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. Praise for Thrawn "The origin story of one of the greatest Star Wars villains . . . a book that fans have wanted for decades."--The Verge "A satisfying tale of political intrigue . . . Thrawn's observations and tactical thinking are utterly captivating."--New York Daily News "Quite the page-turner."--Flickering Myth… (mer)

The plot was not as focused as I would have liked, but it did set up nicely Governor Price and Thrawn's backstory for Star Wars: Rebels (I definitely want to give that show a rewatch now). Probably deserves 3 stars, but stepping into Thrawn's POV is always a treat so it definitely gets bumped up another star just for that! ( )

This was my first (but certainly not the last) foray into Star Wars novels. I loved seeing the Empire from the other side of the coin. The book's character's largely don't see a need for revolution, don't frame their worldview around that. After so much media with a lens of breaking the status quo, this was a refreshing twist.
Thrawn and Vanto have a remarkable camaraderie and the characters really bring out the shine in each other. Thrawn's tactical genius is graced with his love for art and appreciation of human life, which is something the Empire sorely lacks. Their escapades and military maneuverings always had me glued to the page.

This book provides the new and perfectly understandable backstory for the revised version of the Empire's most charismatic Extended Universe character. I enjoyed parts of it a lot, but I would've liked more complicated space battles showcasing tactical brilliance and less chatting about philosophy.

Grand Admiral Thrawn, the antagonist introduced into Star Wars literature in the now non-canonical Heir to the Empire, is reintroduced in this Disney canon novel. This story serves as something of an origin story, beginning with Thrawn being found by the Imperial Navy after apparently having been exiled his mysterious species of people, the Chiss Ascendancy. The novel depicts his rapid rise through the ranks in the years after the end of the Clone Wars. Thrawn is known for his brilliant observational and strategic skills, and throughout the novel the reader gets to see his internal monologue on how he unravels the words and mannerisms of others.

The novel is also told from the perspective of Eli Vanto, a young cadet from Wild Space who inadvertently becomes Thrawn's translator and assistant. At first resentful of the interference in his own career path, Vanto grows to respect Thrawn and also rises in the hierarchy of the Imperial Navy. They have Holmes and Watson kind of relationship. In a parallel story, Arihnda Pryce rises to become governor of her homeworld Lothal through similar skills of cunning.

This novel is less war story or space opera and more a work of political intrigue. Zahn does a great job at taking these putative villains - Thrawn, Vanto, and Pryce - and making them captivating and even sympathetic characters. This is an excellent novel and I look forward to reading the rest of the series. ( )

I did actually really enjoy this intro to Thrawn. It was an interesting political novel. ( )
