Publisher's Summary

Civil war rages as the Galactic Alliance, led by Cal Omas and the Jedi forces of Luke Skywalker, battles a confederation of breakaway planets that rally to the side of rebellious Corellia. Suspected of involvement in an assassination plot against Queen Mother Tenel Ka of the Hapes Consortium, Han and Leia Solo are on the run, hunted by none other than their own son, Jacen, whose increasingly authoritarian tactics as head of GA security have led Luke and Mara Skywalker to fear that their nephew may be treading perilously close to the dark side. But all Jacen wants is safety and stability for all - and he's prepared to do whatever it takes to achieve that goal.

As the strands of destiny draw ever more tightly together in a galaxy-spanning web, the shocking conclusion will shatter two families and cast a grim shadow over the future.

    "A great series! Keeps your hungry for more!"

    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.

    "Good overall"

    This is the 5th book in this story line, it is more story than action and the action in good just not great. But between Jason and -Fet they more than carry this book.

    "the best of a great series"

    The LOF series is a fantastic one to begin with. The narrator does a fantastic job of pulling you in. Sacrifice is the best out of the series, with and ending that will make you immediately want to hear the next tape in the series.

    "Karen Travis is a God"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version so I can't compare them.


    What other book might you compare Star Wars to and why?

    I am an avid Star Wars reader & Karen Travis books in & out the Star Wars series, she wrote gears of war and Halo books.


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

    I have been listening to the entire series & thus far this book holds the lead of all 7.
