This book series didn't need to be 9 books, but overall I was quite satisfied. You probably could have told this story in 5-6 books.
Abaloth is a tremendous foe, loved how she morphed into several different beings.
I want more adventures with Ben, Luke, and Vestarra!
I have loved this whole series and all of it has been time well spent. This specific book, though, I'm not so sure. It is a much different approach as most of the book takes places over the period of a few days and then jumps forward dramatically in parts. The ending, yeah, not so great.
The ending was so poorly done that it made me mad for even completing the series. It was as if the author hit their word count and gave up writing as the story just randomly — and very anti-climatically (is that a word?) — stops. This huge series marching towards a very big ending just falls apart and wraps up. I was VERY dissappointed.
Come on, it is Marc Thompson... all of them. :-) I do really like his take on Ben Skywalker, though.
Think about writing the author a letter of disappointment.
The whole series is great and is worth a listen. Just expect to be disappointed by the ending.
last book of this series delivered, Marc Thompson is great, the best at letting you what character is talking without saying their name. If only he went back to earlier books of Legends, ( none of this new Canon stuff ) the books would be longer and almost worth using your monthly choice on or possibly buying. if old audio books remain 2 or 3 hours long , sell them in groups to make it worth the price.
Good moments in this series. Beginning books dragged a bit but luckily Marc Thompson was there to keep you engaged.
I enjoyed this book very much but I did feel that between this one and the previous one there was a bit a story that was lost the story concludes excellently it's well-written well told.
I binge listen to audio books faster than others can binge watch Netflix.
This is more of a review for the entire series rather then just this one book.
I found the entire story quite well done and that the different authors did a great job keeping everything flowing. I enjoyed it quite well and found the banter between Luke and Ben to be a fun playful relief when everything seems to be falling apart around them yet father and son can still be a father and son,learning from one another, disagreeing with one another, and playing/jesting with one another.
This series also shows how weak the force users of this time have become both Sith and Jedi are compared to the Old republic. Now not every Jedi has every force ability. Unlike in the old republic where Satele Shan survived a fall from near orbit heights onto Coruscant while holding on to another person and getting away with some light bruises and scrapes. Now Jedi and Sith can hardly do a 10 meter jump or landing, I believe they mention this in the first or 2nd book I listened to them all back to back so can't quite remember. Not saying this is a bad things but its quite different from the generations before.
The ending of this book and by that I mean the last 2 minuets or so drove me bonkers haha. Classic leave you guessing and wanting more. With that don't hold your breath on more coming any time soon though. With Disney taking over the next series to follow this has been canceled :(
The struggle the Jedi had extinguighing evil, and how Luke dealt with the Sith. He knew they had to work together, but used wisdom in his dealings with them.
Marc never disappoints.
