i feel like there getting back on track with SW books. the last series was not in depth enough and felt like a cheap pocket book. but i thought this author who writes allot of SW books pulled it back in line in this novel. this series has a little direction now. and im glad they are offering SW books unabridged now.

This one takes a turn from the first two and has a very dark, creepy feeling to it--which works! It's a nice change of pace and gives the story new depth. And the haunting music is really outstanding!
I definitely felt the "hungry purple tentacles" runing up my spine!
Once again, Marc Thompson does a tremendous job narrating. This is not a series to miss!
I am really liking this series of books and this is another gem. Reading some of the older books were pretty hit or miss but I think they have the proven authors working on some very good plots now. The only problem I had with this audio was in the second file, at one hour and twenty-nine minutes in (format 4 I believe). The audio skipped and I missed a little bit of the action, I do not think it was very much but that still disappointed me a little bit.
Marc Thompson is THE single best narrator for Star Wars I have ever heard. His characters are so believable and recognizable. Amazing series and can't wait for the next one.
Book 3 follows well from books 1 and 2, and I'm enjoying most of the different plot lines. I will say that Luke and Ben Skywalker's adventure in the Maw was a little difficult to follow via the audio version, but it basically makes sense.
The story is endless, it sucks you in from the very beginning and leaves you wanting more..
All of it...
He is the voice of these Jedi novels..
Left me needing to get any follow up novels...
Best thing ever!
I love Jaina Solo in these books.
I can't believe how enjoyable it's made the books. I like hearing the different voices and sound effects. Lightsaber fights!!! I'm new to audio books and now I'm addicted, I like listening to it before falling asleep. The Audible app is great for that too.
I am really enjoying this series, it's keeping me interested. I love how it's presenting a whole lot of familiar characters from the past. I can't get enough of these books.
Can't wait for the next one in the series....please get in audio book.
Also - Marc Thompson is the BEST narrator. I totally get sucked into his telling.
I want to be a Jedi like Luke. Heck, even like Ben. This was a great book. I listened in my car as I drove to work and school. Found myself taking the long routes so I can stay in my car longer. Going to listen again on a plane ride across America now.
I've had as much as I can take. The reading of this story with the various character voices has finally worn me down. I should have stopped at Omen but I was so interested in the story that I didn't want to wait to receive the hardback book. For my impatience I was punished. The character voicings are so bloody annoying that it detracts from a good story. Please make it stop! Back to the old fashioned way of reading. Perhaps it is for the best.
I loved every minute of this book. I enjoyed the first book in the series (Outcast) but was deeply disappointed in the second (Omen) however Abyss is by far the best yet in the Fate of the Jedi series. Luke and Ben were written to perfection and their story was my favourite part of the book. We also get to see more depth to Han, Leia, Allana, Jag and Jaina. The story with the Sith had some great character development and it was great to see so much from their perspective and at last we see the backstabbing and treachery that we expect from Sith. Also we get a sinister introduction to a very old and dark enemy that seems to be the key to the entire series. As usual the audio quality and read are superb. I whole heartily recommend this book and hope that the rest of the series can maintain this level of excitement and character development.
"Fate of the Jedi: Abyss"
I have so far really enjoyed the whole Fate of the Jedi series.
I thought Outcast was better than Omen, but if you enjoyed either of the previous you will certainly like Abyss - especially the Luke & Ben Skywalker story thread.
It's really gripping and great fun!
