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.

The story is definitely a good one, but Marc Thompson's voice acting makes the book amazing. Pretty decent wrap of the trilogy, but does leave you wanting more. Even if you are a passing Star Wars fan, this is worth the read.
I loved this Trilogy! (I refer not only to this book, but to the entire Thrawn Trilogy because in my opinion it cannot be judged except as a whole)
It continued the Star Wars experience for me and kept me hooked form beginning to end.
Marc Thompson has a real way with the voices of each character, very convincing!
I think it is a great "first place" to begin after you have watched episodes 1-6. You do not have to have read any of those books to enjoy these.
What a ending!!!!
Was Luke or Card in first two books but this book def Han Solo
Carried a drive in his voice, you connected not only with the character but the voice speaking as the character
If i didnt have to work and socialize I would def do it
This was the first Star Wars book I had ever read. I remember seeing it in book stores when I was young. As a teen when I became interested in Star Wars and read the book I was blown away. From this trilogy I became a huge fan of the universe of Star Wars... Timothy Zahn is very gifted. Should have been made into a movie.
After listening to the first 2 books in this series I couldn't wait to hear the third. It does not disappoint in bringing the entire story to a conclusion
I will not say what was the most memorable moment as I do not want to spoil it for anyone.
It is amazing how many voices this guy can come up with, in particular he does a very good Han Solo and Lando
Yes I wish I could have listened to it in one sitting, but its way to long too.
Loved the entire Trilogy
One of the best
It compares to return of the jedi, it has all the classic starwars feel and excited without being ruined by the horrible new prequels
No but I couldn't stop listening
I am now addicted to all the star wars novels
I had never heard or read this part of Star Wars. Thrawn was a master but too power hungry and too sure of himself.
Thrawn, very good but too sure of himself
He did a great job and you forgot who you were listening to which is a sign of a good narrator.
Yes and know. It was easy to get back into and is great to listen to over again.
It's worth your time.
I love the performance and the book is engaging. If you are a star wars fan you will love it and if you just like an engaging story with a great character driven plot you will love this book.
I'm usually not impressed with "theatrical" narrations but this was wonderful - just the right amount of special effects to complement the story without adding confusion or feeling contrived. Marc Thompson's voices for all the various characters were spot on.
I loved the print version when it was first released, but Marc Thompson has a way of making the characters come alive. I have forgotten what Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill or Carrie Fisher actually sound like. Marc's voices for Han, Luke and Leia are 'real' for me now.
