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.

Fluid Storyline while switching points of view,

Love this series and this reader. A trilogy to remember! It keeps a good energy and keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat as to how things will play out. Read this as a kid and have loved rediscovering it on audible!

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.

The thrawn series never gets old. They are best books in Star Wars EU. The performance is great from Marc as well, really brings to life Timothy's book.

I absolutely enjoy this series. If you like Star Wars, then try these books. They are well written, and the narration is extremely good here.
