Another thing that pulls you in and is a fantastic bonus over the books is the sound effects. Just hearing the hum on a lightsaber just adds the extra oomf to the battles.
Its a must have for any Star wars fan or just anyone into sifi.
The great story writer Drew Karpyshyn really had made this series of books a great one which will make you just want to keep listening and hope it doesn't stop.

Could make a good movie, but 2, even 3 hours wouldn't be enough. Also what is narrated, battles and use of force (dark and light) is better told in writing or heard than on the screen. Great book to start a series based on "The law of Two". I look forward to the next book.

Characters are not easy to craft and I'm hard to impress after being exposed to San Dan Glokta in The First Law series.There are a great many disappointing books in the world but this isn't one of them.
I won't go into spoilers... this book was an experiment as I sought to be entertained by writers that I didn't know in a franchise that had over 60 books vying for my attention. I will say that Dynasty of Evil is imaginative, expansive and beautifully diverse. There are several well detailed characters and I actually understood their motives (which is a very common gripe of mine....) and development arcs. These people did things I understood. They failed to do things that were daft or sincerely misguided. If mistakes were made... they were recognisably plausible. I liked that. It was plausible which (if I'm honest) is very rare when I look for a good story.
Don't you just hate it when seemingly intelligent, likeable characters do ridiculous things to ignite a plot?
