    I like Star Wars, Foundation series, Redwall Series, Bloody Jack series, and westerns for fiction. In nonfiction, I like books about Catholic theology, American history and government, and economics.

    "Luke falls in Love!"
    Would you listen to Star Wars again? Why?

    I love Star Wars, and so I have read or listened to a lot of the books. I plan to work my way through the rest. In this regard, the audio versions allow me to get through the stories faster.


    If you’ve listened to books by Barbara Hambly before, how does this one compare?

    This was the first Barbara Hambly story I have listened to. It was more of a science fiction book than one of political intrigue. It wasn't my favorite SW book, but I still am glad I listened to it.


    Which character – as performed by Anthony Heald – was your favorite?

    I liked Callista the best. The love that developed between Luke and Callista was the best part of the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I don't like to read or listen to a book in one sitting. I like to read a little, reflect, read a little more, and reflect a little more. In this way I savor the book.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was a stand-alone story, but it was also the first book in the unofficial Callista Trilogy. The abridgment was a little severe on this. I wish they had included more details from the print version. But all in all, I am glad I listened to this. The Callista romance was a good story line for Luke.

    Story
    "Bad job on abridging"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Keeping the story tight by not cutting out of the book vital parts.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Probubly another starwars book, I'll try to go for something unabridged this time. Definatly a bad expirience with abridged books this time around.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Nice music, very good reading speed, clear voice. At times, the book jumps ahead on the story as it is abridged, but the performer reads like it is the same scene as before, making the book hard to follow.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I'd like to see it in an unabridged version as the story is promissing but can't bother to read it if I can't follow the characters and their individual stories.


    Any additional comments?

    I love all audible starwars books for their phantastic sound effects.
