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.

This truly was a great read. I throughly enjoyed this unabridged performance with great production and sound effect to help encompass the listener into the story as if it were a radio play. Well worth its place in Star Wars lore.
This is a great story but the thing that I love most about the series is the performance of the narrator.The characterizations he presents are spot on from your classic Star Wars characters to his interpretation of the new expanded universe characters.
I've read this trilogy a half a dozen times and listened to it at least 3. Never gets old. Also, Marc Thompson dies a great job in this, and all, SW EU books.
