But even more critical, and far more uncertain, is the future of the Jedi. Times are desperate for the Rebel Alliance. Harassment by the Empire and a shortage of vital supplies are hindering completion of a new secret base on the ice planet Hoth.


But when treachery forces the rebel ship to flee into territory controlled by pirates, Leia makes a shocking discovery: The fierce marauders come from Leia's homeworld of Alderaan, recently destroyed by the Death Star. On the heels of the stunning events chronicled in Star Wars: A New Hope, the newly minted heroes of the Rebellion - fledgling Jedi Luke Skywalker, smuggler turned reluctant freedom-fighter Han Solo, and Princess Leia Organa, a bold leader with a world to avenge - must face the harsh realities of the cataclysmic conflict into which they have so bravely plunged.

From this point forward, legends will grow, treachery will abound, and lives will be irrevocably altered, in the long, hard fight to counter the fist of tyranny and restore hope to a galaxy too long in darkness. The destruction of the Death Star by the Rebel Alliance was a decisive blow against the Empire, but Palpatine and his monstrous enforcer, Darth Vader, are no less of a threat.

The brutal extermination of Alderaan not only demonstrated the magnitude of their murderous power, but served as a chilling testament to their resolve to crush the Rebel uprising. Standing against them, Skywalker, Solo, and the Princess remain uncertain opponents.

Luke is gifted and brave, but unschooled in the power he possesses. The three have been sent to mediate a dispute between Rebel Alliance factions in Shelsha Sector - agitating matters by forcing Han to deal not only with pirates, but with his more dreaded enemy, politics. Each of these fateful actions, whether sanctioned, secret, or scandalous, will expose brutality and corruption, spur upheavals destined to shake the Empire to its core, and shape momentous events yet to come. Was great hearing a story from the storm troopers side.

Paperback Editions

Recommend to any fan out there. Oversaw a standard Star Wars experience, not much depth to the characters with little variation on female voices and with a Sykwalker who perhaps would of been more at home in a school yard with the writer making him a bit to whiney. Really good. It's rare to get a story from the other side of the star wars universe.

Just saying. Marc Thompson is what buying these adaptations are about in some cases. This is that case. The book makes a much better audiobook than print novel.

Allegiance: Star Wars Legends (Audiobook) by Timothy Zahn |

It's kinda dry. It doesn't quite pull you in like its sequel, Choices of One does. Let's hope we see that one recorded soon. Still, they could have picked way worse books to do. Fair story. Excellent execution. Would you consider the audio edition of Allegiance: Star Wars to be better than the print version? I have both read and listened to Allegiance and I must admit that Marc Thompson made the journey extremely satisfying. I don't think it is fair to compare print vs. Marc Thompson was able to capture the voice and style of well known movie actors I love the Timothy Zahn books.

They add some much depth and personality to the Empire's High Command political structure. Mara Jade and Vader are so cool in this book.

A large portion of this book is also told from the perspective of 5 Stormtroopers. I like that the Stormtroopers are humanized in this story. Never Miss A Zahn Book. Like the different view of these storm troopers. What did you love best about Allegiance: Star Wars?

Box Office

Zahn: Jade's character profile is written perfectly. The story is like an episode of NCIS. Thompson: His performance of the men of the "Hand of Judgement". Especially his "Quiller" voice. What other book might you compare Allegiance: Star Wars to and why? None, but it's classic Zahn. Mara Jade begins to discover that the side she serves may not be on hers.

As stated above, the voices.

He brings those characters out of that book as if it were a pop-up. His overall mastery of the tone and approach to this story makes the narration sound darn near flawless. Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you? Han and Leia's moment alone near the end of the story. Any additional comments? One tiny thing bothered me about the dialog Mr. Keep in mind that the book is set in a time between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back so Leia, not yet experiencing the defeat at Hoth and the pursuit of Darth Vader, hasn't begun to release her true feelings for Han on a personal level.

She should still have the same vintage professional and studious approach towards Han that she had in dealing with Solo in A New Hope and not be addressing him as "Han" THAT many times in the novel. However, the scene where Leia gets jealous as Han speaks to a female rebel pilot at the beginning of the novel perfectly shows the vintage suppression of feelings and indifference in Han's attempts to frustrate her. Who was your favorite character and why? He and the "Hand of Judgment" was my favorite part of the story. If not him then Mara Jade, her arrogance is what pushes her to second because she hasn't earned her arrogance like, for instance, Vader Man if he were in the book as a core character he would be first cause Darth Vader!

It's a tie between two scenes. Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? Timothy Zahn always hits home runs with his Star Wars novels and he did it again. The only issue with this book is It's to short. I wanted more, i did read 'Choices of One' before i listened to this but i still wanted more. I also wanted more Vader but i completely understand him being a small cameo-esk character. I believe this is Marc's first attempt at Vader but you couldn't tell as it's flawless. Marc is second only to Johnathan Davis when it comes to voice actors of Vader, he surpasses him in every other Voice especially Luke's.

Great book, Great narrator, Great story, i'm amazed by this book. If you could sum up Allegiance: Star Wars in three words, what would they be? Bold, New, Characters. Would you be willing to try another book from Timothy Zahn? Why or why not? Tim Zahn is a great writer!


Bar Scene is by far the best scene! If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be? I loved it I have become comfortable with Mara Jade and the five new Stormtroopers that made this book so enjoyable I love the interaction and the way things are working together I hope to see more in this series between these two separate contingence the only Jade has been around for a while but the new Stormtrooper 18 which is the only way I can really describe them as a dynamic to the storyline that I find absolutely exhilarating I can't wait to read more about them I hope that they continue I'm enjoying it immensely.

Marc Thompson as always is stellar in his narration, and the middle third in particular made the book hard to put down. Its no spoiler to say Mara Jade makes an appearance in this book as a third of it is from her perspective, but the "missed other plot characters by inches" trope felt a little over done in this book, particularly to anyone who has read further in to the extended universe.

The story was engaging, there was more backstory filled into the original crew, and the Empire's depth was expanded. Allegiance: Star Wars Legends. Written By: Timothy Zahn. Read By: Marc Thompson.
