Description

New York Times best seller

For the infamous, power-hungry Sith, beholden to the dark side, the time has come to rise again.

After years of waiting in the shadows, Darth Sidious is taking the first step in his master plan to bring the Republic to its knees. Key to his scheme are the Neimoidians of the Trade Federation. Then one of his Neimoidian contacts disappears, and Sidious does not need his Force-honed instincts to suspect betrayal. He orders his apprentice, Darth Maul, to hunt the traitor down.

But he is too late. The secret has already passed into the hands of information broker Lorn Pavan, which places him right at the top of Darth Maul's hit list. Then, in the labyrinthine alleyways and sewers of Coruscant, capital city of the Republic, Lorn crosses paths with Darsha Assant, a Jedi Padawan on a mission to earn her Knighthood. Now the future of the Republic depends on Darsha and Lorn. But how can an untried Jedi and an ordinary man, stranger to the powerful ways of the Force, hope to triumph over one of the deadliest killers in the galaxy?

This special edition features an all-new Darth Maul short story as well as “Star Wars:® Darth Maul: Saboteur” - both written by New York Times best-selling author James Luceno!

Maul story good, sound effects horrible.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Simply put, the effects were horrible...this is Star Wars, and soundboards for it are a dime a dozen, so I was more than a little shocked by the production value...A dirt bike putt-putt sound for speeder bikes? REALLY!? I was honestly unable to immerse myself in this a-book because I kept listening for all of the misused sound effects.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars?
The story in Star Wars: Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter is interesting because it explores Coruscant's lower levels in a way that has not been done yet. The story moved along nicely, and Maul's capabilities in skills other than lightsaber combat are exposed to a decent degree.

What three words best describe Michael Cumpsty’s voice?
The narrator, Michael Cumpsty, breathed life into the characters and delivered the goods in an otherwise mediocre to shoddy Star Wars Production. Michael was able to emote all of the character well, the rogue was rough, Maul was focused and sinister, and the Jedi Padawan character sounded uncertain of her skill, and Jedi-like in her approach to the problems at hand.

Was Star Wars worth the listening time?
This book was worth the time and money if you have credits to burn...if you are looking for a big bang for real $$, this is not it.

Any additional comments?
I am shocked that George Lucas has not had the sound effects remastered on this audiobook yet...only slightly less shocking is that he allowed this to roll-out in the first place.

Excellent!

As a Star Wars fan, I really enjoyed this book. The writer pulls you right into the Star Wars universe! I read the book, listened to the audiobook, and I find myself doing it over and over again. It's a must have if you're a Star Wars fan.

Enjoyed it

My only complaint is the abridged nature of the story. Wish it had been a longer more drawn out version. I am not one that subscribes to the belief reporter short is the way to go.

Make way for the Bad Guy...

Would you listen to Star Wars again? Why?

Yes, if they featured a character as interesting as Darth Maul.

What other book might you compare Star Wars to and why?

Stainless Steel Rat Series by Harry Harrison - thye are both Science Fiction action adventure.

Which character – as performed by Michael Cumpsty – was your favorite?

Darth Maul (of course!)

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The DARK Force is strong in this one.

Any additional comments?

I wish they had included the short 52 page story that was in the paper back version: Darth Maul: Saboteur by James Luceno. I felt let down when it wasn't part of the audio version.

More Maul please!

No regrets

Definitely could have been better, not that it was horrible. Sound effects were a little too much. Was hoping it would have centered more around maul. The side story wasn't bad though.

The Foley artist should be hanged.

The Vietnamese scooter as a speeder bike and generic light sabre sounds that are out of sync with the story, had me irked. But over all, the story was great.
