Retired Military Service Member who enjoys a good book with a fascinating story which enables us to travel to distant lands and universes.
What a great follow on story to Return of Jedi. The plot of the entire story develops gracefully and keeps you at the edge of your seat the entire time.
Interesting first hand account and view to the interactions of Mara Jade and Luke; which will help you understand how these two very different and dynamic people within the Star Wars universe come together and ultimately sealed their fates together.
You also see the birth of the Solo children and how they become part of the central group for much of the Star Wars expanded universe.
A must listen if you are a true Star Wars fan.
having read the books years ago I was so excited to do the audio version of the 20th anniversary edition. The stories in this Trilogy are just as good if not better on audio. I cannot recommend this enough for any Star Wars fan and especially those who have yet to explore the expanded universe. You don't have to have your Star Wars friends end up in door anymore. Mark Thompson is by far the best narrator and thankfully does many of the Star Wars novels that have since come out. I hope he sticks with the series from here out. 5 stars!
The Star Wars series written by Timothy Zahn is very entertaining. I recommend you listen to them all, starting with the Thrawn trilogy (5 years after the original series ended), then the Hand of Thrawn Book I and II (10 years after the trilogy). The narrator, Marc Thompson did a superb job of creating distinct voices for each of the major characters and maintaining continuity through all 5 books. I could easily tell one character from the other immediately. The sound affects added to the story without distracting or overpowering. The new characters were imaginative creatures and the battles were cunningly written. Very enjoyable listening to all these books! SusyQ
I just couldn't stop listening. I am completely captivated by Mr. Thompson's narration an amazing performance. If you like Star Wars, you have to listen to this!!!!!!!
conclusion to the Thrawn trilogy was all i expected and more, the story, the narration and all in all... effects, music and everything
Not sure if I have a favorite in this trilogy, but this is a definite contender. The intensity is high from the start of this one and it only escalates as all of the main characters play a critical role in a very busy conclusion spread across the galaxy. I was slightly disappointed in the ending, but since it was telegraphed way in advance, I was ok with it. At any rate, it's a great story that really captures the sense of adventure present in the films and expands on that, gracefully weaving in an awesome arc for each of the characters you love. Mara Jade is a new favorite, as is Talon Karrde (aka Ricardo Montalbon).
great trilogy keeps you interested and entertained the voice and sound effects great
you think there were more voice actors then just the narrator I love when he changes his voice with each role
