In fairness I have not yet read his because I do not have the first half of this duology. The plotline is based on the possible survival of Thrawn a general of the evil empire, pursued by the lead characters of the original Star Wars sequence (Luke, Leia, Han Solo) with various complications. It is set in a time period between the original Star Wars sequence and the recent future version, but much closer to the original sequence. My understanding is that no attempt has been made to incorporate this section of "Star Wars" history into the official post-first-sequence section. However from dipping into this it seems to be competently done.

With the Caamas issue still raging on a civil war, the New Republic has no choice but to find a copy of the Caamas Document no matter the risk. The New Republic sends officials to bastion, pilots to Bothawui, a slicer to an Imperial station, and smugglers to another smuggler all in attempt of retrieving this one document. Bantam Spectra’s Vision of the Future is book two of the Hand of Thrawn duology by award winning Timothy Zahn, author of the historic Thrawn Trilogy. The book masterly plays out the plots and schemes from book one, skilfully reveals plot twists, and answers all unanswered questions from book one of the duology, Spectre of the Past, which definitely did not displease. Vision of the Future is also known to be the novel with the most pages currently out of any other star wars novel. ( )

Book description
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 Thrown. In his hands--alive or dead--rests the fate of the New Republic.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553578790, Mass Market Paperback)

Grand Admiral Thrawn, long believed dead, has returned. Civil war is imminent in the New Republic. And what--or who--is the Hand of Thrawn? Vision of the Future is the conclusion of the two-part Hand of Thrawn series, written by Timothy Zahn, Hugo Award-winning author of the original trilogy based on the Star Wars films. The book is read by Tony Award-nominee Anthony Heald, who uses his theatrical talents to perform everything from love scenes to fight scenes as the story unfolds. His range of voices--from the "distinctive, somewhat prissy" voice of C-3PO to the gruff cynicism of Han Solo--is complemented by selections from John Williams's score and sound effects from the Star Wars films. (Running time: 3 hours, 2 cassettes) --C.B. Delaney
