Exciting and engaging. This book does an excellent job of explaining the events leading up to Episode I. It takes you through the rise of Darth Plagueis (Hugo Dumas) as well as his apprentice Darth Sidious (Emperor Palpatine). Do it.
I loved every second of this audiobook. The story itself was wonderfully written and had me hooked from the beginning until the end. The narration was perfect, he painted a beautiful picture of each character and made you feel apart of every conversation. The added music and sound effects were outstanding, I haven't listened to an audiobook that has had those added features, they really set the mood and put emphasis in all the right places. I listened to this book over the course of 2 days and can not wait to get into another!
Great Book. Some recent Star Wars books for me have been for "junior readers" (my fault) This book-Great look at an important part of the Saga. Mature. Thanks
this is a great story it leads perfectly into the prequel movies and answers a lot of questions that weren't previously answered in the movies ,it's a great listen and James luceno does a amazing job
Every single part of this book is well written and every single part is important. The reading by Daniel Davis is phenomenal; he definitely has a knack for it. It strengthens the Star Wars saga and, in my opinion, is essential for Star Wars canon (even though I don't think it is anymore). I must have listened to this more than 10 times over the past few years.
