Publisher's Summary

During this savage civil war, all efforts to end Jacen Solo's tyranny of the Galactic Alliance have failed. Now, with Jacen approaching the height of his dark powers, no one - even the Solos and the Skywalkers - knows if anything can stop the Sith Lord before his plan to save the galaxy ends up destroying it.

Jacen Solo's shadow of influence has threatened many, especially those closest to him. Jaina Solo is determined to bring her brother in, but in order to track him down, she must first learn unfamiliar skills from a man she finds ruthless, repellent, and dangerous.

Meanwhile, Ben Skywalker, still haunted by suspicions that Jacen killed his mother, Mara, decides he must know the truth, even if it costs him his life. And as Luke Skywalker contemplates once unthinkable strategies to dethrone his nephew, the hour of reckoning for those on both sides draws near. The galaxy becomes a battlefield where all must face their true nature and darkest secrets, and live - or die - with the consequences.

    "Well worth the money!"

    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.

    "great narration and story line"
    If you could sum up Star Wars in three words, what would they be?

    No more abridgment


    If you’ve listened to books by Karen Traviss before, how does this one compare?

    This series is written well enough it it hard to distinguish between the authors. That's how it should be

    "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.

    "Mark Thompson rules"

    If you listen to anything, it has to be Mark. His mastery of the voices is superb

    "Fantastic other than abridgement"
    What did you like best about Star Wars? What did you like least?

    The story was good and the narration by Marc Thompson was outstanding. I will say that this series, while good, has its drawbacks due to the dark nature and characters who are usually allies not being on the same side.

    The thing about I disliked the most is the abridgement. This whole series should have been unabridged.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that what really happened to Mara finally comes out.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The reveal about Mara.


    Was Star Wars worth the listening time?

    Absolutely worth it overall, but the abridgement is still an issue for me. It should have been unabridged.


    Any additional comments?

    Glad the next series is unabridged!
