The Clone Wars novels is a series of five books that expand on the story of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The first book loosely covers the film, while the others are new stories set in the same era, generally during or between episodes of the show. Originally, Karen Traviss was going to write three of the books, and Karen Miller would write two. However, Miller was later set to write the last novel as well instead of Traviss, who has completely stopped writing in the Star Wars Expanded Universe.

These books contain examples of:
- Adaptation Expansion: Children of the Jedi gets this as Callista and Master Djinn Altis both get Clone Wars backgrounds.
- Anime Hair: Taria has this.
- Artifact of Doom: The Sith Holocron on Zigoola.
- Chaste Hero: Averted hard. The books take George Lucas' comment about Jedi not being celibate and run with it.
- The clones are explicitly said to get regular action too.
- Taria seems to imply that she and Obi-Wan were occasionaly more than just friends.
- The Dragon: Dooku thinks he's in a Big Bad Duumvirate but he's not. In fact, it's pretty clear Palpatine holds him in complete contempt.
- Ho Yay: A complaint about the series, Clone Wars: Wild Space contained a great deal of intimate holding and comfort between a near-death Obi Wan and Bail Organa.
- Hurt Comfort Fic: Essentially, a canonical version of what Wild Space was.
- Ill Girl: Taria Damsin.
- The Messiah: Obi Wan Kenobi.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: Lok Durd.
- President Evil: Chancellor Palpatine. Sorta obvious there.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Bail Organa, Padme.
- Taria Damsin is one of these characters.
- Victorian Novel Disease: Essentially, Taria has what appears to be a Space version of Tuberculosis crossed with cancer. It only makes her more beautiful, pale, and tragic.
