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.

    "Pleasant surprise, best SW novels of late"

    What, no Marc Thompson?!? He pretty much makes or breaks any SW audiobook. He's like that familiar security blanket. And he's dang good.

    But so was January LaVoy. Though she's no Marc Thompson, she rises to the challenge and exceeded my expectations, and quite frankly, I enjoyed her more than other non-Marc Thompson SW narrators. Not only that, it was fitting to have a female narrator with a novel that featured a female Jed'aii front and center.

    Now, the story. I've been quite disappointed with the direction of SW novels as of late. Not enough to turn me away completely, but I think the quality of the stuff coming out lately has not been as great, the overarching story arcs/time frames (The Old Republic, namely) has been lacking for me.

    This has revived my interest. This story is extremely interesting and opened up a whole new door in the SW universe. I still have some unanswered questions on the background (maybe I should read the comic book series) but perhaps as this period in the SW canon becomes more developed (here's hoping...) the answers will become more apparent. But there is a lot of potential in this time period that I am hoping for more to come out...

    "Good but not great."
    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have used Marc Thompson instead.


    Did January LaVoy do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did alight. She's no Marc Thompson though. And to all the people who keep stating she's saying Jedi wrong.. She's not! It's spelled and pronounce different in this book.

    "Sharp writing and a great story!"
    What made the experience of listening to Into the Void: Star Wars the most enjoyable?

    Tim Lebbon's world building and prose. The man can write this stuff!


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

    The whole thing was so good that I can't really select one moment. And I really can't say that about too many recent Star Wars novels.


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

    Nope. She was pretty good. I enjoyed hearing a woman's voice in a Star Wars book with a female protagonist. Marc Thompson is pure awesome and all but this was a nice change. I felt January made it easier to feel like we were inside Lanoree's head.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The climax of the novel was very emotional.


    Any additional comments?

    Lebbon does an outstanding job inter-cutting a flashback of Lanoree's Je'daii training with her brother, Dal, and her pursuit of him 9 years later. It gave the novel a balance and depth that it wouldn't have had had Lebbon simply stuck with the chase and nothing but. It also serves to explain the differences between the modern Jedi and the ancient Je'daii.

    "Not read by Marc Thompson, still very good"
    What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

    I was originally dubious about January LaVoy narrating this over Marc Thompson (who I love), but she really pulls you into the book as much as Marc does for me. Good choice!

    "Good Story and Important Jedi Origin History"

    Finding out details of Jedi History and details about Tython the planet with the earliest Jedi temples was really interesting. Also how the Jedi "Rangers" operated was cool. I am glad to recommend this book

    "Love Star Wars!!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    However, this audiobook was kinda......dry! Story was very predictable......audio narrator was.....ok. But, was hoping for something more "intense" about the early Jed'ia....


    Do you think Into the Void: Star Wars needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes......follow up! Or, write another Pre-Jedi series......

    Story
    "Conflicted"

    First I want to say that I am conflicted on any new EU Star Wars books that are coming out after the Disney buyout. We really don't know if they are signed off on or what the deal is.

    The Good: January LaVoy was a awesome choice for the Voice acting for the book, and she will melt your ears with her awesome voice. I would love for her to do more SW novels.

    * These Je'daii are not your Jedi you know and love. They show there arrogance in the story and how they cross the line, but that is all the matter of perspective right?
    *Some what graphic in fight scenes, this could be a bad also for a SW novel.

    The Bad: Just about everything else about the book.

    *It's to short for such a huge opening of a new timeline of the universe.
    *The whole talking in first person and present tense format is a bit annoying.
    * Introduction of profanity in a cleaver way, you will get the picture.
    *The main character seems kind of off or just boring. Maybe I am being to critical of her, she does love to threaten just about everyone with death that she runs into.

    Story
    "the narrator wasn't as enjoyable as Troy Denning.."

    the story was mediocre at best, often boring in places, and I found myself having to rewinding often because I either tuned it out, or it was a detail that wasn't made completely obvious.

    Story
    "Good, intersting & Jedi isn't mispronounced"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Good story that holds your interest.
    A different interesting view on the Force, it's use & users [I.E. their are no Jedi or Sith].
    The flash backs break up the monotony.

    And if you really think about it: you can see where how the Force is used here by good people, it could be dangerious & even evil.


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

    No... Men & women sound pretty good, i'd give her a 4 - 4.5. Voices do meld together a slight bit thow.

    Jedi isn't mispronounced, its spelled Je'dali & they ARE NOT Jedi :}
