Publisher's Summary

As ruthless apprentice to Darth Vader, Starkiller was mercilessly schooled in the ways of the dark side, commanded to exterminate the last of the purged Jedi Order, and groomed for the ultimate Sith power play: assassination of the Emperor. He served without question, killed without remorse, and lost his heart without warning to beautiful Imperial fighter pilot Juno Eclipse, never suspecting that he was just a tool in the schemes of his masters - until it was too late to escape their lethal betrayal.

Juno mourned Starkiller as dead...but now he is back, purged of all memories and programmed to kill. And as fate brings Juno and Starkiller closer to reuniting, with Darth Vader determined not to lose his assassin a second time, they will both have to make a stand. The prize is freedom. The punishment for failing will be eternal enslavement to the dark side of the Force....

    The expansion on the story of Starkiller's fate. Also more background to Juno and the others than the game had.

    When Starkiller broke into the Rogue Shadow's cockpit and Juno was not there.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Davis – was your favorite?

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When he finally held Juno in his arms again.

    Worth every cent.

    "The video game again, huh?"

    This is an unabridged complete and coherent book as opposed the abridged prequel. Like the first book, it also contains the voice changes and sound effects that make this series seem so alive. I highly enjoyed it and only failed to give it a five star rating because the audio mix at times is questionable (the sound effects drown out the narrative at two distinct points). I honestly wish they would make more novels from compelling video game story lines. This is a nice piece of work by Sean Williams.

    "should not be abridged"

    good narration, good story. although i felt the story where too short, and took a too many shortcuts and i missed more origin details of the main characters. and the relations between the characters felt too hastened and forced. theres no explanation to why these people feel the way they do towards each other. they dont get enough time to get to know each other, but the act like they've known each other far more and longer than this abridged book allowes us to see.

    "very enjoyable!"

    a ton of action and interesting plot twists. the story of Starkiller is not as well known but is very important to the alliance.

    "Weird"

    The first book was good but this one is confusing. Creates more questions and left me in a weird place. Good build but as finish in my opinion.

    "Read these back to back."

    Lot's of action alone makes it worth a second listen. The story does lag in places but makes up for it with debuts by old favorites. There is plenty of back story too, leading up to the events of episode IV.

    "Wast of time"

    Jonathan Davis is the only enjoyable thing about this book. Painfully hard to listen to. Once you get through the first half of the book it continues to repeat itself. I bought UNLEASHED and this one and have listen to them both. Waste of time. I'm not a gamer so that might have a roll to play but after this story I definitely wouldn't want to play the game. Weak in every way.

    Story
    "Meh, more of a side story than anything else..."
    What disappointed you about Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II?

    It was fairly boring.


    Has Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Davis – was your favorite?

    Proxy.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom.


    Any additional comments?

    Spoiler: the only thing good about this story is revealing some of the backstory regarding how the Rebel Alliance was formed. Else, it was a juvenile romp through the galaxy. This is like the book version of those terrible Transformers movies. Unless you're under the age of 15, you'll be looking for more substance.

    "Fanboys & girls avoid"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People interested in a Star Wars story that resides outside the canon.


    Has Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, in fact, since I have read part one and listened to part two, I would like to see how they wrap this up. Part of the allure of listening to this book was that it is unabridged.


    What three words best describe Jonathan Davis’s voice?

    Enjoyable, appropriate, easy


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Star Wars. Some nice cameos and possibilities have been established, but the main characters are not legends in the Star Wars canon and it is kind of hard to create a legend with a prequel, especially when it is based on a video game series that is mediocre.

    "A book or a video game?"

    I liked the first book in the series but this one reads like the entire story was concocted to justify a second video game. For example in a scene where he fights clones of himself and the rancor-eating monster, I couldn't help thinking how this would provide the game's near-impossible to beat "boss" levels. Sure enough I buy the game and find these sequences so difficult I gave up playing it. It's not the first book to inspire a game but I got the distinct feeling while reading this one that it was the other way around.

    As in the first book, Darth Vader is portrayed as a second rate force user who is tossed around by Starkiller like he is nothing. It is very different from the way Vader is portrayed in the Star Wars movies and a bit disappointing...again.

    Overall I'd say the series is going downhill. I think I will stick with the other Star Wars titles from now on. Like most Star Wars fans, I like almost anything set in the Star Wars universe. This one may be a bridge too far.
