Andrew asked:

As someone who loved the Sequel Trilogy, would it be better to read this or Heir to the Empire?

Ekeen They're two different things. This takes place about 5-10 years before A New Hope and follows thrawn's rise to power in the Empire's navy. Heir to the Empire is a non-canon story primarily following Luke/Han/Leia five years after ROTJ with Thrawn as a major villain. So it doesn't really matter what order you read it in.
