We love Star Wars audiobooks here at DFAT but what we love even more are audiodramas! Dooku; Jedi Lost assembles a full cast to act out the latest story that tells us the backstory behind the notorious Count Dooku. I was a big fan of Dark Disciple, read my review here, and I can’t wait to HEAR what comes next in the ever growing entity known as Star Wars Canon. Dooku: Jedi Lost is now available for pre-order (releases 4/30/19) and you can order it from a numerous number of sites off of the Penguin Random House website. Check out a behind the scenes look at the production!
Here’s the official rundown below and be sure to head on over to the official Star Wars website for an audio excerpt!
Delve into the history of the sinister Count Dooku in this audio original set in a galaxy far, far away….
Darth Tyranus. Count of Serenno. Leader of the Separatists. A red saber, unsheathed in the dark. But who was he, before he became the right hand of the Sith? As Dooku courts a new apprentice, the hidden truth of the Sith Lord’s past begins to come to light.
Dooku’s life began as one of privilege—born within the stony walls of his family’s estate, orbited by the Funeral Moon where the bones of his ancestors lie interred. But soon his Jedi abilities are recognized and he is taken from his home to be trained in the ways of the Force by the legendary Master Yoda.
As he hones his power, Dooku rises through the ranks, befriending fellow Jedi Sifo-Dyas and taking a padawan of his own, the promising Qui-Gon Jinn—and tries to forget the life that he once led. But he finds himself drawn by a strange fascination with the Jedi Master Lene Kostana, and the mission she undertakes for the Order: finding and studying ancient relics of the Sith, in preparation for the eventual return of the deadliest enemies the Jedi have ever faced.
Caught between the world of the Jedi, the ancient responsibilities of his lost home, and the alluring power of the relics, Dooku struggles to stay in the light—even as the darkness begins to fall.
