Heir to the Empire begins five years after Return of the Jedi. The Rebel Alliance has destroyed the Death Star, defeated Darth Vader and the Emperor, and driven the remnants of the old Imperial Starfleet back into a quarter of the territory it once controlled. Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and have shouldered heavy burdens in the government of the new Republic, and Luke Skywalker is the first in a hoped-for new line of Jedi Knights.

But thousands of light-years away, where a few skirmishes are still taking place, the last of the Emperor's warlords have taken command of the remains of the Imperial fleet - and have made two vital discoveries that could destroy the fragile new Republic. The tale that emerges is a towering epic of action, invention, mystery, and spectacle on a galactic scale: in short, a story that is worthy of the name Star Wars. Download and start listening now!

    " This was the first starwars book I ever read and I loved this book. I think out of all the starwars books that I have read, The Thrawn Trilogy, is perhaps some of the best books. I think each both actually gets better than the last and I highly recommend these books. "

    " I read this while in college, so I'm unsure whether I liked this book because it continued the Star Wars saga (long before the prequels nearly killed my love for Star Wars), or if it is actually good. I will leave my rating as a 3 until I read it again (if ever). "

    " It was good read. I think Zahn did a really good job with the characters; they seemed like the characters from the movies. I'm excited to read the next book. "
