BioWare and LucasArts—creators of the hugely popular Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video game—have combined their storytelling talents and cutting-edge technology for an innovative new massively multiplayer online role-playing game that allows players to create their own personal Star Wars adventure 3,500 years before the rise of Darth Vader. Now, number-one New York Times best-selling author Sean Williams brings the world of the game to life in his latest novel, Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance.
Tassaa Bareesh, a matriarch in the Hutt crime cartel, is holding an auction that’s drawing attention from across the galaxy. Representatives of both the Republic and the Sith Empire are present, along with a Jedi Padawan sent to investigate, a disenfranchised trooper drummed out of the Republic’s elite Blackstar Squad, and a mysterious Mandalorian with a private agenda. But the Republic’s envoy is not what he seems, the Empire’s delegate is a ruthless Sith apprentice, the Jedi Padawan is determined to do the right thing and terrified that he can’t, the trooper hopes to redeem her reputation, and the Mandalorian is somehow managing to keep one step ahead of everyone.
None of these guests—invited or uninvited—have any intention of participating in the auction. Instead they plan to steal the prize, which is locked inside an impregnable vault: two burned chunks of an exploded star cruiser, one of which may hold the key to the wealth of an entire world.
But the truth about the treasure is dangerous and deadly. And in the end, Sith and Jedi, Republic and Empire, must do something they’ve never done before, something that all the agents of good and evil could never make them do: join together to stop a powerful threat that could destroy the galaxy.



"This novel is tied in to the Star Wars universe at a stage in its history that is still being explored in print fiction, and it is also the prequel to what promises to be the largest, most ambitious electronic role-playing game yet to be spun off of that universe. With so much riding on its shoulders, the book demands an unusual gift for cracking good space opera, and that Williams possesses in full measure." ( Booklist)

Echte Überraschung

Eines der besten Hörbücher, die ich in der letzen Zeit gehört habe! Spannend, viel Action, gute Charaktere, gut gelesen...
Wo es in den letzten Jahren viele mittelmäßige Star Wars Bücher gab, sticht dieses wirklich heraus, würde mich mal interessieren, ob die Reihe fortgesetzt wird...

Decent book, too loud sound effects

This audiobook could get four to five stars due to an fascinatingly unusual story, great characters and solid storytelling, if I had not have problems understanding the speaker. The reasons for just three stars are the following:
- Too weird vioces. A few characters, most of them aliens, have voices so strange that I (as a non-native english speaker) had serious problems understanding.
- Changes of volume. Some voices are so loud and high that it hurt in my ears. Others are so silent that I barely heard them and had to turn up the volume.
- Most importantly, the sound effects are too many and especially too loud and badly timed. I see that sound effects can help to follow what's happening when there's a word or two that you don't understand, especially for non-native speakers like me. But often times in this audiobook a blaster fire or an explosion overlaid the speakers voice so I did not understand him even after several tries.

Besides these things I really liked the speakers performance. He had (besides those mentioned above) very understandable and still recognizeable voices for most characters and a convienient natural voice as well.

Despite the sound effect-inflation it was worth the time and I think I chaught up with the main story, just as most of the side-strings ;)
