Here is a special edition 20th anniversary release of the #1 New York Times bestselling novel that reignited the entire Star Wars publishing phenomenon - unabridged for the first time. The biggest event in the history of Star Wars books, Heir to the Empire follows the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia after they led the Rebel Alliance to victory in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.

Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights.

But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor's warlords - the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic. For this dark warrior has made two vital discoveries that could destroy everything the courageous men and women of the Rebel Alliance fought so hard to create.

The explosive confrontation that results is a towering epic of action, invention, mystery, and spectacle on a galactic scale - in short, a story worthy of the name Star Wars.

    " When I was a kid, this was a great book. Twenty years later, understanding what good writing is, well, I liked it a lot less. "

    " Not bad for a spin off. A nice way to tide yourself over for episode vii. "

    " A great start to a great trilogy of books, Heir to the Empire introduces a new species to the Star Wars Universe, as well as showing the genius possessed by Grand Admiral Thrawn, possibly the greatest strategic mind in the galaxy, and a rarity in that he was a none human in a position of power in the Empire "

    " It was fun to follow the main cast of characters as they continue their adventures after the Star Wars movies. Eventually, there got to be enough Star Wars books that it was too overwhelming to read them all, and I gave up, but this trilogy was the first I read and was definitely my favorite. "
