The fourth novel of Star Wars – The Old Republic Audiobooks, Annihilation Audiobook continues the adventures of Theron Shan as well as a number of other characters from the game.

The Sith Empire is in flux. The Emperor is missing, presumed dead, and an ambitious Sith lord’s attempt to seize the throne has ended fatally. Still, Darth Karrid, commander of the fearsome Imperial battle cruiser Ascendant Spear, continues her relentless efforts to achieve total Sith domination of the galaxy.
But Karrid’s ruthless determination is more than matched in the steely resolve of Theron Shan, whose unfinished business with the Empire could change the course of the war for good. Though the son of a Jedi master, Theron does not wield the Force – but like his renowned mother, the spirit of rebellion is in his blood. As a top covert agent for the Republic, he struck a crucial blow against the Empire by exposing and destroying a Sith superweapon arsenal – which makes him the ideal operative for a daring and dangerous mission to end Ascendant Spear’s reign of terror.
Joined by hot-headed smuggler Teff’ith, with whom he has an inexplicable bond, and wise Jedi warrior Gnost-Dural, Darth Karrid’s former master, Theron must match wits and weapons with a battle-tested crew of the most cold-blooded dark-side disciples. But time is brutally short. And if they don’t seize their one chance to succeed, they will surely have countless opportunities to die.

Annihilation Audiobook free is set it the Old Republic era which is full of Jedi and Sith so you may think that the story would feature them heavily. No such luck. Of the ten characters in the dramatis personae, only four of them are Jedi or Sith and only two of the four play major roles.
It’s an entertaining audiobook; there are moments of genuine humour and warmth amidst the many explosions and battles. The characters are more developed in prose than their comic book origins, and Karpyshyn has some well placed quips and gags that lend sparkle to even the heaviest of expositional scenes.
I really liked this audiobook. I haven’t been following the Old Republic Era in the audiobooks and I have not gotten into the MMO so I didn’t really expect much. The more I listen through the more I enjoyed it and the book really delivered with a solid ending.
