Description

National best seller

A mysterious former Sith wanders the galaxy in this stunning Star Wars tale, an original novel inspired by the world of The Duel from the Star Wars Visions animated anthology.

The Jedi are the most loyal servants of the Empire. 

Two decades ago, Jedi clans clashed in service to feuding lords. Sickened by this endless cycle, a sect of Jedi rebelled, seeking to control their own destiny and claim power in service of no master. They called themselves Sith. 

The Sith rebellion failed, succumbing to infighting and betrayal, and the once rival lords unified to create an Empire...but even an Empire at peace is not free from violence. 

Far on the edge of the Outer Rim, one former Sith wanders, accompanied only by a faithful droid and the ghost of a less civilized age. He carries a lightsaber, but claims lineage to no Jedi clan, and pledges allegiance to no lord. Little is known about him, including his name, for he never speaks of his past, nor his regrets. His history is as guarded as the red blade of destruction he carries sheathed at his side.

As the galaxy's perpetual cycle of violence continues to interrupt his self-imposed exile, and he is forced to duel an enigmatic bandit claiming the title of Sith, it becomes clear that no amount of wandering will ever let him outpace the specters of his former life.

the riddler

was kinda hard to follow. extremely enigmatic. I think the bones of the story were interesting but again was just a little hard to keep track of what's going on

An Amazing stand alone story

This is now in my top 10 books. it's shows the moral grey area between Sith and Jedi. Aswell as having now one of my favorite star wars themes (Japanese) that fits so well in the star wars Universe. Last but not least the audio performance is so immerseive for lightsaber duels to Droid sound effect creates an amazing atmosphere and listening experience. I recommend this audio book to any star wars fan that would like to hear a unique star wars experience.

not a Star Wars Story.

struggled to Finish. impossible to follow. might be a decent samurai story but it's not what I came for and definitely has next to nothing to do with The Duel.

Very Disappointing

This book really intrigued me since it's based one the short "The Dual" from Star Wars: Visions. Who is this character, this... sith? that collects red kyber crystals from the sabers of the sith he's felled? Why is he killing the sith? After reading this book I still don't know. All the questions I had upon watching the animation are vaguely answered and yet not really or the explination didn't make sense.

There's debate whether this story or the stories from Visions are canon or not. Which I don't really care. But this book didn't even seem to try to fit in to the world of the star wars I expected, only doing so with the inclusion of light sabers. This is very much a samurai story, not really a star wars story.

There were many things in this book I didn't like. With the inclusion of undead, possessions, and demons it went downhill for me immediately.

This book permeated Japan and Asia too the point it was too much. Yes Star Wars is originally inspired by Japanese samurai etc., but that's all it was, inspired. This book takes place in old Edo Japan. Where everyone has Japanese or Asian names. Some just happen to have light sabers and can use the force... or actually black or white current? There's a Japanese Manga called Gintama that I feel does a better job with the samurai in a sci-fi setting. And that's a gag comic.

One of the biggest problems with this book is that one of the main characters goes by the them/they pronouns which was so confoundedly confusing that I quite nearly dropped reading the book entirely. Throughout the whole book I was lost at who was speaking or thinking because of the use these pronouns. I ended up imagining this character had two heads to justify the plural pronoun use just so I could get through the book. It was a shame because I kind of enjoyed this character. I feel if these types of pronouns are going to be used in a story the author should mention it in a forward or something just to give the readers a heads up and know what to expect.

The narrator was fine. And did a pretty good job and was pleasant to listen to.

Overall this was disappointing to me. Lots of internal monologs, confusing plot twists, "jedi" and and "sith" that aren't actually either of those. This story is just a samurai story involving the undead with light sabers. Not a Star Wars story.

Enchanting take on a galaxy far far away

I thought that this book was excellently executed from start to finish. Would love for more Visions novels in the future!

I think I enjoyed it

First of all, I really enjoyed the non-canon alternate universe created by this story. The Jedi/Sith dynamic feels more authentic and fleshed out than the canon one. I enjoyed the story, for the most part, but a lot of it happens in conversations so it was hard to remember what was happening or where the characters were sometimes. The performance was great save for those awkward chapter transitions that often killed the momentum or mood.

Confusing...

I like the book, the idea for the Visions novel was a great idea. Set in an alternate universe where the Jedi are protectorates of the Galaxy, and the sith are all but extinct. It got me in some parts where I had to rewind a minute or two just to understand what exactly had just happened. This happened about a couple times during the whole novel. It was good, the idea was flawlessly executed, but I think the writing could have used some more, explanation, in some parts.

Great Addition As an Alternative View

For those reading the rest of the reviews on this particular audiobook, it is a very good and very unique take on the Star Wars Universe. Several reviews bash the presence of a non-binary character in the book and view it as propoganda being shoved down the throat.
That is by no means the truth. Instead it is introduced fluidly and organically into the story and by no way alters it's flow or feels fake in any way. I love the progressive way that it is introduced and this character ended up being my favorite in the end.
What matters is that the book is very well read and written. it is an imaginative retelling of the Star Wars story and builds greatly upon the episode in Disney's Star Wars Visions. The soundboard is excellent as Star Wars books usually are. So try it out for yourself and see what I mean.

Did the author know how to write?

I’ve read a great deal of Star Wars books. This is the first I couldn’t finish. The authors concept of Sith and Jedi doesn’t make sense. Not to mention that it is was impossible to follow the story. Please save your money. Go buy something from Timothy Zahn instead.

Not a Normal SW Story, Different but Good

People who complain about this book being "different" don't realize that that is the point. It's a reimaging of the Star Wars universe via Japanese culture and it's an interesting one at that. The way Jedi and Sith work here is much different than any other Canon or legends story and that ads to the mystery. If you liked the Vision's episode, "The Duel", this retells that episode and continues "The Ronin's" journey. Some people might be put off by how different this is and the story can be confusing because of it but I enjoyed listening to this narrative, meeting all the new characters and the world building it had to offer. Apparently people have also complained about the non-binary character that's in this but they're a lot of fun and they have an interesting backstory. Good production value with music, sound effects, awesome narration and immersion. If you want something different from a Star Wars book, like Samurai stories and don't mind how different the lore is, I would recommend it.

A Decent Read

Overall the book is a decent read—albeit one that will neither bore you to death nor keep you on the edge of your seat. For the most part, my only complaints are, first, that I felt there was a slight lack of character development and, second, that not enough context was given in the story for me to fully understand the plot’s positioning in the Star Wars universe and it’s history.
