Publisher's Summary

Forty years after the Battle of Yavin, a dangerous new era in the Star Wars epic begins: the revelations are shocking, the stakes desperate, and the enemy everywhere.

As civil war threatens the unity of the Galactic Alliance, Han and Leia Solo have enraged their families and the Jedi by joining the Corellian insurgents. But the Solos draw the line when they discover the rebels' plot to make the Hapan Consortium an ally, which rests upon Hapan nobles murdering their pro-Alliance queen and her daughter.

Yet the Solos' selfless determination to save the queen cannot dispel the inescapable consequences of their actions, which will pit mother against son and brother against sister in the battles ahead. For as Jacen Solo's dark powers grow stronger under the Dark Jedi Lumiya, and his influence over Ben Skywalker becomes more insidious, Luke's concern for his nephew forces him into a life-and-death struggle against his fiercest foe. And Han and Leia Solo find themselves at the mercy of their deadliest enemy: their son.

    "Great Because of Sounds and Music"

    Having read lots of the Star Wars books, and sometimes getting bored in the more daunting parts, I really enjoyed this audiobook because of the rich sound effects, the wide range of well-selected John Williams music, and altered pacing. This, combined with the narrator's many affected voices, make the story much more exciting for me.

    "Very well done! A great series continues!"

    Very well done for a Star Wars audiobook. Even though it is abridged, the 6 hour run-time leaves enough material to make this audiobook entertaining. That said, you can still notice gaps where, I assume, material was cut out for the abridgement. This can be annoying after a while. I won't beat around the bush, I loathe any abridgement and I would encourage people to complain to the publisher so that they will begin releasing unabridged versions of these books. Other than that, this book was excellent. Marc Thompson is one of the most talented narrators that I have heard. It is a pleasure to listen to him. The different character voices that he assumes throughout the book are executed flawlessly and I had to keep reminding myself that it was the same person speaking. The writing, sound production, and music were all top notch. I would give this 5 stars if not for the abridgement.

    One last thing, stay away from any of the star wars audiobooks that are less than 6 hours in length. They are so butchered by the abridgements, that they are not worth your time or money. Quite a few of these are narrated by Anthony Heald and he is just plain awful. I found this out the hard way. Just remember, Anthony Heald = extremely poor narration. Jonathan Davis = Extremely good narration. Marc Thompson = Outstanding narration.

    "Abridgement Not Worth It"

    I am disappointed in Del Rey that they have put this series out in such a butchered, abridged format. Entire chapters and story points are missing from this abridgement which are very jarring if you have read the book. Star Wars fans expect a lot, and we didn't get it from these abridgements. I was actually hoping I could stop reading the actual books and just listen to the audiobooks because my reading time is limited. But, after listening to this one and seeing how much they left out, I won't be doing that. I am glad to see they have come to their senses and done unabridged audiobooks of the Fate of the Jedi series. When I get done with actually reading Legacy of the Force, I will listen to those audiobooks. But, I won't buy another abridged Star Wars novel after this.

    "A story that grabs you!"

    This was one of my earlier Audiobook experiences.
    And I'm glad it was!

    The combination of good narration and some well written story points makes
    for a great audio experience!

    Some of the parts in the audiobook grab you so much that you
    suddenly find a detailed and exciting movie is playing in your head!

    The Double duel with Luke and Mara, the battle in the Hapen Palace,
    all well done. Bravo!

    "A great series!"

    I haven't read any Star Wars novels in years and have become addicted to this series since joining Audible. The narration is outstanding and the story draws you in. A great addition to an excellent series.

    "No More Abridged Books !"

    I've been a huge Star Wars fan since I was kid and saw the original movie for a friend's birthday party on May 29, 1977, but I don't think I'll be buying any more SW books...

    A) The abridged versions are terrible. A big part of the SW universe is the description, most of which is cut out in the abridgement.

    2) The current and future books are all in nine-or-ten part series. It seems like the authors and publishers are just stringing the readers along... A single story from beginning to end costs well over $100.
