Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Delve into the history of the sinister Count Dooku in this audio original set in a galaxy far, far away....

Darth Tyranus. Count of Serenno. Leader of the Separatists. A red saber, unsheathed in the dark. But who was he, before he became the right hand of the Sith? As Dooku courts a new apprentice, the hidden truth of the Sith Lord’s past begins to come to light.

Dooku’s life began as one of privilege—born within the stony walls of his family’s estate, orbited by the Funeral Moon where the bones of his ancestors lie interred. But soon his Jedi abilities are recognised and he is taken from his home to be trained in the ways of the Force by the legendary Master Yoda.

As he hones his power, Dooku rises through the ranks, befriending fellow Jedi Sifo-Dyas and taking a padawan of his own, the promising Qui-Gon Jinn—and tries to forget the life that he once led. But he finds himself drawn by a strange fascination with the Jedi Master Lene Kostana and the mission she undertakes for the Order: finding and studying ancient relics of the Sith, in preparation for the eventual return of the deadliest enemies the Jedi have ever faced.

Caught between the world of the Jedi, the ancient responsibilities of his lost home and the alluring power of the relics, Dooku struggles to stay in the light—even as the darkness begins to fall.

Enjoyable story but confusing at times

For the past 2 years I've listened to all of my Star Wars books, I like the extra elements it brings. With a full cast this book is unique amongst them all, and I was interested in that it is audio only.

The voice actors are all excellent, and for the most part the story is enjoyable.

My only gripe is the 'audio only' nature of the story. At times you have different characters talking to each other, but without the additional descriptions that a normal book provides ("Qui Gon said"; "Dooku answered" etc) you sometimes can get lost on who is saying what. There was a moment where a lot of grunting type noises were happening - no idea what was happening there either! A normal book would have an explanation, a narration to enable you to visualise the moment. In this you don't know if a scream is from getting shot, stubbing a toe or treading on some Lego.

Still worth a listen in my opinion, but I would like to hear/read an 'unabridged' version which adds the additional narration required if you were to read it.

The Best Star Wars Audible

Wow. What an amazingly original audio drama. Describing Count Dooku's upbringing in the jedi order as a compassionate but flawed jedi, to his eventual role as a cunning diplomat and fearsome Sith. With an incredible voice cast, who have all had experience in Star Wars audiobooks, to an incredible and layered storyline, depicting not only Dooku's origin, but notable character favourites. It does its job well in building upon characters mentioned previously in star wars movies, more so Attack of the Clones, and books, notably Darth Plagueis. It's a must have for any Star Wars fan. Highly HIGHLY recommended.

The Jedi were wrong

No stone left unturned when it comes to Dooku's upbringing and the ripple effects the Jedi Council has caused over the years. Sick!

Eye opening

If you want an insight into the characters on the cover this is perfect, gives a ton of depth to dooku and closes the gap between assaj as an assassin and as a bounty hunter. Worth it!

Star wars from a new view

I have just finished this book an it was amazing. If you love Star Wars you will really love this book. I like how it makes you look a things from a different point of view than the movies gives you. It also gives you more background to some of the characters from the movies that you might not have know that much about. It also introduces new characters and places unseen in the movies.

The voice acting is also really good and it is easy to hear which character is speaking because the voice actors sounds like the characters from the movies.

Big thumbs up from me

Excellent performance.

Another strong entry into Disney's new Star Wars canon. This audio play is as strong as the best episodes of The Clone Wars and gives insight into the fall of Count Dooku and his relationship with Asajj Ventress.

It also covers briefly Dooku's relationship with fellow Jedi Sifo Dyas, though still doesn't fully account for his joining the Sith or the creation of the Clone Army. Hopefully they will make a sequel book or companion piece to cover those elements in deeper detail, but as it is this is one of my favourite adventures.

A very cool look into the life of Count Dooku

Dooku Jedi lost is a great story about how the failings of the Jedi caused another student to be lost. it shows the contradictions of Jedi beliefs and ideals to real world actions and how Dooku once could've been a Jedi of the likes of obi-wan and Yoda.

The voice acting for some characters is incredibly accurate (Qui-Gon, Yoda, Ventress, Alvaross). The voice actor for older Dooku during the clone wars wasn't able to achieve the powerful baritone of Christopher Lee or Corey Burton but still portrayed the elegance and grace of the Dooku we know and love

nice insight

I would have preferred this being an ordinary, longer audiobook. being an audio drama makes it feel a little TOO overdramatic in places.

it ends a bit earlier than I'd like, it gives good insight into dookus life but stops prematurely I think.

also I don't think Euan Morton was the best choice for voicing dooku, he's good but he makes a better tarkin or mua'dib. I kinda felt like Paul Atreides was in this book, not dooku.

definitely worth a credit though!

Something new

Format-wise I think that this is very promising. a lot could be done, telling stories like that.
Story-wise, I was unsettled at first. I've always wanted to know more about Dooku but the way the story was presented made me wonder if it was the best way to do so. ultimately I went with it and enjoyed it thoroughly. Congratulations to the writer, the cast, and all the other people who worked on this.

Star wars at its best!

This was absolutely brilliant. I loved how the story was able to incorporate so many characters and suck you into the star wars galaxy. It was thrilling and I loved it.
