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. 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.

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.

    "Good start to new series"

    Glad to finally see unabridged books from star wars. Would love to see them go back and redo all the abridged books and make unabridged versions. This is a good start to the series and another great job by Marc Thompson.

    "A Good start"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars to be better than the print version?

    Marc Thompson, the music and sound effects always add something to it. I read the ebook before so I'd forgotten most of what I read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I'll always be a Luke/Leia/Han/Lando fan, but Jag is becoming Cool and Jaina is rising to prominence. Interestingly enough, the young versions of the rogues and the Darkmeld folks are in "Scoundrels" and having just read that book and then listening to this one was quite a rewarding thing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The sending off scene where everyone says good bye to Luke. Choked up. Just sayin.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Didn't laugh or cry, but I did get that guttural response to injustice. That "are you kidding me?" feeling when the Jedi are getting persecuted. That is different for a SW book! This is not for the Happy-story-only crowd.


    Any additional comments?

    SW books is like reading about people I grew up with. Sounds sappy but that's why I keep coming back.

    "An interesting story and good set up for future"

    It has been a long time since I read Start Wars books, but I was looking for a relatively simple and short story with a lot of action, and this did not disappoint. I really enjoyed the the voices (pretty close to the voices in the movies) and the background music and sound effects were pretty cool. I enjoyed Han's irony, Luke's calmness, and Lando's smoothness.

    Perhaps one of the best things about this book is that it makes you want to read the next book.

    Story
    "Okay Star Wars book."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Unless it pays off in later books, the Lando/Kessel storyline didn't interest me much.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have lost the Kessel story arc, unless it pays off in later books, it was only a device to keep Han and Leia in the book.


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

    No I haven't listened to him before that I know of.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Only because it was Star Wars, yes, but otherwise, I would wait until DVD.


    Any additional comments?

    From what I have read, the Fate of the Jedi series gets very good, but this is only a mediocre outing. I honestly got bored at a few points. I do like the production that goes into the Star Wars books, and Thompson's performance was good, along with certain elements of the storyline (Luke and Ben's "investigation") so that alone is worth the cost if you are a Star Wars fan and want to start off from the beginning of this series.
