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.

    "Great but.."

    Still not as good as the one on Darth Plaegus. That book is incredible.

    This series is ok, but I'll continue it because I'm a fan boy.

    "Episode 8 definitely!"

    This trilogy has been awesome so far! Awesome cliff hanger at the end of this book. I consider the Thrawn Trilogy Episodes 7-9. I am enjoying this Trilogy, Timothy Zahn has got the characters spot on!

    "Well done, a few annoying bits."

    very good overall. wookie "basic" speech is annoying but sparse. this author hates pronouns; uses"the other" too much, but otherwise exactly what you want from Star Wars.

    "Great Character Development"

    Great development of the characters. I really enjoyed this one, from the series. The progression of personality from background figures was well done. Thanks :)

    "fantastic performance for a fantastic sorry"

    This is by far an amazing story. Whether you are a hardcore Stuart Wars fan or not, the story is compelling with plenty of twists and turns to keep you on your toes.

    Marc Thompson's performance was equally amazing. Though I'm not sure if he voiced ALL the characters, the voice acting was superb... except Leah and Luke...I don't know if it was intentional, but they sounded like airheads. The rest of the cast was just great.

    I highly recommend this audiobook.
