i feel like there getting back on track with SW books. the last series was not in depth enough and felt like a cheap pocket book. but i thought this author who writes allot of SW books pulled it back in line in this novel. this series has a little direction now. and im glad they are offering SW books unabridged now.
Abyss was a good listen. Really got the imagination going. Had to rewind a few times to give a second listen to parts. The story gets better with Leia. I have been waiting to see Leia flex her strength. You get a glimpse of it here.

Ben Skywalker: Very strategic thinking for a teen. His character always keep me smiling.
Don't want to give anything away. The story takes a turn to the odd, but I have a feeling more will be reveled in future books.
Husband, father, nurse, geek culture affianado, tech junkie, late-blooming history lover, armchair theologist, Lego enthusiast, and follower of Christ.
This one takes a turn from the first two and has a very dark, creepy feeling to it--which works! It's a nice change of pace and gives the story new depth. And the haunting music is really outstanding!
I definitely felt the "hungry purple tentacles" runing up my spine!
Once again, Marc Thompson does a tremendous job narrating. This is not a series to miss!
I am really liking this series of books and this is another gem. Reading some of the older books were pretty hit or miss but I think they have the proven authors working on some very good plots now. The only problem I had with this audio was in the second file, at one hour and twenty-nine minutes in (format 4 I believe). The audio skipped and I missed a little bit of the action, I do not think it was very much but that still disappointed me a little bit.
Marc Thompson is THE single best narrator for Star Wars I have ever heard. His characters are so believable and recognizable. Amazing series and can't wait for the next one.
