    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse to be better than the print version?

    Hard to say, but Marc Thompson is the ultimate for Star Wars audiobooks.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Saba - simply because she's bad@$$!


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    He does them all amazingly - there's no one I can pick over the rest.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No - it's Star Wars - and so well done.


    Any additional comments?

    Ever since Thompson started on the series, I've made it a point to listen to every book - even though I buy the print version too. HE makes the story come alive. I just wish he would go back and do them ALL - especially the previously abridged versions. They'd be worth owning then. Case-in-point: Heir to the Empire. I've read it countless times, but the previous audiobook was next to complete garbage; abridged and sounding terrible.

    I had even said 'I wish Marc would re-do it.'. It was a dream come true and an instant BUY when it was released. His command of the voices and story, along with the superior production and effects would mean that ANY Star Wars story done by this crew would instantly be on my Wish List!

    Former SEAL Michael Harmon, Team Name ''Ghost'', retired for service injuries, is not enjoying college life. But things are about to change, if not for the better. When he sees a kidnapping, a series of, at the time logical, decisions leave him shot to ribbons and battling a battalion of Syrian commandos with only the help of three naked co-eds who answer to the names ''Bambi,'' ''Thumper'' and ''Cotton Tail.'

    I love Ringo's works, and I've waited for Ghost to come out on audio for several years. The quintessential military fiction writer, Ringo does yet another superb job here, even when crossing it with softcore pr0n. The action never let's up, regardless of the scene, and you can just tell this is the start of a great series. A departure from his usual military SciFi, this is a welcome change as it stays in the real world. Books 2 & 3 aren't out yet which is odd, but I have faith they'll come around. Book 2 sets the rest of the series so I can't imagine them not bein recorded. Thanks Audible, John and Baen for making this happen!

    The trichinosis worm is one of nature's most revolting parasites. Certain types of this tiny worm alter a host's DNA by injecting a virus which mutates the reproductive system. This forces the host to bear the worm's young. Typically these worms are never longer than a few millimeters. But guess what? Now there’s a subspecies that's 30 feet long.

    Good first effort into the Edward Lee world by Andy Mack. I've been searching for ANY Edward Lee books on audiobooks (they just don't seem to exist!), and luckily I found this gem. Ed is often over-the-top gross-out just to see how far he can push it, and almost always tells a good story to boot. Slither is actually a little more tame in this regard; I think it can and will appeal to a wider audience than some of Lee's more "extreme" efforts. Andy does a good job of narrating as well, with most of the voices close to what I imagined when reading it (Ruth's the only one I would tinker with slightly - she annoys the hell out of me, but then again... that's the character so it worked!).

    Anyone who enjoys Lee's work should pick this one up, and there's also another in the works (Flesh Gothic, narrated by Mack as well) which I can't wait to pick up as well! For those uninitiated to Edward Lee, this might seem a little edgy, but that's a good thing and I hope this earns Ed some new fans. The only reason I didn't give fifth star is because I reserve those for something so amazing that even *I* was shocked at how well it came off - 4 stars for me is an excellent effort and worthy of a credit to anyone who likes this type of story (officially called "Splatterspunk" and/or "Bizarro").

    Audible, if you're listening, DO MORE OF ED LEE'S WORKS! There's one title I've been searching in vain for - The Bighead - that was actually done in 2008 by Delirium Books for the now-defunct "Horror Mall," by Mark Justice (who still has the raw footage, hint hint!). I cannot locate this ANYWHERE, which in this digital age is ridiculous and slightly unbelievable. It'd be great if someone, such as Audible, would pay for a re-release!
