    On the Outer Rim, the planet Lanteeb has no strategic value, no political power, and one enormous problem: It has been invaded by an emboldened Separatist Alliance. To find out why, Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi have snuck onto Lanteebe and now look oblivion in the eye.

    Have you listened to any of Jeff Gurner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Meh, I love his Obewan, but it pierces into other character voices, Marc Thompson is the standard bearer, but I can deal with Gurner.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm wondering if the author had a word count quota, there were so many alliterations, it got annoying and then distracting. Plush pleasurable palisades, costly clouded confusion, deep darkening dimples, bereft broken beginnings, gaggle of grubby, it got a bit ridiculous. Other than that, nice pass of time.

    It's kill or be killed in the space penitentiary that houses the galaxy’s worst criminals, where convicts face off in gladiatorial combat while an underworld gambling empire reaps the profits of the illicit blood sport. But the newest contender in this savage arena, as demonic to behold as he is deadly to challenge, is fighting for more than just survival. His do-or-die mission, for the dark masters he serves, is to capture the ultimate weapon: an object that will enable the Sith to conquer the galaxy.

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

    Adult, SW, Finally!


    What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

    Excellent, loved him in Snow Crash also


    Any additional comments?

    Man on man, this book rocks, its the first maybe second that has what I feel is more of an adult slant to it and i could not have been better in my mind. More like this please. After Red Harvest I was kinda like eh but it was an interesting twist in the SW univierse, after this book, I'm realing for more Dark side stories from this guy (Joe Schreiber) Seems telling SW stories with a dark side bent is his niche in this universe.

    On the planet Tython, the ancient Je’daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force - and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je’daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy. Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je’daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency.

    What aspect of January LaVoy’s performance would you have changed?

    Shes no Marc Thompson, but it was cool as non Thompson Star wars stories go


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope

    I almost tossed my phone out my car window ( I listen in the car mostly ) with how this story ended and came rushing here to post a stark raving mad review then reread the stories description and realized it was a 'book 1'. Here's hoping that book two further explains or at least picks up on the all the open tangents that this book left. I was literally jaw dropped by the way it ended, not so much in the specific actions, but how many loose ends were left untied.

    The only problem i really have with the story over all is it didn't really leave me with a great yearning to know more, sure if they produce more of this line I'll buy to finish or view further along the story line, but I'm not clamoring for more out of the gate. It was just barely interesting enough to make me come back for more, Not like Maul:Lockdown, which had so many twist and turns but wrapped up nicely and still had me wishing there was more at the end.

    I figured this book would just wrap itself up and end nicely, but it ended on an opening which didn't at feel succinct to the story it just dragged me through. Something happens at the end that you would think would be the main characters primary focus after what shes just had to do and the first thing she does is leave the planet?!? Really... Pick this up only if you have a few credits lying around and you've read/listened to pretty much everything else (which is where I am - with the unabridged SW versions anyway)...

    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?

    Would you listen to Scoundrels: Star Wars again? Why?

    Interesting plot lines, some a bit obvious but never-the-less good listening.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Scoundrels: Star Wars?

    When you find out the Fettman was involved all along!


    Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Thompson's performances are what initially got me interested in audio books. His ability to grasp the movie characters voices in incredible, You feel as if you are listening to the characters from the movies!


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

    I laughed at parts and some make you a bit misty


    Any additional comments?

    Only thing i didn't like was noone from the 'good' team died. Which I know is cliche for the series of star wars but come on, at least 1 persona should have could have died without ruining the franchise line :D
