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.

Timothy Zahn's original Thrawn trilogy (and the 4 other published books that have Thrawn in them somewhat, the Duology + Outbound Flight + Survivor's Quest) are geniune works of art that everyone (hardcore SW fan or not) should read.
The Zahn Thrawn audiobooks that utilize the amazing talents of Marc Thompson to bring all the characters & universe to life really make these novels a must-read, must-listen experience for any human being with who enjoys brilliant storytelling!!!!
great middle book for the Thrawn trilogy, the story is very interesting, characters are great and the performance of the narrator is perfect
Second book of the famous Thrawn Trilogy, Dark Force Rising continues a great story in the Expanded Universe. definitely made all the more engaging with Marc Thompson narrating, and great iconic star wars sound effects in the background. The Thrawn Trilogy is an excellent starting point for anyone wanting to begin a journey into that Expanded Universe far, far away....
Amazing performance to tell the story and I was completely captivated the entire time this series has been the most well done audio series I've heard so far I would definitely recommend listening to all three it's a must-have in your library!
story want bad narrator was good but really was distracting to have sardonically so many times in the story. someone buy a thesaurus for this guy
Had heard that this series was a must read. Initially hesitant being Non-canon, but I regret I didn't earlier. Book one was excellent, book 2 was a continuation of that fantastic story. Looking foward to the last book.
awesome voices and sound effects... good story line soo far.. looking forward to the next book in the series... thanks again!
