The embattled Republic reels from the attacks of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who has marshaled the remnants of the Imperial forces and driven the Rebels back with an abominable technology recovered from the Emperor's secret fortress: clone soldiers. As Thrawn mounts his final siege, Han and Chewbacca struggle to form a coalition of smugglers for a last-ditch attack against the empire, while Leia holds the Alliance together and prepares for the birth of her Jedi twins.
Overwhelmed by the ships and clones at Thrawn's command, the Republic has one last hope: sending a small force, led by Luke Skywalker, into the very stronghold that houses Thrawn's terrible cloning machines. There a final danger awaits, as the Dark Jedi C'baoth directs the battle against the Rebels and builds his strength to finish what he had already started: the destruction of Luke Skywalker.

until the canon books can write a story as gmood as this "legends" masterpiece, they'll always be a fringe of a shadow of the original trilogy. rather than something comprehensive that adds so much to the original story but still having its own original and amazon touches like this thrilling conclusion to an amazing series.
I loved the immersion I felt while listening in. The characters were well told, the situations described easily triggered an emotional response and the story was top notch.
I really liked the development of various characters relationship with each other. The story was dynamic yet always progressing forward.
The Nogri were all pretty great but the performance on Grand Admiral Thrawn was amazing.
