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.

    "A Must Read for any Star Wars fan"

    I don't know what is better about this book - the writing or the voice acting by Marc Thompson. Marc Thompson always brings an A+ effort, not only changing his voice to reflect the character that is talking but the known characters (Luke, Leia, Han, Lando, etc) and are always consistent & sound great for those none regular cast (Allana, Tenel Ka, Sith characters, Ves).
    Highly recommend this entire series - plus it's the whole unabridged book.

    "Not bad"

    Pretty light entertainment. Nothing to deep, doesn't take itself to seriously. Well read

    "Liked the story, did not like the reading"

    As an on again off again reader of Star Wars fiction (and an avid fan of the movies) I was intrigued by this book. I wish I read the book. The story was very engaging and left me looking forward to the rest of the series. The reading of some of the characters was so bloody annoying that it made getting through the book difficult. The children are voiced like annoying Disney or Nickelodeon characters; Lando sounds ridiculous; Han, Leia and Luke are poor attempts to sound like the originals; and voicing the news anchor to sound like Tom Brokaw was a terrible choice.
    My critical point about the story itself - Is it necessary to constantly reference the movies? It seems to me that this story would have moved along without those references and been interesting in and of itself. I think I will get the hardcover version of the next installment.

    Story
    "Good, but not as good as the Thrawn Trilogy"

    Unfortunately, I started this series with the most recent book, Apocalypse, so I'm aware of some of the underlying mystery. Still, even though this is a more character-oriented book (versus action-oriented), you still wonder what some of the motivations are behind decisions that are made, which is a little frustrating. That said, there is enough intrigue going on that I'm going to keep reading on to the next book. If it is "similar" to this one ... I may not read all of them. ("Read" = Listen to ... of course.)
