    If you could sum up Star Wars: Darth Plagueis in three words, what would they be?

    Vivid, Original, Epic


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Darth Plagueis was most interesting to me. He was this mysterious figure mentioned in Revenge of the Sith. James Luceno took a few lines of dialog from the movie and created an powerful, mad genius, who delved headlong into a quest for immortality and who hand picked and trained Palpatine to control the galaxy.


    What about Daniel Davis’s performance did you like?

    The pace of his read was great and his Palpatine voice was pretty spot on.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Rise of Darth Sidious


    Any additional comments?

    Their were so many amazing scenes that my mind was seeing during this story. Done right, this would make an amazing movie.

    What began as a quest for truth has become a struggle for survival for Luke Skywalker and his son, Ben. They have used the secrets of the Mindwalkers to transcend their own bodies and speak with the spirits of the fallen, risking their very lives in the process. They have faced a team of Sith assassins and beaten the odds to destroy them. And now the death squad’s sole survivor, Sith apprentice Vestara Khai, has summoned an entire fleet of Sith frigates to engage the embattled father and son.

    Story
    What did you like best about Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Allies? What did you like least?

    The Jedi/Sith alliance tested against Abeloth battle was the highlight. There was a very long build to get to the most interesting part of the story.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I thought there would have been more interaction/confrontation with Luke, Ben and the Sith.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Marc Thompson's Luke voice is pretty good, but his Ben Skywalker voice was kind of irritating. While reading another one of these stories I wouldn't have imagined Luke's son to sound annoying, kind of bratty.


    Could you see Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Allies being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not really. There are so many good Star Wars stories out there. This one didn't strike me as one of the best.


    Any additional comments?

    I picked up this one after I finished Darth Plagueis. It was a tough act to follow. Everything about the Plagueis audio book was intense and vivid. An amazing story. This one seemed campy in comparison. It got me through the last leg of my road trip and last hour or 2 were pretty cool.
