Inhaltsangabe

As ruthless apprentice to Darth Vader, Starkiller was mercilessly schooled in the ways of the dark side, commanded to exterminate the last of the purged Jedi Order, and groomed for the ultimate Sith power play: assassination of the Emperor. He served without question, killed without remorse, and lost his heart without warning to beautiful Imperial fighter pilot Juno Eclipse, never suspecting that he was just a tool in the schemes of his masters - until it was too late to escape their lethal betrayal.

Juno mourned Starkiller as dead...but now he is back, purged of all memories and programmed to kill. And as fate brings Juno and Starkiller closer to reuniting, with Darth Vader determined not to lose his assassin a second time, they will both have to make a stand. The prize is freedom. The punishment for failing will be eternal enslavement to the dark side of the Force...

A great introspective, personal Star Wars book

A marvelous book! The characters are all around likable and well developed. While still rich in action like its predecessor, this installment of Starkiller's story arc is a much more personal book.

The story ties neatly into the early stages of the Rebel Alliance, but remains mostly a character study of Juno and Starkiller. I was very fond of experiencing assertive Juno Eclipse alongside Bail Organa as a member of a covert rebel mission on Dac. The characters are introspective and self-aware, something not commonly seen in Star Wars novels beyond those authored by Matthew Stover. PROXY and Kota make a comeback and get to participate in the action without feeling superfluous.

The only thing bothering me most with Star Wars audiobooks is the somewhat overacted narration. That, however, is common with audiobooks made for the American market.
