The Sith Empire is in flux. The Emperor is missing, presumed dead, and an ambitious Sith lord’s attempt to seize the throne has ended fatally. Still, Darth Karrid, commander of the fearsome Imperial battle cruiser Ascendant Spear, continues her relentless efforts to achieve total Sith domination of the galaxy.
But Karrid’s ruthless determination is more than matched in the steely resolve of Theron Shan, whose unfinished business with the Empire could change the course of the war for good. Though the son of a Jedi master, Theron does not wield the Force—but like his renowned mother, the spirit of rebellion is in his blood. As a top covert agent for the Republic, he struck a crucial blow against the Empire by exposing and destroying a Sith superweapon arsenal—which makes him the ideal operative for a daring and dangerous mission to end Ascendant Spear’s reign of terror.
Joined by hot-headed smuggler Teff’ith, with whom he has an inexplicable bond, and wise Jedi warrior Gnost-Dural, Darth Karrid’s former master, Theron must match wits and weapons with a battle-tested crew of the most cold-blooded dark side disciples. But time is brutally short. And if they don’t seize their one chance to succeed, they will surely have countless opportunities to die.
Praise for Annihilation
“An espionage story interwoven with personal conflicts . . . space battles, lightsaber fights, and gripping spy missions . . . Annihilation may be Karpyshyn’s strongest novel yet.”—Roqoo Depot
“Pure Star Wars action-adventure entertainment as only Drew Karpyshyn can write it.”—The Founding Fields
Fool of intrigue and action, this book is a wonderful addition to the old republic line. With good plot and better twist this book will be a perfect buy for any Star Wars fan.
A good short story, not as detailed as the series novels but this one is satisfying. Of course Marc Thompson and his amazing voices make the story come alive as always. Can't wait for the next Star Wars novels!
I loved this Audiobook. The narration & theming & music; were perfect. The story actually takes place, in a time period that we don’t know all that much about in the Star Wars Universe. (Back when the Republic, was entirely intact & was still actively working to spread & maintain, Democracy & Peace, in the Galaxy.
The main character (Intelligence Agent), was very interesting to me. It was cool just to hear about different facets of the Republic, back in its “heyday”.... Also, this book is definitely not so “focused” on the Jedi Order or on any Single Jedi in particular... However, the few that do end up becoming a part of this story, are quite interesting and characters who I would definitely like to learn more about!
I wish there were more books to continue the story!! I was kinda bummed when it was over. Because, I alreadykbee that this was a standalone book (the ending was great as well)...
In conclusion; If you are considering it, I definitely recommend purchasing this audiobook, right now!
