Star Wars: Heir to Empire
by Timothy Zahn
Del Rey, $30.00, 468pp
Release Date: September 6, 2011

This is the tenth Star Wars novel by Timothy Zahn, and the twentieth anniversary edition which includes a novella starring Admiral Thrawn.

Five years after the destruction of the Death Star, the Galaxy is struggling to rebuild. Han and Leia are expecting twins, and Luke has become the first of a line of new Jedi knights; but many light years away, the last of the Empire's Warlords, Grand Admiral Thrawn, has taken over the empire's fleet and readied it for war with two discoveries that may be the keys to destroy the New Republic . The epic confrontation is full of action, mystery and creative possibilities.....if the Republic survives.

Zahn’s Star Wars books are the best of the expanded Star Wars universe. His ten novels outside the Star wars universe prove a sci-fi Master has written both. Like Star Wars? Like action sci-fi? Time to use the plastic and enjoy. ~~ Pam Allan
