The war that erupted in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones is nearing its boiling point. The dauntless Separatist forces continue their assault on the teetering Republic as the diabolical triumvirate of Count Dooku, General Grievous, and their Master, Darth Sidious, fine-tune their strategy for conquest. In Episode III Revenge of the Sith the fates of key players on both sides of the conflict will be sealed. But first, crucial events that pave the way to that time of reckoning unfold in a labyrinth of evil.
Capturing Trade Federation Viceroy and Separatist Councilmember Nute Gunray is the mission that brings Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, with a squad of clones in tow, to Neimoidia. Their daring efforts yield an unexpected prize: a unique holotransceiver that bears intelligence capable of leading the Republic forces to their ultimate quarry, the ever-elusive Darth Sidious.
Swiftly taking up the chase, Anakin and Obi-Wan follow clues from the droid factories of Charros IV to the far-flung worlds of the Outer Rim...every step bringing them closer to pinpointing the location of the Sith Lord, whom they suspect has been manipulating every aspect of the Separatist rebellion.
Then the trail takes a shocking turn. For Sidious and his minions have set in motion a ruthlessly orchestrated campaign to divide and overwhelm the Jedi forces and bring the Republic to its knees.
Labyrinth Of Evil the novel is fantastic. Labyrinth of Evil the audiobook leaves too many holes to be fantastic. All of the main characters face omissions. Their thoughts are vital to this storyline. Yoda, Windu's and Palpatine's scene are compressed. Yoda's thoughts on the currents of the force are compressed. Yoda's realization that his arrogance has imbued to the Jedi Order a dispiritedness that the dark side of the force is overtaking the Jedi order is gone. C-3P0's inadvertant meeting with the droid soothsayer seemed valuable to retain. I think that Labyrinth of Evil and Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader should have been unabridged audiobooks because of their value to the pre-quel story line. The narrator does an admirable job with all those voices.

The storytelling is great, it gives depth to the characters and adds a lot of details to the political environment. It is exciting, there's never a boring moment. Jonathan Davies is fantastic as always! I really enjoyed it! This Dark Lord trilogy is a must for Star Wars fans!

This abridged version "reads" easier than the print version. Luceno is a great Star Wars author, but it seems that he gets bogged down in too much setting depth in the book. This audio book has a much better flow. It balances event pacing with character development.

Loved the story. It was great to get some background. Yet again a great book was sullied
labyrinth of evil is one of the greatest books I've ever seen in my life so far I love it more than anything else except for the revenge of the Sith book in my top books it is the second greatest one I've seen in my entire life five stars I love this book a lot.
To short. The details cut out had the potential to make or break it and it totally ruined the key parts of the story.
Shows connections between Lord Cedeous, Count Doku and General Grevous. Period between episode II and III with what Anikan and Obiwan have been up too.
As always, a stellar story and performance that is sadly not canon (Thanks Disney...gawd!).
I loved it!
i likes the story but i didnt like the voices he gave. didnt seem to fit
