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.
Meanwhile, Han and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside the highest Republican Council - only to discover instead a ghostly fleet of warships that could bring doom to their friends and victory to their enemies.
Yet most dangerous of all is a new Dark Jedi, risen from the ashes of a shrouded past, consumed by bitterness...and scheming to corrupt Luke Skywalker to the Dark Side.

They are about the same. It is nice to hear Marc Thomason reading it though.
Heir to the Empire. I think that one is obvious.
Star Wars Dark Forces Rising. Enough said.
great book with great narration.
This is classic Star Wars. If you miss the universe from before Lucas ruined things with the prequels, this is what you're looking for. I wish this series had been made into episodes VII, VIII, and IX as long as Lucas had kept his hands off it.

The narrator--wow, was there really only one!--made each voice so distinctive, expressive, and believable, even for someone like me who has watched the original movies so many times. I tried reading the trilogy because my daughter loved it so, but I kept bogging down and only got about half through this book. When all three came out in unabridged form I got them. What seemed a little hokey and very hard to follow in print came alive in these audiobooks. The story really was great. It was like having those other three installments to the 9-movie series once talked about. It really was as good as a movie. Truly five stars in every way--the story, the narration, and the production quality.
I read this when it came out, and was excited to see it made an audiobook. I waited until we got the unabridged version.
IMHO Jim Dale reading the Harry Potter series is the gold start by which all other aduiobook performances should be measured. Marc Thompson gives Mr.Dale a real run for his money. He is extremely skilled at it and makes the experience better. I cannot give him enough praise.
I read this trilogy a long time ago, but this audiobook made it an entirely new and awesome experience. If you're a Star Wars fan, then this series is a MUST listen.
Yes, it was good production, love the story
