The story was enjoyable, and the character development and foreshadowing to the prequels were excellent. I also really enjoyed the Qui-gon flashbacks with Dooku, and I thought the character of Rael Averros was a great addition to the Star Wars universe. The sound editing (FX and music) and narration were both beyond excellent. Seriously, I can't get over how much I enjoyed the various voices. The only weak voice was Mace Windu's--he sounded like Stonewall Jackson.

A Promising First Effort; Voice Acting Lackluster

Positives: I love the idea of an audio-exclusive Star Wars book...almost like an old radio drama. The decision to tackle a prequel-era story was also a plus for me. The voice actors for Yoda, Qui-gon, Asajj, and Jenza (sp) were spot-on. I gave this a fourth star just because I enjoyed the pre-quel era story and the audio drama format, and I would love to see some more books like it in the future!

Negatives: The story felt almost haphazard at times. Overall, I was not impressed with the voice acting or the editing. Many conversations didn't flow--they felt like the different speaking parts had been recorded separately and then edited in a way that sounded slightly unnatural. Dooku's voice actor was one of my least favorite casting decisions; his voice actor was obviously talented, but I had a hard time picturing him as Dooku when I was expecting something like the voice of Sir Christopher Lee. Also, I'm shocked that this story included Sifo-Dyas but didn't elaborate as to why his name was given to the Kaminoan cloners as the one requesting the clone army. (Maybe Dooku was just impersonating him.) I listened to this immediately after listening to the audio version of "Master and Apprentice," where a single narrator voiced a large cast of characters more convincingly than the multiple voice actors here (the narrator from Master and Apprentice voiced Qui-gon here though, if I'm not mistaken).
