    Story
    (66)

    Darth Sidious sends his apprentice, Darth Maul, to hunt a traitor down. But he is too late. Sidious' secret plan has already been passed to information broker Lorn Pavan, which places him at the top of Darth Maul's hit list. Now the future of the Republic depends on Lorn and Darsha, a Jedi Padawan on a mission to earn her knighthood. But how can an untried Jedi and an ordinary man hope to triumph over one of the deadliest killers in the galaxy?

    Katheryn says: "Maul story good, sound effects horrible."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Simply put, the effects were horrible...this is Star Wars, and sound boards for it are a dime a dozen, so I was more than a little shocked by the production value...A dirt bike putt-putt sound for speeder bikes? REALLY!? I was honestly unable to immerse myself in this a-book because I kept listening for all of the missused sound effects.


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

    The story in Star Wars: Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter is interesting because it explores Coruscant's lower levels in a way that has not been done yet. The story moved along nicely, and Maul's capabilities in skills other than lightsaber combat are exposed to a decent degree.


    What three words best describe Michael Cumpsty’s voice?

    The narrator, Michael Cumpsty, breathed live into the characters, and delivered the goods in an otherwise mediocre to shooddy Star Wars Production. Michael was able to emote all of the character well, the rogue was rough, Maul was focused and sinister, and the Jedi Padawan character sounded uncertain of her skill, and Jedi-like in her approach to the problems at hand.


    Was Star Wars worth the listening time?

    This book was worth the time and money if you have credits to burn...if you are looking for a big bang for real $$, this is not it.


    Any additional comments?

    I am shocked that George Lucas has not had the sound effects remastered on this audio book yet...only slightly less shocking is that he allowed this to roll-out in the first place.
