Heir to the Empire: Star Wars- The Thrawn Trilogy, Vol. 1 – I thought it might be fun to read a ‘Star Wars’ novel- it wasn’t. I did some research, and this trilogy looked to be a good place to start- it wasn’t. I found all the characters to be interchangeable and the plot was flat- it was like a bad comic book. The story takes place five years after “Return of the Jedi.” Stop– this book is so dull and lifeless, I don’t want to spend any further time reviewing it!
