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. Meanwhile, Han Solo and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside the highest Republic 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.

The Thrawn trilogy is in a class of its own when it comes to the expanded Star Wars universe. When I read these books in the 90s, I literally could not put them down. To this day, like Lord of the Rings, I reread the Thrawn Trilogy every few years.
The audiobook version is brilliant; the reader acts out all the characters with incredible skill, and the music and sound effects add colour to the performance making you feel like you're listening to a movie.
This definitely is one of those books that If I was stuck on a desert island, I'd want to have with me…. on my iPhone (hopefully with access to a solar panel and 3G :)
