The first book in the series felt more like Star Trek than Star Wars to me. This book put everything back on track in the right universe. Darth Malgus was a complicated and interesting character. The action scenes were exciting, especially everything at the Jedi temple. If you are a Star Wars fan, this is highly recommended.
The performance was great, and I kept forgetting I was listening to just one guy reading the story. That there takes some talent.
This audio book went beyond my expectations. For this reason, my desire is for the author and other staff members to create a BIG SCREEN MOVIE from this book. We Star Wars fans would love to know more about the Old Republic.
I knew I would enjoy this book, being an avid fan of Star Wars and SWTOR, but the narrator makes it even more immersive and powerful than I could have hoped. Very well done!
a warrior sith not some weak political minded Sith in a warriors armour. not confused about his place in the world . he follows a warriors code and keeps his word.
YES, the sound effects and even the way Marc Thompson reads, engulfs you into the story way more than paper back could ever do.
The hopping around with the different points of view and then how they tie in together.
The whole book keep you needing more, but if I had to pinpoint a scene it would be the fight in the Jedi Temple.
Yes, I almost did.
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.Through passion, I gain strength.Through strength, I gain power.Through power, I gain victory.Through victory, my chains are broken.The Force shall free me.
Audible is the balm for an itch I can't scratch that sits right between my ears.
Story is unsurprising and a fine listen is you are a Star Wars fan. The narration was good, with each character easily identified. The sound effects and music could get in the way at times, but did add to the story in others.
I would recommend it for Star Wars fans, but for those just after a good Sci-Fi story I would have to say there are countless better options.
Where to start...narration was absolutely perfect again. Great job Marc - besides Marc Thompsone, and jonathan Davis, few narrators are able to consistently take the contents of a novel and make it even better simply by narrative.
story - was just awesome. you have a excellent blend of both action, introspection, character develpment, moral challanges and difficult decisions, all smoothly blended into an intense mixture of both jedi and human actions that made you feel not just for the protagonist but also for the antagonist in the story. I love the fact that unlike in other sci-fi series the bad guys are not made into one dimensional mindless idiots. the trick in the star wars series has always been th elevel and depth of character of all the players, their motives, fears, and idiosyncs are laid out in excellent detail. enough to allow an objective reader draw their own conclusions as to the rightfullnes or wrongfullness of their thoughts, choices and subsequent actions.
this story folows that great example and proves yet again why even if unsavory, the means by whoch the empires swords (the sith) are chosen, honned, sharpened and ultimately used, can be very very entertaining to read.
I truly hope that more books are made featuring the lead Sith in this book as he is already easily one of tehmost interesting villians contrived in star wars to date.
Great book, great narrative, and highly reccomended in my opinion. Your points are not wasted as the force truly is strong in this one :). Enjoy.
