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.

I have known about this series for a while but never had the chance to read or hear them. However before the book was done I picked up the rest of the trilogy.
Loved it a great way to expand the storyline, the begining of a new empire
I read the book series when it first came out. Couldn't put it down then... could not stop listening to it, once I started.
Loved the continued story and voices. The sound effects too! Voices sounded just like the characters! No other audio books I've found can do that!!
All of them.
Nope first one.
The light saber fights with all the sound effects.
On to the next book!
Absolutely enthralling. Don't pass this up! Thrawn is as terrifying if nor more so than Vader and you're missing out on an AMAZING slice of the universe if you pass this up.
