This ranks among the top of the books I've listened to. Daniel Davis made this one even better and it already stood tall by itself as a great book.
The story has everything you'd want in a Star Wars book. The back-story on the characters is thorough and quite entertaining. You get a little piece of everyone's story in this book - from Darth Maul, Count Dooku and some other prominent Jedi
I have not but I will now.
I am not that kind of listener but it was very good nontheless.
If you like Star Wars this is the one for you.
Jonathan Davis is ok. But they should have used the same narrator from the Plagueis book. Lots of filler and not enough setting or plot changes. The force user gets shoe-horned in and doesnt really fit.
Sure - its Star Wars. But I wouldnt rush out to do it with this book.
He does a good job - but his range across several characters doesnt have enough change.
I suspect this is some kind of transitional book?... or maybe its just not as good as I hoped it would be. Anyway - I love Star Wars and can forgive a lot but this just seemed to ramble on. The sheer amount of cross plot information left me a bit confused and overwhelmed. I felt like some of the story could have easily been tapered down and made far more simple and to the point. The important things are lost in too much writing. Bouncing from one place to another only to have it support a small bit of plot... meh. I'll wait for the next one and hope its better!
I disagree with the first part not grabbing me. I dig it. There are better outings from Aaron but I do think it was decent and entertaining. Anything involving Dathomir is good in my book.
