Publisher's Summary

The dying Empire's most cunning and ruthless warlord - Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the remnants of the Imperial fleet and launched a massive campaign aimed at the New Republic's destruction. With the aid of unimaginable weapons long hidden away by the Emperor on a backwater planet, Thrawn plans to turn the tide of battle, overwhelm the New Republic, and impose his iron rule throughout the galaxy.

Meanwhile, Han and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside the highest Republican Council - only to discover instead a ghostly fleet of warships that could bring doom to their friends and victory to their enemies.

Yet most dangerous of all is a new Dark Jedi, risen from the ashes of a shrouded past, consumed by bitterness...and scheming to corrupt Luke Skywalker to the Dark Side.

    "Nothing really original"

    the author is incapable of coming up with their own original content. They just rehashed characters and situations from the original movies. Leia Organa is completely useless as a character in this novel and would probably be better left out. Some things were good many things were not. The narration was spectacular.

    Story
    "Thrawn!"
    If you could sum up Star Wars: Dark Force Rising: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 2 in three words, what would they be?

    Nogree, Thrawn and lots of references to episodes 4,5 and 6


    What did you like best about this story?

    Thrawn


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    Thrawn


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

    Makes me want more Star Wars. It's a little different reading extended universe stuff that was written before the prequels.


    Any additional comments?

    The best audio book Thrawn is from outbound flight. The voice actor nails him.

    "Another Great Job at Narration!"
    Any additional comments?

    Once again Marc Thompson delivers a top notch performance in the second of this three part series. His renditions of our heroes is very close to the original actors for the most part.
    As for the story, I found it to be mostly entertaining. I may have found it to move a touch slowly at times, but that only lasted a short time and then picked up again.
    Will definitely listen to the third book.
