Publisher's Summary

On the planet Tython, the ancient Je’daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force - and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je’daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy.
Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je’daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency. The leader of a fanatical cult, obsessed with traveling beyond the reaches of known space, is bent on opening a cosmic gateway using dreaded dark matter as the key - risking a cataclysmic reaction that will consume the entire star system. But more shocking to Lanoree than even the prospect of total galactic annihilation, is the decision of her Je’daii Masters to task her with the mission of preventing it. Until a staggering revelation makes clear why she was chosen: The brilliant, dangerous madman she must track down and stop at any cost is the brother whose death she has long grieved - and whose life she must now fear.

Sharp writing and a great story!

What made the experience of listening to Into the Void: Star Wars the most enjoyable?

Tim Lebbon's world building and prose. The man can write this stuff!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Into the Void: Star Wars?

The whole thing was so good that I can't really select one moment. And I really can't say that about too many recent Star Wars novels.

Have you listened to any of January LaVoy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Nope. She was pretty good. I enjoyed hearing a woman's voice in a Star Wars book with a female protagonist. Marc Thompson is pure awesome and all but this was a nice change. I felt January made it easier to feel like we were inside Lanoree's head.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The climax of the novel was very emotional.

Any additional comments?

Lebbon does an outstanding job inter-cutting a flashback of Lanoree's Je'daii training with her brother, Dal, and her pursuit of him 9 years later. It gave the novel a balance and depth that it wouldn't have had had Lebbon simply stuck with the chase and nothing but. It also serves to explain the differences between the modern Jedi and the ancient Je'daii.

Pleasant surprise, best SW novels of late

What, no Marc Thompson?!? He pretty much makes or breaks any SW audiobook. He's like that familiar security blanket. And he's dang good.

But so was January LaVoy. Though she's no Marc Thompson, she rises to the challenge and exceeded my expectations, and quite frankly, I enjoyed her more than other non-Marc Thompson SW narrators. Not only that, it was fitting to have a female narrator with a novel that featured a female Jed'aii front and center.

Now, the story. I've been quite disappointed with the direction of SW novels as of late. Not enough to turn me away completely, but I think the quality of the stuff coming out lately has not been as great, the overarching story arcs/time frames (The Old Republic, namely) has been lacking for me.

This has revived my interest. This story is extremely interesting and opened up a whole new door in the SW universe. I still have some unanswered questions on the background (maybe I should read the comic book series) but perhaps as this period in the SW canon becomes more developed (here's hoping...) the answers will become more apparent. But there is a lot of potential in this time period that I am hoping for more to come out...

a very clever story

Where does Into the Void: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Book 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

mid to high

Who was your favorite character and why?

i can't say that i have a favourite character, but they are significantly different to the shall we say modern day Jedi.

What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

January is a new reader for the Star Wars extended universe. it's fitting that she reads a book set in a time when there are none of the usual characters you would expect to see in a star wars story. I would have to compare this story with another story where January reads with well known characters in it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes but i found it quite hard going at first so i had to spread it over multiple sittings.

Any additional comments?

this story is definitely worth a read. especially when you look at the attitudes to the light and dark sides of the force from then and make coparisons to the republic and beyond era's. most interesting indeed.

As usual - Outstanding!

What did you like most about Into the Void: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Book 2?

I was a bit dubious downloading this as it was book 2 - but as with most of these books you dont miss out too much! I am looking forward to Book 1 being released here but this doesnt detract from this outstanding story! set before pretty much any of the star wars books out there it is a more - human- version of star wars. Outstanding story read perfectly by the author with the usual mix of star wars sound effects and musical scores - I highly recommend this!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Into the Void: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Book 2?

Listening to the differences in the early jedi philosophies - very different and interesting.

Have you listened to any of January LaVoy’s other performances? How does this one compare?

First time I have listened to this reader but she was very good!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes if I could have I would have (much like all the star wars ones)

Any additional comments?

I would like book 1 to be released here but love book 2 as well!

absolutely awesome performance

an amazing performance failed only by the ending.
The story helped create an image of the culture of what was to split and become the Jedi and Sith, but the ending failed to actually tell us anything about how they eventually left the Tython system and mingled with the Galaxy at large.
I found myself sympathizing more with Dal than Lannery, largely thanks to most the way through having the notion (incorrectly) that he would succeed in his mission and it wouldn't be cataclysmic as predicted, and it would be this that frees their people into the Galaxy, and the fear driven arrogance of the Je'daii would be proven wrong and this would lead to the evolution into Jedi and Sith.
so I was disappointed when nothing came of Dal's great mission and we never even get to learn about either his machine or the hypergate.... really undercut the story build up.

good story

it was a good story but the narrator could have been more diverse in their performance. The order of these books to be listened to could be more defined, it would make it easier to follow.
