    Overwhelmed by the ships and clones at Thrawn's command, the Republic has one last hope: sending a small force, led by Luke Skywalker, into the very stronghold that houses Thrawn's terrible cloning machines. There a final danger awaits, as the Dark Jedi C'baoth directs the battle against the Rebels and builds his strength to finish what he had already started: the destruction of Luke Skywalker.

    I loved this book. It was well thought up until the randomness of the ending. It's still a great Star Wars read.

    The Empire stands at the brink of total collapse. But they have saved their most heinous plan for last. First a plot is hatched that could destroy the New Republic in a bloodbath of genocide and civil war. Then comes the shocking news that Grand Admiral Thrawn--the most cunning and ruthless warlord in history--has apparently returned from the dead to lead the Empire to a long-prophesied victory.

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

    I love the talon Kardde voice. Also I like the Han, Luke, and leia have the same voice across his books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked it so much that I nearly downloaded the abridged version while waiting for audible to add the unabridged version.

  • The Godfather

    Story

    More than 40 years ago, Mario Puzo wrote his iconic portrait of the Mafia underworld as told through the fictional first family of American crime, the Corleones. The leader, Vito Corleone, is the Godfather. He is a benevolent despot who stops at nothing to gain and hold power. His command post is a fortress on Long Island from which he presides over a vast underground empire that includes the rackets, gambling, bookmaking, and unions. His influence runs through all levels of American society, from the cop on the beat to the nation's mighty.

    "Love the story!"

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

    Joe Mantegna brings an excellent voice to help this book come to life. It also helps that he was in godfather 3.


    Any additional comments?

    This book wins the prize for most graphically pointless scene in written history thus I give it four stars. You will learn more about surgery than what needs or be know. Other than that it's awesome.

    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.

    If you’ve listened to books by Troy Denning before, how does this one compare?

    This is Troys weakest work that I've read. I've loved his work in LotF and FotJ but this one falls flat


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

    Marc knocks it out of the park again.
