    Summary: The fate of General Grievous could have been so different if only he'd learned the truth behind his extreme makeover. In this version of his career, spanning the events of the Clone Wars and ROTS, he does.

    Although this fic wasn't updated since August of 08 and will most likely remain unfinished, it's still worth a read for everyone who likes the darker characters of Star Wars. The reader get's a look into the inner workings of General Grievous, from the manipulations making him the killing machine he is, to his past as a warlord on a primitive planet. The story is told from the POV of a well developed female OC, who is forced to become Grievous's "physician" and starts to discover the reasons behind his aggressions.

    Don't worry, there is no Cyborg/OC romance or sex, instead you get a lot of light saber fights (Grievous/Jedi), intrigue (Grievous/Dokoo/Sidious) and planet busting military action, plus tons of character development. The technical writing is very good, the pacing is OK, the plot develops nicely... this would get a 5/5 if it were complete, but as an abandoned novel length fic it's still worth:

    4/5
