Publisher's Summary

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.

More in the Thrawn Trilogy we have. And listen to all of our Star Wars titles you can!

    Any additional comments?

    The performance was amazing, except that I wasn't a big fan of the voice acting for the wookie. Thank you, Timothy Zahn and Marc Thompson. Great story, great acting.

    "Loved it since I was eight"

    when I was six my dad bought me this audio book abridged. I loved it then. it was the only thing that could help me sleep and I could recite the words. it grew my love for the star wars universe into what it now is. thee edition only improves upon what I had listen to as a child. finally I get more information, even though it maybe considered unneeded.

    in short, I love this book. I adore it. and I suggest every one that has not read it who loves star wars, read this book. and for ever one that has. . . WASN'T IT AWESOME?!?!?!
