Here is a special edition 20th anniversary release of the number-one New York Times best-selling novel that reignited the entire Star Wars publishing phenomenon - unabridged for the first time. The biggest event in the history of Star Wars books, Heir to the Empire follows the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia after they led the Rebel Alliance to victory in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.
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. For this dark warrior has made two vital discoveries that could destroy everything the courageous men and women of the Rebel Alliance fought so hard to create.
The explosive confrontation that results is a towering epic of action, invention, mystery, and spectacle on a galactic scale - in short, a story worthy of the name Star Wars.

Having never read this before it was good getting a story set after Return of the Jedi. Thrawne is interesting so far. The political situation I'm so so on but will see how it plays out. TFA has peaked my interest in going back to stuff I never read and this being the first book is a nice start.
Terrific book! Progression was almost a seemless tie-in to the original saga. A must for true fans! Looking forward to book 2 and 3!
Revelations of new Jedi
The whole book
the plot was amazing
i would suggest this book to any star wars fan
This was my first Star Wars book and it was amazing! I've never listened to such a perfectly done audio book.
I need to do some research and find out what books to read after this trilogy.
I chose to listen to this book as a way to get ready and excited for the new movie coming out. I enjoyed listening to this story. The narration and sound effects were great.
