    In barren desert lands and seedy spaceports...in vast underwater cities and in the blackest depths of space...unfolds a tale of good and evil, of myth and magic, of innocence and power. At last the saga that captures the imagination of millions turns back in time to reveal its cloaked origins - the start of a legend - the story of Star Wars.

    Rigg is well trained at keeping secrets. Only his father knows the truth about Rigg’s strange talent for seeing the paths of people’s pasts. But when his father dies, Rigg is stunned to learn just how many secrets Father had kept from him - secrets about Rigg’s own past, his identity, and his destiny. And when Rigg discovers that he has the power not only to see the past, but also to change it, his future suddenly becomes anything but certain.

    Wasn't crazy about some of the narrators, but Stefan Rudnicki was as good as ever.

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

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

    The narrator does an awesome job. I even enjoyed the songs in the book that I always skimmed over.


    Any additional comments?

    Great to listen to since I read the book over 35 years ago.

    The war between the alien hydrogues and the faeros rages, reducing suns to blackened shells - including one of the fabled seven suns of the Ildiran Empire. Instead of protecting themselves, the Ildirans engage in bloody civil war and the many factions of humanity are bitterly divided. Can mankind and Ildirans overcome their own internal fighting to face a deadly new enemy that is ready to annihilate them?

    Joel says: "GREAT Series....Narrator change from Book 4 on"
    "Narrator ruins a good story"
    Overall

    The narrator in this book really kills the series. He did not take the time to listen to the previous books and thus; in my humble opinion, really messed up this one. It took me quite a bit of time to figure out who was talking because the pronunciation of names was changed so much from the first three books. I hope he learned a little something about doing research before just coming up with his own names. The previous books made it clear as to the correct pronunciation of names, but he fails to take it into consideration. Boo!

    Thomas says: "Horrible Quality"
    "What did she say?"
    Overall

    The first half of the book was narrated so badly that I could barely make out what she was saying. Where was the sound editor?

    The story was only mediocre at best. Good versus bad, but you really never figure out whose side anyone is on. The ending was pretty pathetic as well. Can you say "had to stop writing this book because I don't know where it's going?" Maybe the author will figure it out in the sequel.
