    Luke Skywalker, Jedi Master, has unified the Jedi order into a cohesive group of powerful knights. But as the new era begins, honor and duty will collide with friendship and blood ties. The Skywalker and Solo clans find themselves on opposing sides of an explosive conflict, with potentially devastating repercussions for both families, for the Jedi order, and for the entire galaxy.

    Story

    Audible has made it possible for me to get into Star Wars novels again! I stopped reading Star Wars novels because it became to hard for me to follow what was going on. But when someone's reading the novel to you, it makes the exerience much more enjoyable.

    Overall, I like the direction that this novel goes. Jacen's overconfidence in his abilities is very apparent, but not so much that it makes his character one sided. The struggle of the Corellians, and Han's dedication to his homeworld, gives the story an interesting twist, and the tie in's from past novels and material gives this Expanded Universe great depth. The only thing about the plot that I found confusing was how willing Jacen was to listen to Lumiya and except what she had to say.

    The only other real detractor, which everyone seems to agree upon, is the abridgement of the story. It makes things choppy and hard to follow sometimes.

    Overall though, a great story, worth the listen.

    Mercy Thompson’s world just got a whole lot bigger... A collection of all-new and previously published short stories featuring Mercy Thompson, “one of the best heroines in the urban fantasy genre today” (Fiction Vixen Book Reviews), and the characters she calls friends...

    Patricia Briggs never lets down when it comes to her stories, and even though she is a novel writer she is great at short stories. This new collection of Mercyverse stories is a treat for any fan. My one complaint is that they redid the narrations for the old stories. Having listened to some of the older stories in other anthologies, I got use to and really like the narration jobs that were done with those stories, so having to listen to redone narrations was a bit of a let down. When I think of the Alpha and Omega series for example, it is jarring to listen to someone else do the narrations that Holter Graham does. To me, his narrations are Charles and Anna, and while Lorelei King does just fine, its just not the same. But other than that, I enjoy this book immensely.
