This thirteenth entry in the New Jedi Order series drops the listener into a story centering on Jacen Solo, son of Han and Leia Solo. Listeners not familiar with the series will be lost in the midst of the New Republic's long-standing war with the Yuuzhan Vong and other unfamiliar characters, but fans of the series will be delighted. Jonathan Davis, the narrator of many Star Wars audios, continues to do a fine job voicing each character and creating a sense of suspense throughout his performance. Davis's skill is combined with the liberal use of sound effects and John Williams's famous score to make a nearly cinematic listening experience. Star Wars fans will be on the lookout for more. A.F.
