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.

This story really shows how much Disney is ruining Star Wars by not following the extended universe stories. The fans deserve these films like these of this trilogy and not the Disney versions! The production value is amazing too provides a lot of imagery with the sounds theyve added to these stories.
Artfully executed and splendidly written, this conclusion boasts the strongest plot line in its trilogy. Following a personal arc of the established main characters more than its prequels, this is a must-read for anyone who wants to get to know Star Wars superior Legends storyline.
This ends a great book series, and I recommend this series for any star 🌟 wars fan new or old.
I enjoyed all the books in the trilogy, but this was the best! A great ending for a great series, it really gave me goosebumps! The performance works flawlessly. The performance is excellent! It's like this book was written to be an audio book. I never thought that a space battle or lightsaber duel in a book could be exciting... I was wrong.
Retired Military Service Member who enjoys a good book with a fascinating story which enables us to travel to distant lands and universes.
What a great follow on story to Return of Jedi. The plot of the entire story develops gracefully and keeps you at the edge of your seat the entire time.
Interesting first hand account and view to the interactions of Mara Jade and Luke; which will help you understand how these two very different and dynamic people within the Star Wars universe come together and ultimately sealed their fates together.
You also see the birth of the Solo children and how they become part of the central group for much of the Star Wars expanded universe.
A must listen if you are a true Star Wars fan.
having read the books years ago I was so excited to do the audio version of the 20th anniversary edition. The stories in this Trilogy are just as good if not better on audio. I cannot recommend this enough for any Star Wars fan and especially those who have yet to explore the expanded universe. You don't have to have your Star Wars friends end up in door anymore. Mark Thompson is by far the best narrator and thankfully does many of the Star Wars novels that have since come out. I hope he sticks with the series from here out. 5 stars!
The Star Wars series written by Timothy Zahn is very entertaining. I recommend you listen to them all, starting with the Thrawn trilogy (5 years after the original series ended), then the Hand of Thrawn Book I and II (10 years after the trilogy). The narrator, Marc Thompson did a superb job of creating distinct voices for each of the major characters and maintaining continuity through all 5 books. I could easily tell one character from the other immediately. The sound affects added to the story without distracting or overpowering. The new characters were imaginative creatures and the battles were cunningly written. Very enjoyable listening to all these books! SusyQ
I just couldn't stop listening. I am completely captivated by Mr. Thompson's narration an amazing performance. If you like Star Wars, you have to listen to this!!!!!!!
