In a stunning turn of events, Luke Skywalker and his son, Ben, joined forces with members of the Sith armada sent to kill them - and turned their combined might against the monstrous being Abeloth. But with Abeloth gone, the Sith reverted to form, making a treacherous attempt on Luke's life.
Luke and Ben have no time for retaliation. A new and even more insidious threat is rising. Unless the Skywalkers survive to sound the alarm, the galaxy will suffer as it has never suffered before. But the reinforcements they need remain grounded on Coruscant, where the political battle of wills between the Jedi Council and Galactic Alliance Chief of State Natasi Daala has reached a boiling point.
Now Luke and Ben must go on the run, taking along the inscrutable - and dangerous - Sith apprentice Vestara Khai. With a host of Sith warriors in hot pursuit, the Skywalkers soon find themselves trapped on the moon Pydyr, caught between their former allies and a mob of angry Fallanassi. A new truce may be their only hope.

This series continues to improve as it the story progresses. This is a much more emotional story. It's has happy moment and some sad moments. I really enjoyed and will listen to it again. If you follow the star wars universe, you'll want to continue with this story. If you haven't read/listened any of the previous Fate of the Jedi, then you'll want to read or listen to them first.
Marc Thompson is a great narrator. I hope to see more narrations from him and not just Star Wars books.
Great series. Totally gets my mind of work during my commutes. If you have not listened to the series start from the books right after the return of the jedi. you will be hooked!
Hard to say cause the reader did so many great voices and imitation of character in the Movie version of star Wars... I guess I like the HIgh lord Sith lord. He did a great Lando Calloresian.
no, I haven't
A 5 start performance,The story had 5 star production values all the way,listening to it was better than watching the Movie, thanks to the reader,and production values.
The reason I didn't give it 5 all the way arcoss is because is part of a series,so it would be nice to have listened to the previous stories to understand better than what is going on in this one..
It a relatively small story, about 14 hours... ,Too bad Audible couldn't bundle other parts in this series these together and sell them for 1 or 2 credits. It would be well worth it..
I found this story CD in a second hand book store , it was inexpensive.
Part 2 starts with Chapter 1 displayed on my Zune.....?? Otherwise a great performance by the narrator, Marc Thompson. The story starts out kinda lame, but ramps up with very light political intrigue and some action. Typical leftist, tree hugging droll from this crop of Star Wars writers.
I listened to this on the way to Disney World. The first half on the way down and the second on the way up. The story is excellent and the voice acting and sound effects add a good feel to the story. I enjoyed this thoroughly and hope I can go back to the beginning of the series at some point and listen to those as well.
As a faithful listener of this series, I admit being a little biased. I have enjoyed the expanded universe for some time. This book is action packed, and Troy Denning has a wonderful gift for keeping us on edge during the ride. I highly recommend this to my friends and family.
I like the audio productions of these books because they add a little something. The stories are so tightly contolled that there is never any real risk involved, so hearing a production helps immensely. Of course, the biggest problem is the protrayal of Lando. Um, has the performer never seen the movies? When did Lando become a Texan?
