The Force is with Jonathan Davis as he reads the twelfth installment of the New Jedi Order series. Twenty-five years after the events in STAR WARS EPISODE IV: A NEW HOPE (and sixty years after STAR WARS EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE) the new Jedi Knights, along with Luke and Mara Jade Skywalker, Han and Leia Organa Solo, are struggling against Yuuzhan Vong invaders who have taken over the New Republic when they come against a genetically enhanced Dark Jedi. The program's three hours aren't adequate for the novel's many subplots. As such, listeners may be left confused by the gaps. But Davis's reading is perfect, and the music and sound effects do well to enhance the story's stellar flavor. S.E.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
