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.

I don't think I will be able to properly describe how good this book (and series) is. Everything is built up so carefully, artistically, and intelligently. The climax and ending of the novel is a soltely EPIC. The last scene with Thrawn made my day.

Excellent Quality Narrators and Story line, Timothy Zahn is the Best Star Wars written I have read/Listened to so far, really enjoyed listening to this 3 Set Series, looking forward to more from Timothy Zahn..
I only wrote a review for the last book because I wanted to experience the story as a whole and I have to say I was extremely satisfied. The first book I didn't think was that great but the end of it seriously sets you up for the second one. So by the time you reach the third book you should be as excited as I was to see how it all goes down. This series is amazing, aside from a few voice acting quarks that would be difficult no matter what the series was really really good.
The only negative thing I would have to say is that it ended way to abruptly! I wish it would have elaborated just a bit more, otherwise another wonderful story!!!
