In this first book of the fourth Thrawn trilogy in the Star Wars Legends universe, narrator Marc Thompson introduces the listener to the brilliant and mysterious young recruit Thrawn. In this prequel he is not yet the famed and feared Grand Admiral who fought for the Empire against Luke Skywalker, but a new cadet taking on his first assignment on the edge of known space. Thompson excels at character voices; he gives young Thrawn a driven monotone, the alien leader a Darth Vader growl, and, best of all, Che'ri, an innocent voice that reflects the character's coming of age. The plethora of intriguing premises and Star Wars references will keep any rabid fan happy. B.P. 2021 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
