Publisher's Summary

On the planet Tython, the ancient Je’daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force - and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je’daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy.

Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je’daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency. The leader of a fanatical cult, obsessed with traveling beyond the reaches of known space, is bent on opening a cosmic gateway using dreaded dark matter as the key - risking a cataclysmic reaction that will consume the entire star system. But more shocking to Lanoree than even the prospect of total galactic annihilation, is the decision of her Je’daii Masters to task her with the mission of preventing it. Until a staggering revelation makes clear why she was chosen: The brilliant, dangerous madman she must track down and stop at any cost is the brother whose death she has long grieved - and whose life she must now fear.

    "Conflicted"

    First I want to say that I am conflicted on any new EU Star Wars books that are coming out after the Disney buyout. We really don't know if they are signed off on or what the deal is.

    The Good: January LaVoy was a awesome choice for the Voice acting for the book, and she will melt your ears with her awesome voice. I would love for her to do more SW novels.

    * These Je'daii are not your Jedi you know and love. They show there arrogance in the story and how they cross the line, but that is all the matter of perspective right?
    *Some what graphic in fight scenes, this could be a bad also for a SW novel.

    The Bad: Just about everything else about the book.

    *It's to short for such a huge opening of a new timeline of the universe.
    *The whole talking in first person and present tense format is a bit annoying.
    * Introduction of profanity in a cleaver way, you will get the picture.
    *The main character seems kind of off or just boring. Maybe I am being to critical of her, she does love to threaten just about everyone with death that she runs into.

    "Disappointing, especially given potential"

    Average 3 Stars. Original timeline choice within Star Wars universe meant a lot of potential and endless possibilities, thus, it was all the more disappointing that the plot felt uninteresting and half-baked. Main character might have had potential in a different plot that wasn't so boring, other characters were forgettable. There was little reason to care about the main "world ending" plot point as its never made clear if it would have even done anything (was this supposed to be some sort of hyperdrive?). In any case, the author could have gone in any direction with this so this became a huge let down, not to mention the abrupt end. Decent narration, at times awkward given the one author trying to voice a diverse amount of characters.

    "Great story..."

    about a time before Jedi and sith. When there wasn’t light and dark, there was balance. If that idea is interesting to you, this is a good book!

    Story
    "Grey Jedi, grisly sword fights, and a fun protagonist."

    When I happened upon this book, I had hoped that it would talk about more of the origins of the Jedi, how the order first formed, etc.
    To an extent it does, but it’s more focused on telling it’s own story - the story of Lanary Brock.

    I give the story 3 Stars because, at first, it was difficult to really get into and I think many would expect a book entitled “Dawn of the Jedi” to be more of an origin story.
    Also the main protagonist (albeit, an emotional and dramatic one for the protagonist, was a bit underwhelming for a villain).

    Star Wars fans, like myself, will enjoy this new and interesting take on what original Jedis were and how it relates back to, what fans call, Grey Jedi now.
    Personally, I think that this take on Jedi is FAR better than the emotionless drones that Lucas turned them into in the prequels.
    Nonetheless, the concept of original Jedi finding balance in the force and practicing various forms of alchemy, arts, and science, is a fun and intriguing wrinkle in the expanded universe.

    Average readers, I think, will enjoy the protagonist. I certainly enjoyed her personality throughout the story.

    The story itself is harder to get into because the chapter’s are quite long and they are split between the past and present of the story.

    January LaVoy does a good job of bringing the protagonist along with other characters to life for me. She struggles a bit with male voices, but that goes with the territory just as male narrators struggle a bit with female voices. All-in-all, she gives a good performance.

    Overall I give this book 3/5 stars because I don’t feel like it can stand by itself as a “great” story without it’s Star Wars association.

    I would recommend this book for the avid Star Wars fan, but not necessarily for someone you want to introduce to Star Wars books for the first time.

    "Fantastic!"

    A fantastic start to a wonderful series. Was very gripping and never wanted to turn the audio book off. Well read and the voices of characters were impressive. 5 stars!

    "A good deviation."

    I've been devouring the new books and many with the characters I know. This book was an outreach for me and I enjoyed it.
    There are literary moments where you feel like the story repeats itself but overall we gain an insight into early Force users and believers. What is it about the Force that divides even the strongest families?
    If you appreciate a solid heroine, you'll like Lannery. Enjoy and MTFBWY.

    "Really bad"

    This book is poorly written, stuffed with descriptive cliches, and offers nothing in the way of interesting lore to the Star Wars universe. Jumbled and hinting at more interesting stories we don't get to hear, each section jars with the previous one.

    The performance was fine, but the story was written in such a way as to make all the protagonists dialogue stilted and forced with her main companion.

    It's always odd to hear a narrator imitating the voice of the opposite gender. Most are quite passable, but this was a particularly bad one. Takes me out of the story I guess.

    Mostly I spent the time wondering why all the characters were so stupid. Protagonist is almost entirely unlikable. Kind of like watching the prequel movies. As a fan of the expanded universe or whatever Disney is calling the books now, I'm disappointed.

    "Passable story but somewhat lackluster reading"

    Overall the story is interesting enough though Lanoree isn't the best protagonist out there. The quality of the performance also isn't up to par when compared to say Thrawn or Plagueiss

    "It bad"

    So, maybe I'm just easily amused, but I actually liked this book. Not my favorite Star Wars book or anything, but not horrible. Storyline was fine and voice actress did a good job. Obviously, she couldn't do the male voices as well as a guy, but it wasn't off-putting to me.

    Sounds like there's an epilogue or something which I'm listening to as I type.
