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.

It takes a little while for this book to get going, but once it does pick up, you are left wanting to read the next book in the trilogy. There are a few more bad words in this book than there was in Heir To the Empire but not enough as to distract you from the overall story. The continuity errors start to show up and you are sometimes left a little confused, especially when the characters discover a clone army. Weren't the Storm Troopers already clones? Mara is, of course annoying and irritating as always, and even Thrawn gets a little irritating. C'Baoth is totally insane and his fight with Luke toward the end makes you want to sit on the edge of your seat. The best part of this book is probably when Thrawn tells Mara that she was not the Emperor's only hand. Her reaction to that is pretty great.
