This is another among the solid, but basically middle of the road, Star Wars genre books. The entire "The Old Republic" series, while interesting as independent books, do not lead one to another in a typical series fashion -- each one is centered around new characters at a different point in time. Nevertheless, "Annihilation" does stand well on its own, and I very much appreciated that the main character's background is different from that which is most focused on in many Star Wars books. But it does not approach the epic quality of the more intimately connected series.
As for the narration, Marc Thompson continues to do a top job with Star Wars as always.
Seriously this book is good! Idk why people gave it bad rates. I though it was pure Star Wars the Old Republic and it made me feel like I was listening to someone playing the game!
Drew delivers another excellent character driven story. Marc does a wonderful job with the narration and voices. I recommend this to any Star Wars fan who is currently playing SWTOR. The book adds to the backdrop of SWTOR in additon to adding to my enjoymnet of SWTOR.
I hope Drew and Marc continue their successful and creative collaboration!
