There can be no surrender.
There will be no mercy.
It’s not just the future of the galaxy at stake -
It’s the destiny of the Force.
In the stunning finale of the epic Fate of the Jedi series, Jedi and Sith face off - with Coruscant as their battlefield. For the Sith, it’s the chance to restore their dominance over the galaxy that forgot them for so long. For Abeloth, it’s a giant step in her quest to conquer all life everywhere. For Luke Skywalker, it’s a call to arms to eradicate the Sith and their monstrous new master once and for all.
In a planetwide strike, teams of Jedi Knights take the Sith infiltrators by swift and lethal surprise. But victory against the cunning and savage Abeloth, and the terrifying endgame she has planned, is anything but certain. And as Luke, Ben, Han, Leia, Jaina, Jag, and their allies close in, the devastating truth about the dark side incarnate will be exposed - and send shock waves through the Jedi Order, the galaxy, and the Force itself.

I'm the most boring person on the planet.
I thoroughly enjoyed the entire Fate of the Jedi series. Marc Thompson is a king among many great performers. If you love the Star Wars saga, you will love this series, too.
Yes. The series continues with the same characters you knew and loved, and introduces a few more you come to really like and love. The definition of the characters, as they've aged, is also a sweet continuation of the many story lines. The only thing I didn't like was there was only nine books. I could have gone on for another two or three easy.
Not until this series. I would put him up in my top three favorites.
The very end was touching.
All I have been listen to so far is Star Wars books and I started listening first with Fate of the Jedi series. Best story told so far from the Fate of the Jedi series and will be looking for more story's written by this author. The narrator, Marc Thompson is brilliant as usual with his dynamic character voices. Thompson has a special way of bringing the story to life inside ones head. The story was overall action packed from chapter one to the end. It did created some inconsistencies from the other books but it also sealed up a lot of holes in other areas of the story. Overall it is a must listen.
The forbidden love of Luke's son, Ben Skywalker and the Sith girl Vistara Kia that was doomed from the beginning.
The narrator, Marc Thompson is brilliant as usual with his dynamic character voices. Thompson has a special way of bringing the story to life inside my head. My favorite character performed by Thompson has to be Hon Solo even though he captured the voice mannerisms of all the main characters, Luke, Lando, etc.
The ending was perfect and left me begging for more.
I like how it used all of the characters mentioned from book one.
Best part was when they were killing off the Sith Lords and High Lords. How casual they were about it, like they did it every day.
Spoilers!!!!!!! When Luke promoted Jaina to Master. I was crying. I wanted to fight for them.
Marc Thompson is brilliant, they writing is great, its the star wars we all know and love. Buy it, read it, love it!
This is not really a review of this book, but I will say that if you have not read or listened this series it is worth the time and the money to get. This is more of a discussion, of names and trying hard to hold on to them. In the last part of Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse, Tenel Ka's daughter makes herself known with pomp and celebration and the announcement of her name with her sir name being Solo. I believe the writer makes a mistake in this part of the story if Tenel Ka's daughter is the heir to the throne and there is lineage to ones royal line and name then it becomes improper for her sir name to be Solo. I know everyone going to say that the Solo name is like a precious jewel and it must be kept. However if we look at from the point view of reality, for example the house of Windsor in Great Britain, is the house of Windsor because of Queen Elizabeth and not her husband whose sir name is Mountbatten or was the same. At any rate the lineage name or heir is Windsor and not some other name. Let me close by saying this, even if people find what I'm saying silly it must be remembered that Tenel Ka comes from a matriarchal society so why would any woman from such place take a man's last name, even if his name is Solo.
I WANT MORE
How all members of the Jedi played important roles vs. just focusing only on Luke.
His ability to capture each character with a different tone, you knew based on the tone which character was speaking.
Marc Thompson is a great voice actor and really tries to make each character stand on their own feet.
First off I am a big Star Wars fan. But to me this book seemed to keep going and going like there would be no end and when the end came you are like wow about time. I think they started off with an interesting concept but book after book seemed to be the same thing.
That he tries to use a different voice for each character.
No I broke it up during travel time to work.
Yes; must read for those who want to follow the continual story of Star Wars.
That the Jedi didn't seem to have it easy, yet they somehow came thru.
Always like his readings. He seems to have the spirit of the characters right on track.
High,great series with a really good ending.And one really can tell there will be future series about Jacen daughter.
When Luke learns about Jacens fall. And the calm and wisdom Luke have thru out the books even in dark times.And the underlying story about Alana and her future.
Many, but i think the story of Vestara was sad even thou she was Sith.
Jedi:Apocolypse falls in the middle of most of my reads and most of my Star Wars Novels. Whle I'm enjoying the story and performance, there is little left that is surprising.
Jaina Solo because she's always seemed the reluctant hero and the most realistic. The rest of the "standard" cast have become little more than a cliche'. My overal favorite characters have always been Boba Fett and Han Solo... Boba has had some further development in some of the series but again in this series has fallen on to the same old...
Marc Thompson is excellent and should be the Voice of Star Wars forever.
Its time for a new series... though I would like to see a greater development of the Sith Lost Tribe, without it being such a cliche of "bad guy" back stabbing. The development of the Sith in the beginning of this series was great, but their rise to power was as ridiculous as their fall was convenient.
Climax fizzled out
By 1/2 way through, the listener is thinking "That's a lot of material to wrap up, I hope they start soon."
The ending needed to have more substance than what it had. Moreover, the ending was not a fitting end to, what is otherwise, a fine series of novels. Without including spoilers the brief origins of the antagonist are quickly swept aside with a reference to an episode of the animated Clone Wars series, which is aimed at young folks and ultimately cheapens the ending.
I was left thinking; "Is that it? Did I miss a chapter? Is there another instalment coming?" Like the heading states; the ending just fizzled out. Much more focus needed to applied to the conclusion of the story.
Han Solo / Ben Skywalker
Over all the series is very enjoyable and Marc Thompson does an excellent job narrating. It's too bad the ending fizzled leaving the listener thinking they missed something.
