    The Sith Empire is in flux. The Emperor is missing, presumed dead, and an ambitious Sith lord’s attempt to seize the throne has ended fatally. Still, Darth Karrid, commander of the fearsome Imperial battle cruiser Ascendant Spear, continues her relentless efforts to achieve total Sith domination of the galaxy. But Karrid’s ruthless determination is more than matched in the steely resolve of Theron Shan, whose unfinished business with the Empire could change the course of the war for good. Though the son of a Jedi master, Theron does not wield the Force - but like his renowned mother, the spirit of rebellion is in his blood.

    What made the experience of listening to Annihilation the most enjoyable?

    Marc Thompson's narration is fantastic as always! The story was actually very entertaining at times it feels like James Bond in the Star Wars universe. I really liked the espionage of Theron


    What other book might you compare Annihilation to and why?

    It's similar to all the Old Republic novels in its feel. Makes me want to jump back on the MMO ASAP!


    What does Marc Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voices are truly incredible. It's hard to believe it all comes from the same man! He is very enthusiastic in his reading and actually acts out the dialogue. I believe what I am hearing and that's the mark of a great narrator!

    For the handful of scattered Jedi, survival is imperative if the light side of the Force is to be protected and the galaxy somehow, someday reclaimed. Yet more important still is the well-being of the twin infants, Leia and Luke Skywalker, the children of Anakin and his doomed bride, Padme Amidala. Separated after Padme's death, they must be made safe at all costs, lest the hope they represent for the future be turned to horror by the new Sith regime, and the unspeakable power of the dark side.

    Would you listen to Star Wars again? Why?

    I have listened to I think 80% of all the available SW Audiobooks and this is my favorite book. I don't know exactly what it is, but I just LOVE it! I got this audiobook when it came out in 2005 and I have listened to it at least a dozen times since then. Whether it was at college, commuting/road trip, or at work this book is just so entertaining. It has everything I love about the movies and what I love about the clone war. The time between Episode 3 and 4 is my favorite time period in Star Wars. I just love this book!


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    When I first. Heard this I couldn't imagine anyone else doing Star Wars books. I love Marc Thompson but Jonathan Davis is fantastic.

    What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it. The author describes this as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's.

    Introducing James Bond: charming, sophisticated, handsome, chillingly ruthless, and licensed to kill. This, the first of Ian Fleming's tales of secret agent 007, finds Bond on a mission to neutralize a lethal, high-rolling Russian operative called "Le Chiffre" by ruining him at the Baccarat table, forcing his Soviet spymasters to "retire" him. It seems that lady luck has sided with 007 when Le Chiffre hits a losing streak. But some people just refuse to play by the rules.

    I love the character and the time. It was written in adds a lot more drama to the story

    The radio dramatisation of The Hobbit became a classic when it was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1968 and it continues to delight today. Tolkien's famous saga, the prelude to the Lord of the Rings, has all the ingredients of fantasy and adventure: dwarves, elves, goblins and trolls, a fearsome dragon, a great wizard, a perilous quest, and a dramatic climax.

    What did you love best about The Hobbit (Dramatised)?

    The adaptation for this dramatization is great, the writing is very well and captures the details of the book while keeping an entertaining pace


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hobbit (Dramatised)?

    I enjoy the music though some of it is repetitive, and I enjoy Bilbo joining in conversation with the Narrator.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I am a HUGE fan of the BBC Dramatization of LOTR with Ian Holm as Frodo. That dramatization is perfection in my opinion, highly recommended!

    So this was a let down to me because it isn't as good as that adaptation, it is a bit unfair to score this poorly based on that, but I had my expectations high.

    Some of the voices really annoyed me too. All the main characters I got used to though. I do like Bilbo's voice a lot, Thorin and Gandalf


    Any additional comments?

    If you are expecting it to be just like the BBC LOTR then you will be disappointed. However I do not regret purchasing this version! Happy 75 years to this story. One of the greatest stories ever told as far as I am concerned.
