As the New Republic takes devastating losses in the ongoing war with the scattered remnants of the Empire, the galaxy's future depends on three small children, among them the Jedi twins, born to incredible powers and perils, as an extraordinary new saga unfolds.
While the New Republic struggles to decide what to do with the deadly Sun Crusher, a new doomsday weapon stolen from the Empire by Han Solo, the renegade Imperial Admiral Daala uses her fleet of Star Destroyers to conduct guerrilla warfare on peaceful planets. And now she threatens the watery homeworld of Admiral Ackbar.
But as the battle for a planet rages, an even greater danger emerges at Luke Skywalker's Jedi academy. A brilliant student delves dangerously into the dark side of the Force and unleashes the spirit of an ancient master of the evil order that warped Darth Vader himself. Working together, they may become an enemy greater than the New Republic has ever fought...and more powerful than even a Jedi Master can face.

Really distracting narration
Bad narration with multiple mispronunciations. Coruscant is pronounced "CorusKant", Han Solo sounds like a 1940's gangster, and Wedge Antilles sounds like Scotty from Star Trek. Very distracting after hearing the amazing Mark Thompson in so many great readings.
Please have Mark Thompson narrate any book previously narrated by Anthony Heald!
The narrator is not even a fan of Star Wars. He keeps calling it core-is-kont. Drives me crazy. Then i can't get past how oblivious Luke is. Just not a good listen.
These are definitely written for a younger audience but they are fun to listen to. This second one was better than the first. Reminded me lots of the plot points in the movies. Good narrator. Worth listening to if you like star wars, want to know what happens right after movies end and want a simple listen. Sound effects sometimes bother me but these are good.
