I enjoyed this series immensely! I loved listening about characters I watched in the 1970's and learning what happened to them after episode VI. I read the Thrawn trilogy years ago and very much enjoyed it. The Fate of the Jedi series is just as good as The Thrawn series. If you loved the original Star Wars movies, I suspect you will enjoy The Fate of the Jedi series! Mark Thompson does a remarkable job! I wish he narrated every Star Wars novel!
I understand the want for the hero to win in a story. these books are great, narrator awesome, but the out come is always the same even through IMPOSSIBLE odds there is no real strife. Legacy of the Force was a much better series even though the outcome at the end was the same
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.
