Publisher's Summary

The turning point for the entire Star Wars saga is at hand.

After years of civil war, the Separatists have battered the already faltering Republic nearly to the point of collapse. On Coruscant, the Senate watches anxiously as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine aggressively strips away more and more constitutional liberties in the name of safeguarding the Republic. Yoda, Mace Windu, and their fellow Masters grapple with the Chancellor's disturbing move to assume control of the Jedi Council. And Anakin Skywalker, the prophesied Chosen One, destined to bring balance to the Force, is increasingly consumed by his fear that his secret love, Senator Padme Amidala, will die.

As the combat escalates across the galaxy, the stage is set for an explosive endgame: Obi-Wan undertakes a perilous mission to destroy the dreaded Separatist military leader General Grievous. Palpatine, eager to secure even greater control, subtly influences public opinion to turn against the Jedi. And a conflicted Anakin, tormented by unspeakable visions, edges dangerously closer to the brink of a galaxy-shaping decision. It remains only for Darth Sidious, whose shadow looms ever larger, to strike the final staggering blow against the Republic...and to ordain a fearsome new Sith Lord: Darth Vader.

    "WOW"

    This book was just as great as the prior books in the series. I cannot wait until I can read the rest of the books. The voices were great and pace at which it was read was just perfect. A must read for all Star Wars fans.

    "Best one in the series"
    If you could sum up Star Wars Episode III in three words, what would they be?

    character building explanations


    Any additional comments?

    My least favorite movie of the series but my favorite book. Great character building. Great story, you really feel what Anakin is going through. The actor sucked.

    "Awesome sound effects to go with a great reading."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If they like Star Wars, then yes. In a heartbeat. The story itself is good, and the audiobook is superbly read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how the author fixed some of the movie's problems. His prose is a bit flowery at times, but I think it fits the epic feel of Star Wars. All novelizations should be this good.


    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Davis tells the story wonderfully, doing everything one would expect from a first-class reader. On top of that, the audiobook includes Star Wars theme music, sounds for blasters, lightsabers, and spaceship fights, along with machine-like enhancements for the voices of robotic characters (C-3PO, Grievous). I think they even brought in other voice actors for supporting roles. As far as readings go, this is the best one I've ever listened to.


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

    I very much liked the scene where Palpatine revealed himself to Anakin.

    The backround sounds, the narrator and story was fantastic and I highly recommend for sci-fi and star wars fans.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith?

    When Anakin turned to the dark side.


    What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

    Everything!


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

    It sent shivers down my spine for most of the story.

    "Far better than the movie."
    Where does Star Wars Episode III rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Quite high, in my personal opinion. Definitely in my top five.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The descriptions of the events that took place. Strange thing to say, I know, but in the film, everything just sort of HAPPENED. You don't get much more context than you need to see progression take place. Contrary to the movie, however, the novelization is able to go more in-depth with each character's motives, actions, and environment, and Stover's superb writing helped as well.


    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His performances of the book's characters were very convincing. He shows variety in his range and a talent for bringing life to the pages of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    For any Star Wars fan, this is a must-read. Or listen. Pick one. It's masterfully written and read much the same way.

    "A great listen"

    I recommend this to all Star Wars fans. If you felt let down by episode III you need to listen to not read this book. Unconstrained by movie run time you start to truly see the decline of the Republic and Anakin.
