Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Outcast

After a violent civil war and the devastation wrought by the now-fallen Darth Caedus, the Galactic Alliance is in crisis and in need.

But even more critical, and far more uncertain, is the future of the Jedi.

Publisher's Summary

After a violent civil war and the devastation wrought by the now-fallen Darth Caedus, the Galactic Alliance is in crisis and in need. From all corners, politicians, power brokers, and military leaders converge on Coruscant for a crucial summit to restore order, negotiate differences, and determine the future of their unified worlds. But even more critical, and far more uncertain, is the future of the Jedi.

In a shocking move, Chief of State Natasi Daala orders the arrest of Luke Skywalker for failing to prevent Jacen Solo's turn to the dark side and his subsequent reign of terror as a Sith Lord. But it's only the first blow in an anti-Jedi backlash fueled by a hostile government and suspicious public. When Jedi Knight Valin Horn, scion of a politically influential family, suffers a mysterious psychotic break and becomes a dangerous fugitive, the Jedi become the target of a media-driven witch hunt. Facing conviction on the damning charges, Luke must strike a bargain with the calculating Daala: his freedom in exchange for his exile from Coruscant and from the Jedi Order.

Though forbidden to intervene in Jedi affairs, Luke is determined to keep history from being repeated. With his son, Ben, at his side, Luke sets out to unravel the shocking truth behind Jacen Solo's corruption and downfall. But the secrets he uncovers among the enigmatic Force mystics of the distant world Dorin may bring his quest and life as he knows it to a sudden end. And all the while, another Jedi Knight, consumed by the same madness as Valin Horn, is headed for Coruscant on a fearsome mission that could doom the Jedi Order and devastate the entire galaxy.

    "Great star wars story"

    This is a great story, and the way is narrated make you think you are actually seeing all the characters from the movie.

    I like it a lot!

    "Fantastic continuation of the Skywalker story."

    Can't wait to finish this series. Ben really started to grow on me in this novel. Very excited to start the next book! Highly recommended to fans interested in what Jacen Solo learned and experienced in his travels before becoming Darth Caedus.

    Story
    "It's like a Clone Wars cartoon"
    What did you like best about Star Wars? What did you like least?

    I was overall unsatisfied with this story. It felt like an episode of the SCI Clone Wars. It felt overall pointless. Minor grievances among too-relaxed jedi. Rather short and uninteresting.


    What could Aaron Allston have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I was left wondering what the point was at the end of the book. I know there are a lot more in the series, but I do not think I will continue since the first did not grip me.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    He had a lot a voices. But I could have done without his kid mimicry.


    Was Star Wars worth the listening time?

    No.

    "Very Good."

    The narration is excellent and Thompson really recreates the Star Wars characters.
    The musical accompaniment adds to the book incredibly.
    I enjoyed the story, it built quickly and holds the action all the way until the end. It is a great read.

    "I liked it well enough."

    There are too many stories going on at once. I would have just stuck with one and gone with it. Most likely i wont read the rest of the series.

    Story
    "Not my favorite Star Wars novel."
    What did you like best about Star Wars? What did you like least?

    The story was too predictable. I did not enjoy it all. The only thing I liked was the end.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Aaron Allston? Why or why not?

    No. Writing style was boring and unimaginative.


    Did Marc Thompson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The story was narrated well, but the voices were to far from the original characters that I found myself not buying into the story because of it.


    Could you see Star Wars being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The political drama involved was overwhelming and brought the story down. Not enough action for a Star Wars novel I thought.
