Publisher's Summary

The war that erupted in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones is nearing its boiling point. The dauntless Separatist forces continue their assault on the teetering Republic as the diabolical triumvirate of Count Dooku, General Grievous, and their Master, Darth Sidious, fine-tune their strategy for conquest. In Episode III Revenge of the Sith the fates of key players on both sides of the conflict will be sealed. But first, crucial events that pave the way to that time of reckoning unfold in a labyrinth of evil.

Capturing Trade Federation Viceroy and Separatist Councilmember Nute Gunray is the mission that brings Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, with a squad of clones in tow, to Neimoidia. Their daring efforts yield an unexpected prize: a unique holotransceiver that bears intelligence capable of leading the Republic forces to their ultimate quarry, the ever-elusive Darth Sidious.

Swiftly taking up the chase, Anakin and Obi-Wan follow clues from the droid factories of Charros IV to the far-flung worlds of the Outer Rim...every step bringing them closer to pinpointing the location of the Sith Lord, whom they suspect has been manipulating every aspect of the Separatist rebellion.

Then the trail takes a shocking turn. For Sidious and his minions have set in motion a ruthlessly orchestrated campaign to divide and overwhelm the Jedi forces and bring the Republic to its knees.

Good, could be better

Labyrinth Of Evil the novel is fantastic. Labyrinth of Evil the audiobook leaves too many holes to be fantastic. All of the main characters face omissions. Their thoughts are vital to this storyline. Yoda, Windu's and Palpatine's scene are compressed. Yoda's thoughts on the currents of the force are compressed. Yoda's realization that his arrogance has imbued to the Jedi Order a dispiritedness that the dark side of the force is overtaking the Jedi order is gone. C-3P0's inadvertant meeting with the droid soothsayer seemed valuable to retain. I think that Labyrinth of Evil and Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader should have been unabridged audiobooks because of their value to the pre-quel story line. The narrator does an admirable job with all those voices.

Great novel

The storytelling is great, it gives depth to the characters and adds a lot of details to the political environment. It is exciting, there's never a boring moment. Jonathan Davies is fantastic as always! I really enjoyed it! This Dark Lord trilogy is a must for Star Wars fans!

No more abridged.

To short. The details cut out had the potential to make or break it and it totally ruined the key parts of the story.

Abridged

This abridged version "reads" easier than the print version. Luceno is a great Star Wars author, but it seems that he gets bogged down in too much setting depth in the book. This audio book has a much better flow. It balances event pacing with character development.

Very good story, but why abridged?

I think anyone truly interested in the whole story of The Clone Wars, would like this. Knowing how it ends doesn't lessen the intrigue. I just wish we could get more of these stories unabridged in audiobook format.

I love labyrinth of evil

Labyrinth of evil is a masterpiece James Lucero has made something amazing even though it's abridged and yes I hate abridged audio books but that being said this audio book is really good the mission to track down Darth sidious is very good in fact the only had thing about this audio book is that it's abridged and that's not the audio book it's self it's the fact that it's so long the action is amazing the politics are amazing in fact let's talk about this audio book the action starts on the home plant of nute gunray were the clone wars rage obi wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker are leading a attack against the droid army when the battle ends nute gunray escapes but he has accidentally left behind a clue to Darth sidious Anakin Skywalker and obi wan Kenobi are sent on a mission to track him down meanwhile on corasaunt senator Padme amidala fights for the rights of normal people when plapatine strips away freedom of movement and as the war nears its end count dooku and general grievous set their sights on corasaunt and leader of the republic Palpatine and that's why I love labyrinth of evil.

Clone Wars Drive on

Shows connections between Lord Cedeous, Count Doku and General Grevous. Period between episode II and III with what Anikan and Obiwan have been up too.

Saddeningly exquisite

As always, a stellar story and performance that is sadly not canon (Thanks Disney...gawd!).

I loved it!

Good book

Pretty good story that ties in nicely inbetween episode 2 and 3 and adds more depth to the main characters and overall starwars story. Excellent narration by Jonathan Davis
