Dark Force Rising: Star Wars Legends (The Thrawn Trilogy)

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Timothy Zahn

Narrated By: Marc Thompson

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: June 2012

Duration: 14 hours 59 minutes


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.

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

    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
