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.

Leads up to what I expect to be an awesome ending. The narration is amazing as always from Marc and he helps set you right in the fray with his great impersonations of the various characters.
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......
Sure. Enjoyable story, complicated, LOVE Marc Thompson.
When Vestara kills . . . spoiler. It really surprised me.
Great series. Hate to come to the last book.
Star wars books aren't the best for relistening
Always does his books justice, I'm sure that's why they keep him
When VistaraStar gets caught by Ben writing fake letters to her father
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.
surprising long tradition
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.
Luke was cool and collected.
The revelation that the Jedi was moving off of Corscant
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?
Excellent performance from Marc Thompson. Loved some of plot lines of this book and fast forwarded through other sections.
- 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
- 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.
