Hugo Award-winning author Timothy Zahn made his triumphant return to the Star Wars universe in this first of an epic two-volume series in which the New Republic must face its most dangerous enemy yet: a dead Imperial warlord.

The forces of the Empire stand at the brink of total collapse. But they have saved their most heinous plan for last. First a plot is hatched that could destroy the New Republic in a bloodbath of genocide and civil war. Then comes the shocking news that Grand Admiral Thrawn, the most cunning and ruthless warlord in history, has apparently returned from the dead to lead the Empire to a long-prophesied victory. Facing incredible odds, Han and Leia begin a desperate race against time to prevent the New Republic from unraveling in the face of two inexplicable threats: one from within and one from without. Meanwhile, Luke teams up with Mara Jade, using the Force to track down a mysterious pirate ship with a crew of clones.

Yet perhaps most dangerous of all are those who lurk in the shadows, orchestrating a dark plan that will turn the New Republic and the Empire into their playthings.

    " I almost didn't read this because the potential for jumping the shark was massive. But I'm so, so glad that I did. I even got to meet the author a few years ago (I might have swooned). He was super nice, & autographed it to me & The Other Boy, who at the time was almost two years old. "

    " So I got on a kick and read al out every Star Wars novel. The Zahn books were my favorites. They're not Alderan-shattering, but they're fun. That's enough for me. "

    " This trilogy is as good as the original movies. This is as good as it gets for Star Wars books. "
