Synopsis

Hugo Award-winning author Timothy Zahn brings his epic two-volume series The Hand of Thrawn to an explosive conclusion with a discovery that rocks the New Republic to its foundations--and threatens to resurrect the Empire.

The Empire's master plan is under way. The New Republic is on the verge of civil war and the rumor that the legendary Admiral Thrawn has returned from the dead is rallying the Imperial forces. Now Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and their allies face the challenge of their lives. They must infiltrate a hidden fortress filled with Imperial fanatics, rendezvous with a double-dealing Imperial commander, and journey into enemy territory to learn the identity of those responsible for an act of unthinkable genocide. But most important of all is the truth about Thrawn. In his hands--alive or dead--rests the fate of the New Republic.

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.
