Publisher's Summary

Times are desperate for the Rebel Alliance. Harassment by the Empire and a shortage of vital supplies are hindering completion of a new secret base on the ice planet Hoth. So when Mid Rim merchants offer much-needed materials for sale, Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo lead an Alliance delegation to negotiate a deal.

But when treachery forces the rebel ship to flee into territory controlled by pirates, Leia makes a shocking discovery: The fierce marauders come from Leia's homeworld of Alderaan, recently destroyed by the Death Star. These refugees have turned to pillaging and plundering to survive - and they are in debt to a pirate armada, which will gladly ransom the princess to the vengeful Empire...if they find out her true identity.

Struggling with intense feelings of guilt, loyalty, and betrayal, Leia is determined to help her wayward kinspeople, even as Imperial forces are closing in on her own crippled ship. Trapped between lethal cutthroats and brutal oppressors, Leia and Han, along with Luke, Chewbacca, and a battle-ready crew, must defy death - or embrace it - to keep the rebellion alive.

    "Good Attempt at Similar Voices"

    One of the few books I wish I'd read via the text version. They did a great job of trying to match the voices of the main characters with those in the movies, but I could hear an echo in my head in the proper voices. Reading the text would have given me the experience of hearing it with the real (if imagined) voices.
    Still, a fun book and well done. Loved the sound effects. :)

    Story
    "HORRIBLE first person narration."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Different narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Martha Wells? Why or why not?

    Maybe.


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

    Marc Thompson.


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

    She is TERRIBLE at doing character voices. Great third person narration.


    Any additional comments?

    January LaVoy does wonderful third person narration. I think she is just a good as Mark Thompson. Her attempts at first person voices we're horrible and distracting. Gave up after four chapters. Going to read the book instead.

    "Meh"

    This book focuses on one event through the whole book. It's big on detail, but slow and easy to loose interest in.

    Story
    "Inside the mind of Princess Leia Organa."
    If you could sum up Razor's Edge in three words, what would they be?

    Princess Leia Organa


    What other book might you compare Razor's Edge to and why?

    a lot of the other Han and Leia books.


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

    Makes me feel like Leia is saying it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Han and Leia Strike Back.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks!

    Story
    "Good Story Creative, Fast"

    This story is a fast paced duel between Leia and her enemies no doubts on that and the building tension between Han and Leia is really fun. Neither one knows how to handle the other. An all around good story. I do wish the maybe last third was a little more in depth making a longer story but staying with the depth of the 1st half . I did the audiobook and January LaVoy is an excellent story teller. I wasn't sure about her voice for Han Solo but I gave it a chance and after awhile I was into it, I would love to hear a story with LaVoy voicing the Female Characters and Marc Thompson doing the male, and they can split everything that doesn't fit under male or female. anyway defiantly recommend this book. creative and well written.
