The title BETRAYAL certainly understates the events of this audiobook as Luke Skywalker and friends find themselves engrossed in an intergalactic political quagmire that will pit Jedi against Jedi and Skywalker's kin against one another. The intensity of this first book in a series of nine is magnified with Marc Thompson behind the microphone. He delivers the story in a steady and energetic voice that captures the essence of the characters. It seems only natural that sound effects and background music round out this audiobook. The producers paid great attention to the nostalgic sound elements of the original movies. The snap-hiss of light sabers and beeping of R2D2 make listening that much more enjoyable.
