    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.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The time period is great, so the reader get's to know what happened between the movies, how the rebels got to where they did. Also exploring the pirate faction is something I enjoyed which is missing from the movies.


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

    Marc Thompson or Jonathan Davis.
    January is good in the narrative but just doesn't have the voice and / or the experience to properly do different characters. She delivers an OK performance on the voices but for me Marc Thompson is the king of Star Wars audiobooks.

    Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There's a bounty on Han's head - and if he can't cough up the credits, he'll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king's ransom. Or maybe a gangster's fortune?

    If you could sum up Scoundrels: Star Wars in three words, what would they be?

    Han Solo's Eleven


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

    Mark Thompson does an excellent performance on all his characters, but my favourite was Lando Calrissian, as he sounded 100% like Carl Weathers including the accent and everything.


    Any additional comments?

    An excellent and exciting story full of twists! I think I'm going to listen to it a 3rd time as well. :-)

    When the Empire threatens the galaxy’s new hope, will Han, Luke, and Leia become its last chance? When the mission is to extract a high-level rebel spy from the very heart of the Empire, Leia Organa knows the best man for the job is Han Solo - something the princess and the smuggler can finally agree on. After all, for a guy who broke into an Imperial cell block and helped destroy the Death Star, the assignment sounds simple enough.

    But when Han locates the brash rebel agent, Scarlet Hark, she’s determined to stay behind enemy lines.

    Dave says: "This IS the Han Solo Book You've Been Looking For!"
    "A true Han Solo story!"

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Han Solo, of course. :-) Even when in doubt, he plays it cool.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the missile gets stuck in the Falcon. I know that Han and Chewie eventually survive as they are in the movies, but I was still nervous whether that thing will blow or not. :-)


    Any additional comments?

    Another 5-star delivery from Marc Thompson. The only weird thing was Chewie's voice. I just couldn't get used to it, not even by the end of the book. I wish they had used the sound of Chewie from the movies, like in most other Star Wars novel I listened to.

    Tassaa Bareesh, a matriarch in the Hutt crime cartel, is holding an auction that’s drawing attention from across the galaxy. Representatives of both the Republic and the Sith Empire are present, along with a Jedi Padawan sent to investigate, a disenfranchised trooper drummed out of the Republic’s elite Blackstar Squad, and a mysterious Mandalorian with a private agenda.

    Would you listen to Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance again? Why?

    I enjoyed listening to every second of this audiobook. The story is great with a twist that is new - at least to me - in this universe: Jedi and Sith, Smuggler and Headhunter all working toghether for the same goal.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I very much liked that basically all situations were presented from the perspective of more characters, which I find rare. Gives a fuller experience.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't have a favourite scene, but sure would like to try the 'Reactor core'. :)
