This review is from: Specter of the Past (Star Wars: The Hand of Thrawn #1) (Mass Market Paperback)
The New Republic is desperately trying to hold itself together. The Empire has been diminished to little more than an occasional annoyance. As peace settles in, old rivalries that were banished in the hope of creating a united front against the Empire are resurfacing. These old squabbles threaten to tear apart the fragile New Republic.
Leia and Han are struggling to hold their family and the Republic together before they are split at the seams. Now a new challenge surfaces. Grand Admiral Thrawn has resurfaced, making himself known to Lando, and requesting a message be taken to the New Republic. In addition, Luke has discovered the Empire has been using clones again. How did Thrawn escape death? Where is the Empire getting these new clones? Will the Republic be torn apart by petty rivalries?
