Publisher's Summary

Repercussions from the dark side's fatal seduction of Jacen Solo and the mysterious plague of madness afflicting young Jedi continue to wreak havoc galaxy-wide. Having narrowly escaped the deranged Force worshippers known as the Mind Walkers, and a deadly Sith hit squad, Luke and Ben Skywalker are in pursuit of the now masterless Sith apprentice. It is a chase that leads to the forbidding planet Dathomir, where an enclave of powerful dark-side Force-wielders will give Vestara the edge she needs to escape - and where the Skywalkers will be forced into combat for their quarry and their lives.
Meanwhile, Han and Leia have completed their own desperate mission, shuttling madness-stricken Jedi from Coruscant to a safe haven in the Transitory Mists and beyond the grasp of Galactic Alliance Chief of State Natasi Daala. But the bold maneuver has intensified Daalas fury, and she is determined to shatter Jedi Order resistance once and for all.
Yet no greater threat exists than that which still waits in the depths of the distant Maw Cluster: a being of pure, ravenous dark-side energy named Abeloth calls out across the stars to Jedi and Sith alike. For some it may be the ultimate source of answers crucial to their survival. For others it could be the ultimate weapon of conquest. But for all, it is a game-changing and life-altering encounter of untold magnitude and a tactical gambit with unimaginable consequences.

Engaging

I really liked the audio-back version of Backlash. March Thompson really helps bring the story to life with his impersonations of the various characters. His Luke Skywalker and Han Solo voices are pretty dead-on and really sound like Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford, making them truly sound like the characters.

His characterizations of the Sith, the Dathomiri, The GA officials, Imperial officials, and other characters give a sense of the story that just reading the book the normal way does not.

I'd highly recommend any Star Wars audiobook who has Marc Thompson as the narrator/character voices.

Chess Moves!

incredible plot for this book, every turn was difficult to calculate and when whichever character eventually made their move it was decisive and created an even more complex scenario for either the protagonist or antagonist (depends on which side you are on) to manuever out of. Great Book, highly recommended!

Story dragged

Narrator excellent as always. Production good. Story dragged on and on. Author paid by the page for this one. But I ploughed on regardless.
