Description

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. With the aid of unimaginable weapons long hidden away by the Emperor on a backwater planet, Thrawn plans to turn the tide of battle, overwhelm the New Republic, and impose his iron rule throughout the galaxy.

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

As with first book, great story and stellar perf.

as with the first book of the trilogy, the story is engaging and feels very much star wars; the perormance is perfect with a great set of voices by Marc Thompson, especially his han and luke voices ( thrawn & pelyon too but they don't have movie counterparts).

UNABRIDGED!!

Finally the unabridged version. What more could you want? Marc Thompson did a great job with the reading and the production quality seems to be on pair with all the other Star Wars books. I would say this is a must have.

Marc Thompson Delivers Again!

Any additional comments?

Having listened to the First volume of the Thrawn Series done by Thompson, I knew I had to wait until he completed his versions of the second two volumes. I am glad I waited. The story is excellent, as most people already know. However, Thompson gives an excellent performance enhanced by a great and not overbearing soundtrack, deliver an amazing entertainment experience. Get this audio-book, you will not be disappointed.

The adventure continues...

Following in the footsteps of last year's 20th anniversary release of Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire, Marc Thompson delivers another perfect performance with this second installment of The Thrawn Trilogy. For the uninitiated, this series' popularity helped launch the expanded universerse we all take for granted now. For example, the 'Imperial Planet' was first named Coruscant in this trilogy. If you enjoyed it as much as I did, this audiobook will make you want to listen to the third and final book, The Last Command, thankfully also available unabridged and narrated by Marc Thompson. The Force is strong with this one!

Marc Thompson,Timothy Zahn what else do you need?

Any additional comments?

Marc Thompson' performance of this brilliant story is second to none. He created voices for previously unknown characters and did a fantastic job on mimicing the characters we all know from the first three films. His portrayal of Grand Admiral Thrawn really made the character come to life. He was menacing and always in control. Really great series.

Why didn't they use this writing for the movie!?

The force awakens is a horrible recycled plot. This trilogy thus far has been great! I'm pretending the movie in my head is the one in theaters.

Another great book by Tim Zahn. Hope they re-do the "Hand of Thrawn" series. Un-Abridged and with Marc Thompson doing the reading.

Ideal sequel trilogy

Perfect story, perfect narrator, what more do you want?! If you like Star Wars this is a must. Seriously, stop reading and get it now!

Why are you still reading this? Thrawn is the perfect nemesis after Vader and Palpatine. Now go and buy this trilogy.

Good story, great performance

Once again a great performance by Marc Thompson. However the sound effects that are constantly repeated are annoying.

Awesome !

Its a nice story and in my opinion way better than the new movie !
If the new movie was a disappointment for you, you should check out this trilogy (15h per book 45 total and after downloading you can listen to it without connection on a flight or something like that) but just the best thing about it are the voice acting and the sound effects (yup sound effects like blasterfire in an audiobook) , but I have to say its sad to know that disney made all that non canon (so it did not happen in Star Wars 7) .
All in all :
If you like the original Star Wars you should buy this !

Zwar kein Kanon mehr...

...aber trotzdem eine sehr gute Geschichte.

Teil zwei einer Trilogie, hört euch auf jedenfall auch die anderen Teile an.

Der Gegenspieler (Admiral Thrawn) macht die ganze Geschichte erst recht interessant

Star Wars wie es besser nicht sein könnte.

Als ich diese Buchreihe als Teenager das erste Mal las, war ich begeistert. Bis heute hat sich daran nichts geändert. Zahn hat die Idee von Star Wars aufgegriffen und einfach wundervolll weitergesponnen und schenkt einigen der vielen Ungereimtheiten der Filme einen Sinn.

Good story well told and animated

Zahn knows how to write a story gripping and entertaining. Marc Thompson is the ideal reader that knows the caracters well and does great impersonation of the protagonists that lets you think you hear the protagonists speaking. Just great!

Einfach nur gut!

Der Sprecher verleiht allen Charakteren eine individuelle Stimme, die Sounduntermalung ist immer passend. Die Handlung bleibt auf hohem Niveau und sollte unbedingt verfilmt werden. Ich freue mich schon auf dem letzten Teil....

Fantastic 2nd part of the Thrawn triology

The second book starts where the first ended. Its pacing is great and it never gets boring. The production is absolutely great; the narrator does a fantastic job and audio effects as well as music provide the perfect Star Wars feeling.

stunning narrator

I think I don't need to write about the book. I always liked the Thrawn-Trilogy a lot, so I was a bit doubtful if an audiobook might spoil the stories for me.
But, what I hadn't really imagined from the short audio sample I listened to before buying " Heir to the Empire": Marc Thompson is a genius! He got every single person right, I think, and he is even able to read a Wookie (namely Ralrra).
I'm very happy with these 3 audiobook!
