Publisher's Summary

How long can the Jedi remain in power? How far will the Sith go to rule supreme? What chance do both stand against Abeloth?

As Luke and Ben Skywalker pursue the formidable dark-side being Abeloth, the Lost Tribe of the Sith is about to be sundered by an even greater power - which will thrust one Dark Lord into mortal conflict with his own flesh-and-blood.

On Coruscant, a political vacuum has left tensions at the boiling point, with factions racing to claim control of the Galactic Alliance. Suddenly surrounded by hidden agendas, treacherous conspiracies, and covert Sith agents, the Jedi Order must struggle to keep the GA government from collapsing into anarchy.

The Jedi are committed to maintaining peace and ensuring just rule, but even they are not prepared to take on the combined threats of Sith power, a deposed dictator bent on galaxywide vengeance, and an entity of pure cunning and profound evil hungry to become a god.

Greatest Narrator of all time!

I love all things Star Wars, and I've listened to every audiobook available, but Marc Thompson makes the difference. His ability to audibly define every single character is superb!

Marc Thompson. Enough said.

This book could suck and it would still be good due to Thompson but it doesnt its a good follow up to the last one and sets a good pace for the rest in the series. I hope these authers are thanking Marc for the performances he does. Makes these books so much more enjoyable.
Thanks Marc!

Vol you fool you.

Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Ascension to be better than the print version?

I would due to the voice acting which is top noch.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Ascension?

Where Vol mentally duesl with Abeloth.

Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have. All excellent. This still proves he's at the top of his game.

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

Not really.

An exciting Star Wars book to listen to

Just finished this book and all I can saw is WOW.
The writing and the voice acting by Marc Thompson is superb.

Marc Thompson always brings an A+ effort, not only changing his voice to reflect the character that is talking but the known characters (Luke, Leia, Han, Lando, etc) and are always consistent & sound great for those none regular cast (Allana, Tenel Ka, Sith characters, Ves).

Highly recommend this entire series.
