But all Jacen wants is safety and stability for all - and he's prepared to do whatever it takes to achieve that goal.As the strands of destiny draw ever more tightly together in a galaxy-spanning web, the shocking conclusion will shatter two families and cast a grim shadow over the future.More

Such a Drastic Improvement Over Exile
Probably the best so far. Despite some plot points that just make me angry, this is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to.
Of course! I find her to be one of my favorite Star Wars writers, so I'll probably be picking up her Republic Commando series soon!
Everything! Thompson is so great, and combined with the sound effects and music, he's really what makes these worth the audio format.
Not really, mostly because I don't have 6 and a half spare hours to listen to audiobooks. I have to space out my reading. 15 minutes in the car on the way to work, during lunch while I eat, etc. I have no doubt this would be something I could binge read.
There is a certain story point. One that I won't spoil, but one that understandably upset a majority of the Star Wars audience when they read, or at least found out, what happened. It's something that makes me angry, and a total waste of a character.
A more positive note is the relationship between Mara and Ben. Father's are the central theme in Star Wars (at least in stories involving the Skywalkers). So it's nice to have a mother/son relationship being more developed. Of course Luke is still here, but it's made abundantly clear that Ben has a more loving and focused relationship with his mother, and I really wish that was in here more.
Also, I love how Traviss basically undoes the last novel. She shows Mara being pissed off with Luke's hand gesture with Lumiya bullcrap at the end of Exile, she nearly avoids all mention of Ben's trip to Ziost and whatever that amulet was, and while that weird Sith ship is still present, she at least makes it (somewhat) more interesting.
The production values are back to where they were in the first few novels, the story is getting more interesting, the tide is turning with these characters, and despite me not being able to take the way Jacen pronounces his new name seriously, I'm looking forward to what's coming next!
