    Two years have passed since Jason Solo, seduced by the dark side and re-anointed as the brutal Sith Lord Darth Cadeus, died at the hands of his twin sister, Jaina, Sword of the Jedi. For a grieving Han and Leia, the shadow of their son's tragic downfall still looms large. But Jacen's own bright and loving daughter, Allana, offers a ray of hope for the future as she thrives in her grandparents' care.

    "Star Wars: Millennium Falcon"
    Overall

    Marc Thompson is great as always. I could listen to this guy read the back of my cereal box. As for the story. Come aboard for the journey, not the destination. Resign yourself to being content with the disjointed meanderings of the author. The conclusion, much like this review, is lack luster. Still, beats the heck out of listening to some blow hard disk jockey during the commute.

    Times are desperate for the Rebel Alliance. Harassment by the Empire and a shortage of vital supplies are hindering completion of a new secret base on the ice planet Hoth. So when Mid Rim merchants offer much-needed materials for sale, Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo lead an Alliance delegation to negotiate a deal. But when treachery forces the rebel ship to flee into territory controlled by pirates, Leia makes a shocking discovery: The fierce marauders come from Leia's homeworld of Alderaan, recently destroyed by the Death Star.

    Rup says: "Good book, but wrong choice of narrator"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Different narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Martha Wells? Why or why not?

    Maybe.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of January LaVoy?

    Marc Thompson.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    She is TERRIBLE at doing character voices. Great third person narration.


    Any additional comments?

    January LaVoy does wonderful third person narration. I think she is just a good as Mark Thompson. Her attempts at first person voices we're horrible and distracting. Gave up after four chapters. Going to read the book instead.
