    The dying Empire's most cunning and ruthless warlord - Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the remnants of the Imperial fleet and launched a massive campaign aimed at the New Republic's destruction. With the aid of unimaginable weapons long hidden away on a backwater planet, Thrawn plans to turn the tide of battle, overwhelm the New Republic, and impose his iron rule. Meanwhile, Han and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside the highest Republican Council.

    What did you love best about Star Wars: Dark Force Rising?

    First off - I have found it very difficult to listen to other audio books after hearing the performance by Marc. He is about as good as it gets. You truly find yourself 'hearing and seeing' the characters. His inflections are damn near perfect. Truly amazed. Add a powerful story (the whole trilogy!) to his skill - and you are in for a great ride!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Solid story!


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    All of them! Lando and Han - were spot on! All characters were unique!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There's a bounty on Han's head - and if he can't cough up the credits, he'll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king's ransom. Or maybe a gangster's fortune?

    Would you listen to Scoundrels: Star Wars again? Why?

    Maybe - was a pretty solid story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bink - quite spunky!


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Excellent job by Marc. Voices were spot on - and felt like you were listening to the audio of the actual actors.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened while in the car and at the gym - as often as I could - it did keep me coming back.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall - a solid story. Felt a lot like Ocean's 11 with Han playing Danny Ocean - and so forth. Parts were predictable - and parts were not - all in all - solid!
