    Story

    So I've never written a review before but just wanted to respond to the whiner who says that they should drop music and sound effects from SW audio books. I absolutely love that they include music (especially) and SFX in SW audio books. It's what makes them so much better than other AB. It can send chills down my back when big moments are happening in the book and an appropriate piece of John Williams score is used to amplify the action or emotions.
    On another note, the narrator was pretty good although I think my all time favorite is Alexander Adams reading Clock of Deception. He does the best Palpatine/Sidious. I really like this readers young whiny Palpatine. Not what I expected from the most powerful Sith ever but it really parallels Anakin at the same age.
    Going back into Cloak of Deception, Shadow Hunter and The Phantom Menace from another angle is absolutely brilliant. It shines a whole new light on the those events. I've waited since Ep. 3 for this book and it didnt' disappoint on any level. Thank you James Luceno for bringing all the stories that have been floating around in my head together in one great book!!
