The review of this Book prepared by Justin Murtagh

Vision of the Future concludes the two book sequel to Zahn's Grand Admiral Thrawn trilogy. It details the last attempts of the Empire to derail the New Republic, as Moff Disra gets a con man to pretend he's Grand Admiral Thrawn and stir up ethnic rivalries in the New Republic. Luke & co., meanwhile, has to find a way to keep the Republic together. Oh, and Luke gets some sex with Mara.
