Hugo Award-winning author Timothy Zahn brings his epic two-volume series The Hand of Thrawn to an explosive conclusion with a discovery that rocks the New Republic to its foundations--and threatens to resurrect the Empire.

The Empire's master plan is under way. The New Republic is on the verge of civil war and the rumor that the legendary Admiral Thrawn has returned from the dead is rallying the Imperial forces. Now Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and their allies face the challenge of their lives. They must infiltrate a hidden fortress filled with Imperial fanatics, rendezvous with a double-dealing Imperial commander, and journey into enemy territory to learn the identity of those responsible for an act of unthinkable genocide. But most important of all is the truth about Thrawn. In his hands--alive or dead--rests the fate of the New Republic.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

THRAWN/(FLIM): "Don't you wish to see your wife and children again?"
HAN: "Yeah, that's kind of the point, isn't it?"

MARA: "You said it was morning?"
LUKE: "Well, afternoon, actually. But Han once told me that anytime you woke up was technically morning."

LEIA: "If I'd realized at the beginning how much all of this was going to cost...I don't know."
HAN: "I do. You'd have died on Alderaan, Palpatine would still be running the Empire, and I'd still be shipping spice for slimetails like Jabba. All that by itself makes it worth it."

"...Fighting Thrawn is like fighting a shadow, Elegos. He's never where you think he is, doing what you expect him to do. Everything he does is circles within circles within circles." -Leia

The action, suspense, drama, that was built up in Specter Of The Past was certainly here, but it was not what I was expecting it to be like. I found Vision Of The Future oddly depressing, and that could be because I thought it was going to be completely different than how it actually ended or maybe because this marked the end to a great cycle of books. Either one of those.
Vision Of The future really does end the Bantam Spectra era with basically the characters it started with and it evens hints as to what the next nineteen books are going to be about.
I think that Vision of The Future, and maybe The Hand Of Thrawn Duology in general, tries to get across to readers that while we should never forget the past, we can't keep dwelling on it because the future holds some of the greatest joys, fears, trials, and excitements, that we have yet to experience.

I liked the development of the relationships in this duology. Timothy Zahn started the new series of SW novels with the Thrawn triology, and in The Hand of Thrawn duology he makes some interesting statements of how the characters have developed in the meantime.
