Summary

As ruthless apprentice to Darth Vader, Starkiller was mercilessly schooled in the ways of the dark side, commanded to exterminate the last of the purged Jedi Order, and groomed for the ultimate Sith power play: assassination of the Emperor. He served without question, killed without remorse, and lost his heart without warning to beautiful Imperial fighter pilot Juno Eclipse, never suspecting that he was just a tool in the schemes of his masters - until it was too late to escape their lethal betrayal.

Juno mourned Starkiller as dead...but now he is back, purged of all memories and programmed to kill. And as fate brings Juno and Starkiller closer to reuniting, with Darth Vader determined not to lose his assassin a second time, they will both have to make a stand. The prize is freedom. The punishment for failing will be eternal enslavement to the dark side of the Force...

quite good but dragged a little

Interesting story. Narrative dragged a little at times. Gives a bit more back story to the rebel alliance

Well performed but not overly in depth story and less appealing as its no longer canon

Great Book!!!

I am a huge fan of the Force Unleashed storyline. I love the story of Starkiller and his relationship with the different characters in the two book / games. It is very easy to get attached to the characters and you can't stop reading because you want to find out what happens in the end. I highly recommend this book to anyone. Of course you will need to read the first book first which is also great. It sucks tho that there isn't an unabridged version of the first one there is only abridged. Last thoughts... I can't wait till the game comes out and I hope to see more books revolved around these characters. Buy the book or download this now!!

A Great Follow Up

Thi is a great book and an engaging story. Even has a great cameo! The only problem is that there seem to be quick silent pauses that interrupt the flow. Worth your listen. Get Book one or you will be so lostQ

An Awesome Side of the Story You've Never Seen

With amazing descriptive detail, we not only hear Starkiller's story, but also Juno's. Absolutely amazing.

A great addition to the Star Wars Universe!

I just love the full cast of actors and the sound effects that make the story come to life and immerse you in the Star Wars Universe. As a whole it's awesome!
I'd recommend to all who enjoy a good story full cast dramatization and sound effects, like scifi lovers and especially of course Star Wars fans new and old alike.
This was a blast to listen to and felt like I was in a movie not just watching or in this case just listening to one persons account/view or telling a story that they heard.
This is an example of how all Audio books should be made! I feel like it's a whole experience when it's done in the way this book was done here so keep up the great awesome work Audible!!! Make more like this and PLEASE GIVE ME MORE! Four thumbs up!!!

A weak story

Jonathan Davis shines while narrating, but not much can be done about the weak story... while the original Force Unleashed was a good story full of plot twists, revenge, betrayal and adventure, this sequel reads as just traveling from point A to point B, with nothing more than select appearances from established characters... plus, from the ending of the novel it's implied that a last sequel (hopefully) is due. I hope that they polish that last one a bit more...

"Happy?" Ending is a little...forced.

Not sure how the ending could be resolved with the rest of the StarWars cannon. If the story was meant to work with the original Expanded Universe (i.e. not Disney's vision/version of StarWars) I can't see how it would work without tragedy or hand-waving.

Good but not great.

I do the love the force unleashed story and I love how the author explores a deeper storyline than in the game, but it does seemed to drag on and have quite a bit of filler fluff at the end.

Decent

An ok book due to a deeper look into Juno's side of thing's. Loads of fan service all throughout with many special guest appearances. Like the game, many major questions are left unanswered. The seemingly uncanonical ending blew my mind! Maybe there js supposed to be a 3rd installment to elaborate on what happens next?
