NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In this definitive novel, readers will follow Thrawn’s rise to power—uncovering the events that created one of the most iconic villains in Star Wars history.

One of the most cunning and ruthless warriors in the history of the Galactic Empire, Grand Admiral Thrawn is also one of the most captivating characters in the Star Wars universe, from his introduction in bestselling author Timothy Zahn’s classic Heir to the Empire through his continuing adventures in Dark Force Rising, The Last Command, and beyond. But Thrawn’s origins and the story of his rise in the Imperial ranks have remained mysterious. Now, in Star Wars: Thrawn, Timothy Zahn chronicles the fateful events that launched the blue-skinned, red-eyed master of military strategy and lethal warfare into the highest realms of power—and infamy.

    The Farseer trilogy is a masterpiece. I think it had a worthy ending. I do suggest that you don't expect Fitz to be a hero in the traditional way.

    Thrawn! A brilliant and inspired character. Timothy Zahn clearly tapped into the mojo, allowing the muse to move his fingers as he typed. When I was first introduced to him in Heir to the Empire in 1991 I was blown away. Marc Thompson is an amazing perforner! He could make the tax code interesting. I kept forgetting there was not a cast performing...just one talented man! If you haven’t already, get the first 3 books. The books that set cannon.

    Timothy Zahn does it again! Cannot wait for the next Thrawn novel. I have been a fan of Zahn since I read “Choices of One”, before the de-canonization of the Expanded Universe.

    Very good audio book. Great cast cast of characters and lots of audio effects.

  • Ryan C

    Great insight into Thrawn. Would love to see a movie that explores his role more.

  • Isaiah D

    Awesome book. Good voices and narration. Always been a fan of the expanded universe and was worried the new canon would be terrible, but was pleasantly surprised.

  • Darren B

    I am a Timothy Zahn fan. I read the Last Command series when it first came out, so when I saw "Thrawn" I was excited. The book was well written and the images it conjured through Zahn's choice of words provided imagery for my imagination. The narrator also did a great job. I have listened to other books Mr. Thompson has narrated and it is definitely a please to hear the author and him paired up. This book is worth the time and money.
