Star Wars: The Truce at Bakura | [Kathy Tyers]

Star Wars: The Truce at Bakura

No sooner has Darth Vader's funeral pyre burned to ashes on Endor than the Alliance intercepts a call for help from a far-flung Imperial outpost. Bakura is on the edge of known space and the first to meet the Ssi-ruuk, cold-blooded reptilian invaders who, once allied with the now dead Emperor, are approaching Imperial space with only one goal: total domination.

Publisher's Summary

No sooner has Darth Vader's funeral pyre burned to ashes on Endor than the Alliance intercepts a call for help from a far-flung Imperial outpost. Bakura is on the edge of known space and the first to meet the Ssi-ruuk, cold-blooded reptilian invaders who, once allied with the now dead Emperor, are approaching Imperial space with only one goal: total domination.

Princess Leia sees the mission as an opportunity to achieve a diplomatic victory for the Alliance. But it assumes even greater importance when a vision of Obi-Wan Kenobi appears to Luke Skywalker with the message that he must go to Bakura - or risk losing everything the Rebels have fought so desperately to achieve.

    "Bakura Review"

    Average:
    This book is not necessary to read in order to understand future books. Well written, lacks humor, descriptions of situations gives the listener a great visual.

    "Star Wars continues."
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars the most enjoyable?

    The sounds and thrill of knowing the characters already. Being able to continue the story on and find out the future.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Luke Skywalker! He just continues to evolve in the continuing series of books, of which, there are many-so he retains my interest with each story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Dev Sibwarra's death, after everything he'd been through and the bond growing between him and Luke, this was such a distressing scene.


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

    There were touching scenes between Luke and Gaerial that moved me, and the final goodbye was touching, yet destined both having other fates to live.


    Any additional comments?

    There are now dozens of further books of Star Wars, which covers the lives of Luke, Leia, Han and their families. Some are wonderful, others are mediocre but if you want to know more of the future of Luke and those close to him, you should read/listen to more of them. I now have 60 or more novels of Star Wars and more are being published it seems every moment.
    I do recommend the Star Wars series to those who are true Star Wars lovers, to those who are mere visitors to the stories I suggest "The Truce at Bakura" is a good place to start, it begins after the destruction of the Death Star on Endor so it has immediacy to the movie/book plotline.

    "An okay story"

    This book was just so so. If you must know everything about Star Wars then I guess you'll need to listen to this book, but otherwise I'd recommend skipping it. It takes place right after Return of the Jedi, but unfortunately the story's bland. The conflict's dull in comparison to the epic conflict of the movies, and there's really not any character growth. It's just a Star Wars story, and that's it.

    "Great story line but..."

    Maybe I have been spoiled with narration by Aaron Alliston in the "Fate of the Jedi" series, but the narrator appears to be just "Reading" and not really performing as one would desire of an audiobook. I will continue to listen to this book, but will note the narrator for future titles as someone to avoid if there is another.
