Publisher's Summary

In Children of the Jedi, Barbara Hambly introduces a new character: Callista, a brave Jedi warrior of long ago who gave her life to foil one of the Empire's darkest plans, a plot to destroy a stronghold that was a sanctuary for the families of Jedi knights.
The plot involved a dreadnaught, one of the Empire's most devious inventions, governed by a sophisticated artificial intelligence. Crippled during the war against the Empire, the vessel has drifted through space for years. But now it is slowly reactivating and resuming its inexorable mission. Only Luke Skywalker can feel its evil presence as well as the mysterious influence of that powerful woman who should have died decades ago.

not a big fan of the abridged

learn how to pronounce coruscant. there was a lot of jumping around in the story too so it was difficult to keep up with. how about an unabridged version?

the story does not flow

Where does Star Wars: Children of the Jedi rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was ok, it was hard to keep track of the story and you NEVER find out what happen to the "Children of the Jedi"

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

the thought that there are other people on the empires side that were not killed on the Death Star and what they are now doing.

What about Anthony Heald’s performance did you like?

Very Good

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