At this time, I have both read this book and listened to it. I love the different accents Marc Thompson gives the characters. I think I do like the audio version more.
The first, sort of, action scene where Theron steals the Black Cipher. It was a really fun part of the book.
While my favorite character is Theron (how can he not be!? He's the son of the 2 most freaking awesome characters ever!!!), I love the way Thompson preformed Teff'ith. I love her accent and the way he makes her sound. Not much different from the way I read her, but definitely gives more life to the character.
Star Wars meets 007 in this action adventure!
Again, this is the best Star Wars I have ever read. It was extremely fast paced and was filled with both intense action and some family drama. I suppose I am used to reading a series, but this book just blows every other single Star Wars book out of the park!
This is where the story of Fate of the Jedi really picks up! No more seemingly random side-stories! It is a very intense story and is my favorite Star Wars so far!
Vestara Khai. She reminds me so much of Mara Jade. I love how Golden portrays the character here. I don't want to ruin anything, but I think she will be the most important character in this series. I can't wait to see how her story turns out.
Hmmm. I liked the way Thompson portrays Ben. He really gets the whole adolescent thing. I also, strangely, like the minor character Wynn Dorvan. There is a twist with that character in this book and I loved how it was done.
"This is when everything changes" or something along those lines, cause this seems to be the pinnacle point in the series.
Fantastic book. LOVE IT! I can't wait for the next one!
The abridgement sounded like it was SO compressed. I know that that is the point, but it took SO much away from the story.
This series of books is one of the best from the Star Wars cannon.
It depends. This Narrator wasn't too good with this title, but I'd be willing to give him another try I guess.
Nothing. I would have added a ton more. Basically, I was expecting this to be more like the book. Other abridgements I have listened too have basically turned a full book into a 2 hour version, but this was not the case here. It was butchered.
Don't Listen to it. Read it. Much better. Don't want to? Forget about it. Just not worth it in this case. Try another series.
