The embattled Republic reels from the attacks of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who has marshaled the remnants of the Imperial forces and driven the Rebels back with an abominable technology recovered from the Emperor’s secret fortress: clone soldiers. As Thrawn mounts his final siege, Han Solo and Chewbacca struggle to form a coalition of smugglers for a last-ditch attack, while Princess Leia holds the Alliance together and prepares for the birth of her Jedi twins.
The Republic has one last hope—sending a small force into the very stronghold that houses Thrawn’s terrible cloning machines. There a final danger awaits, as the Dark Jedi C’baoth directs the battle against the Rebels and builds his strength to finish what he already started: the destruction of Luke Skywalker.

Abridged versus Unabridged
I can not find where it shows this audiobook as "abridged" but at 3+ hours in length it obviously is. The full unabridged audiobook is almost 16 hours long. I really wish Itunes would prominently display which version you are buying. I really don't want an audiobook that is missing 75% of the material.
The Thrawn Trilogy and specifically this last one is the best audio production, sound effects, and far beyond the writing of any of the others I have read or listened to. These three books are excellent fiction. For years I have waited for them to be eclipsed or equaled by another Star Wars author. This writer and this Trawn Trilogy is the same caliber as the original Star Wars, Episode IV and Star Wars: Epire Strikes Back, Episode V. I should say something about the reader, Anthony Danials, the actor that played C3pO. He is the best reader for any Star Trek audio I have listened to. Anthony Danials has a marvalous talent for storytelling and helps this one come alive! In Conclusion, buy this audio series, all three are supurb, astounding, extraordinary! You will not be disappointed.
I've seen on other sites that there is an unabridged version. Why is it not available? I would happily buy it
