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.

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.
Loved it! It wrapped the story very well and the audio production and the actor's performance were amazing just as in the other 2 books in the trilogy!
I'm a Star Wars fan but never read any of the books. I'm so glad I completed this trilogy. I plan to finish as many books as I can before December. I'm mostly planning to stay with the books performed by Marc Thompson. He really makes the experience awesome!
The voice acting, the story, and the lore are all impeccably well done. I was invested in the story the whole time.
