14 hours 56 minutes
In this essential Star Wars Legends novel, the sequel to Heir to the Empire, Grand Admiral Thrawn’s sinister plan threatens to spell doom for the fledgling New Republic and its most iconic heroes.

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. Meanwhile, Han Solo and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside the highest Republic 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.

It's a decent book. I enjoyed the story. There are developing relationships between Luke and Mara, and Thrawn and C'Baoth that are interesting. I find myself pulling for Thrawn

Grand Admiral Thrown is legitimately the best character of Star Wars. This audiobook captures his masterful continuation of hit debut immaculately.

I really dislike this writing of Thrawn's character. He goes from being a compelling brilliant underdog to just another frothing zealot with a Win At All Cost attitude. It's so played and a boring read of what used to be a nuanced character.

Not the virtual blackface with Lando. Han sounds like Joe from Family Guy. Luke sounds dangerous for no reason. Mara and Leia are corny af but that could be the poor dialogue

I'm beyond impressed with this series. Timothy Zahn has captured the excitement, feel, and tempo of the Original Trilogy we all love. Our characters come to life in a brand new adventure that keeps the reader wanting more. Marc Thompson is a fantastic narrator who does an excellent job with each character's unique voice. He makes the words truly come to life. Don't look any further, just download it and see for yourself!

This is a production! It sounds like and feels like a 10 hour long radio drama. The story line is top notch as all Zahn Star Wars is, and Thompson brings it to life.
