First off Troy Denning is my favorite SW writer.
He paces his novels as if they were a screenplay for a movie. This novel is not meant to be a stand alone book, although you could start here if your looking to get into this series. This novel was a total trip. I mean it's really creepy all the way through, then WHAM! The last few chapters will blow you away.
It's even more exciting with the audiobook. Marc Thompson nails every character, especially Luke Skywalker. He's fantastic. And best of all, this series is unabriged. Definitely worth your credit.
i feel like there getting back on track with SW books. the last series was not in depth enough and felt like a cheap pocket book. but i thought this author who writes allot of SW books pulled it back in line in this novel. this series has a little direction now. and im glad they are offering SW books unabridged now.

This one takes a turn from the first two and has a very dark, creepy feeling to it--which works! It's a nice change of pace and gives the story new depth. And the haunting music is really outstanding!
I definitely felt the "hungry purple tentacles" runing up my spine!
Once again, Marc Thompson does a tremendous job narrating. This is not a series to miss!
I am really liking this series of books and this is another gem. Reading some of the older books were pretty hit or miss but I think they have the proven authors working on some very good plots now. The only problem I had with this audio was in the second file, at one hour and twenty-nine minutes in (format 4 I believe). The audio skipped and I missed a little bit of the action, I do not think it was very much but that still disappointed me a little bit.
Marc Thompson is THE single best narrator for Star Wars I have ever heard. His characters are so believable and recognizable. Amazing series and can't wait for the next one.
Book 3 follows well from books 1 and 2, and I'm enjoying most of the different plot lines. I will say that Luke and Ben Skywalker's adventure in the Maw was a little difficult to follow via the audio version, but it basically makes sense.
The story is endless, it sucks you in from the very beginning and leaves you wanting more..
All of it...
He is the voice of these Jedi novels..
Left me needing to get any follow up novels...
Best thing ever!
I love Jaina Solo in these books.
I can't believe how enjoyable it's made the books. I like hearing the different voices and sound effects. Lightsaber fights!!! I'm new to audio books and now I'm addicted, I like listening to it before falling asleep. The Audible app is great for that too.
I am really enjoying this series, it's keeping me interested. I love how it's presenting a whole lot of familiar characters from the past. I can't get enough of these books.
Can't wait for the next one in the series....please get in audio book.
Also - Marc Thompson is the BEST narrator. I totally get sucked into his telling.
I want to be a Jedi like Luke. Heck, even like Ben. This was a great book. I listened in my car as I drove to work and school. Found myself taking the long routes so I can stay in my car longer. Going to listen again on a plane ride across America now.
