Publisher's Summary

No war can last forever. Now, in the long and punishing battle between the defiant champions of the New Jedi Order and the juggernaut that is the Galactic Alliance, the endgame is finally at hand.

The rebel cause is losing ground under the twin blows of Admiral Gilad Pellaeon's assassination and the death of Mara Jade Skywalker. At the same time, the Galactic Alliance, with the extraordinary power and dark brilliance of newly ascendant Sith Lord Darth Caedus at its helm, may be unstoppable.

Tormented and torn between the call of duty and the thirst for vengeance, Luke has searched the Force and beheld an unspeakable vision of the galaxy enslaved under tyranny more monstrous than even Palpatine's. Now it seems that the last, best hope lies in mobilizing the scattered Jedi for one decisive search-and-destroy mission. The objective: eliminate Darth Caedus.

It's a plan that will be as difficult and dangerous to execute as it is daring. For Caedus is a scion of both the Skywalker and Solo bloodlines whose command of the Force surpasses even that of his grandfather, Darth Vader. There is only one who is bound by destiny to stand against him in what will surely be a duel to the death, only one with an outside chance of bringing down the dark lord who was once Jacen Solo

The furious final moments between power and peace are here, and whoever confronts Darth Caedus will decide the outcome - and the fate of those left standing.

Truly Entertaining!

Very well done for a Star Wars audiobook. Even though it is abridged, the 6 hour run-time leaves enough material to make this audiobook entertaining. That said, you can still notice gaps where, I assume, material was cut out for the abridgement. This can be annoying after a while. I won't beat around the bush, I loathe any abridgement and I would encourage people to complain to the publisher so that they will begin releasing unabridged versions of these books. Other than that, this book was excellent. Marc Thompson is one of the most talented narrators that I have heard. It is a pleasure to listen to him. The different character voices that he assumes throughout the book are executed flawlessly and I had to keep reminding myself that it was the same person speaking. The writing, sound production, and music were all top notch. I would give this 5 stars if not for the abridgement.

One last thing, stay away from any of the star wars audiobooks that are less than 6 hours in length. They are so butchered by the abridgements, that they are not worth your time or money. Quite a few of these are narrated by Anthony Heald and he is just plain awful. I found this out the hard way. Just remember, Anthony Heald = extremely poor narration. Jonathan Davis = Extremely good narration. Marc Thompson = Outstanding narration.

Good for Abridged

This is an abridged version so quite a bit of the book is left out. One thing missing are Jacen's jokes at the beginning of each chapter. There is also alot of description missing. But . . . you can follow the story and you do get the main part of what the authors of this series were trying to get across. It really isn't bad for abridged. I wish audible would do unabridged of these.

Worth waiting for

My son has been waiting for this since he finished listening to Book 8. He loved it and could not wait to get back into the car to hear more, he was actually hoping for red lights to make the drives to school longer. It was a good end to the story and we are looking forward to future stories with the characters we have watched grow over the years.

Excellent Series ! Great Finale!

Highly recommended! 3rd or 4th time listening to this series. It's very well read and has a great story line! I wish the new movies were based off of these novels. Darth Caedus is a much better character than Kylo Ren!

Such a great ending to such an amazing series!! Seeing the culmination of Jacen Solo's fall to the Dark Side and having to pay for all the atrocities he caused!! Amazing Writing, I enjoyed reading the book years ago, but enjoyed it even more so on Audible!!
