Overview

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.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

    A thrilling conclusion to a terrific trilogy.

    The story wraps up the Thrawn story arc perfectly. Every question is answered in thrilling fashion. Timothy Zahn is a terrific author and should write many more books in the Star Wars series.

    Dissapointing space battle

    It was great to find out the conclusion but a lack of information about a certain major spacw battle makes it look like the author cut the book short to fit it within 400 pages. A little dissapointed but still a great read the rest of the book

    the best of the best it is worthy of the name star wars

    this is really a great novel i heard timothy zahn might write a book about how jorus c'baoth was cloned and yes this book had battle scenes that reminded me of the death star 2 battle sequences and yes wedge and corran horn are my favorite charecters and luke leia and han and chewie and c3p0 and r2d2 but man i can not wait to read specter of the past and vision of the future by timothy zahn

    Best of the 3

    Heir was awesome/ Dark was weak (in my opinion)/ But this DAD here was the hammer on the nail. Great conclusion, great finish, great story. Probably one of the great Star Wars Novel fights/ battles.

    An amazing conclusion to an outstanding trilogy

    This book was amazing. I thought the first two in the trilogy were great, but this one was definitely the best. I intended to just read a couple of chapters at a time, but I could barely put the book down! Between the New Republic's trouble with Thrawn and C'Baoth's plans to get Luke, Mara, and Leia under his control, it was thrilling all the way through. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would.

    Must Read

    This book is my personal favorite in the Thrawn Chronicals. Tons of lghtsaber fights and new characters. Wether you enjoy lightsaber duels , ground battles, or rouge Squadron battles you will love this book. This is one of my personal favorite Star Wars books that kept me off of the edge of my seet.Th awesome new characters like Mara Jade(not rely new but first real introduction)provide you with plenty of suspension. Mara or The Emperor's hand along with luke Skywalker try to battle the new empore Caboth(a cloned Jedi Master)whitch is what makes this book realy great. And if you don't enjoy lightsaber battles then grand Admiral Thrawn will provide plenty military and political angles of this book to provide you with what you like. Even if you haven't read the other two books in this series you still must read this book.
