Boba Fett: A New Threat is the fifth in a series of young reader novels that chronicle the adventures of Boba Fett during the years between Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

Publisher's summary[]

A powerful enemy is the greatest danger.

When you work for Jabba the Hutt, you do whatever he wants you to do—no matter what the risk. As Jabba's newest bounty hunter, Boba Fett has a lot to prove…and little time to prove it. So when Jabba sends him into the thick of the Clone Wars, there's no backing down from the fight.

General Grievous is at the heart of the plot to overthrow the Republic. He is fierce, strong, and virtually unstoppable. When his path crosses Boba's, sparks fly—and many lives are threatened.

Plot summary[]

After working for Jabba for a few years, Boba had made a name for himself becoming Jabba's favorite bounty hunter. With that position, Boba was offered his first off planet assignment, to kill Wat Tambor.

After traveling to the planet of Xagobah, Boba had to find a way into Wat's fortress, The Mazariyan Citadel. To get inside, Boba had to not only survive the planets plant life, but also work his way through the Battle of Xagobah, which was a siege on the Citadel itself.

Once inside, Boba's search for Wat was helped when he was reunited with his old nemesis Nuri, and after a brief tussle, was told where to find him. Killing Tambor was easier said than done, and was made even more difficult when General Grievous turned up. After a short fight, in which Grievous just deflected young Fett's shots back at him and Fett diving away before he was hit, eventually, Boba was shot, and realizing that it was a good idea to play dead, he paralyzed himself with some Xabar fungus.
