    Description

    After a violent civil war and the devastation wrought by the now-fallen Darth Caedus, the Galactic Alliance is in crisis and in need. From all corners, politicians, power brokers, and military leaders converge on Coruscant for a crucial summit to restore order, negotiate differences, and determine the future of their unified worlds. But even more critical, and far more uncertain, is the future of the Jedi.

    In a shocking move, Chief of State Natasi Daala orders the arrest of Luke Skywalker for failing to prevent Jacen Solo's turn to the dark side and his subsequent reign of terror as a Sith Lord. But it's only the first blow in an anti-Jedi backlash fueled by a hostile government and suspicious public. When Jedi Knight Valin Horn, scion of a politically influential family, suffers a mysterious psychotic break and becomes a dangerous fugitive, the Jedi become the target of a media-driven witch hunt. Facing conviction on the damning charges, Luke must strike a bargain with the calculating Daala: his freedom in exchange for his exile from Coruscant and from the Jedi Order.

    Though forbidden to intervene in Jedi affairs, Luke is determined to keep history from being repeated. With his son, Ben, at his side, Luke sets out to unravel the shocking truth behind Jacen Solo's corruption and downfall. But the secrets he uncovers among the enigmatic Force mystics of the distant world Dorin may bring his quest and life as he knows it to a sudden end. And all the while, another Jedi Knight, consumed by the same madness as Valin Horn, is headed for Coruscant on a fearsome mission that could doom the Jedi Order and devastate the entire galaxy.

    This Series has Potential, but off to a slow start

    This was definitely not one of my favorite books from the Star Wars Expanded Universe. It picks up where the Legacy of the Force series left off and Jacen Solo's betrayal to the Jedi Order will obviously have repercussions for the future of the Jedi and it's Grand Master Luke Skywalker. I won't give away any spoilers, but "Outcast" seems more like a setup book for a more elaborate plot in the series than a grand adventure itself. Unfortunately this book does not stand alone on its own accord. It will be interesting to see how this series plays out. I sure hope that the rest of the authors aren't as obsessed about Coffee, or 'caf' as its known in the Star Wars universe. I got tired of hearing about every character, either NOT having their morning caf or needing some caf, or going to get caf, or offering another character caf. It got old, REALLY QUICK, but unfortunately continued throughout the book. Overall, the book was average ~ not great, and not bad either, but the series has potential.

    Star Wars books worth the Price

    I truly am a big Star Wars fan. These books being read to me is like watching a new movie when a book comes out. Fate of Jedi is the same. This is suppose to be a nine book series. I am waiting for the third book already.
    The Star Wars books on Audible is enough for me to keep with Audible.

    Only book 1

    What did you love best about Star Wars?

    The voice acting is spot on. The music and sound effects are what I expect and love.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars?

    The climax, for this book, for me, was Luke & son figuring their way out of their dilemma. The mines were also excellent.

    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    He mostly narrates, so he fills the visual gaps well.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I don't recall laughing. There were no tearful incidents to induce tears.

    Any additional comments?

    Well done. On to book 2!

    Great start to a new series

    If they ever think about making movies out of another series in the Star Wars universe this may be the one to choose. Bottom line, narration is great, sound effects add depth, and storyline kept my interest from beginning to end. I am looking forward to listening to Outcast.

    A Must Read for any Star Wars fan

    I don't know what is better about this book - the writing or the voice acting by Marc Thompson. Marc Thompson always brings an A+ effort, not only changing his voice to reflect the character that is talking but the known characters (Luke, Leia, Han, Lando, etc) and are always consistent & sound great for those none regular cast (Allana, Tenel Ka, Sith characters, Ves).
    Highly recommend this entire series - plus it's the whole unabridged book.

    Fun Ride

    The Story doesn't feel as grand and epic as Legacy of the Force and more like a slow paced TV Series. for now at least.
    but it makes more then up for it with it's characters and their interactions, as well as quite a bit of humour. Luke and his son Ben are such a delight to follow and definitely my highlight of the Episode.

    EinMann HanLeiaLukeLandoJainaEtc

    Der Sprecher hat zugegebenermaßen eine stark amerikanische Aussprache, an die ich mich aber schnell gewöhnt hatte. Was dieses Hörbuch m.E. aber top macht sind nicht nur die Soundeffekt und die original Musik der Filme, die aus diesem Download Kino für die Ohren machen und einem helfen sich in den verschiedenen Schauplätzen zu 'verankern'. Vielmehr finde ich die sprachliche Leistung des Interpreten phänomenal. Jeder einzelne Charakter erhält eine eigene Stimme und die Ausdrucksweise der bekannten Helden wird z. T. unglaublich gut kopiert. Besonders auffallend sind C-3PO und Lando Calrissian, die direkt aus dem Film gesprungen zu sein scheinen. (Ich bin versucht zu glauben, dass Marc Thompson Billy Dee Williams in den Filmen synchronisiert hat.)

    Abstriche gibt es nur bei einigen Soundeffekten (der Spaceship Sound kann einem bei längeren Passagen auf die Nerven gehen) und bei einigen wenigen Fehlbetonungen in der Syntax.

    Insgesamt ein toller Sprecher eine gute Story (bin jetzt bis Band 5) und ein Hörerlebnis.

    Gewöhnungsbedürftiger Sprecher

    Sterneabzug gibt's nur wegen dem Sprecher, weil ich mit der Art und Weise, wie er das Buch spricht, sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig finde. Ich brauchte gut die Hälfte des Buches, bis ich mich an Han Solo & Co. gewöhnte. Zwischenzeitlich geht's ganz gut und werde mir die Nachfolger noch holen. Die Story gefällt mir.
