Publisher's Summary

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.

    "It's like reading a movie."

    Did you know that there are over a million inhabited planets in the Star Wars universe? A million! What a backdrop for a space opera! You'd imagine that a galactic war would span thousands of planets and involve billions of people, right? Wrong. There's about five planets that have any importance. As for people, well... you better hope your last name is Skywalker. If not, you're very unlikely to have any role whatsoever in the events of the galaxy.

    So, the scope of the planets and the characters is limited. The scope of the planets and the characters utilized in the original trilogy (4,5,6) were limited and those movies are excellent! However, these books fall flat because they are books. Instead of two hours in a cinema, we're treated to 16 hours of dialogue. Dialogue that doesn't need sets or actors. We could have been transported to anywhere in the Star Wars Universe and we're given five planets and a handful of characters.

    Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this book and the trilogy. I just wanted more.

    "Good book for YA audiences!"

    A great book with great moments, this book wraps up the series nicely! The fate of the Empire and the New Republic alike in one sick twist ending!

    "Wow. Must Read."

    Wow. From beginning my to end, I was on the edge of my seat. Could not stop listening. The voice work was excellent. I felt like I was there in some of those scenes. Wow. My favorite book of an already amazing trilogy. The only problem is that it requires you to have read the first to books. But but a perfect end to a great trilogy. Must read.

    "A sardonically sardonic review"
    Any additional comments?

    Please, please, please Timothy Zahn, find another word beyond "sardonic", in this trilogy, he must use that adjective at least 50 times. It became overwhelming distracting. Otherwise, the story was great!

    "Decent But too Derivative"

    excellent voice acting on a cliche story which draws on too many Starwars story beats

    "Great ending"

    Loved the ending. Thrawn is definitely one of my favorite characters! Too bad we'll never see him on the big screen...
