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.

A thrilling listen from start to finish. Admiral Thron is a devious and threatening bad guy that most series can only hope to create. Full of excellent twists and turns, as well as interesting new characters. The narrator's ability to create voices make this book a colorful and engaging listen.
This was a great series. It sets up a lot of interesting future events. I wish this had been the next movie instead of the force awakens.
Say something about yourself!
his ability to change voices almost helps me visualize the characters.
A little heavy on the sound effects.
