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.

    "Meh..."

    Save yourself 10 yours and just read about the book and the backstory it sets up for the Jedi and dark side. There is a few interesting tidbits, but overall I found it anti-climactic and a bit dull. The narration also left something to be desired. Most of the voices sounded to similar to discern who was talking when multiple people were in a convo.

    "Noisy."

    The voice actor was great, the additional sound fx and music was too much.
    Story still good.

    "Without expectation."

    Narrator did a great job, pleasant voice. The story of the early Jeddai was great for laying groundwork. The struggle of siblings and how life can change them is amazing.

    "Hit it home"

    While it was a bit difficult to follow the "flashbacks" with no warning, I enjoyed this audiobook and will listen to it again and again.

    "Mediocre"

    This book had so much potential but the story was vague in its important story elements, its characters undeveloped and borderline child-like, and was horribly cliche. Didn't sound like it was written by an experienced author.

    Story
    "Misleading Title (Dawn of the Jedi)"
    What did you like best about Into the Void? What did you like least?

    It was interesting to see the use of the force but diving into the use of the light and dark sides was completely absent, save for maintaining balance. If you were a practitioner of both the light and dark sides of the force you would maintain peace during the light being unemotional and peaceful which would serve you for negotiations, or possibly using the darkside to fuel your passion and enable you jolts of power when fighting. Those subtleties and transitions were all non-existent. Such a hugely missed opportunity...if you are really talking about the dawn of the Jedi


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Star Wars - Bloodline.This book, however, was just ok, that's disappointing as I could listen to the Revan or Bane trilogy over again.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by January LaVoy?

    I think January is a great reader I think her voice couldn't save this novel. I will try her on Star Wars - Bloodline in which the lead is also female.


    Do you think Into the Void needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes one that actually dives into the divergence of the light and dark sides of the force which this one not only failed to realize, but completely skipped out on. "Into the Void" doesn't match the story at all. It could represent Dale's attempt at entering the void through creating a star gate but that never happened so the void was never reached. It wasn't until after the story had ended that a brief read about Hawk and Lanoree happen which actually talked about the light and dark sides, but alas it lasted only 20 short and sweet minutes.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe a follow up book about the actual split, creating of the light and dark Je'Daii (while at this time there may have been the species Sith, there was no Sith empire yet, which actually spawned from Dark Jedi who left the council and created the Sith order named after the then though forgotten Sith species)

    Story
    "There is strong world building in this book."

    The story is well told, and well preformed. The concept of a balanced force user appeals greatly to me, as opposed to exclusively light or exclusively dark. The world building is strong, and creates a place ripe for future stories. The weakest aspect of this book is the handling of the main character and heroin. As the story progressed it felt like the writer kept putting themselves in a corner, and the only way out was for the main character to make worse and worse choices. Watching the main character display an increasing level of incompatancy that wasn't there at the beginning was extremely frustrating. I almost decided to move on from the book because of it. But it works out in the end and all wraps up nicely.

    Story
    "Decent, but quick"
    What did you like best about Into the Void? What did you like least?

    A story of the ancient order of the Jedi was always something that fascinated me as a kid and now as an adult I finally get to enjoy some of the stories of the times before the republic.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Honestly it felt underachieved. If anything overall the story felt less like a novel and more like a short story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably the flashbacks were my favorite overall.


    Was Into the Void worth the listening time?

    I felt like the story could of been longer, but I was done listening to this a lot faster than I thought I would.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're any bit curious over what the Jedi were like long before the war with the Sith, or even the formation of the Republic, give it a listen. But the story is very short and after all the events it's very lack luster for an ending.
