Publisher's Summary

On the planet Tython, the ancient Je'daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force - and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je'daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy.
Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je'daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency. The leader of a fanatical cult, obsessed with traveling beyond the reaches of known space, is bent on opening a cosmic gateway using dreaded dark matter as the key - risking a cataclysmic reaction that will consume the entire star system. But more shocking to Lanoree than even the prospect of total galactic annihilation, is the decision of her Je'daii Masters to task her with the mission of preventing it. Until a staggering revelation makes clear why she was chosen: The brilliant, dangerous madman she must track down and stop at any cost is the brother whose death she has long grieved - and whose life she must now fear.

a very clever story

Where does Into the Void: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Book 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

mid to high


Who was your favorite character and why?

i can't say that i have a favourite character, but they are significantly different to the shall we say modern day Jedi.


What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

January is a new reader for the Star Wars extended universe. it's fitting that she reads a book set in a time when there are none of the usual characters you would expect to see in a star wars story. I would have to compare this story with another story where January reads with well known characters in it.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes but i found it quite hard going at first so i had to spread it over multiple sittings.


Any additional comments?

this story is definitely worth a read. especially when you look at the attitudes to the light and dark sides of the force from then and make coparisons to the republic and beyond era's. most interesting indeed.

As usual - Outstanding!

What did you like most about Into the Void: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Book 2?

I was a bit dubious downloading this as it was book 2 - but as with most of these books you dont miss out too much! I am looking forward to Book 1 being released here but this doesnt detract from this outstanding story! set before pretty much any of the star wars books out there it is a more - human- version of star wars. Outstanding story read perfectly by the author with the usual mix of star wars sound effects and musical scores - I highly recommend this!


What was one of the most memorable moments of Into the Void: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Book 2?

Listening to the differences in the early jedi philosophies - very different and interesting.


Have you listened to any of January LaVoy’s other performances? How does this one compare?

First time I have listened to this reader but she was very good!


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes if I could have I would have (much like all the star wars ones)


Any additional comments?

I would like book 1 to be released here but love book 2 as well!
