    When the Imperial prison barge Purge - temporary home to 500 of the galaxy's most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves - breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a star destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back - bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.

    Morelos says: "Awesome atmospheric Star Wars horror"
    "Star Wars vs Dead Space"
    Overall

    Death Troopers is an odd addition to the Star Wars library. The story takes place far away from the original saga and avoiding the force all together. Instead it focuses on survival horror. If you're a fan of Star Wars and Dead Space you will enjoy Death Troopers.

    Although the ending was weaker than the beginning the narration and ambient sounds are top notch. Death Troopers pleases listeners who are more into a tense listening experience than expanding their facts about the Star Wars universe.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: Darth Plagueis the most enjoyable?

    Star Wars: Darth Plagueis presents the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the wise and the rise of Darth Sidious - how he was found as a youth, raised as a sith and in the end killed his master, Plagueis, in his sleep.The story is woven together with The Phantom Menace and other books, casting more light to some questions and depth to previously portraid events. Very typical of the author James Luceno.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: Darth Plagueis?

    The most memorable moments of the book was Palpatine's emancipation from his family and in the end from Darth Plagueis, both intensified by the excellent narration and sound effects.


    What about Daniel Davis’s performance did you like?

    Daniel Davis's performance was impecable and a welcomed addition to the Star Wars universe which is otherwise dominated by 2-3 recurring narrators. His senior voice gave the audiobook it's rightful arcane tone. A good choice.


    Any additional comments?

    Star Wars: Darth Plagueis is a given choice for anyone interested in the background of Darth Sidious and the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the wise, how he could keep the one's he cared about from dying, but in the end, not himself.

    A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

    Barry says: "One of Koontz' best, entirely enjoyable."
    "My first Koontz"
    Overall

    This was my first experience of Dean Koontz and I was not disappointed. I found the story thrilling and I really wanted to know how it ended. Kudos to Christopher Lane for the excellent narration.
