As Thrawn mounts his final siege, Han and Chewbacca struggle to form a coalition of smugglers for a last-ditch attack against the empire, while Leia holds the Alliance together and prepares for the birth of her Jedi twins.
To complicate matters, Thrawn's ally, the insane Joruus C'baoth, is a dark Jedi master trying to turn Luke to the dark side and to possess Leia's children, raising them as the seed to a new Jedi army.
The ThrawnTrilogy, also known as The Thrawn Omnibus, the Zahn Trilogy, the Empire Trilogy, The Three-Book Cycle, and the Star Wars cycle consists of three novels: Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising and The Last Command.
The trilogy follows the campaigns of Imperial Grand Admiral Thrawn, from the Battle of Obroa-skai to the Battle of Bilbringi.
Some fans look at the trilogy as the main continuation of the Original Trilogy, and thus the closest replacement for the long-promised, but never produced, sequel trilogy of films.
