Description

The Jedi Order is in crisis. The late Jacen Solo's shocking transformation into murderous Sith Lord Darth Caedus has cast a damning pall over those who wield the Force for good: Two Jedi Knights have succumbed to an inexplicable and dangerous psychosis, criminal charges have driven Luke Skywalker into self-imposed exile, and power-hungry Chief of State Natasi Daala is exploiting anti-Jedi sentiment to undermine the Order's influence within the Galactic Alliance.

Forbidden to intervene in Jedi affairs, Luke is on a desperate mission to uncover the truth behind Jacen's fall to the dark side - and to learn what's turning peaceful Jedi into raving lunatics.

But finding answers will mean venturing into the mind-bending space of the Kathol Rift and bargaining with an alien species as likely to destroy outsiders as deal with them. Still, there is no other choice, and no time to lose, as the catastrophic events on Coruscant continue to escalate.

Stricken by the same violent dementia that infected her brother, Valin, Jedi Knight Jysella Horn faces an equally grim fate after her capture by Natasi Daala's police. And when Han and Leia Solo narrowly foil another deranged Jedi bent on deadly destruction, even acting Jedi Grand Master Kenth Hamner appears willing to bow to Daala's iron will - at the expense of the Jedi Order.

But an even greater threat is looming. Millennia in the past, a Sith starship crashed on an unknown low-tech planet, leaving the survivors stranded. Over the generations, their numbers have grown, the ways of the dark side have been nurtured, and the time is fast approaching when this lost tribe of Sith will once more take to the stars to reclaim their legendary destiny as rulers of the galaxy. Only one thing stands in their way, a name whispered to them through the Force: Skywalker.

Omen: Book - 2

If you could sum up Star Wars in three words, what would they be?

I am writing this review after listening to the first 5 books in the series. Omen has been my favorite book yet. Ben Skywalker grows considerably in this book, and I like the dynamic between him and Luke. The author captures that teenage attitude well. The story line is starting to heat up.

I would listen to the Star Wars books in the following order:

The Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zahn
Heir to the Empire
Dark Force Rising
The Last Command

The Hand of Thrawn Duology by Timothy Zahn
Specter of the Past
Vision of the Future

The Legacy of the Force series
Legacy of the Force: Betrayal by Aaron Allston
Legacy of the Force: Bloodlines by Karen Traviss
Legacy of the Force: Tempest by Troy Denning
Legacy of the Force: Exile by Aaron Allston
Legacy of the Force: Sacrifice by Karen Traviss
Legacy of the Force: Inferno by Troy Denning
Legacy of the Force: Fury by Aaron Allston
Legacy of the Force: Revelation by Karen Traviss
Legacy of the Force: Invincible by Troy Denning

The Fate of the Jedi series
Fate of the Jedi: Outcast by Aaron Allston
Fate of the Jedi: Omen by Christie Golden
Fate of the Jedi: Abyss by Troy Denning
Fate of the Jedi: Backlash by Aaron Allston
Fate of the Jedi: Allies by Christie Golden
Fate of the Jedi: Vortex by Troy Denning
Fate of the Jedi: Conviction by Aaron Allston
Fate of the Jedi: Ascension by Christie Golden
Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse by Troy Denning

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

Be sure to listen to the Thrawn books before these.

What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

Legendary

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Luke: "What's one of the first things you learned in training to be a Jedi?"
Ben: "Don't cut your own head off with your lightsaber."
Luke: "After that."
Ben: "Your eyes can deceive you. Be mindful of your feelings. Girls are fun but dangerous. Lando has extra cards up his sleeve."
Luke: "Well, the truth is in there somewhere…"

A necessary evil

Okay. I follow Star Wars and have read most of the novels in the SW Universe. The book was palatable because a) it continues to develop the story line and b) once again my favorite characters were brought to life by a *great* narrator. However, this series in general is beginning to become predictable. A couple more Jedi go nuts and Luke/Ben visit one more world and learn one more of Jacen's force abilities. *Yawn* The book could have been longer and could have developed the story line deeper. I also think that suddenly fabricating a new Sith race is.... kind of shallow. ( As was done by releasing "Lost Tribe of the Sith: Precipice" in May 2009.)

A nice continuation of the story!

I don’t really understand the criticisms of this story. Some complain that it feels like filler or some incomplete set-up for the next in the series. But really, what do you expect when you get into a 9-part series that was written as one continuing story? You're not going to get all the answers and conclusions in Part 2!!! Others have complained about the narration which really surprises me. Yes, it sounds a little funny when the adult male narrator does a “little girl voice.” But what do you expect? That’s part of listening to an audio book with one narrator! I say his performance is outstanding!

As for the story itself, this is a nice continuation from part one. The new alien world we are introduced to is very interesting and has a story line you can wrap your teeth around. The evolution of the father/son relationship between Luke and Ben is very well done and touching. I’m stoked to learn more about “Ship” and what its capabilities are. So far it's really spooky in all the right ways. I like how the force is emplained in a new light that makes you think it may be less simple than a "light side" and "dark side." At the same time, it does't trample on what we already know about the force as "canon."

2 books in and I’m loving this series! I’ve never read a Star Wars novel before and may have had some prejudices again people who have, but I think I’m becoming a convert!

Omen

Things grow darker. She is nearly loose.
On Coruscant Jedi Knight Jyclla Horn has gone violently insane like her brother, only to be arrested and frozen in carbonite. People begin to fear the Jedi at the capital. Tensions between them and Chief of State Dalla only get worse.
Luke and Ben’s trail leads them to the Yang Ti. As always throughout the series Luke and Ben’s interactions are wonderful.
Enter Vestara Kia. A Sith with a good? heart. Born and bread a Sith (however the Lost Tribe is far different than Bane’s or Krayt’s) she is a fascinating character. She is not evil, nor is she good. She’s also not a sociopath because she truly cares for others. Anyway....Ship makes contact with her and bring The Lost Tribe out into the galaxy. For first time since the Old Republic.
This book is great listen. It’s truly heartbreaking that FoJ is the last Legends series. However it’s one heck of send off for Legends fans. So I guess if you are dissatisfied with the new Star Wars try the Expanded Universe. It’s still my home and I don’t mind re reading them all.

One of the best SW Legends Series

This one is my favorite of the series because it explores the force on a sort of pseudo-religious level. Malevolent immortal entities with terrifying powers and malice, revelations about core concepts of the sw universe as a whole that are pretty fundamental (no spoilers)
And if that’s not enough, you really can’t do better than Marc Thompson for a narrator.

The story continues

The plot is thickening. It is a bit weird hearing Thompson's voice doing the female characters.

Great read

This is a great series with a couple different plots taking place at the same time. These plots keep the reader's attention at all times.
