The New York Times bestselling Star Wars series The New Jedi Order enthralls readers with its epic drama and thrilling adventure. Now readers will pierce the very heart of darkness. . . .
It is a solemn time for the New Republic, as the merciless Yuuzhan Vong continue their campaign of destruction. The brutal enemy has unleashed a savage creature capable of finding—and killing—Jedi Knights. And now Leia Organa Solo faces a terrible ultimatum. If the location of the secret Jedi base is not revealed within one week, the Yuuzhan Vong will blast millions of refugee ships into oblivion.
As the battered but still unbroken Jedi scramble to deal with the newest onslaught, Leia’s son Anakin lays out a daring plan. He will lead a Jedi strike force into the heart of enemy territory in order to sabotage the Yuuzhan Vong’s deadliest weapons. There, with his brother and sister at his side, he will come face-to-face with his destiny—as the New Republic, still fighting the good fight, will come face-to-face with theirs. . . .
The reason I hate ABRIDGED
While I actually thought this was an excellent audio book, it also defines why I hate abridged so much. This book wasn't trimmed down, it was decimated. Viqi Shesh was not present at all, nor was the sacking of Coruscant. A third of the book was excised. Good for a listen, but not worth twelve bucks.
Really? A 600 page book cut down to 3 hours?
An amazing read, not a good audiobook with so much cut out. Thank God the Fate Of The Jedi Series audiobooks weren’t eviscerated like Star By Star. Huge plot lines are left out. Do yourself a favor and read the physical copy. I read the physical copies before I purchase audiobooks. Why? Because Disney will never let the real canon of Star Wars (the novels and comics from before Disney Bought Star Wars and DESTROYED it) Like I said Read the physical or digital edition, don’t buy the audio book. You’ll miss so many plot points and exciting events that make it one of the greatest yet darkest Star Wars story ever with this trashed version.
No invasion of coruscant? No kidnapping of Ben? No almost death for Luke and Jade? Very disappointing. I love the audio-narration of star wars books, it adds something that works in few other books, but this was a huge disappointment.
