OK so Zahn on these boards and else where is pretty much known for the The Thrawn Trilogy which kick started the EU back in 1991 and still holds up as a good fun read set in the Stawars universe even to this day. What is not given so much coverage was his next set of books the Hand of Thrawn duology which came out in 1997 and 1998 and closed off the Bantam Run. So while the TTT are always mentioned these are not, so I ask the question, what do readers think of those 2 books, do they still stand up like the TTT or are they considered a poor showing. Myself they are his book version of RTJ, with a mix of both good and bad. The main story with Luke and Mara was great and getting them together seemed the right thing, but he also had his own 2nd Death Star moments mainly with Shada who was the 2nd Mara and (for a guy who was dead) lots and lots of Thrawn. So what do others think.
