Publisher's Summary

It is a perilous time for the New Republic. Just when unity is needed most, mistrust is on the rise. Even the Jedi feel the strain, as rogue elements rebel against Luke's leadership. When alien invaders known as the Yunnan Vong strike without warning, the New Republic is thrown on the defensive. Merciless warriors, the Yunnan Vong glory in torture. Their technology is as strange as it is deadly. Most ominous of all, they are impervious to the Force.
Now Luke must wield all the awesome powers of a Jedi Master to defeat the gravest threat since Darth Vader. As Leia and Gavin Darklighter lead desperate refugees in a fighting retreat from Yunnan Vong forces, Mara Jade, Anakin, Jacen, and Corran Horn find themselves tested as never before by a faceless, implacable foe determined to smother the light of the New Republic forever beneath a shroud of darkest evil.

Good continuation of the NJO series

If you could sum up Star Wars in three words, what would they be?

Classic moral myth.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Anakin was my favorite character. He is being shaped to be the best Jedi of his generation.

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

The inflection, tone, and exclamations bring the story to life. Anthony Heald has narrated several SW books, and I became familiar with his style. He was like an old friend telling a story.

Any additional comments?

This book brings us deeper into the world of the Yuuzhan Vong. We begin to learn more about their culture, and how different it is from that of the New Republic. They seem very powerful and cruel, verging on the sadistic. But we see signs that they are not invincible. This is part 1 of a duology within the NJO series.

- Terryn "I like Star Wars, Foundation series, Redwall Series, Bloody Jack series, and westerns for fiction. In nonfiction, I like books about Catholic theology, American history and government, and economics."

Feel like I've been ripped off

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Nobody, should be ripped off. It's like it's less than 25% of the story.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Done the entire story.

What character would you cut from Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Dark Tide I: Onslaught?


Any additional comments?

Do the whole story not an abridged version. I feel like I've been ripped off. Don't even want to keep Audible. The fact that the book is abridged should be highly visible.
