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.

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!
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.
Just marathoned the fate of the Jedi over the last week an a half and oh my did I end on a clifhanger. But Golden has made a very good setup novel for APOCALYPSE
I would due to the voice acting which is top noch.
Where Vol mentally duesl with Abeloth.
I have. All excellent. This still proves he's at the top of his game.
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.
Great story, and Marc Thompson is always the best. But had some audio issues with this one.
Tried downloading multiple times but there seem to be audio issues with certain parts of the book. In the middle chapters, the audio would cut out at the beginning of every major paragraph. It would be fine for about 2 minutes, then certain words were barely understandable. Have had previous issues like this, not sure if it's the recording or the delivery of the book to my phone.
First audio book I've heard by Marc, and i loved it. Have read the book once before but forgot a lot of the events and his performance had me waiting for each new chapter. Well be purchasing the next one as soon as possible.
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.
