An ensemble cast narrates a story involving one of the Star Wars saga's more sinister figures: Count Dooku. Told through two storylines, the audio drama examines Dooku's life through flashbacks and through the eyes of his apprentice, Asajj Ventress. While the story seems rushed and bare-bones, the talented narrators and impressive production quality result in an engaging listen. Orlagh Cassidy perfectly captures Asajj Ventress, and Marc Thompson nails the iconic Master Yoda. Euan Morton evokes Christopher Lee’s Dooku without attempting to emulate Lee’s iconic voice. Every scene is enhanced by subtle scoring and sound effects, giving the experience a movie-like quality. The rushed nature of the story benefits Star Wars fans but less so newcomers.
