    A trilogy that evolved in a wise way. But it was so artistically done. HOW A TRILOGY SHOULD BE Maybe how a trilogy should be it?s that all three parts would be the same as good. I am sure nobody would mind about that. However, if perfection isn?t in the equation...

    Strictly speaking, the poster of the original Star Wars movie does not have too much in common with the last book of the trilogy except for the settings and main heroes, but my child self really loved it when I saw it first. I was waiting for a chance to use it and this looks like a go...

    This was a fun conclusion to the Thrawn Trilogy. It was of a similar quality to the previous two books in the series and satisfactorily wrapped up the main ongoing plot arcs. The ending produced a few shocks which was quite entertaining. I was happy with the way things concluded re...

    Same review for all three: I grew up on Lucas' film trilogy; it took on a certain mythological quality. Say what you will about Lucas: I won't apologize for this enjoyment. When the first horn blasts of that John Williams score strike, I wear that nerdy shame with all of its lightsaber...

    Really enjoyable and fitting closure to the Thrawn trilogy, and Mara Jade's dilemma. The audiobook performance really elevated the story-telling, which was otherwise fairly predictable. Luke and Leia both come across as being too nice and bland sometimes, which thankfully was tempered ...

    Rather then ending the Thrawn Trilogy with a whimper, Timothy Zahn saves the best for The Last Command! With Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine gone, the New Republic was supposed to usher in a golden age of peace. Instead, the galaxy finds itself being torn apart by the ravages of w...

    ?The Thrawn Trilogy? is the most common answer to the question ?Which Star Wars books should I start with?? After finishing this last book in the trilogy, I can understand why. Grand Admiral Thrawn is an outstanding and compelling nemesis. Overall it is a solid trilogy, with a ...

    I don't know what more I can say about these Star Wars books. They are so enjoyable, well the audios are anyway. This one didn't have as much action as previous ones I've read, but I was still completely into it. The narrator does a great job. His Leia voice could use some work, but ev...

    If you're thinking about picking up a Star Wars book, forget all those new ones on the shelf, and pick up this classic masterpiece. The Thrawn Trilogy of books (of which this is the first) are far and away the best Star Wars novels; perhaps because it was penned by a science fiction...

    Awesome ending to an awesome trilogy (and we finally get some great jedi vs. jedi action). This is a great series of books, but I will reiterate what I said in an earlier review: If you can get your hands on the Marc Thompson narrated audiobooks for this series I highly recommend i...

    Wow, what an ending... Definitely my favorite out of all three and the last 25% was so action packed! I didn't think there was enough room left at the end of the book for a good conclusion, but Zahn did it. The whole series definitely lives up as a great sequel trilogy to the original ...

    I can certainly see why so many fans insisted this trilogy should be cannon, and why there is a new cannon Thrawn book. He's a great character - it is fun to have a non-force character in the Star Wars that is so dominant just because of the way the thinks. I really enjoyed this tri...

    This review applies to all three of the Thrawn Trilogy novels It might not be entirely fair to these books that I first started reading them expecting them to be masterpieces (touted by more than a few people I know as the very best of Star Wars EU fiction), because to be quite hone...

    Usually it is the other way around : I like the first book of a series better than the last one, probably because it is all new and full of promise, worlds and people waiting to be discovered. With the Thrawn trilogy I already knew what I was dealing with before I even started, and it ...

    4.5 stars. The Thrawn Trilogy, of which this is the final book, set the standard for "non-canon" star wars books and is still among the best in that group. This is a great universe (i.e., star wars) written by an excellent author (i.e., Zahn). The result is a very good read. ...

    After taking way to long to read this book, here's my review of the final volume in Timothy Zahn's beloved Thrawn Trilogy! I started this book way back in March or so, but then I stopped and restarted. Not because I didn't like it, but because my life got way too busy and I didn't wa...

    3.5/5 - Full review at emileereads: http://emileereads.com/blog/2018/4/8/... My review for all 3 Thrawn books is the same; after reading them back to back they kinda blended together. The writing in each one was similar - nothing special with lots of dialogue while the characters qu...

    The best of a highly entertaining trilogy. What more can I say? If you dig Star Wars, don't miss out on these novels. Click here for my review of the first, Heir to the Empire, and my review of the second, Dark Force Rising. The Last Command in particular had a lot more epic spa...

    It's been too long for me to identify specific events in each of the three volumes, but I thought I'd post a general review of the trilogy. My favourite thing about the trilogy is Talon Karrde. While he's an opportunist and a bit of a scoundrel, he does have a sense of right and wrong...

    Executive Summary: A pretty good end to a pretty good series. Audio book: Once again another excellent job by Marc Thompson making this one a must listen in my opinion. Full Review In the third and final book of the series, Mr. Zahn does a pretty good job wrapping things up. M...

    Good, but not as good as I'd hoped. It concludes the series in a satisfying manner. Still, as I said before, this is fan fiction at its best. Interestingly, this book was obviously/apparently written before George Lucas worked out the exact identity of the Clone War clones. That sai...

    A trilogy that evolved in a wise way. But it was so artistically done. HOW A TRILOGY SHOULD BE Maybe how a trilogy should be it?s that all three parts would be the same as good. I am sure nobody would mind about that. However, if perfection isn?t in the equation...

    Strictly speaking, the poster of the original Star Wars movie does not have too much in common with the last book of the trilogy except for the settings and main heroes, but my child self really loved it when I saw it first. I was waiting for a chance to use it and this looks like a go...

    This was a fun conclusion to the Thrawn Trilogy. It was of a similar quality to the previous two books in the series and satisfactorily wrapped up the main ongoing plot arcs. The ending produced a few shocks which was quite entertaining. I was happy with the way things concluded re...

    Same review for all three: I grew up on Lucas' film trilogy; it took on a certain mythological quality. Say what you will about Lucas: I won't apologize for this enjoyment. When the first horn blasts of that John Williams score strike, I wear that nerdy shame with all of its lightsaber...

    Really enjoyable and fitting closure to the Thrawn trilogy, and Mara Jade's dilemma. The audiobook performance really elevated the story-telling, which was otherwise fairly predictable. Luke and Leia both come across as being too nice and bland sometimes, which thankfully was tempered ...

    Rather then ending the Thrawn Trilogy with a whimper, Timothy Zahn saves the best for The Last Command! With Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine gone, the New Republic was supposed to usher in a golden age of peace. Instead, the galaxy finds itself being torn apart by the ravages of w...

    ?The Thrawn Trilogy? is the most common answer to the question ?Which Star Wars books should I start with?? After finishing this last book in the trilogy, I can understand why. Grand Admiral Thrawn is an outstanding and compelling nemesis. Overall it is a solid trilogy, with a ...

    I don't know what more I can say about these Star Wars books. They are so enjoyable, well the audios are anyway. This one didn't have as much action as previous ones I've read, but I was still completely into it. The narrator does a great job. His Leia voice could use some work, but ev...

    If you're thinking about picking up a Star Wars book, forget all those new ones on the shelf, and pick up this classic masterpiece. The Thrawn Trilogy of books (of which this is the first) are far and away the best Star Wars novels; perhaps because it was penned by a science fiction...

    Awesome ending to an awesome trilogy (and we finally get some great jedi vs. jedi action). This is a great series of books, but I will reiterate what I said in an earlier review: If you can get your hands on the Marc Thompson narrated audiobooks for this series I highly recommend i...

    Wow, what an ending... Definitely my favorite out of all three and the last 25% was so action packed! I didn't think there was enough room left at the end of the book for a good conclusion, but Zahn did it. The whole series definitely lives up as a great sequel trilogy to the original ...

    I can certainly see why so many fans insisted this trilogy should be cannon, and why there is a new cannon Thrawn book. He's a great character - it is fun to have a non-force character in the Star Wars that is so dominant just because of the way the thinks. I really enjoyed this tri...

    This review applies to all three of the Thrawn Trilogy novels It might not be entirely fair to these books that I first started reading them expecting them to be masterpieces (touted by more than a few people I know as the very best of Star Wars EU fiction), because to be quite hone...

    Usually it is the other way around : I like the first book of a series better than the last one, probably because it is all new and full of promise, worlds and people waiting to be discovered. With the Thrawn trilogy I already knew what I was dealing with before I even started, and it ...

    4.5 stars. The Thrawn Trilogy, of which this is the final book, set the standard for "non-canon" star wars books and is still among the best in that group. This is a great universe (i.e., star wars) written by an excellent author (i.e., Zahn). The result is a very good read. ...

    After taking way to long to read this book, here's my review of the final volume in Timothy Zahn's beloved Thrawn Trilogy! I started this book way back in March or so, but then I stopped and restarted. Not because I didn't like it, but because my life got way too busy and I didn't wa...

    3.5/5 - Full review at emileereads: http://emileereads.com/blog/2018/4/8/... My review for all 3 Thrawn books is the same; after reading them back to back they kinda blended together. The writing in each one was similar - nothing special with lots of dialogue while the characters qu...

    "Your destiny is in your heands...in the end you're the one who makes the decisions" The final entry in the esteemed Thrawn Trilogy! The Katana fleet is Thrawn's and he has been using it quite liberally--along with a new breed of clones--to slow take back all the ground lost to the N...

    The best of a highly entertaining trilogy. What more can I say? If you dig Star Wars, don't miss out on these novels. Click here for my review of the first, Heir to the Empire, and my review of the second, Dark Force Rising. The Last Command in particular had a lot more epic spa...

    It's been too long for me to identify specific events in each of the three volumes, but I thought I'd post a general review of the trilogy. My favourite thing about the trilogy is Talon Karrde. While he's an opportunist and a bit of a scoundrel, he does have a sense of right and wrong...

    One of my favorite things about this series is how the books work together to tell one story (acting as initial conflict, rising tension, and climax, respectively), and yet each book has its own separate arc as well. As they go, the books escalate in tension and in the scale of the fin...

    Executive Summary: A pretty good end to a pretty good series. Audio book: Once again another excellent job by Marc Thompson making this one a must listen in my opinion. Full Review In the third and final book of the series, Mr. Zahn does a pretty good job wrapping things up. M...

    Good, but not as good as I'd hoped. It concludes the series in a satisfying manner. Still, as I said before, this is fan fiction at its best. Interestingly, this book was obviously/apparently written before George Lucas worked out the exact identity of the Clone War clones. That sai...

    Exatamente o tipo de história que eu esperava de um livro de Star Wars. Os personagens já conhecidos dão um baile no leitor ao longo das páginas; os que tiveram pouco destaque nos filmes crescem absurdamente no livro; e os novos personagens são impecáveis - o Thrawn é frio, calc...

    The Last Command wrapped up the Thrawn trilogy perfectly. i became highly invested in Mara Jade and Talon Karrde, both beautifully written characters. The book goes out with a bang and leaves none of my questions unanswered. ...

    I don't really know what else to tell you other than I really loved it. This is Star Wars the way it should. If you liked the original trilogy, I can't see you not liking this one. The final part brings the entire trilogy to a great close, it had a great ending though I wouldn't have m...

    Sigh...It's hard for me to properly review this series... I enjoy Star Wars, I grew up with it... but as a person who enjoys a very human-centric story, where decisions are made based on character, and not for the sake of progressing the story... it's hard for me to give these books a ...

    The Thrawn Trilogy (which I'll review as one unit) is, I can now agree, one of the few indispensable, and actually really worth reading productions of the EU. Zahn gets it all right, and does everything I personally want to see in the EU. First of all, he pulls off all the importan...

    The Thrawn trilogy is complete. This book continues with the style and pace of the first two installments, and brings the story to a relatively satisfying conclusion (with one caveat, which I'll touch on in a moment.) Zahn comes up with several very interesting last-minute plot twists ...

    The best of a highly entertaining trilogy. What more can I say? If you dig Star Wars, don't miss out on these novels. Click here for my review of the first, Heir to the Empire, and my review of the second, Dark Force Rising. The Last Command in particular had a lot more epic spa...

    It's been too long for me to identify specific events in each of the three volumes, but I thought I'd post a general review of the trilogy. My favourite thing about the trilogy is Talon Karrde. While he's an opportunist and a bit of a scoundrel, he does have a sense of right and wrong...

    One of my favorite things about this series is how the books work together to tell one story (acting as initial conflict, rising tension, and climax, respectively), and yet each book has its own separate arc as well. As they go, the books escalate in tension and in the scale of the fin...

    Executive Summary: A pretty good end to a pretty good series. Audio book: Once again another excellent job by Marc Thompson making this one a must listen in my opinion. Full Review In the third and final book of the series, Mr. Zahn does a pretty good job wrapping things up. M...

    The Last Command wrapped up the Thrawn trilogy perfectly. i became highly invested in Mara Jade and Talon Karrde, both beautifully written characters. The book goes out with a bang and leaves none of my questions unanswered. ...

    I don't really know what else to tell you other than I really loved it. This is Star Wars the way it should. If you liked the original trilogy, I can't see you not liking this one. The final part brings the entire trilogy to a great close, it had a great ending though I wouldn't have m...

    Sigh...It's hard for me to properly review this series... I enjoy Star Wars, I grew up with it... but as a person who enjoys a very human-centric story, where decisions are made based on character, and not for the sake of progressing the story... it's hard for me to give these books a ...

    The Thrawn Trilogy (which I'll review as one unit) is, I can now agree, one of the few indispensable, and actually really worth reading productions of the EU. Zahn gets it all right, and does everything I personally want to see in the EU. First of all, he pulls off all the importan...

    The Thrawn trilogy is complete. This book continues with the style and pace of the first two installments, and brings the story to a relatively satisfying conclusion (with one caveat, which I'll touch on in a moment.) Zahn comes up with several very interesting last-minute plot twists ...

    I am being lazy and am writing this review for all three books in the trilogy. It is also a very short review. In my obviously biased opinion: 1. Zahn has created the most compelling Star Wars 'villain' since the original Darth Vader in Grand Admiral Thrawn. This includes every o...

    A trilogy that evolved in a wise way. But it was so artistically done. HOW A TRILOGY SHOULD BE Maybe how a trilogy should be it?s that all three parts would be the same as good. I am sure nobody would mind about that. However, if perfection isn?t in the equation...

    Strictly speaking, the poster of the original Star Wars movie does not have too much in common with the last book of the trilogy except for the settings and main heroes, but my child self really loved it when I saw it first. I was waiting for a chance to use it and this looks like a go...

    This was a fun conclusion to the Thrawn Trilogy. It was of a similar quality to the previous two books in the series and satisfactorily wrapped up the main ongoing plot arcs. The ending produced a few shocks which was quite entertaining. I was happy with the way things concluded re...

    Same review for all three: I grew up on Lucas' film trilogy; it took on a certain mythological quality. Say what you will about Lucas: I won't apologize for this enjoyment. When the first horn blasts of that John Williams score strike, I wear that nerdy shame with all of its lightsaber...

    ?The Thrawn Trilogy? is the most common answer to the question ?Which Star Wars books should I start with?? After finishing this last book in the trilogy, I can understand why. Grand Admiral Thrawn is an outstanding and compelling nemesis. Overall it is a solid trilogy, with a ...

    I don't know what more I can say about these Star Wars books. They are so enjoyable, well the audios are anyway. This one didn't have as much action as previous ones I've read, but I was still completely into it. The narrator does a great job. His Leia voice could use some work, but ev...

    Awesome ending to an awesome trilogy (and we finally get some great jedi vs. jedi action). This is a great series of books, but I will reiterate what I said in an earlier review: If you can get your hands on the Marc Thompson narrated audiobooks for this series I highly recommend i...

    Wow, what an ending... Definitely my favorite out of all three and the last 25% was so action packed! I didn't think there was enough room left at the end of the book for a good conclusion, but Zahn did it. The whole series definitely lives up as a great sequel trilogy to the original ...

    I can certainly see why so many fans insisted this trilogy should be cannon, and why there is a new cannon Thrawn book. He's a great character - it is fun to have a non-force character in the Star Wars that is so dominant just because of the way the thinks. I really enjoyed this tri...

    A trilogy that evolved in a wise way. But it was so artistically done. HOW A TRILOGY SHOULD BE Maybe how a trilogy should be it?s that all three parts would be the same as good. I am sure nobody would mind about that. However, if perfection isn?t in the equation...

    Strictly speaking, the poster of the original Star Wars movie does not have too much in common with the last book of the trilogy except for the settings and main heroes, but my child self really loved it when I saw it first. I was waiting for a chance to use it and this looks like a go...

    This was a fun conclusion to the Thrawn Trilogy. It was of a similar quality to the previous two books in the series and satisfactorily wrapped up the main ongoing plot arcs. The ending produced a few shocks which was quite entertaining. I was happy with the way things concluded re...

    Same review for all three: I grew up on Lucas' film trilogy; it took on a certain mythological quality. Say what you will about Lucas: I won't apologize for this enjoyment. When the first horn blasts of that John Williams score strike, I wear that nerdy shame with all of its lightsaber...

    Really enjoyable and fitting closure to the Thrawn trilogy, and Mara Jade's dilemma. The audiobook performance really elevated the story-telling, which was otherwise fairly predictable. Luke and Leia both come across as being too nice and bland sometimes, which thankfully was tempered ...

    ?The Thrawn Trilogy? is the most common answer to the question ?Which Star Wars books should I start with?? After finishing this last book in the trilogy, I can understand why. Grand Admiral Thrawn is an outstanding and compelling nemesis. Overall it is a solid trilogy, with a ...

    I don't know what more I can say about these Star Wars books. They are so enjoyable, well the audios are anyway. This one didn't have as much action as previous ones I've read, but I was still completely into it. The narrator does a great job. His Leia voice could use some work, but ev...

    If you're thinking about picking up a Star Wars book, forget all those new ones on the shelf, and pick up this classic masterpiece. The Thrawn Trilogy of books (of which this is the first) are far and away the best Star Wars novels; perhaps because it was penned by a science fiction...

    Awesome ending to an awesome trilogy (and we finally get some great jedi vs. jedi action). This is a great series of books, but I will reiterate what I said in an earlier review: If you can get your hands on the Marc Thompson narrated audiobooks for this series I highly recommend i...

    Wow, what an ending... Definitely my favorite out of all three and the last 25% was so action packed! I didn't think there was enough room left at the end of the book for a good conclusion, but Zahn did it. The whole series definitely lives up as a great sequel trilogy to the original ...

    I can certainly see why so many fans insisted this trilogy should be cannon, and why there is a new cannon Thrawn book. He's a great character - it is fun to have a non-force character in the Star Wars that is so dominant just because of the way the thinks. I really enjoyed this tri...

    Usually it is the other way around : I like the first book of a series better than the last one, probably because it is all new and full of promise, worlds and people waiting to be discovered. With the Thrawn trilogy I already knew what I was dealing with before I even started, and it ...

    4.5 stars. The Thrawn Trilogy, of which this is the final book, set the standard for "non-canon" star wars books and is still among the best in that group. This is a great universe (i.e., star wars) written by an excellent author (i.e., Zahn). The result is a very good read. ...

    After taking way to long to read this book, here's my review of the final volume in Timothy Zahn's beloved Thrawn Trilogy! I started this book way back in March or so, but then I stopped and restarted. Not because I didn't like it, but because my life got way too busy and I didn't wa...

    3.5/5 - Full review at emileereads: http://emileereads.com/blog/2018/4/8/... My review for all 3 Thrawn books is the same; after reading them back to back they kinda blended together. The writing in each one was similar - nothing special with lots of dialogue while the characters qu...

    The best of a highly entertaining trilogy. What more can I say? If you dig Star Wars, don't miss out on these novels. Click here for my review of the first, Heir to the Empire, and my review of the second, Dark Force Rising. The Last Command in particular had a lot more epic spa...

    It's been too long for me to identify specific events in each of the three volumes, but I thought I'd post a general review of the trilogy. My favourite thing about the trilogy is Talon Karrde. While he's an opportunist and a bit of a scoundrel, he does have a sense of right and wrong...

    One of my favorite things about this series is how the books work together to tell one story (acting as initial conflict, rising tension, and climax, respectively), and yet each book has its own separate arc as well. As they go, the books escalate in tension and in the scale of the fin...

    Executive Summary: A pretty good end to a pretty good series. Audio book: Once again another excellent job by Marc Thompson making this one a must listen in my opinion. Full Review In the third and final book of the series, Mr. Zahn does a pretty good job wrapping things up. M...

    Good, but not as good as I'd hoped. It concludes the series in a satisfying manner. Still, as I said before, this is fan fiction at its best. Interestingly, this book was obviously/apparently written before George Lucas worked out the exact identity of the Clone War clones. That sai...

    Exatamente o tipo de história que eu esperava de um livro de Star Wars. Os personagens já conhecidos dão um baile no leitor ao longo das páginas; os que tiveram pouco destaque nos filmes crescem absurdamente no livro; e os novos personagens são impecáveis - o Thrawn é frio, calc...
