    Description

    This is the era of Luke Skywalker’s legacy: The Jedi Master has unified the order into a cohesive group of powerful Jedi Knights. But as the new era begins, planetary interests threaten to disrupt this time of relative peace, and Luke is plagued with visions of an approaching darkness. Evil is rising again - out of the best intentions - and it looks as if the legacy of the Skywalkers may come full circle. Honor and duty will collide with friendship and blood ties as the Skywalker and Solo clans find themselves on opposing sides of an explosive conflict with potentially devastating repercussions for both families, for the Jedi order, and for the entire galaxy. 

    When a mission to uncover an illegal missile factory on the planet Adumar ends in a violent ambush - from which Jedi Knight Jacen Solo and his protégé and cousin, Ben Skywalker, narrowly escape with their lives - it’s the most alarming evidence yet that sparks of political unrest are threatening to ignite into total rebellion. The governments of numerous worlds are chafing under the strict regulations of the Galactic Alliance, and diplomatic efforts to enforce compliance are failing. Fearing the worst, the Alliance readies a preemptive display of military might in a bid to bring the rogue worlds in line before an uprising erupts. The designated target of this exercise: planet Corellia - renowned for the brash independence and renegade spirit that have made its favorite son, Han Solo, a legend. 

    Something of a rogue himself, Jacen is nevertheless duty bound as a Jedi to stand with his uncle, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, on the side of the Galactic Alliance. But when the wary Corellians launch a counterstrike, the Alliance’s show of force - and a secret mission to disable Corellia’s crucial Centerpoint Station - give way to an armed skirmish. 

    Once the smoke clears, the battle lines are drawn. Now, the specter of full-scale war looms between a growing cadre of defiant planets and the Galactic Alliance that some fear is becoming a new Empire. And even as both sides struggle to find a diplomatic solution, mysterious acts of treachery and sabotage threaten peace efforts at every turn.

    Determined to root out those behind the mayhem, Jacen follows a trail of cryptic clues to a dark rendezvous with the most shocking of revelations...while Luke grapples with something even more troubling: dream visions of a shadowy figure whose Force power and ruthlessness remind him of Darth Vader - a lethal enemy who strikes like a dark spirit on a mission of doom. An agent of evil who, if Luke’s visions come to pass, will bring untold pain to the Jedi Master...and to the entire galaxy.

    Commentaires

    "Fans of the Star Wars universe will be impressed by Allston's deft handling of the complicated issues raised in the novel, particularly how yesterday's rebels fill their roles as leaders. The novel boasts a shocking ending, one guaranteed to hook readers for the duration of the series." ( Booklist)

    Horrible abridge version.

    This was my 34th Star Wars audio book and it is the 1st one i'm extrême disapointed with. This abridge version is horrible and frustrating. while i don' have a single bad thing to say about Marc Thompsons performance i am sorry to say that who ever made the cuts on this audiobook ruined it. i will not pick up the next ones of the next legacy of the force books as long as an unabridged version isn t available.

    Abridged to death!

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Wow, this is the first time abridging a book has resulted in it being completely incomprehensible. The reading jumps from scene to scene leaving out details that would have explained why the characters are now in this new location. I could barely make it through the first hour of this one before demanding a refund.

    Please replace this one with an unabridged version.

    What was most disappointing about Aaron Allston’s story?

    The reader was good and they added some cool sound effects and of course Star Wars theme music. So no fault of the performers.

    Would you listen to another book narrated by Marc Thompson?

    yes

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Star Wars?

    The opposite. Put scenes back until a comprehensible story emerges. Here's an idea: It's not that long a book. How about putting it all back?

    Too abridged

    It seems that every Star Wars book is abridged and sound effects added, and this is no exception.

    I have a well worn copy of this book that I've read at least 10 times, and my son has read as many times. So I thought I'd get the audible to listen to on a motorcycle ride.

    The sound effects were much louder than the reading and became almost painful when they would BLARE in my helmet unexpectedly.

    The story was so chopped up that if I hadn't read the book, I wouldn't have known why somethings were happening.

    I won't be wasting my money on any more abridged Star Wars books.

    Very well done! Worth a listen!

    Very well done for a Star Wars audiobook. Even though it is abridged, the 6 hour run-time leaves enough material to make this audiobook entertaining. That said, you can still notice gaps where, I assume, material was cut out for the abridgement. This can be annoying after a while. I won't beat around the bush, I loathe any abridgement and I would encourage people to complain to the publisher so that they will begin releasing unabridged versions of these books. Other than that, this book was excellent. Marc Thompson is one of the most talented narrators that I have heard. It is a pleasure to listen to him. The different character voices that he assumes throughout the book are executed flawlessly and I had to keep reminding myself that it was the same person speaking. The writing, sound production, and music were all top notch. I would give this 5 stars if not for the abridgement.

    One last thing, stay away from any of the star wars audiobooks that are less than 6 hours in length. They are so butchered by the abridgements, that they are not worth your time or money. Quite a few of these are narrated by Anthony Heald and he is just plain awful. I found this out the hard way. Just remember, Anthony Heald = extremely poor narration. Jonathan Davis = Extremely good narration. Marc Thompson = Outstanding narration.

    No More Abridged Books

    I've been a huge Star Wars fan since I was kid and saw the original movie for a friend's birthday party on May 29, 1977, but I don't think I'll be buying any more SW books...

    A) The abridged versions are terrible. A big part of the SW universe is the description, most of which is cut out in the abridgement.

    2) The current and future books are all in nine-or-ten part series. It seems like the authors and publishers are just stringing the readers along... A single story from beginning to end costs well over $100.

    Hack, cut, slash.

    What disappointed you about Star Wars: Legacy of the Force #1: Betrayal?

    A lot of hacking, cutting, to many holes, I felt as I was tossed under a bus.

    Any additional comments?

    Stop hacking and slashing books.

    Very Abridged

    This was the first Star Wars book I ever read many years ago. I still remembered many points in the story that I enjoyed, whether they were character development, relationship building/defining between the characters, various events that fleshed out the story, or even insights into the mind of the "villan" and how they created the end result they desired. To my disappointment, most of the things I remembered having an impact on me were removed from this story.

    If you're looking for (or can be satisfied with) a bare-bones plot version of a spectacular book, this is for you. But, if you want to understand not just how things happened but why, if you want to understand the characters, their motivations, and their emotions behind the things they do and the struggles they have, you'll have to read the book.

    Going to read book...

    Was it good? Yes. Marc Thompson was great, although he's usually spot on with Hans Solo and it wasn't quite as precise this time.

    I need the omitted info to try and make better sense about the storyline. I hope unabridged versions come available one day.

    always put the whole book never abridged

    everything was great except for the fact it was abridged. Please fix that the Star Wars books in the entire day are the only way to go. you could definitely tell where the rest of the story was needed

    Super Star Wars Geschichte

    Super Geschichte. Leider gehört sie nicht mehr zum Kanon. Trotzdem ist sie das Hören/Lesen wert. Und wenn dann noch die originale Musik im Hintergrund spielt ist Gänsehaut angesagt. Die Geschichte ist zwar auf englisch, ich hatte aber keinerlei Probleme beim verstehen

    Slow start of the story

    Many new characters got introduced and its hard to keep track when you haven’t read other books related to the characters. For the sound there are not properly made cuts between the chapters otherwise awesome voices and sound effects and music.

    Weird cuts

    So nothing to say about the story, it's great. My problem lies with the weird and abrupt cuts between the chapters. Nothing to serious but really annoying.
