    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.

    "Best way to Follow a Star Wars Novel"

    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.

    For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles' role as his father's enforcer. This time their trip to Arizona is purely personal, as Charles plans to buy Anna a horse for her birthday. Or at least it starts out that way....

    Story

    On the story side it was a great book. Briggs' writing on this one harkens back to the first Alpha and Omega in that its more about the emotional side of the characters than the action. It was great to get a look into Charles' past, and for his memories to be, even for a moment, put out there for the reader to see.

    In terms of performance by the narrator, this was a bit of a let down. Holter Graham usually puts more individuality into the characters, but on this one he just sounded like he was reading a script straight off the page. I don't know whether that's because it was a rushed production, or because he's bored with the series, but this time he dropped the ball for me.

    Luke Skywalker's game-changing destruction of the Death Star has made him not only a hero of the Rebel Alliance but a valuable asset in the ongoing battle against the Empire. Though he's a long way from mastering the power of the Force, there's no denying his phenomenal skills as a pilot--and in the eyes of Rebel leaders Princess Leia Organa and Admiral Ackbar, there's no one better qualified to carry out a daring rescue mission crucial to the Alliance cause.

    Marc Thompson always brings characters to life. Story was ok. Little wishy washy. Unique first person view, which is rare in Star Wars novels.
