    Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights. But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords - the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic....

    Story
    Would you listen to Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition) again? Why?

    Definitely! To me this story is just like the original trilogy movies, and up there with the NPR radio dramas. Having a soundtrack with music and effects, and Marc Thompson's voice acting makes this more of a production than a book being read to me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Having my favorite characters from the Star Wars universe on more adventures. I also enjoyed having new likeable characters introduced into the SW universe (Jade, Karrde, and Winter).


    What does Marc Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Being able to close my eyes and be pulled into the story. Having different character voices and expressive tones, I feel like I'm listening to actual conversations.


    Any additional comments?

    I was ecstatic when I learned Random House Audio decided to create this audiobook. I'm also happy to know that it was everyone's support of this audiobook that convinced them to enlist Marc to record the other too books in this trilogy.

    The embattled New Republic reels from the attacks of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who has marshaled the remnants of the Imperial forces and driven the Rebels back with an abominable technology recovered from the Emperor's secret fortress: clone soldiers.

    Overall

    This trilogy by Zahn is what brought Star Wars back into our collective conscience. Why then are his audio books abridged? I love the story, and I love being able to listen to it on my iPod at the gym, but slightly disappointed in not being able to listen to the entire work as Zahn originally penned it. It's still a good listen, even though it leaves out half the book. It would be awesome though, if there were radio drama style, unabridged, versions of his books.

    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 by the Emperor on a backwater planet, Thrawn plans to turn the tide of battle, overwhelm the New Republic, and impose his iron rule throughout the galaxy.

    Heir to the Empire begins five years after Return of the Jedi. The Rebel Alliance has destroyed the Death Star, defeated Darth Vader and the Emperor, and driven the remnants of the old Imperial Starfleet back into a quarter of the territory it once controlled. But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor's warlords have taken command of the remains of the Imperial fleet - and have made two vital discoveries that could destroy the fragile new Republic.
