Publisher's Summary

The war that erupted in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones is nearing its boiling point. The dauntless Separatist forces continue their assault on the teetering Republic as the diabolical triumvirate of Count Dooku, General Grievous, and their Master, Darth Sidious, fine-tune their strategy for conquest. In Episode III Revenge of the Sith the fates of key players on both sides of the conflict will be sealed. But first, crucial events that pave the way to that time of reckoning unfold in a labyrinth of evil.

Capturing Trade Federation Viceroy and Separatist Councilmember Nute Gunray is the mission that brings Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, with a squad of clones in tow, to Neimoidia. Their daring efforts yield an unexpected prize: a unique holotransceiver that bears intelligence capable of leading the Republic forces to their ultimate quarry, the ever-elusive Darth Sidious.

Swiftly taking up the chase, Anakin and Obi-Wan follow clues from the droid factories of Charros IV to the far-flung worlds of the Outer Rim...every step bringing them closer to pinpointing the location of the Sith Lord, whom they suspect has been manipulating every aspect of the Separatist rebellion.

Then the trail takes a shocking turn. For Sidious and his minions have set in motion a ruthlessly orchestrated campaign to divide and overwhelm the Jedi forces and bring the Republic to its knees.

    "Good, could be better"

    Labyrinth Of Evil the novel is fantastic. Labyrinth of Evil the audiobook leaves too many holes to be fantastic. All of the main characters face omissions. Their thoughts are vital to this storyline. Yoda, Windu's and Palpatine's scene are compressed. Yoda's thoughts on the currents of the force are compressed. Yoda's realization that his arrogance has imbued to the Jedi Order a dispiritedness that the dark side of the force is overtaking the Jedi order is gone. C-3P0's inadvertant meeting with the droid soothsayer seemed valuable to retain. I think that Labyrinth of Evil and Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader should have been unabridged audiobooks because of their value to the pre-quel story line. The narrator does an admirable job with all those voices.

    "Fantastic"

    James Luceno knocks it out of the park again!

    Johnathan Davis Willl have you at the edge of your seat in the climax of this book.

    I highly recommend that you pop in the blue ray of revenge of the Sith because this book drops you right at the door step of the beginning of that movie.

    "Abridged"

    This abridged version "reads" easier than the print version. Luceno is a great Star Wars author, but it seems that he gets bogged down in too much setting depth in the book. This audio book has a much better flow. It balances event pacing with character development.

    "Great novel"

    The storytelling is great, it gives depth to the characters and adds a lot of details to the political environment. It is exciting, there's never a boring moment. Jonathan Davies is fantastic as always! I really enjoyed it! This Dark Lord trilogy is a must for Star Wars fans!

    "Casual fan? You'll Love Abridged. Die Hard? Left wanting more"

    Huge SW fan, I've listened to more than 10 SW audiobooks in the past 2 months and haven't been disappointed by a single one. Luceno's other novel, Darth Plageuis, is my favorite and I STRONGLY recommend checking that out because it's just incredible.

    If you're a casual fan who's just trying to fill in the gaps between films 2 and 3, this will suffice. There's a lot of action in the book, and the abridged version covers all the fight scenes, complete with sound effects and all the angsty Anakin-ness you could ever hope for. However, if you're someone like me who is in these books for the long haul, trying to understand characters inner machinations, walking through tactical maneuvers by the Dark Side, you're left wondering why things are moving so quickly. I wanted a better understanding of Dooku's training, of GGs reconstruction by the banking clan, and his training. Just never materialized.

    Full disclosure, haven't read the actual book (love audible because I drive everywhere, and often far distances), so I'm not sure what was cut out

    "Not that great"

    Maybe it was because it was abridged (abridged books aren't that great imo). Maybe it was b/c I had just listened to the masterpiece that is Ep III. Either way, I was not impressed.

    "Always disappointed"

    I want to love Star Wars books. Every three or four years I pick up another recommended book. I always find them to be poorly written and containing references to the original trilogy events that feel contrived.
