Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 3: The Last Command

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Marc Thompson makes the book."

    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.

    "Great Read, From Beginning To End!"

    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.

    "One of the best"

    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.

    "Great Conclusion to the Trilogy"
    If you could sum up Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 3: The Last Command in three words, what would they be?

    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


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 3: The Last Command?

    I will not say what was the most memorable moment as I do not want to spoil it for anyone.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    It is amazing how many voices this guy can come up with, in particular he does a very good Han Solo and Lando


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes I wish I could have listened to it in one sitting, but its way to long too.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the entire Trilogy

    One of the best

    No but I couldn't stop listening

    "Very good"
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 3: The Last Command the most enjoyable?

    I had never heard or read this part of Star Wars. Thrawn was a master but too power hungry and too sure of himself.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Thrawn, very good but too sure of himself


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    He did a great job and you forgot who you were listening to which is a sign of a good narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and know. It was easy to get back into and is great to listen to over again.


    Any additional comments?

    It's worth your time.

    "Excellent listen"
    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    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.

    "Great story, Great reader"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 3: The Last Command to be better than the print version?

    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.
