"In Another Fine Mess", R2 and 3PO are on Bri'ahl with Padme and get into some trouble to where 3PO loses his head again. They run into activists acting as Clones, and thwart their plans.
"The Brink" focuses on Anakin taking a solo mission from Obi-Wan after he hears a distress signal. he's brought to a Jedi facing some very odd aliens.
The Clones in "Orders" find a kid named Evan after a battle, and take him with them. Evan learns the harshness of Clone's orders and how they must obey...even with Order 66.
"Descent" takes place on Kashyyyk, I assume after Order 66 because the Wookiees face the Clones in a firefight. The Wooks lead the men to a monster's nest
1) "Another Fine Mess" - C-3PO and R2-D2 find themselves in one scrape after another in the middle of a Separatist plot to sway the balance on the planet Bri'ahl. It's nice to see the droids partnered up in a more original trilogy-styled adventure, as they are largely kept separate from each other in the prequel films. R2's flying jets, which are mysteriously not in existence in Episodes IV-VI, get yet another major workout in this story. They sure would have been handy on Dagobah!
2) "The Brink" - Anakin Skywalker disobeys orders and runs off to rescue Serra Keto, a Jedi in serious trouble on a space station overrun by Separatist machines. Anakin is entertaining in this story, displaying how his extreme skills compensate for his reckless nature. Things end on a funny note, although Padme probably wouldn't be too pleased.
3) "Orders" - Aiwha Squad, a crack group of Republic Commandos, rescue young Evan on a planet stuck in the middle of the fighting. We see the clones' fanatic dedication to following orders in all situations, and it seems almost inevitable that this story ends with Order 66. This is a more poignant story than the first two, and Evan's horrified reaction at the end is a quick glimpse of what many in the galaxy will be feeling as the Dark Times begin.
4) "Descent" - Presumably set right after Revenge of the Sith, clone troopers are hunting down Wookiees on Kashyyyk. Great action and it's good to see Chewbacca and Tarfful again. Not much changes for the Wookiees during this story; it mostly seems to set up the far worse events coming their way (the Empire's assault on Kashyyyk is part of the excellent Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader by James Luceno).
Clone Wars Adventures Volume Four was an enjoyable and fast-paced read. No story stands out for me in particular but all were well done.
