    Two years have passed since Jason Solo, seduced by the dark side and re-anointed as the brutal Sith Lord Darth Cadeus, died at the hands of his twin sister, Jaina, Sword of the Jedi. For a grieving Han and Leia, the shadow of their son's tragic downfall still looms large. But Jacen's own bright and loving daughter, Allana, offers a ray of hope for the future as she thrives in her grandparents' care.

    I got the hard cover version of this book for Christmas and I just haven't had the time to pick it up over the last five months. Audible and an mp3 player finally made it possible to enjoy it.

    This was my first audio book. My biggest concern was narration but Marc Thompson was fantastic and brought great energy to the story. My only experience with Star Wars was the movies and a couple of games. I was aware of the back story but this was my first experience with it as well. While this is a great listen I found myself wondering what happened, how did they get here, to this point I mean. Made me do a little research, only to find out that there are a lot more books to listen to if I want to find out. All in all a fun listen though. Enjoy!

    Luke Skywalker, Jedi Master, has unified the Jedi order into a cohesive group of powerful knights. But as the new era begins, honor and duty will collide with friendship and blood ties. The Skywalker and Solo clans find themselves on opposing sides of an explosive conflict, with potentially devastating repercussions for both families, for the Jedi order, and for the entire galaxy.

    I definitely enjoyed this book but it did leave me feeling like it wasn't all there... all the fantastic descriptions that make Star Wars books so incredible. This is my first experience with both this author and abridged books so I couldn't tell you why, I'm guessing the latter.

    Marc Thompson does an excellent job with narration... exciting listen.
