"It is believed that a Grand Admiral has returned to take control of the Imperial remnants. We believed that we had accounted for all of the Emperor's warlords, but what if we were wrong?"
―Voren Na'al[src]

SummaryEdit

The New Republic was victorious at the
battle of the Sluis Van shipyards, but it has by
no means won the war. Dissension and per-
sonal ambition threaten to tear the Republic
apart.

Princess Leia — pregnant with Jedi twins — risks
her life to bring a proud and lethal alien species into
alliance with the Republic, while Han Solo and Lando
Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside
the highest circles of the Republic Council.

But most dangerous of all is a new Dark Jedi, risen from the
ashes of a shrouded past, consumed by bitterness ... and thor-
oughly, utterly insane. Now he schemes to use his awesome
mastery of the Force to summon Luke Skywalker, allay his
misgivings, cunningly enthrall him, and ultimately corrupt him
to the Dark Side ...

Publisher's SummaryEdit

"I rule the Empire now. Not some long-dead Emperor..."

Grand Admiral Thrawn's plan to restore the Empire to absolute power proceeds with horrifying efficiency. Only the bravery and skill of Princess Leia, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker can stop him from delivering a killing stroke to the New Republic!

While Thrawn's schemes unfold, Luke Skywalker confronts the mad Dark Jedi, Joruus C'baoth, in a struggle for the fate of the Jedi Knights and the galaxy itself!

Return to the wonder and excitement of a far-off galaxy in this companion volume to Timothy Zahn's best-selling novel Dark Force Rising. This book includes complete information and game statistics on all of the characters, aliens, vehicles, droids, planets and starships from this gripping adventure.

"This is the calm before the storm..."

ContinuityEdit

The sourcebook claims that the planet orbited by the moon of Endor was destroyed, which was noted in the novelization of Return of the Jedi. The Essential Atlas later claimed this disappearance was an elaborate hoax, and the planet of Endor has since appeared in other media.

Like the Dark Force Rising novel, this sourcebook lists the Battle of Honoghr as taking place around 35 BBY. The Essential Guide to Alien Species later retconned this to 20 BBY
