    The overthrow of the Republic is complete. The Separatist forces have been smashed, the Jedi Council nearly decimated, and the rest of the Order all but destroyed. Now absolute power rests in the iron fist of Darth Sidious - the cunning Sith Lord better known as the former Senator, now Emperor, Palpatine. But more remains to be done.

    Story

    I'm impressed by the quality of Randomhouse Star Wars productions and this one is not the exception. Though the story may not be as fantastic as other tales in the same universe, is a compelling one and well written.

    But it is the great narration by Jonathan Davis that made me keep listening through the audio book... it certainly is a pleasure. Consider having this book in your library.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Several people had recommended the book, and well, you can't beat the price, so I had to download it, sync to my iPhone and play it through the home theater speakers with my wife... we were both laughing hard, and crying at the same time since it's the same old story with our daughter!!!

    If you have a preschooler, and don't mind occasional swearing, you must listen to this!!!

    The era of the Old Republic is a dark and dangerous time, as Jedi Knights valiantly battle the Sith Lords and their ruthless armies. But the Sith have disturbing plans - and none more so than the fulfillment of Darth Scabrous’s fanatical dream, which is about to become nightmarish reality. Unlike those other Jedi sidelined to the Agricultural Corps - young Jedi whose abilities have not proved up to snuff - Hestizo Trace possesses one extraordinary Force talent: a gift with plants....

    Story

    As a horror novel, I feel that Red Harvest doesn't work in the same sense as Death Troopers did.

    But don't get me wrong, it still is one of the best Star Wars novels I've ever encountered... lots of great action, suspense, drama... but, not horror... Give it a try, you won't regret it, but definitely, if you have missed Death Troopers, go for it!

    As ruthless apprentice to Darth Vader, Starkiller was mercilessly schooled in the ways of the dark side, commanded to exterminate the last of the purged Jedi Order, and groomed for the ultimate Sith power play: assassination of the Emperor. He served without question, killed without remorse, and lost his heart without warning to beautiful Imperial fighter pilot Juno Eclipse, never suspecting that he was just a tool in the schemes of his masters - until it was too late to escape their lethal betrayal.

    Story

    Jonathan Davis shines while narrating, but not much can be done about the weak story... while the original Force Unleashed was a good story full of plot twists, revenge, betrayal and adventure, this sequel reads as just traveling from point A to point B, with nothing more than select appearances from established characters... plus, from the ending of the novel it's implied that a last sequel (hopefully) is due. I hope that they polish that last one a bit more...

    When the Imperial prison barge Purge - temporary home to 500 of the galaxy's most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves - breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a star destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back - bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.

    Story

    Three words: Star Wars zombies. Not else to need saying. But hey, since I'm already here, I can tell you that this is a great story, you are truly scared and eager to know what the character's outcome will be. And let me tell you, the story is centered around two main characters from the movies, plus some likeable new ones... and while you are sure the movie characters will survive, nothing is set in stone for the new ones. This is a great work of art, and the general ambient from the production is magnificent. Even the chapter transitions are sure to make you jump off your chair. If you like Star Wars get this book. If you like horror, get this book. Now!

    Across the galaxy, the Clone Wars are raging. The Separatists, led by Count Dooku, the onetime Jedi and now secret Sith Lord, continue to press forward, and more and more worlds are either falling, or seceding and joining the cause. Under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, the Republic heroically battles on, championed by its huge army of cloned soldiers and their Jedi generals.

    Story

    It is incredible how Karen Traviss took a decent movie into a great story, providing insight on the less known characters, specially the clones that are her specialty. Even though you may know the outcome from the movie, you are sitting on the edge of the chair because of this masterful adaptation. And not only the story, but the general production of the audiobook excels at conveying you are in the Star Wars universe. Jeff Gurner is a superb narrator and his voice work is astonishing. I highly recommend this book.
