Publisher's Summary

Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo work to help refugees flooding in to the planet Duro from the Rim worlds. However the dreaded Yuuzhan Vong have chosen Duro as their next target. Jacen Solo, working at his father's side, finds himself on the horns of a dilemma: how to reconcile using the Force as a tool for good, yet still fight the evil invaders. He must make the right choice, for the future of his family, and possibly of the New Republic itself, hangs in the balance.

Slow and short...

Very short listen for $11 and narration is pretty bad especially if you've listened to Marc Thompson narrate any of the Star Wars books. I just really want to finish the Jedi Order series but the narration is making that tough to suffer through.

Please stop

Why even have Jonathan David and Marc Thompson read SW novels if you’re gonna then try to pass off Anthony Heald and whomever the hell this guy was. Davis and Thompson are elite. And get fans accustomed to a certain standard. A standard expected of a billion dollar grossing franchise. But nope. Let’s have ransoms who apparently have never even researched the projects. How do you have multiple narrators mispronounce such key names and titles?? And this guy was so monotone with all characters that at one point I had to rewind almost a full four minutes because I zoned out and lost interest.

narration terrible

I don't understand how Michael cumpsty got the job. like really I don't understand. I just wish the writing had been a little stronger and the narration could have been done a lot better.
