    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....

    Marc Thompson is truly an amazing narrator. Unabridged star war books sound so much better. With Abridge versions I feel the narration is rushed and forceful, but unabridged versions really make the story come to life and with Marc narrating, you know the characters will be spot on. I never read the Thrawn Trilogy, but I could immediately get into the plot, and there's enough suspense and action in this one to keep you glued to it till the end. I hope they do remake the others so I can finish the series. Definitely recommend it!

    Please keep making unabridged versions with Marc Thompson and I will continue to buy them!

    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?

    Story

    The plot was a little slow at first, but I got into it fairly quickly. I think Zahn was trying to create a star wars / Ocean 11 story here (with a slightly different take), and it worked out quite well (Could this be one of the potential movie plots?). Zahn has always been a great author for me so I did not hesitate on getting this one and it certainly did not let me down. Love the character set, even if there wasn't a ton of character development, it was more of an action novel than something more deep and of course Marc Thompson does a flawless job with the narration. I was very impressed with how he did his voice of Winter IDENTICAL to the voice he did with her in the Thrawn Trilogy. That speaks of how professional and talented he is. There were a lot of voices in this book to create and he made them all very unique and easy to figure out who is saying what. Truly an amazing narrator. Keep them coming Marc!
