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 is a great story but the thing that I love most about the series is the performance of the narrator.The characterizations he presents are spot on from your classic Star Wars characters to his interpretation of the new expanded universe characters.
I've read this trilogy a half a dozen times and listened to it at least 3. Never gets old. Also, Marc Thompson dies a great job in this, and all, SW EU books.
I enjoy "Sherlock Holmes." Classics like "Dracula" and "The Three Muskeeteers,"but predominately Star Wars. Thanks Audible!
Two masters at work, Zahn and Thompson! The best antagonist in Thrawn period. Mara Jade! Wow! Richly developed story and of course our Star Wars heroes.
I do recommend!!! Narration is done really well with what you might expect. You will really enjoy this great audio book.
I know Zahn isn't "canon" anymore but he still writes the best star wars stories of anyone (Lucas included) . I read the books years ago but the narration on this audio book is like being in a movie. JJ doesn't just have to live up to the movie but he has to live up to the test of the best of the EU stories and the Thrawn trilogy stands out among the pack.
