When I was 11, I had just finished watching Return of the Jedi. I had a Star Wars fix. I went to a bookstore with my family and picked out a book. I wanted something that would continue the star wars story. Instead I picked up Isaac Asimov's Foundation Trilogy. This books series, Thrawn Trilogy, was the book I was supposed to pick up. Isaac Asimov led me to my lifelong science fiction obsession. 20 years later, I finally read the book I was looking for.

This book picks up five years after the Battle of Endor (Return of the Jedi) Zahn keeps true to the characters. It is difficult to interact in a star wars universe when the characters have been fleshed out by actors in a movie. Some of the bad star wars books fail to capture the spirit. This one captures it absolutely. The same adventure is there. I would recommend it for anyone just getting into the star wars books.
