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.
Timothy Zahn introduces a destroyed Empire and fragile New Republic, strange creatures, and compelling heroes and villains. The originality and creativity in the series is deep, far better than the sorry episode 1 and 2 movies.
Grand Admiral Thrawn is an ingenious, calculating and efficient villain, someone the New Republic should fear. The typical assortment of characters ranging from Luke Skywalker to Wedge Antilles fills the book with essential components to the tale. While Star Wars hasn't been overly political, politics play a part in the developments and brings more depth to an otherwise action oriented plot.
I highly recommend this series above all others to any fan of the Star Wars universe.
