Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Woodring StoverThe turning point for the entire Star Wars saga is at hand
After years of civil war, the Separatists have battered the already faltering Republic nearly to the point of collapse. On Coruscant, the Senate watches anxiously as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine aggressively strips away more and more constitutional liberties in the name of safeguarding the Republic. Yoda, Mace Windu, and their fellow Masters grapple with the Chancellor’ s disturbing move to assume control of the Jedi Council. And Anakin Skywalker, the prophesied Chosen One, destined to bring balance to the Force, is increasingly consumed by his fear that his secret love, Senator Padme Amidala, will die.
As the combat escalates across the galaxy, the stage is set for an explosive endgame: Obi-Wan undertakes a perilous mission to destroy the dreaded Separatist military leader General Grievous. Palpatine, eager to secure even greater control, subtly influences public opinion to turn against the Jedi. And a conflicted Anakin–tormented by unspeakable visions– edges dangerously closer to the brink of a galaxy-shaping decision. It remains only for Darth Sidious, whose shadow looms ever larger, to strike the final staggering blow against the Republic . . . and to ordain a fearsome new Sith Lord: Darth Vader.
Based on the screenplay of the eagerly anticipated final film in George Lucas’s epic saga, bestselling Star Wars author Matthew Stover’s novel crackles with action, captures the iconic characters in all their complexity, and brings a space opera masterpiece full circle in stunning style.

For some, the release of Revenge of the Sith was the final gut shot in the series of gut shots that was the prequel trilogy. The revelation of how Anakin Skywalker took his Greek tragedian plunge into becoming Darth Vader was bittersweet. The Jedi seem more arrogant and out of touch than necessary with only vague allusions made as to why. Revenge is arguably the most important installment of the Star Wars saga. I first read the novelization a week before Revenge of the Sith was in theaters. I was eighteen years old and, lacking any patience whatsoever, I tore through it with a zealots intent to know. Even at my frenetic, consuming pace, I noticed aspects of the novelization that transcended novelization conventions.
Continuing the tradition of pre-released Star Wars novelizations , Matt Stover , author of other Star Wars Legends books such as Shatterpoint and The New Jedi Order : Traitor , was commissioned to write the final book of the prequel films.

Palpatine Tells Anakin About Darth Plagueis Redub - Extended Dialogue - ROTS Novelization
Posted on Wednesday, April 4th, by Allyson Gronowitz. When you think of Star Wars , you think of the movies first and foremost. But for the most part, Star Wars fandom begins and ends with the movies. But I was always fudging my answer a little. Novelizations have long been a part of Hollywood history.

Are deleted scenes considered canon?
