    What did you love best about Star Wars: Darth Plagueis?

    While this was more detailed and not as fast paced as most of the SW books I have "read", it goes in line with the scheming nature of both Plagueis and Sidious.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: Darth Plagueis?

    The escape from his planet in the Infiltrator.


    Have you listened to any of Daniel Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Good performance, I enjoyed it thoroughly.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When each apprentice evaluated it was time his master was ended.


    Any additional comments?

    Interesting to see the force created origins of Anakin.

    When the Empire threatens the galaxy’s new hope, will Han, Luke, and Leia become its last chance? When the mission is to extract a high-level rebel spy from the very heart of the Empire, Leia Organa knows the best man for the job is Han Solo - something the princess and the smuggler can finally agree on. After all, for a guy who broke into an Imperial cell block and helped destroy the Death Star, the assignment sounds simple enough.

    But when Han locates the brash rebel agent, Scarlet Hark, she’s determined to stay behind enemy lines.

    Dave says: "This IS the Han Solo Book You've Been Looking For!"
    "Contrived characters."

    What did you like best about Honor Among Thieves? What did you like least?

    Good overall story, but having Firefly's "Badger" and what seemed like the "Grand Naegis" from Star Trek in there was pretty lame.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The next SW Unabridged book available.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The "Grand Naegis" voice and the portrayal of the bounty hunter in what was so obviously "Badger" from Firefly inspired.


    Do you think Honor Among Thieves needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Some elements of the plot and book were good, but I really was disappointed by this one.

    In the stunning finale of the epic Fate of the Jedi series, Jedi and Sith face off - with Coruscant as their battlefield. For the Sith, it’s the chance to restore their dominance over the galaxy that forgot them for so long. For Abeloth, it’s a giant step in her quest to conquer all life everywhere. For Luke Skywalker, it’s a call to arms to eradicate the Sith and their monstrous new master once and for all. In a planetwide strike, teams of Jedi Knights take the Sith infiltrators by swift and lethal surprise.
