It's been a great Re-read of the trilogy that relaunched Star Wars literature. There are bits and pieces of the themes of these books in the force awakens.
The book is a fun read into the old expanded universe
I really enjoyed the entire series. I read them a ong time ago as a teen but had forgotten so much. listening while driving, working, or just putting around kept my mind entertained and helps the time pass. In common Star Wars fashion the end resolves quickly and many loose ends were tied up nicely. Now that these books are considered Star Wars legend and not canon they are a little off the normal story line of episode 7 but very entertaining non the less.
Yeas because the audio edition really sounds like Star Wars
Looking for the Delta source.
No. Do not get me wrong though. This was a good audio book. Just no as good as the other two books in the Thrawn trilogy.
The ending was too much like Return of the Jedi.
The entire series is amazing, and the narration and sound effects are incredible. I can't believe Thompson played all those characters, they all sounded like totally different people. His voice for Thrawn is top notch!
Heir to the empire was a masterpiece and very strong start to the Thrawn trilogy. This is a good conclusion to that trilogy, but not great. The weakest of the 3 novels. But still highly recommended. Mostly because this journey starts with heir to the empire a TRUE STAR WARS MASTERPIECE!
Marc Thompson does quite well with the considerable number of characters he's required to perform. The theatric sound effects and music are aptly used as well.
Absolutely. If you've started the Thrawn series, the conclusion does not disappoint. I gave the story only 3 stars, because I couldnt help but think that this story draws too significantly off canon stories instead of carving its own place in lore.
C'baoth. Really makes the character come to life in this installment, where he takes on a more important role than he did previously in the series.
