"Wow! Read this Original Thrawn Trilogy!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is book 2 of the Original Thrawn trilogy. This was published before Disney bought Star Wars and honestly, this trilogy should have been Episode 7, 8 and 9. It's amazing!

The story continues as Thrawn, a Grand Admiral unknown to the New Republic, prepares his attack against the enemies of the Empire. Both the New Republic and the Empire are in need of ships. Read as both sides learn about “The Dark Force”. An enormous fleet of warships lost before the Clone Wars.

In this book you'll learn more about the past. For characters and events that have occurred. Luke Skywalker finds a old lost Jedi. Leia is continued to be hunted by the Empire. Mara Jade continues her grudge against Luke. Read, as these events and characters come together for a race to find “The Dark Force”!..

…And for a twist.

In this essential Star Wars Legends novel, the sequel to Heir to the Empire, Grand Admiral Thrawn's sinister plan threatens to spell doom for the fledgling New Republic and its most iconic heroes. 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. Meanwhile, Han Solo and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside the highest Republic 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.
