Publisher's Summary

Hugo Award-winning author Timothy Zahn brings his epic two-volume series The Hand of Thrawn to an explosive conclusion with a discovery that rocks the New Republic to its foundations - and threatens to resurrect the Empire.
The Empire's master plan is under way. The New Republic is on the verge of civil war and the rumor that the legendary Admiral Thrawn has returned from the dead is rallying the Imperial forces. Now Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and their allies face the challenge of their lives. They must infiltrate a hidden fortress filled with Imperial fanatics, rendezvous with a double-dealing Imperial commander, and journey into enemy territory to learn the identity of those responsible for an act of unthinkable genocide. But most important of all is the truth about Thrawn. In his hands - alive or dead - rests the fate of the New Republic.

A great little end to the Zahn Thrawn stories

I have to admit it wasn't my favorite of the Time Zahn Star Wars books but it was a sweet end to the always awesome Thrawn series. As for what isn't so great about it is how it a little to fractured for my total liking and the end seemed rushed. I do think this could possibly have been split up a bit more to a third book if you are going to have some many moving parts to it. All I'm all though I'm happy. It's too bad this stories isn't canon anymore but I can see how bit a pieces can be mined for later main Saga movies. Oh and always the voice talent for this series is top notch. May the force be with you.

Beautiful and Masterfully Performed (As always)

This is nothing short of a Zahn masterpiece. Don't be daunted by the length of this novel, every minute is crammed with Star Wars magic and every minute is brought to life by the maestro of Star Wars narration that is Marc Thompson. Although this novel is beautifully woven with many subplots, the strongest moments of this novel come from the budding relationship between our favourite farm boy and Mara Jade. The story may seem a little wierd at the start but as it progresses it starts to completely make sense and by the end, you can't help but applaud the skill and effort shown by the grand-daddy of Star Wars novels. In conclusion, this novel must be read by any fan of Star Wars, although I STRONGLY recommend that you read the Thrawn Trilogy and the prequel to this book (Spectre of the Past) in order to fully appreciate the story.

Why isn't this canon?

After the original Thrawn trilogy being so brilliant I was a little dubious about another story involving the blue genius. Well I couldn't be happier for diving in. Possibly the best in the series. So much going on, so many angles, so many new arcs not explored before. The only problem I have now, is where do I go from here. There are so many books I've not read or heard yet now I know roughly how it all ends for the old EU (now non canon).

Hot and cold

This was a very hot and cold book for me. There were times I was completely hooked and then times I found myself really bored.

I felt the overall story was a bit weak and left some areas unresolved. Once again though the narrator was fantastic and truly bought the book to life.

thrawn disappointment

I loved the original thrawn trilogy and hoped that this would be more thrawn tactical genius. it really isn't and while the voice acting is good as always the story is too cliche and was just a long stretch of pain the whole way.
