Now reissued with a fresh new package, the New York Times bestselling Thrawn Trilogy continues in book 2--Star Wars: Dark Force Rising. This classic Star Wars Legends novel continues the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi as they fight the Empire's new commander: Grand Admiral Thrawn.
The dying Empire's most cunning and ruthless warlord--Grand Admiral Thrawn--has taken command of the remnants of the Imperial fleet and launched a massive campaign aimed at the New Republic's destruction. Meanwhile, Han Solo and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of the treason inside the highest Republic Council--only to discover instead a ghostly fleet of warships that could bring doom to their friends and victory to their enemies. Yet most dangerous of all is a new Dark Jedi, risen from the ashes of a shrouded past, consumed by bitterness, and scheming to corrupt Luke Skywalker to the dark side.
