    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....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Gods yes! From the start till the end, production for this book was awesome. From the *snap sizzle pop buzz* sound of the light sabre going live to screaming tie fighters to hissing blast doors opening and closing the book was filled with sounds that not only put you right in the middle of things, made it an experience that no movie can duplicate.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    I don't know how he did it but the voices we all have come to associate the characters with, from Han Solo's drawl to luke's "aw shucks!" manerisms to even C3PO]s crisp brit accent, were all done remarkably well. I could have sworn they got the original actors to come in and did the lines.

    Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward - wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders - his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

    I have withheld writing a review till now since in truth, I wasn't too sure if I was able to finish the Wheel of time series as was the case with the printed books. Thanks to Audible though, I finally was able to catch up to the current book and hence this review.

    First and foremost, thank the living stars for Brandon Sanderson. I mean it. This book is by far the best in the series. Not only he has picked up and tied up loose ends that Jordan should have done so perhaps as far back as book six, but has forwarded the story in this one book that Jordan himself would have needed three to do so, fluff and filler padding to the story notwithstanding. If I could give it a standing ovation, I would.

    Having said that, I still cannot recommend anyone to start with this book, great as it is. There is just too much that had gone on in the past that will throw off a new reader without that background knowledge. Don't get me wrong, the first six books were great, the next five more or less filler material just prepping the reader for this book.

    At this point, I can't wait for the last final two in the Series. If Brandon Sanderson does as well a job as he did with this one, at least the Wheel of Time series will end with a bang instead of a whimper as with many multiple book series.
