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.

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.

shame it's not cannon

Simple story very well acted throughout. some loose ends and unexplored sections that were worthy of more. Nevitts part could have had a more significant payoff. But overall worth listening to both parts.

A good yarn for a Star Wars fanboy/girl

Great fun overall. And fun voices from Thompson, though the flying creatures can be a little hard to take.

It's a bit 'over written' in places, but good character development for real Star Wars fans.

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.
