Publisher's Summary

A new era of exciting adventures and shocking revelations continues to unfold, as the legendary Star Wars saga sweeps forward into astonishing new territory.

Civil war looms as the fledgling Galactic Alliance confronts a growing number of rebellious worlds - and the approaching war is tearing the Skywalker and Solo families apart. Han and Leia return to Han's homeworld, Corellia, the heart of the resistance. Their children, Jacen and Jaina, are soldiers in the Galactic Alliance's campaign to crush the insurgents.

Jacen, now a complete master of the Force, has his own plans to bring order to the galaxy. Guided by his Sith mentor, Lumiya, and with Luke's young son Ben at his side, Jacen embarks on the same path that his grandfather Darth Vader once did. And while Han and Leia watch their only son become a stranger, a secret assassin entangles the couple with a dreaded name from Han's past: Boba Fett. In the new galactic order, friends and enemies are no longer what they seem.

    "Very well done! A great series continues!"

    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.

    "Great book"

    I love Boba Fett, this book really delves into Star Wars from his perspective which becomes fascinating and intriguing. The storyline is very well crafted and bound to keep you hooked on the series. I recommend this book.

    "Better than the first."

    This is the 2nd in a series of nine books: Legacy of the Force. I can tell you it is much better than the first, since there is more personal actions involving the feud growing between the Bobba Fett clan, the Solo clan with Jaycen being the growing nemesis, and Luke growing concern of the dark side consuming his nephew, Jaycen. Also, there is an interesting chapter with Han and Bobba Fett, that reveals a great deal of the characters of both men, and the surprising interaction between them in what happens to Thrackan Sal Solo.

    Overall, I would give this book 4 1/2 stars compared with 4 1/4 stars for the first book, primarily because of the interactions between the families, and how Ben Skywalker is now being forced into a corner between choosing his dad and mom, over his friendship and learning under Jaycen Solo.

    I read the book in paperback, but still enjoyed the abridged version, since it cut out a lot of wasted time in listening and saved money (credit) on the longer version of the book being taped. But it would not hurt to have all the book, still the book was very, very enjoyable. I am now listening to the 3rd in the series..!!

    "A Great Listen"

    This was my first listen from audible. I had already read book 1 of the Legacy of the Force series and decided to break in my Audible subscription with book 2 and did not regret it one bit. The audion effects enhance the overall experience rather than distract from the story. The narrator does an amazing job of keeping things going nicely. My only complaint is that this is abridged. I'd much rather have an unabridged version of these books.

    "No more abridgement!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Great story and the narrator Marc Tompson is fantastic. These abridged versions however are a huge disappointment. I will finish the rest of this story but will no longer give up my credits or purchase any more of these abridged versions ever again. It sucks that the producers and random house audio have created so many abridged books.. They are a huge let down. I feel some what ripped off. I have some titles that are 40+ hours of content and cost 1 credit. These are barely 6 hrs and are so chopped up as to take more away they give.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    "No More Abridged Books !"

    I've been a huge Star Wars fan since I was kid and saw the original movie for a friend's birthday party on May 29, 1977, but I don't think I'll be buying any more SW books...

    A) The abridged versions are terrible. A big part of the SW universe is the description, most of which is cut out in the abridgement.

    2) The current and future books are all in nine-or-ten part series. It seems like the authors and publishers are just stringing the readers along... A single story from beginning to end costs well over $100.

    "Poor abridgment"

    It is hard to recognize that it is a Karen Traviss book. Much of the detail that is typical of her work has been cut out. Scene changes are abrupt and come with no warning.
    Sadly to listen to the series we must suffer.

    "Voices from fate of the Jedi"

    The voices Marc Thompson used on Fate of the Jedi and the Thrawn series were spot on. If an unabridged version is done, he should do them that way. Story was good, abridged didn't hurt it as bad on this book.

    "I love this series"

    I started listening to audiobooks with the Legacy of the Force series and this got me hooked! incredible storyline (often described as Epic by myself and friends who have been forced to listen now and then) with original sound effects and original music - and great voices for each character (Bobba Fett and Han are perfect in my opinion) I really recommend this!
