Publisher's Summary

How long can the Jedi remain in power? How far will the Sith go to rule supreme? What chance do both stand against Abeloth?

As Luke and Ben Skywalker pursue the formidable dark-side being Abeloth, the Lost Tribe of the Sith is about to be sundered by an even greater power - which will thrust one Dark Lord into mortal conflict with his own flesh-and-blood.

On Coruscant, a political vacuum has left tensions at the boiling point, with factions racing to claim control of the Galactic Alliance. Suddenly surrounded by hidden agendas, treacherous conspiracies, and covert Sith agents, the Jedi Order must struggle to keep the GA government from collapsing into anarchy.

The Jedi are committed to maintaining peace and ensuring just rule, but even they are not prepared to take on the combined threats of Sith power, a deposed dictator bent on galaxywide vengeance, and an entity of pure cunning and profound evil hungry to become a god.

More in the Fate of the Jedi series we have. And listen to all of our Star Wars titles you can!

    "Greatest Narrator of all time!"

    I love all things Star Wars, and I've listened to every audiobook available, but Marc Thompson makes the difference. His ability to audibly define every single character is superb!

    "Marc Thompson. Enough said."

    This book could suck and it would still be good due to Thompson but it doesnt its a good follow up to the last one and sets a good pace for the rest in the series. I hope these authers are thanking Marc for the performances he does. Makes these books so much more enjoyable.
    Thanks Marc!

    "Vol you fool you."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Ascension to be better than the print version?

    I would due to the voice acting which is top noch.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Ascension?

    Where Vol mentally duesl with Abeloth.


    Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have. All excellent. This still proves he's at the top of his game.


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

    Not really.

    "ENOUGH WITH THE CAFF ALREADY!!!"

    Ok, The series is pretty good overall, my biggest disappointment is all the wasted time talking about caff and sani-steams. As far as I know, in the SW universe caff DOESN'T EXIST!!! Blue milk, jawa juice, and yes even the sonic screwdriver (nice Who reference) are fine but all the HOURS spent looking for, asking for, making, serving, drinking, whining about not having CAFF really gets OLD really quick!!! And are all the references to taking showers REALLY NECESSARY?? SERIOUSLY, how many times in episode 1-6 do you see the characters taking showers and drinking coffee?? IT DOES NOT ADD TO OR MAKE THE STORY BETTER OR MOVE THE PLOT ALONG AT ALL, SO ENOUGH ALREADY!!! Yes, all beings clean themselves, eat, poop, and procreate, but unless it is an integral part of the story, can't we just assume that it happens and get on with it?? I mean if there is a particular scene where the characters are having dinner, that leads to drinks, and then to a little gratuitous procreation, then maybe a little more in the sani-steam THEN by all means write it in.......but this isn't a boring episode of seinfeld so how about a bit more action, and a LOT LESS superfluous bullshit......

    "An exciting Star Wars book to listen to"

    Just finished this book and all I can saw is WOW.
    The writing and the voice acting by Marc Thompson is superb.

    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.

    "good, but 'forced'"
    Any additional comments?

    I felt the beginning of this book was great. Well done and solid. The ending was starting to feel strained in how it tried to integrate story elements for the next novel. It just felt like a series that had done so good in keeping other character's point of views in mind just suspended all of that at the last stretch to get through the story and force events into place. Marc thompson is always awesome, and i did like this story until about the last quarter of it. But you have to go through it to get to the last book.

    "Intriguing Storyline Helped by Great Narration"
    If you could sum up Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Ascension in three words, what would they be?

    surprising long tradition


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story clung to the tradition of Star Wars, but was not afraid of going a bit darker. This series is not as dark as some others out there, but it was not afraid of killing when necessary for the story to be complete.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    Luke was cool and collected.


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

    The revelation that the Jedi was moving off of Corscant
