Not a let down. Often the middle of trio has no real plot and is all set up for part three. This book did an excellent job of creating a unique story and still left me wanting for the next one.
He caries this series well and I look forward to listening to him again.
Bridges the Gap. Between the Darth Bane series and Episode 1 of the movies there is a huge story gap. This book does an excellent job of bridging that gap without closing it.
As a side note pick up the Darth Bane trilogy if you have not. It tells one of the best story arcs in the Star Wars universe. Read them first, but not necessary to enjoy this one.
The book stands out as a moment in itself. Daniel Davis brings a side to this story that I don't Marc Thompson could have (but Marc is still awesome). The dynamic in the telling of most of the story from the Dark Side's point view required a certain maturity, or an old guy's voice. This rendition nailed it!
The author dove deep into how the Sith and Jedi think and feel about the force in a way that had not been conveyed in any other book before. Some SW are fluffy and nothing but action. Darth Plagueis has action and multi layered depth. This is battling to be my favorite Star Wars book of all.
There will be blood....but I suppose that's four words
Vengence is a dish best served often.
Excellent close to the trilogy! There is not a great way to give hints about what happens in book three without giving away plot intricacies. So I'll leave it with this: If you made it this far this book is the best of the three.
Adapting the dark side to be an appreciable path rather than just a choice of evil.
Seriously don't want any spoiler alerts here
As a huge fan of listening to the Star Wars books this reader was an excellent vocalist. Most of the other books are by Marc Thompson, who is awesome. I'm glad to know that they can bring in someone else equally as good.
Peace is a Lie, there is only passion.
The references to 80's pop culture are beyond awesome.
If I told you it would ruin the book. But know this, I really want one. Who wouldn't? You'll get a choice between 100 of them around 67% into the book.
I don't read authors that I am not previously familiar with. After taking a chance on this one, just from reader's comments, I was super pleased I branched out. Do it... just do it.
