This title has a frustrating incompleteness about it. The listener knows that much came before, and much will be resolved later. It seems that Anakin Skywalker's (aka Darth Vader's) grandson, Jedi Jason Solo, is being lured to the dark side of the Force-the Sith side. It's a family drama featuring most of the surviving central characters-Master Luke, Han, Leia, and their children. Reader Marc Thompson does not attempt to impersonate the characters, but rather to speak for them in their intonations and pacings and accents, but with his own well-controlled voice. As always, the sound effects-intercoms, light sabers, laser cannon, John Williams's music--are understated and highly effective. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
