    When Han and Leia Solo arrive at Lando Calrissian’s Outer Rim mining operation to help him thwart a hostile takeover, their aim is just to even up the odds and lay down the law. Then monstrous aliens arrive with a message, and mere threats escalate into violent sabotage with mass fatalities. When the dust settles, what began as corporate warfare becomes a battle with much higher stakes - and far deadlier consequences. Now Han, Leia, and Luke team up once again in a quest to defeat a dangerous adversary bent on galaxy-wide domination.

    What made the experience of listening to Crucible: Star Wars the most enjoyable?

    Marc Thompson I love the way he reads the book and how he brings the characters to life. I like the audible books because you get a feel of the action and he seems you are part of the story and you are more aware of the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All the old characters was back together and I was glad to see new characters. The story was good and I was kind of glad they was fighting a new foe instead of the just the Sith.

    The Sith was present and this will strengthen the story and I hope it will lead to another story. Han, Leia, and Luke are older and the children are older also I think this is how the saga shall proceed.


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

    Action and excitement he makes you see and feel the story. The special FX are also good they help you experience the story better.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laugh at some of the scenes and I cried when I thought that Luke or Leia may not have made it. I felt sorry for some of the other characters too.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was good but they were a little off about Mortis and I think that could have been done a little better. But since I have been following Star Wars so long and I have seen the Clone Wars series it explain it better in one of their episode and the Dawn of the Jedi series by Dark Horse comics explains it better and you can just start putting all the pieces together. But I really enjoyed the book and I was glad that it was set after The Fate of the Jedi I hope that will be more stories In the future to build on the younger characters and other Jedi working together to make the Jedi more stronger.

    The destruction of the Death Star by the Rebel Alliance was a decisive blow against the Empire, but Palpatine and his monstrous enforcer, Darth Vader, are no less of a threat. The brutal extermination of Alderaan not only demonstrated the magnitude of their murderous power, but served as a chilling testament to their resolve to crush the Rebel uprising. Standing against them, Skywalker, Solo, and the Princess remain uncertain opponents. Luke is gifted and brave, but unschooled in the power he possesses.

    What made the experience of listening to Allegiance: Star Wars the most enjoyable?

    Marc Thompson I love listening to his voice and he brings the characters to life. I have read it once but I have listen to it twice and will listen to it again.


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

    When Mara Jade and Vader had words at the end of the story and I think her next mission is the "Choices of One" with the same characters in that story. I hope they will put the "Choices of One" on audio and I have read that book also.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    Mara Jade and Han Solo.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Han felt that Leia may really care for him aboard the falcon after her rescue.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is exciting and I enjoyed reading the book but listenings to it is so much awesome than just reading it. I read it so I can get the characters names in my head and I like to see their names in print before i listening to the book.

    On the planet Tython, the ancient Je’daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force - and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je’daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy. Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je’daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency.

    What did you love best about Into the Void: Star Wars?

    I liked the flashs backs when she was training as a Je'daii with her brother and the story was pretty good. The story is good and Lanoree was conflicted for the love of her brother and what he has become. Keep in mind this is the beginning of the Je'dii era and you have to crawl before you can walk.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lanoree she is a strong person in statue and personality and I like Tre also.


    Which character – as performed by January LaVoy – was your favorite?

    I felt she did an excellent job with the main character and it is good to have a female voice if your main character is female. The word Je'daii will sound different than the word we have grown so familiar with Jedi. I would buy another book performed by January Lavoy she is good and with time she can get better.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried a little because of the way she felt about her brother and she could not believe what he had become now to the every end.


    Any additional comments?

    I think readers should give this series a chance this is the beginning of a new era. Their era is a lot different from the one we have become use to. There is a part in the book where Lanoree have a dream of a weapon made with a blade of light. In my opinion the author started the book out correctly and should develope it into the Jedi we know today. I also have the Kindle version and read it first before I listen to the book because the characters are new and I want to see their name written so I would know the character I was listening to. Also in the Kindle version there is a short story with Lanoree in it that is good.
