik and Etain, and with the growing uneasyness with the Chancellor.

I am thinking that Delta and Omega are going to get into a confrontation over order 66. The way Traviss has been exploring both groups and their differences makes me think this is where we are headed. I also think that since Vau used a lot of negative re-enforcement on Delta's training they are less likely to refuse the order. Omega is going to side with Darman - the only one I think that may take issue is Niner, but after what happened with Darman and the Cover Ops guys in the last book I think they see the big picture.

All right, after one evening and one full day of intense reading, I've finished Order 66. It was good, it was great, and it was marvelous. Karen Traviss did a stand up job yet again.

*sobs* That is so not fair. You didn't even have it two days ago. I got it yesterday and I'm only 40 pages in. Now you've got me so impatient! I am quite tempted to click on your spoiler, but I shall resist!
