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.

Mora Jade, Great character transformation
I am little disappointed in the ending. Seems that Zahn ran out of time and just ended the 3 story lines with a sentence on each part. "Oh hey I need to end this, so this just happens and that just happens and end of story? ..... Wait what?
Wow. I love Star Wars and this book took that passion to an entirely new place. These, if turned into movies, would potentially be the trilogy everyone would talk about for 50+ years. Incredible story, incredible villain, and twists that keep on coming...all tied up in a perfect bow at the end. Well done sirs.
Fantastic book, excellent narration and production, it's like listening to an old radio serial; don't hesitate to buy this book!
i loved this book!! I thoroughly enjoyed the performance by Marc Thompson, who in my opinion should narrate all Star Wars novels! He had such an understanding of each character and their personality! the voices for Han, Luke and Lando are just uncanny!! they are literally spot on!! i hope Audible renews all of the locals that are just abridged into unabridged with Marc Thompson at the helm for narration!!
The story was great, all three books were awesome!! i highly recommend it!!
