Publisher's summary[]

The tyranny has ended. But what will take its place? It is now five years after Return of the Jedi. Leia and Han are married and have shouldered heavy burdens in the government of the New Republic. And Luke Skywalker is the first in a hoped-for new 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 remains of the Imperial fleet. Thrawn has made two vital discoveries that could destroy the Rebel Alliance's New Republic. The tale that emerges is a towering epic of action, invention, mystery, and a spectacle of galactic scale—in short, a story that is worthy of the name Star Wars.[1]

Heir to the Empire
Five years after the destruction
of the second Death Star, the
Rebel Alliance has driven the
remnants of the old Imperial
Starfleet to a distant corner of the
galaxy. The Alliance has established
its fledgling government, the New
Republic, in the old Imperial Palace on
the planet Coruscant. 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 has taken
command of the shattered Imperial fleet,
readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile
heart of the New Republic.
