あらすじ・解説

Here is a special edition 20th anniversary release of the number-one New York Times best-selling novel that reignited the entire Star Wars publishing phenomenon - unabridged for the first time. The biggest event in the history of Star Wars books, Heir to the Empire follows the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia after they led the Rebel Alliance to victory in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.

Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights.

But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords - the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic. For this dark warrior has made two vital discoveries that could destroy everything the courageous men and women of the Rebel Alliance fought so hard to create.

The explosive confrontation that results is a towering epic of action, invention, mystery, and spectacle on a galactic scale - in short, a story worthy of the name Star Wars.

The Real Sequel Trilogy-Disney Missed BIG TIME

This is probably one of the best Star Wars books out there and is the first book in a three part story. I am currently working on the second book, I am about halfway through and it is just as good as this. This would have been amazing to see on the big screen and adapted into a live action trilogy. This is the Star Wars we deserved to see on the big screen following Return of The Jedi. Lucas himself even signed off on these stories to be cannon. Then Disney came in, well rather Kathleen Kennedy came in, and ruined it. This is pure Star Wars, no SJWs, no one trying make a point. It was a great story with great characters that I cared about. These Disney movies do offer any of that. I really could care less how Rey and all the other goons fit into the Star Wars universe. The Start Wars fan base deserved to see Thrawn on the big screen, it would have been magical....

Thank you for this AMAZING production.

What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition) the most enjoyable?

It being a fully produced (soundtrack, effects and all) unabridged version.

What did you like best about this story?

A continuation of the saga

What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

Overall good, only nitpick is that Han could have sounded a little more like Harrison. but overall it was great!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

We need to get the other two books re done like this.

It's about time!

Marc Thompson is a fantastic narrator. I've listened to many of his books, and loved every one. I encourage everyone to buy this book immediately. We need to show that if they release unabridged star wars audio, then we'll buy it! It appears they've stopped making the horrible abridged releases already. However, I really hope this starts a new trend of releasing old star wars books unabridged. Hopefully it's not a one time thing.

As for the book, it's also fantastic. There are plenty of reviews of the material in the book on Amazon. Buy it. You'll love it.

Better than Disney

If only the Disney story group knew something about storytelling, they would have used the EU stories to inspire their movies post ROTJ. The performance was on point as always with Marc Thompson and the production value of the audiobook is top notch. I can't recommend this book any more because of the quality of the story and the honoring of the characters that made Star Wars great from the beginning. Get this book/series, you won't be disappointed.

Perfect

This book is one of the best Star Wars books that I have ever read and when it became available on audible I jumped at the chance to experience this riveting story again. The audio version of this book is excellent. Marc Thompson portrays every character very well in distinct voices. This rendition also contains music and sound effects. At first I found the sound effects very jarring and would take me out of the story. Fortunately I got used to these sound effects and instead of detracting from the story they reinforced the performance. After I listened to Heir to the Empire I was excited to continue listening. I looked up when Dark Force Rising would be released in anniversary edition, and discovered that it will only be released if Heir to the Empire preforms well enough. I hope that Marc Thompson narrates that version if it comes out or if it doesn't then he narrates the the complete trilogy anyway.

Finally! Unabridged after 20 years!

Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition) to be better than the print version?

Heir to the Empire was the very first book that ignited my passion for literature as a teenager. Imagine my disappointment when this wonderful book could only be found as an abridgment in audio format. Now, with the 20th anniversary, the fans are rewarded by an unabridged version of Heir to the Empire. I would highly recommend to anyone who has ever loved the Star Wars series, that they read/listen to this story. Fans of the SW saga will be delighted by the same level of action and intrigue Timothy Zahn placed into this book as George Lucas put into the series. Whether you are a life-long SW fan or new to the series, you will not be disappointed by this series. Hopefully, the fans will not have to wait too long for the rest of the Thrawn trilogy to be available in an unabridged format.

What did you like best about this story?

The interaction between the original characters was wonderful and true to the movies. The new characters were also marvelously developed and wonderfully complex. This book does indeed read like the 7th episode in the SW saga.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

They may have defeated the Emperor and Darth Vader, but the Empire may not be as defeated as they think.

So Good Feel Guilty I Did Not Read It

The only Star Wars book I have read was, " Shadows Of The Empire." With my job, using Audible is a perfect way for me to get caught up while I work. It is nice to hear sound effects and voice over, sort of feeling like I am listening to the audio of a movie. I am excited to start the next in the series, " Dark Force Rising." I am incredibly intrigued to see where the storyline leads as well as the new version that Timothy Zhan will be writing as well as how Disney will tie all of this new extended universe together. If you are at all of a Star Wars and or Star Trek fan I can with full confidence already recommend this trilogy. If you are like me and have a hard time trying to find time to sit and read and are constantly on the move a.k.a. walking and public transportation, as well as a busy work day in your cubicle but have access to headphones,, I personally believe this is a must buy, or perfect for your first free download already convinced me to purchased the next.

Finally!!!!!!!


This is a great addition! Like a previous reviewer mentioned we need more Star Wars books that are unabridged and Marc Thompson as the narrator. This is the book that started it all for the expanded universe and is a must read for any Star Wars fan. I just hope they continue the series with the following books. Truly a great production with sounds and Thompson at the helm.

Well written, well read, great story. Everything the new Disney trilogy is not. This is proper star wars. Not the Mary sue sjw virtue signaling infested tripe that is Disney Star wars. Well worth a listen.

A classic

I am more of a fan of canon star wars due to the more cleaner lore presented and even this book from legends seemed to struggle to match the prequals lore but if you ignore all that and see this as the 90s continuation of the orginal films it works very well.

with the audiobook the modern sounds and up to date reading from mark Thomas breathes new life and makes the book timeless.

A classic done well.

Heir to the Empire is the book that kicked off the expanded universe back when it released many, many years ago. This classic introduces the character of Thrawn who has been a recurring antagonist both in the legends and new Disney canon (as well as a crowd favourite amongst star wars fans). This, and the Thrawn trilogy as a whole, follows his attempts to rebuild the crumbling empire following the death of the emperor and the new Republic struggling under his efforts along with the complexities of transitioning from a rebellion into a democratic government.

overall, the story is told superbly, and the production quality does credit to the story itself. it, along with most other starwars audiobooks, are more audiodramas than audiobooks as they include a soundtrack and sound effects, and different voice actors for the characters (or at least different voices enough so you can tell the difference between them). I often find with most audiobooks when they attempt this it often comes off as rather cheap and the voices irksome, but here the producers really went the extra step to deliver a complete and enjoyable package.

the only downside, and why I've given this an overall of 4 rather than 5 stars is that for some reason beyond my comprehension, Audible doesn't have all three books in the original Thrawn trilogy. The third book, the last command, is an incredibly abridged and poorly produced book littered with mispronunciations and lack of detail throughout. It's a real letdown to get through the first two books only to realise you are going to have to hunt to find the unabridged (which does exist) third book elsewhere.

A well deserved reputation.

Gilad Pellaeon's introspection in chapter sets the tone, and it some of the best writing within the whole franchise. And he is a seriously underappreciated character in his own right, even if he is Dr Watson.

Thrawn is Sherlock Holmes crossed with Erwin Rommel, and is a brilliant synthesis for a villain. He is not maniacally evil, he has no Force powers, no planet-killing super weapon, and he is in a position of weakness compared to the New Republic.

He has to rely on his own experience, his intellect, his skills and his calculations to stand a chance, let alone be victorious.

This book starts the Quintology that rivals the original despecialized trilogy and knights of the old republic as the heart of Star Wars.

Excellent Production

This is a production work, meaning you get sound effects like laser fire, various droid beeps, space ship noises etc.
There is one narrator, and though his voice doesn't match the original cast actors, he performs brilliantly, with each character having an unique and recognizable voice.
The story is my favorite of the expanded universe, introducing Grand Admiral Thrawn and Mara Jade among other greats.

Was curious about Thrawn and was not disappointed

This is the first Star Wars novel I've managed to finish since I was either 9 or 10 years old and reading about 12-year old Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Jedi Apprentice series published by Scholastic. I am happy to say that this (audio)book is a credit to the franchise. It's marvellous!

My interest in Star Wars has been renewed again following the release of the new movies The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. The character name "Mitth'raw'nuruodo" kept catching my eye in my internet searches and his clear popularity made me curious. I had to read about him; I wanted to know who Thrawn was and this title is the story that started it all. I haven't been disappointed. Grand Admiral Thrawn is now a favourite character of mine!

I've been delighted at the level of effort given to this audiobook's performance. Marc Thompson really can pull off Han Solo's voice in particular though he was great at Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian too. I adored all of the background sound effects, especially R2-D2's cute beeping and the humming lightsaber sounds. Really, I'm not exactly new to audiobooks but I believe this is the first one where I've had the novel pleasure of feeling like I was also listening to a movie whilst simultaneously reading a book. It was so much fun!

The only thing I didn't enjoy was the music. I'm half-deaf though I don't always have an issue with hearing if I'm listening to something through headphones. The music got too loud at times and I occasionally (though thankfully not too often) had to strain to hear Marc Thompson speaking. Sound effects really complimented the narrative but the music just got in the way. I insist that this is my only criticism though. Everything else was fantastic!

Will I read this book again? Very likely, yes. Will I listen to the second title in the Thrawn trilogy? Oh my gosh, I absolutely will. Do I think anyone thinking about purchasing this title should buy it right now? Yes, definitely. Read this in Emperor Palpatine's voice: "Do it!"

Thoroughly Enjoyable

Always loved this story and was looking to read it again, so figured I'd give the audio book a go. Was plesantly surprised by the great performance of Marc Thompson, but on top of that the added music snippets and sound effects made this a truly fantastic and enjoyable experience that really feed on nostalgia from the original Star Wars trilogy. If you are a fan of Star Wars especially of the EU and this trilogy would absolutely recommend this audio book.
