    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....

    God bless Wedge and 3PO for their roles in saving the rebelion, however their slaughter of these books (mostly Danniels) shouldn't have taken 15-20 years to correct. I do realize they had time restrictions to work with and that audio books were not that big a deal back then. It's almost as if they were given a copy of the book, a tape recorder, a quiet room and told to go read. I obviously don't know any sales records but I'd be willing to venture a guess that this is, or will be Audibles biggest money maker of the Star Wars series of books. Heres the best part, they'll do it 2 more times if their smart. Thank you Marc Thompson for doing Timmothy Zahns work the justice it deserves.

    The era of the Old Republic is a dark and dangerous time, as Jedi Knights valiantly battle the Sith Lords and their ruthless armies. But the Sith have disturbing plans - and none more so than the fulfillment of Darth Scabrous’s fanatical dream, which is about to become nightmarish reality. Unlike those other Jedi sidelined to the Agricultural Corps - young Jedi whose abilities have not proved up to snuff - Hestizo Trace possesses one extraordinary Force talent: a gift with plants....

    Thomas says: "Below Average for a Star Wars book"
    "Well, it was a good READ"
    Overall

    It's not my intent to speak poorly about John Glover, but the way he reads this story and puts emphasis on some of the words like when he says "the force" (you'll know what I mean when you hear it) makes it seem as though he's never heard of Star Wars before. The book it's self is good, it's a great backstory for Death Troopers. How about we re-do this one with Marc Thompson, get the pronounciations right, the Sith voices right and rework that weird tree librarian thing. Do that and it's 5 stars.
