'I have sensed a disturbance in the Force.' Ominous words under any circumstances, but all the more so when uttered by Emperor Palpatine. On Batuu, at the edges of the Unknown Regions, a threat to the Empire is taking root - its existence little more than a glimmer, its consequences as yet unknowable. But it is troubling enough to the Imperial leader to warrant investigation by his most powerful agents: ruthless enforcer Lord Darth Vader and brilliant strategist Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Really enjoyed the second book of this trilogy. A lot shorter than Thrawn but no less enjoyable. Timothy and Marc really capture Vader's menace, coldness and ruthlessness. Only one complaint from me, why cant we have a female to play the female roles. Marc does a great Thrawn, Vader, Alien, stormtrooper etc but I cringe at his female voices.
