On the Outer Rim, the planet Lanteeb has no strategic value, no political power, and one enormous problem: It has been invaded by an emboldened Separatist Alliance. To find out why, Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi have snuck onto Lanteebe and now look oblivion in the eye.

This is some of the most repetitive and non-imaginative writing I've experienced in the Star Wars novel world.
Do yourself a favor and read/listen to another novel/author(s)

What began as a quest for truth has become a struggle for survival for Luke Skywalker and his son, Ben. They have used the secrets of the Mindwalkers to transcend their own bodies and speak with the spirits of the fallen, risking their very lives in the process. They have faced a team of Sith assassins and beaten the odds to destroy them. And now the death squad’s sole survivor, Sith apprentice Vestara Khai, has summoned an entire fleet of Sith frigates to engage the embattled father and son.

I loved this story. I was a tribute to the best of the star wars fans' imaginations. I can hardly wait to hear the rest of the series.

The fact that this is unabridged makes it even better. To me, the abridged novels take away from the story.
I wont rave about most Star Wars series however, this series has been a pleasant surprise. Enjoy!
