Publisher's Summary

No sooner has Darth Vader's funeral pyre burned to ashes on Endor than the Alliance intercepts a call for help from a far-flung Imperial outpost. Bakura is on the edge of known space and the first to meet the Ssi-ruuk, cold-blooded reptilian invaders who, once allied with the now dead Emperor, are approaching Imperial space with only one goal: total domination.
Princess Leia sees the mission as an opportunity to achieve a diplomatic victory for the Alliance. But it assumes even greater importance when a vision of Obi-Wan Kenobi appears to Luke Skywalker with the message that he must go to Bakura - or risk losing everything the Rebels have fought so desperately to achieve.

Bakura Review

This book is not necessary to read in order to understand future books. Well written, lacks humor, descriptions of situations gives the listener a great visual.

Great book, disappointed with the audiobook

Read this in paperback years ago and was excited to revisit it with this audiobook. The abridged version gets the gist of the story, but three hours really doesn't do it justice. It was sad knowing how much was missing here. Although the reading did improve dramatically after the first 20 minutes (narrator forgot to stop to breath lol), he kept pronouncing words funny ("Han", "Palpatine", etc) and his characterization of voices felt way off. It's like he'd never even watched the movies himself. My suggestion? Skip this one and grab the paperback instead.
