Timothy Zahn is the master of the Star Wars novel. His trilogy (Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command) did almost as much as the movie trilogy's re-release to create new interest in Luke, Leia, and Han Solo. Specter of the Past is the first of a new series, The Hand of Thrawn. Princess Leia is trying desperately to hold the loose coalition of interests known as the New Republic together long enough to see the evil Empire finally vanquished. But in a stunning setback, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker discover that the pirate ships raiding New Republic transports are staffed with clones under the command of someone who claims to be Grand Admiral Thrawn, the Empire's most powerful warlord, believed dead for 10 years. Thrawn's plan for destroying the fragile New Republic seems well on the way to completion--unless Han, Leia, and Luke can stop it.From the Publisher:
Praise for the Star Wars(r) novels by Timothy Zahn:
Specter of the Past:
"Unusually sophisticated...Longtime fans should get considerable pleasure from this addition to the saga."
Heir to the Empire:
"Moves with a speed-of-light pace that captures the spirit of the movie trilogy so well, you can almost hear John Williams's soundtrack."
--The Providence Sunday Journal
"A splendidly exciting novel...read and enjoy. The magic is back."
"Chock full of all the good stuff you've come to expect from a battle of good against evil."
--Daily News, New York
Dark Force Rising:
"Continues [Zahn's] remarkable extrapolation from George Lucas's trilogy."
"Zahn has perfectly captured the pace and flavor of the Star Wars movies. This is space opera at its best."
--The Sunday Oklahoman
The Last Command:
"Filled with characteristic Star Wars technology and cosmic battles...the detail and plot development far exceed what are possible in a two-hour movie."
--The Indianapolis Star
