The narrator did a great job emerging the listener. The overall plot and pacing was a little underwhelming. The fact that it's Star Wars kept me interesting in terms of je'daii history.
It wasn't an awful story or anything but it was so far removed from anything I identify as Star Wars. Maybe someone who just wants some ancient history of the Star Wars universe would enjoy it.
Sure it talked about the force often and there were space ships but if you replaced a few words it could have just been any sci-fi story.
Very good at inflection from male to female characters no issue with her performance at all.
I found the main character specifically and the Je'daii in general very unlikable. As long as it served any of their purposes go ahead and destroy people's property, torture them for information and murder them. It's all good...because the Je'daii's purposes are so noble all the time. To paraphrase Emperor Palpatine from a later era "...all those who gain power fear to lose it". I just never read/listened to a Star Wars novel where I was rooting for the protagonist to lose more than this book.
An interesting story. I'm rummaging my mind for a more in depth description, but seriously the whole time I read this book I was uninterested, bored, and waiting for a scene to be over with so they can move on with the story.
LaVoy's performance has nothing to do with the overall dissatisfaction I have for this book.
The author is talented in describing scenery.
If it wasn't for the fact this was a star wars book, I would of never even finished it.
I really enjoyed this story. Lanoree is a powerful jed'iia and it was fun following her journey learning about the earlier days of the force and Tython. January LaVoy was excellent in narration of all areas excluding the male parts. Her voice was perfect for Lanoree, unfortunately, her male voices sounded like stuffy nosed teenage punks. It was tough at times following make dialog and I found myself having to refers several times. Otherwise this audio book was great and worth the read!
