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.

"Stover fills in the blanks regarding one of cinema's most fascinating villains with respect and relish, providing answers to such questions as why Vader looked so weird and how he became Luke's dad. This is the perfect companion to the blockbuster film." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "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.

    "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.

    "A Star Wars Must Read..."

    What the movie should have been all along. I started the book and couldn't put it down. Matthew Stover filled in the answers that the movie left without remedy. this is a "must read" for every Star Wars fan!

    "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.

    "I thought I knew the whole story....."

    I thought I knew the whole story.....but Matthew Stover's novelization of SITH is rich in detail, subtext and prose. This adaptation of the film is so much more closer to the perfect version of this modern tragedy. Make no mistake, EPISODE III is a tragedy.
    What I truly loved the most about this rendition were the various instances of the author describing how a particular character was feeling or thinking. For example, " This is what it's like to be Annakin Skywalker for now..." I absolutely LOVED this style of describing the character's inner thought process.
    I really enjoyed this novel and have counted it as one of the top SW stories in my collection. if you have not heard the story and are thinking of buying this audio book, waste no more time and purchase it. And you might have already seen the film, but without hearing this version: you truly don't know the whole story!!!!

    "Outstanding!"

    So much more depth than the movie ever hoped to show. Fantastic insight into the characters' minds, and a much more believable version of Anakin's path to the Dark Side. Definitely one of my favorite Star Wars novels!

    Story
    "One of the greatest novels I have ever read!"

    I love to read novels of all types. A few of my personal favorites include, The Great Gatsby, Fahrenheit 451, The Catcher in The Rye, and The Grapes of Wrath. All of these books I consider to be some of the greatest novels ever written, this book is easily in that honorable list. I first read this book in 2013, I had borrowed it from a friend and wasn't expecting much. When I finished the book, I was awestruck at the complexity and depth of the characters, and the richness of the story. It's wonderful blend of beautiful metaphors and gut-wrenching details captivated me (and still does). It's portrayal of man slowly giving himself over to evil, was so realistic and interesting; it truly captures the best emotions and feelings of actual people. This is not just the best Star Wars book ever written. It could be one of the best books over written.
