Into the Void: Star Wars: SW: Dawn of the Jedi | [Tim Lebbon]

Into the Void: Star Wars: SW: Dawn of the Jedi

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.

Publisher's Summary

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. The leader of a fanatical cult, obsessed with traveling beyond the reaches of known space, is bent on opening a cosmic gateway using dreaded dark matter as the key - risking a cataclysmic reaction that will consume the entire star system. But more shocking to Lanoree than even the prospect of total galactic annihilation, is the decision of her Je’daii Masters to task her with the mission of preventing it. Until a staggering revelation makes clear why she was chosen: The brilliant, dangerous madman she must track down and stop at any cost is the brother whose death she has long grieved - and whose life she must now fear.

    Story
    "Battered Person Syndrome"
    What disappointed you about Into the Void: Star Wars?

    I deplore reading about feeble Jedi in the Star Wars franchise; especially those who succumb to rock throwing on multiple occasions throughout the book. Their exploits become mundane and tedious to a reader who has experienced the likes of the Darth Bane Trilogies.

    This book can be summed up to a devoid Jedi with "Battered Person Syndrome" having difficulty in dispatching an abusive and contemptuous sibling.

    "This book is truly void"
    What disappointed you about Into the Void: Star Wars?

    I was truly excited when I found out a new Star Wars book was released, but after listening to it for a while I found that the writer took too many liberties to make a true star war book.

    Language is important when read or listened to. A Books it suppose to be something that allows the reader to use their own imagination to develop the world that is being presented. It looks like Tim took a bunch of star wars ideas and put them together not understanding star wars future history, poorly done.

    Language is important but Tim thinks that we should throw in 3rd grade gutter language to spice things up forgetting that most parents won't let their kids read things like this. Another thing Tim does not understand is that a poor writer uses gutter language to fill in spots that they can not write in a better way to let the imagination of the listener or reader do for themselves.You can always tell poor writers by amount of cursing and sex in their books. They used canned saying so they increase their word count to meet publishers requirements.

    Excellent writers don't use canned gutter to fill in their books, they create an image that lets the person that likes gutter thoughts continue to their own world while letting the person that does not like gutter thoughts create their own world.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tim Lebbon again?

    No, the man fills his books with canned gutter and I don't talk it or want to read it


    Would you be willing to try another one of January LaVoy’s performances?

    No, she is not animated enough


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    If you want to listen to traditional star wars history and flow, wait for someone else to finish their book, don't buy this one

    "the narrater"

    The story is a little slow but ok, the way she says Jedi irritated me tremendously, I keep thinking I was not lisioning to a sci-fi book instead of a star wars book

    Story
    "Boring and Terrible"
    Would you try another book from Tim Lebbon and/or January LaVoy?

    Maybe


    What could Tim Lebbon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not have January LaVoy narrate this...add more sound effects,....make it a book you want to listen to and use your imagination..


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

    Marc Thompson


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Yawn


    Any additional comments?

    This star wars book might as well of been a pirate book...no light sabers...just swords...wish washy characters that you don't care about...boring.

    Story
    "January LaVoy"
    What disappointed you about Into the Void: Star Wars?

    The most disappointing part about this book was the narrator January LaVoy she cannot pronounce Jedi,not being able to pronounce Jedi seeing this is a Star Wars book is a huge deal.how the producer did not catch this is a mystery .This makes this book unbearable to listen to.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Completely


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger and severe disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    She needs to research and find out how to pronounce things or a producer should explain to her how to pronounce Jedi. I have never written a review like this I don't feel good about it but I also don't like wasting my time with something I enjoy.

    Story
    "a very clever story"
    Where does Into the Void: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Book 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    mid to high


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    i can't say that i have a favourite character, but they are significantly different to the shall we say modern day Jedi.


    What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    January is a new reader for the Star Wars extended universe. it's fitting that she reads a book set in a time when there are none of the usual characters you would expect to see in a star wars story. I would have to compare this story with another story where January reads with well known characters in it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes but i found it quite hard going at first so i had to spread it over multiple sittings.


    Any additional comments?

    this story is definitely worth a read. especially when you look at the attitudes to the light and dark sides of the force from then and make coparisons to the republic and beyond era's. most interesting indeed.

    "Sadly lacking as a Star Wars book story wise"
    What disappointed you about Into the Void: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Book 2?

    This book is just rather badly written. It also takes bits from the Star Wars universe witch weren’t around at this time throwing caos to the Star Wars Cano.
    Characters are sadly lacking in depth and personality.

    it sad as an avid Star Wars fan both films and expanded universe this pre Jedi error is ripe for exploring with less restrictions compared to the rest of the books as not much has been written about this particular time in the Star Wars vers.
    Tim Lebbon had endless possibilities before him and yet he chose this drivel to present to us the reader. I much prefer the comic series of dawn of the Jedi. Sadly this is in my mind the Weakest of all the Star Wars books that I have had the pleasure to read & listen to
    .


    What was most disappointing about Tim Lebbon’s story?

    it was porly written, Characters were lacking in substens and the 2 that i found my self wanting to actualy know about seemed like foot notes who both end up dead.
    over all i felt rather detached from the story.
    Also the "bad guy" wasn’t bad in actual fact I kind of wish he had killed our main character Lanoree Brock and at the same time wipe the Jedi out as in this story there is little to like about them. All I can say thank got this wasn’t the first of the films other wise the Star Wars we all love would not be around


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    the only bites i realy enjoyed were the bref bit with Tre or Dal


    What character would you cut from Into the Void: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Book 2?

    Ok so Tre, I wouldn’t cut this character even thaw they seemed almost pointless to the story arc witch is sad as Tre was the most interesting character in the hole story apart from Lanoree's brother Dal, despite the lack of character work. Tim Lebbon does virtually nothing with Tre just puts him slightly in the for ground only to kill both Tre & Dal off, yet as I said before this character was the most interesting and could have had so much done to them. It seams a rall shame.


    Any additional comments?

    As a big fan of the Star Wars universe and all expanded universe I have to say I as rather disappointed by this tail. The characters were lacking as was the story. much prefer the comic version. It’s a shame as Tim Lebbon had a Compleat new slate to work from so he could have taken it almost any were instead we got this drab excuse for a Star Wars tail

    Story
    "As usual - Outstanding!"
    What did you like most about Into the Void: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Book 2?

    I was a bit dubious downloading this as it was book 2 - but as with most of these books you dont miss out too much! I am looking forward to Book 1 being released here but this doesnt detract from this outstanding story! set before pretty much any of the star wars books out there it is a more - human- version of star wars. Outstanding story read perfectly by the author with the usual mix of star wars sound effects and musical scores - I highly recommend this!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Into the Void: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Book 2?

    Listening to the differences in the early jedi philosophies - very different and interesting.


    Have you listened to any of January LaVoy’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    First time I have listened to this reader but she was very good!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes if I could have I would have (much like all the star wars ones)


    Any additional comments?

    I would like book 1 to be released here but love book 2 as well!
