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.

Hard to say, but Marc Thompson is the ultimate for Star Wars audiobooks.
Saba - simply because she's bad@$$!
He does them all amazingly - there's no one I can pick over the rest.
No - it's Star Wars - and so well done.
Ever since Thompson started on the series, I've made it a point to listen to every book - even though I buy the print version too. HE makes the story come alive. I just wish he would go back and do them ALL - especially the previously abridged versions. They'd be worth owning then. Case-in-point: Heir to the Empire. I've read it countless times, but the previous audiobook was next to complete garbage; abridged and sounding terrible.
I had even said 'I wish Marc would re-do it.'. It was a dream come true and an instant BUY when it was released. His command of the voices and story, along with the superior production and effects would mean that ANY Star Wars story done by this crew would instantly be on my Wish List!
This book does a GREAT job wrapping up the 9-book story, and was very difficult to put down! Highly recommend the entire series!
Marc Thompson has to be one of the most engaging narrators I've listened to - he does a terrific job with the various voices, to the point that you can clearly tell who the myriad characters are simply by the voice he's given them. He is among the best narrators out there, and Star Wars is fortunate to have gotten him for this series.
Most definitely one of those books I wanted to listen to non-stop from start to finish!
The most memorable moment has to be Luke meeting with the spirits of Jacen and his wife Mara. I only wish the visit would have gone on a bit longer, but the story had to progress to Abeloth and the final confrontation.
Marc Thomson is always a versitile narrator. His voices and character inflections are some of the best Ive ever had the pleasure of listening to.
The End is comming...
Overall the final book of this series was an excellent read. The story arcs of both Ben and Vestara kept me on edge to the very end, the eventual closing of the story left room for a Luke-Mara connection or a whole new adversary to combat. Allana as a character is growing in her own right and her beyond her years wisdom will make interesting planting ground for future books. Luke, Han, Leia always seem to survive the worst events in the star wars universe but I've noticed in this book a shift from the
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.
The fast past battle and many enjoyable characters makes it a nice story.
The piecing together of the final battle was epic.
The story was very rich and the performance worth lisoning to.
I liked the hon and laya addition to the story.
Can't wait to see if there will be another book to the series.
This book series didn't need to be 9 books, but overall I was quite satisfied. You probably could have told this story in 5-6 books.
Abaloth is a tremendous foe, loved how she morphed into several different beings.
I want more adventures with Ben, Luke, and Vestarra!
I have loved this whole series and all of it has been time well spent. This specific book, though, I'm not so sure. It is a much different approach as most of the book takes places over the period of a few days and then jumps forward dramatically in parts. The ending, yeah, not so great.
The ending was so poorly done that it made me mad for even completing the series. It was as if the author hit their word count and gave up writing as the story just randomly — and very anti-climatically (is that a word?) — stops. This huge series marching towards a very big ending just falls apart and wraps up. I was VERY dissappointed.
Come on, it is Marc Thompson... all of them. :-) I do really like his take on Ben Skywalker, though.
Think about writing the author a letter of disappointment.
The whole series is great and is worth a listen. Just expect to be disappointed by the ending.
last book of this series delivered, Marc Thompson is great, the best at letting you what character is talking without saying their name. If only he went back to earlier books of Legends, ( none of this new Canon stuff ) the books would be longer and almost worth using your monthly choice on or possibly buying. if old audio books remain 2 or 3 hours long , sell them in groups to make it worth the price.
"Amazing end to an amazing story"
There is nothing I can say about this book except I loved it.
Marc Thomson IS Star Wars Audible
Loved the Star Wars franchise for years, and this collection on Audible had made it possibly to rekindle that passion on the drive to work. Worth a listen for both new and old fans of the franchise 😊
"New to the Expanded Universe"
Really Great End
I am new to the Eu even though I am a life long Starwars fan. Working my way through the Fate of the jedi series was very enjoyable and I couldn't wait to get onto the next book.The voices are great impersonations of the established cannon characters and you soon forget they are not the real actors.
"Great ending for a great saga"
As always Marc Thompson is a fantastic narrator and really brings these novels to life.
great listen, can't wait till the next saga.
In my opinion I think Disney may choose this story line if they are to stay true to the expanded Star Wars universe... Fingers crossed
