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. With the aid of unimaginable weapons long hidden away by the Emperor on a backwater planet, Thrawn plans to turn the tide of battle, overwhelm the New Republic, and impose his iron rule throughout the galaxy. Meanwhile, Han and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside the highest Republican 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.

I've come to realize that Zahn doesn't d...

3.0 Dark Force Rising (Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 2)
The first half of this book was a bit of a slog, but it got much better (action-wise) near the end. There are far too many references to the original Star Wars trilogy planted throughout to remind the reader again and again that he/she is reading a Star Wars book.
