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.

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.

    "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.

    "Great wrap up of the series"

    The end of the book was sort of rushed. They could have taken more time with the last events. Otherwise, the book makes me want to find more Star Wars books.

    "Classic Star Wars from Before Lucas Ruined It"

    This is classic Star Wars. If you miss the universe from before Lucas ruined things with the prequels, this is what you're looking for. I wish this series had been made into episodes VII, VIII, and IX as long as Lucas had kept his hands off it.

    Would you listen to Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 3: The Last Command again? Why?

    Yes


    Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Listened to the whole trilogy. Great performance in all three. I wish he was doing every star wars story.

    Wish all Star Wars books were unabridged and performed by Marc Thompson.

    "AMAZING CONCLUSION!!"

    I read the trilogy almost a decade ago, but this audiobook really brought it to life. An epic conclusion to the series that made me wish all Star Wars books were this good.

    "Enjoyable conclusion to a worthy trilogy"

    I had a big, nerdy grin on my face throughout listening to this audio book. Despite a few minor holes in the writing (I'm talking minor, here), The Last Command was a ton of fun and a very satisfying conclusion to the Thrawn trilogy.

    Marc Thompson's performance and the production qualities of the audio were absolutely brilliant. I cannot imagine that a physical reading of this book would be nearly as enjoyable as listening to it. Thompson's impersonation of the Star Wars characters was uncanny, and even had me laughing (Lando Calrissian – oh my gosh!).

    Too bad Lucas won't make another trilogy. I would have paid gladly to see the Thrawn Trilogy turned into an Episode 7, 8 and 9. Nicely done, Timothy Zahn!

    "The Saga is Complete!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The completion of unabridged books to the Thrawn trilogy is a delight to Star Wars fans.


    What did you like best about this story?

    To be immersed in the Star Wars universe again with great storytelling, sound effects and terrific narration.


    Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As good as the other 2 Thrawn Triology books. His voices are fantastic.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was only saddened when it was over.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to find additional UNABRIDGED Star Wars titles given the treatment the Thrawn trilogy received. How about the Hand of Thrawn books? Based on the reviews, I won't be getting the ABRIDGED versions...

    "Wow!"
    Would you listen to Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 3: The Last Command again? Why?

    What a wonderful book and the performance by Marc Thompson was phenomenal. I own the old, abridged, audiobooks and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! If you're a Star Wars fan, you MUST own this audiobook trilogy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Grand Admiral Thrawn of course. He's a bada**! It's not often that I read a book and hope the villan wins but he's the exception to the rule. It's a real shame in the end..


    What does Marc Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He makes me feel like there's a whole cast of people narrating. What talent he has! I can't believe it's just him doing all the voices. The production value is very good as well, with sound effects coming in at just the right times.


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

    No, I listed to it an hour or so at a time while exercising.

    Lots of books lots of time. I love all things Star Wars and fantasy. The Bartimaeus trilogy (or quad) maybe the perfect series. Jonathan Stroud and Douglas Adams are my heroes.

    "Red Eyes Smiling on an Interdictor Star Destroyer"
    If you could sum up Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 3: The Last Command in three words, what would they be?

    New Republic Birth


    What did you like best about this story?

    This was an excellent conclusion to the trilogy. I'm saddened by the fact that the new movies are going to develop independently from this time line... But read away! If you love Luke like I love Luke, this is the book for you.


    Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Marc is the voice of the extended universe, on of the best narrators period.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nooope, just a solid 5 stars.
