Synopsis

It’s five years after the Rebel Alliance destroyed the Death Star, defeated Darth Vader and the Emperor, and drove the remnants of the old Imperial Starfleet to a distant corner of the galaxy. Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting Jedi twins. And Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of Jedi Knights.
 
But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords, Grand Admiral Thrawn, has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic. For this dark warrior has made two vital discoveries that could destroy everything the courageous men and women of the Rebel Alliance fought so hard to build.

About the Author

It is not often that you hear of someone going through several years of postgraduate education, who ends up turning a hobby into their life's, paying, productive work. Such is the unusual story of American author, Timothy Zahn, who was born in 1951, grew up in Lombard, IL and graduated with a B.S. Degree in physics from Michigan State University. He then proceeded to the University of IL where he received his M.S. Degree in 1975. After beginning his doctorate in physics, his advisor passed away, and he never did complete the studies.

Zahn had started writing as a hobby, so when his plans changed, he took his writing of science fiction to a higher level. Zahn is best known for his Thrawn Star Wars series of novels. He has also had other novels of fantasy and science fiction. There are also many works that he has penned in short story fiction.

Zahn and his wife Anna live in Bandon, Oregon and have one son, Corwin Zahn.
