Publisher's Summary

Forty years after the Battle of Yavin, a dangerous new era in the Star Wars epic begins: the revelations are shocking, the stakes desperate, and the enemy everywhere.

As civil war threatens the unity of the Galactic Alliance, Han and Leia Solo have enraged their families and the Jedi by joining the Corellian insurgents. But the Solos draw the line when they discover the rebels' plot to make the Hapan Consortium an ally, which rests upon Hapan nobles murdering their pro-Alliance queen and her daughter.

Yet the Solos' selfless determination to save the queen cannot dispel the inescapable consequences of their actions, which will pit mother against son and brother against sister in the battles ahead. For as Jacen Solo's dark powers grow stronger under the Dark Jedi Lumiya, and his influence over Ben Skywalker becomes more insidious, Luke's concern for his nephew forces him into a life-and-death struggle against his fiercest foe. And Han and Leia Solo find themselves at the mercy of their deadliest enemy: their son.

Great Because of Sounds and Music

Having read lots of the Star Wars books, and sometimes getting bored in the more daunting parts, I really enjoyed this audiobook because of the rich sound effects, the wide range of well-selected John Williams music, and altered pacing. This, combined with the narrator's many affected voices, make the story much more exciting for me.

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.

Wow! What a story.

This is really good writing, great character development. It’s too bad aspects this story arc isn’t part of the current movie franchise. Good stuff!

The Force Is Strong With This One

What did you love best about Star Wars: Legacy of the Force #3: Tempest?

The story. It's by far the best book in the series.

What other book might you compare Star Wars: Legacy of the Force #3: Tempest to and why?

No book really comes to mind, at least nothing outside of the Star Wars universe.

What does Marc Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His acting makes this book come to life, and is probably the reason I enjoyed it so much. There was one section where he decides to use the Nemoidian accent. And, well... if you've seen Phantom Menace, you know what's wrong there.

Other than that he's superb, and makes these worth listening to.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The ending was both really exciting and a little depressing. The action scenes also had me gripped, I really wasn't able to focus on anything else while those were going on.

Any additional comments?

I'm super happy that I found the audio versions of these novels. I'm sure the book is great, but the audio adds that addition layer that you just don't get from the printed novels.

Abridgement Not Worth It

I am disappointed in Del Rey that they have put this series out in such a butchered, abridged format. Entire chapters and story points are missing from this abridgement which are very jarring if you have read the book. Star Wars fans expect a lot, and we didn't get it from these abridgements. I was actually hoping I could stop reading the actual books and just listen to the audiobooks because my reading time is limited. But, after listening to this one and seeing how much they left out, I won't be doing that. I am glad to see they have come to their senses and done unabridged audiobooks of the Fate of the Jedi series. When I get done with actually reading Legacy of the Force, I will listen to those audiobooks. But, I won't buy another abridged Star Wars novel after this.

Get Immersed in the SW Universe

This is my third installment in the series and I like it. It's entertaining and keeps you wondering how powerful the evil side of the universe truly is. Don't hesitate to get the series Marc Thompson is amazing the story is genuine and it's (for me) a must have!

Abridged sucks!

I would rate these as 5 stars if they weren't butchered errrr abridged. Marc Thompson is outstanding although I wish he'd used the Han voice from the Thrawn series. I'd love to know why they have to shorten the books for audio.

Addictive

Amazing tempo that banishes any hint of a lull or low point in the turmoil that is caused by the building conflict between Corellia and the Galactic alliance. The rift that is caused by Han's home planet loyalty and his son Jacen Solo's loyalty to the Galactic Alliance Security force is a rollercoaster ride! Add in the fact that Jacen is falling to the darkside, (even dressing like vader and force choking underlings) and you have suspense and tangible conflict that will have you begging for more. This is my favorite book in the series so far. The only downside is the abridging .
