Hugo Award-winning author Timothy Zahn makes his triumphant return to the Star Wars(r) universe in this first of an epic new two-volume series in which the New Republic must face its most dangerous enemy yet--a dead Imperial warlord.
The Empire stands at the brink of total collapse. But they have saved their most heinous plan for last. First a plot is hatched that could destroy the New Republic in a bloodbath of genocide and civil war. Then comes the shocking news that Grand Admiral Thrawn--the most cunning and ruthless warlord in history--has apparently returned from the dead to lead the Empire to a long-prophesied victory. Facing incredible odds, Han and Leia begin a desperate race against time to prevent the New Republic from unraveling in the face of two inexplicable threats--one from within and one from without. Meanwhile, Luke teams up with Mara Jade, using the Force to track down a mysterious pirate ship with a crew of clones. Yet, perhaps most dangerous of all, are those who lurk in the shadows, orchestrating a dark plan that will turn the New Republic and the Empire into their playthings.

"Zahn turns in his usual high-caliber performance." (Library Journal)
The book is as great and action packed, also has an excellent narrator! I would recommend definitely checking out the original Thrawn trilogy first though.
Audible allows me to take a vacation not just to exotic places but to exotic galaxy's and realms. for that I am thankful. this is app #1.
Although a lil short for the price, it is a good follow up to the trilogy. It is not a let down.
Everything about this was great. This was a stellar sequel to the incredible thrawn trilogy. And Marc Thompson is absolutely incredible! Every voice was unique and pleasant to listen to, as well as very fitting of the characters. It was not uncommon for me to sit in my car after any sort of trip not wanting to stop it.
I enjoy the continued adventures of the main characters from the original trilogy plus newcomers. The Force is well woven through the tale and there are micro and macro storyline a to enjoy. This one really spreads its wings and pulls you along. Can't wait to listen to book two.
In one year, I heard 70 Audible books. I would not have been able to read a quarter of that amount.
I loved it! Zahn is the Master Jedi of the Star Wars expanded universe! Now, on to Vision of the Future...
