NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The Sith Empire is in flux. The Emperor is missing, presumed dead, and an ambitious Sith lord’s attempt to seize the throne has ended fatally. Still, Darth Karrid, commander of the fearsome Imperial battle cruiser Ascendant Spear, continues her relentless efforts to achieve total Sith domination of the galaxy.

But Karrid’s ruthless determination is more than matched in the steely resolve of Theron Shan, whose unfinished business with the Empire could change the course of the war for good. Though the son of a Jedi master, Theron does not wield the Force—but like his renowned mother, the spirit of rebellion is in his blood. As a top covert agent for the Republic, he struck a crucial blow against the Empire by exposing and destroying a Sith superweapon arsenal—which makes him the ideal operative for a daring and dangerous mission to end Ascendant Spear’s reign of terror.

Joined by hot-headed smuggler Teff’ith, with whom he has an inexplicable bond, and wise Jedi warrior Gnost-Dural, Darth Karrid’s former master, Theron must match wits and weapons with a battle-tested crew of the most cold-blooded dark side disciples. But time is brutally short. And if they don’t seize their one chance to succeed, they will surely have countless opportunities to die.

Praise for Annihilation
 
“An espionage story interwoven with personal conflicts . . . space battles, lightsaber fights, and gripping spy missions . . . Annihilation may be Karpyshyn’s strongest novel yet.”—Roqoo Depot
 
“Pure Star Wars action-adventure entertainment as only Drew Karpyshyn can write it.”—The Founding Fields

it was fine. bit disposable. I don't think any of the characters really grow or changed. it unfolds in the way you'd expect. also the author falls back on his game-mechanic mind set at time, "the character is in this predicament, well then this approach will reduce damage and buy time until the enemy presents a weak spot". still enjoyable but I'm not going to rush to revisit this one. It did make Gnost Dural even cooler though.

This is one of so many great books that Drew Karpyshyn has written. And the narration was nothing less than amazing from Marc Thompson. This is a story to be read by any star wars fan, old or new. It has the feel of a classic battle with the history of a love story. Simply put it was an amazing listen.

This is amazing. It's a great backstory and so much fun to listen to. I like the sound effects as they add to the story. Should be a movie.
