A strangely enough forgotten story from an equally as forgotten trilogy. The final story of which is only ever brought up it seems when discussing Vienna with it being her debut.
Personally, I rather liked it. Not as strong as The Burning Prince but it’s Doctor Who does Star Wars and it does it rather decently I’d say. Tenebris makes for an imposing although perhaps not subtle villain as well.
I remember when I first heard this story five years ago I had been listening to BF for about a year and had been a member of the old forum for that same amount of time and I was surprised that no one had mentioned it. I really enjoyed it, as I did the entire trilogy. It was a new direction for Five at BF, or so it seemed to me at the time. I listened to it on a plane to Florida to take a course for my new job, which I just left last week. It was also within the first month this forum was created and right after I discovered that I was a mod. (Yes, I remember being told by PM by another member and being surprised and nervous.) So I'm glad you brought it up grinch because it really fits this whole Anniversary vibe that I've had lately.
I only remember the glorious scene of Sixie punching the annoying person in the face and knocking him out. And he is not apologetic at all "You just have one of these faces people want to punch". Loved that. If the audio is worth getting just for that, is anybodies choice, however.
Yeah, I still have no idea why this release (and the entire trilogy) seems to have been forgotten. I actually think this one is a good jumping on point for the whole Drashani trilogy. Certainly more of a breather compared to the bleakness and utter despair of the previous release.
