Publisher's Summary

Kyle Katarn has joined the ranks of legendary Star Wars heroes such as Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. A timeless adventure of revenge and honor, the trilogy is set in a shimmering universe of sound that only digital technology can fully capture.

In Soldier for the Empire, Kyle Katarn, having just graduated from the Imperial Military Academy, learns of his father's murder. On his way home, he meets a Rebel agent, learns the ugly truth about the way in which his father died, and swears revenge.

In Rebel Agent, Kyle learns more about what his father found in the Valley of the Jedi that ultimately led to his death. Kyle finally earns his Knighthood as a Jedi, and the stage is set for him to avenge his father's death and stop the Dark Jedi from taking control of the source of energy that lies underneath the Valley.

Jedi Knight, the exciting conclusion to the series, has Jerec, the Dark Jedi, bringing his forces to Ruusan in the final part of his search for the Valley of the Jedi. Destroying anything that gets in his way, Jerec reaches the Valley just ahead of Kyle Katarn and Jan Ors. With the help of the indigenous inhabitants of the planet, Kyle and Jan confront Jerec's Jedi and prepare for a final showdown with Jerec. If Jerec defeats Kyle, the unlimited power contained in the Valley will enable him to rule the galaxy. Are Kyle's untrained Jedi powers enough to defeat Jerec?

    "A good story, that fills much needed gaps."

    A rare Star Wars book written today that meets the old high standards & fills the gaps from one of the best written Star Wars Games of all time.

    You can see it unfold before your eyes. It had people from the original screen play. Well done.

    "Good story, but the quality of the recording is ok"
    What did you love best about Star Wars?

    It filled in the storyline from the original PC games form years ago.


    Would you recommend Star Wars to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you ever played the original Dark Forces PC games, I would recommend listening to these stories.


    How could the performance have been better?

    This dramatized version of the books is okay, as with other SW books, having mulitiple actors and sound effects adds to the listening experience of the books. With that said, I felt the the audio mixing sucked. One moment the characters are whispering, the next the music blasting because you had to turn up the volume.<br/><br/>I'm a big fan of the oringal SW musical scores, and tingle inside when I hear the Vader's theme song, but I felt there was way too much music playing between the story lines. If you took out the extended music, I think this book would be 1/2 hour shorter.

    "Great fun"

    A must-listen for Star Wars fans, whether you played the Dark Forces games or not. Great sound design, above-average voice acting and an interesting exploration of the events surrounding the original movies from a different vantage. I wish more of these had been done.

    "Almost good story"

    I enjoyed the stories to a point, but felt that the writing could have been just a little better. Repeating words in multiple sentences made it feel as if the writer did not have a broad vocabulary. The character also progressed very quickly with very little training which made no sense. "Hey look, I can do this and that, I must be a Jedi now." The character did not even seem to know what a Jedi really was but magically became one. As a Star Wars fan, this is still a must as it helps explain some events durring the fall of the empire.

    "Great Trilogy based on the populer PC games!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars: Dark Forces Collector's Trilogy (Dramatized) to be better than the print version?

    I like the Dramatized versions of ALL the Star Wars books! Wish there were more......


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: Dark Forces Collector's Trilogy (Dramatized)?

    There really aren't any for this listener, but the entire production is pretty well done.


    What aspect of full cast’s performance would you have changed?

    The story is great, but the performance and storyline could've been more 'adult' in it's context. These performances, were obviously guided towards the young teen genre.....


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    Great fill-in storyline that adds greatly to the SW universe......
