    The impossible has been accomplished. The Lord Ruler - the man who claimed to be god incarnate and brutally ruled the world for a thousand years - has been vanquished. But Kelsier, the hero who masterminded that triumph, is dead too, and now the awesome task of building a new world has been left to his young protégé, Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and to the idealistic young nobleman she loves.

    Story

    One of my favorite things about Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series is how real the characters feel. As the reader you feel like you can truly relate to them and their personalities and problems. Many fantasy books contain a cool story and a lot of action, but in this series, while the story and action are amazing, it is the people that you fall in love with.

    Once the Sith order teemed with followers. But their rivalries divided them in endless battles for supremacy - until one dark lord at last united the Sith in the quest to enslave the galaxy and exterminate the Jedi. Yet it would fall to another, far more powerful than the entire Brotherhood of Darkness, to ultimately realize the full potential of the Sith, and wield the awesome power of the dark side as never before.

    Story

    Even though the book is focused on the bad guys of the star wars universe, I felt myself cheering for bane throughout. His character is extremely believable, and it was easy for me to even relate to him. I love how bane, while physically imposing, overcomes most of his obstacles with cunning and treachery. There is a decent amount of action, but most of the book really is about bane coming to to know himself and understand the dark side. It was an intriguing and engaging listen.

    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.

    If you could sum up Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse in three words, what would they be?

    Action, Endurance, Entertaining


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how finally the Jedi are victorious against Abeloth and the Sith. Luke had defeated her many times during the series, but she kept coming back. It is good to have her finished off.


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

    He is wonderful as always.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the ending to the series, but there were some details that were just left kind of hanging. I feel they should have fleshed out more of why Abeloth is the way she is. You learn her backstory, but her backstory is really short. Also a new sith is introduced at the end, and you don't even learn his name even though he fights alongside Luke at one point. I just feel that the book just ended abruptly and did not flesh out some details I still had questions about. But it was a great listen and i loved the book still.

    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.
