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.

    "Great book"
    Would you listen to Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Ascension again? Why?

    Star wars books aren't the best for relistening


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Vistara


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

    Always does his books justice, I'm sure that's why they keep him


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

    When VistaraStar gets caught by Ben writing fake letters to her father

    "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

    "When do we get the last book?"
    Any additional comments?

    I love this series and the narrator is the best I have ever heard in any audio book. But I have to ask when is Audible going to get the last book in the series? There is a fate of the Jedi Apocalypse audio book narrated by Marc Thompson on Amazon, when do we get it here?

    "Average at best"

    Excellent performance from Marc Thompson. Loved some of plot lines of this book and fast forwarded through other sections.

    Likes :
    - Abaloth visits Lost Tribe's Home world was excellent but way too short. Author missed a great opportunity here.
    - Epic Space battle involving Dalah and Jag.
    - Gavar Khai , Vol and other Lords are always good.
    - Nasty interrogation robot


    Dislikes:

    - Is Vestara good or bad? Enough already! Send Ben and Vestara to summer camp for duration of the series.
    - Jedi running around looking for ship should be edited out as it did nothing for the plot. Jedi could have been on vacation for all that matters and would not have affected out come.
    - No battle strategy/tactics used by Jedi or Sith for that matter. Run into battle and then run away.
    - Author's grossly underused Khai and Grand Lord Vol..two of my favorite characters.

    So far, and the in the galaxy, far far-stuff really works for me in the "Fate of the Jedi" series. I've listen to all of the squeals and I like all of them! Good stuff and I'm hoping more of them will come ASAP!

    "Many Events Here!"

    This one is a big set up for the next and moves very quickly only criticism is that this one could have been drawn out more. Very good and a must read for the series!
