Based on the epic videogame from BioWare and LucasArts.
The Sith Empire is in flux. The Emperor is missing, presumed dead, and an ambitious Sith lord’s attempt to seize the throne has ended fatally. Still, Darth Karrid, commander of the fearsome Imperial battle cruiser Ascendant Spear, continues her relentless efforts to achieve total Sith domination of the galaxy.
But Karrid’s ruthless determination is more than matched in the steely resolve of Theron Shan, whose unfinished business with the Empire could change the course of the war for good. Though the son of a Jedi master, Theron does not wield the Force - but like his renowned mother, the spirit of rebellion is in his blood. As a top covert agent for the Republic, he struck a crucial blow against the Empire by exposing and destroying a Sith superweapon arsenal - which makes him the ideal operative for a daring and dangerous mission to end Ascendant Spear’s reign of terror.
Joined by hot-headed smuggler Teff’ith, with whom he has an inexplicable bond, and wise Jedi warrior Gnost-Dural, Darth Karrid’s former master, Theron must match wits and weapons with a battle-tested crew of the most cold-blooded dark-side disciples. But time is brutally short. And if they don’t seize their one chance to succeed, they will surely have countless opportunities to die.

This is another among the solid, but basically middle of the road, Star Wars genre books. The entire "The Old Republic" series, while interesting as independent books, do not lead one to another in a typical series fashion -- each one is centered around new characters at a different point in time. Nevertheless, "Annihilation" does stand well on its own, and I very much appreciated that the main character's background is different from that which is most focused on in many Star Wars books. But it does not approach the epic quality of the more intimately connected series.
As for the narration, Marc Thompson continues to do a top job with Star Wars as always.
Seriously this book is good! Idk why people gave it bad rates. I though it was pure Star Wars the Old Republic and it made me feel like I was listening to someone playing the game!
Drew delivers another excellent character driven story. Marc does a wonderful job with the narration and voices. I recommend this to any Star Wars fan who is currently playing SWTOR. The book adds to the backdrop of SWTOR in additon to adding to my enjoymnet of SWTOR.
I hope Drew and Marc continue their successful and creative collaboration!
