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.

    "What a Ride"

    Mara Jade's journey was amazing. The end battle was truly thrilling! This series dragged in the middle, but the finale was worth the wait.

    "Amazing End to an Amazing Trilogy"

    I read the Thrawn trilogy a couple of times years ago (in paper edition). I remembered them as being really good books...but I forgot just how totally fantastic they are. Until now.

    The story is great---Timothy Zahn really captured the world of Star Wars, the feel for the stories and the characters (now 5 years after the events in Return of the Jedi) as they build the New Republic and still war with the remnant of the Empire. The new characters he added fit into the Star Wars universe perfectly. Zahn's pacing, story elements and writing just make them fun books. On top of that, Zahn wrote these books in the early 1990's, so they are not contaminated by the prequel trilogy.

    I would give Marc Thompson's narration 6 or even 7 stars if I could. He managed to catch many of the voices so sound much like the original actors from the films. Maybe not perfectly, but quite good given that it all came from one larynx...I assume the post-production played some games to enhance that, but even so. Amazing.

    The post-production also added music and background sound effects to try to enhance the effect. In general, I liked that, although I think it got distracting on occasion.

    The Thrawn series is published as a trilogy, but really it is one, large 3-part novel. You will need to commit to finishing the whole thing...especially since you will have a hard time putting it down once you start.

    "Top notch storytelling, fantastic conclusion"

    Fantastic conclusion to this trilogy. Keeps you riveted during the finale and keeps the Jedi mythos intact. Great springboard to the EU. Too bad Disney didn't keep it canon.

    "Great job"

    Marc Thompson did an amazing job on his narrative of these books. The emotion captured made it feel you were actually in the story.

    "The thrilling conclusion"

    Now here we are at the end of the journey that started in The Heir to the Empire. What an adventure. This series has nailed what StarWars is about. Fun, imaginative, optimistic, and an excellent tale for all!

    Even if you aren't a big Star Wars fan, I encourage to read this series. It is fantastic! Unbelievably so! It is one of the best written stories I've had the pleasure of reading.

    In the epic conclusion is all comes down to the last, tense few moments. And against Grand Admiral Thrawn, you really feel like the New Republic just barely won.

    This is the Star Wars trilogy that should always be, and in my opinion, even surpasses the original movies. Spend three credits on this series, you won't regret it.
