Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Discover Thrawn’s origins within the Chiss Ascendancy in the first book in an epic new Star Wars trilogy from bestselling author Timothy Zahn.

Beyond the edge of the galaxy lies the Unknown Regions: chaotic, uncharted, and near impassable, with hidden secrets and dangers in equal measure. And nestled within its swirling chaos is the Ascendancy, home to the enigmatic Chiss and the Nine Ruling Families that lead them.

The peace of the Ascendancy, a beacon of calm and stability, is shattered after a daring attack on the Chiss capital that leaves no trace of the enemy. Baffled, the Ascendancy dispatches one of its brightest young military officers to root out the unseen assailants. A recruit born of no title, but adopted into the powerful family of the Mitth and given the name Thrawn.

With the might of the Expansionary Fleet at his back, and the aid of his comrade Admiral Ar’alani, answers begin to fall into place. But as Thrawn’s first command probes deeper into the vast stretch of space his people call the Chaos, he realizes that the mission he has been given is not what it seems. 

And the threat to the Ascendancy is only just beginning.

ddasheriii ,

The best of the new Thrawn books.

Freed from the limitations of operating in the Empire, this prequel to Thrawn’s adventures for Palpatine showcase a new side to the blue-skinned commander. Glimpses of the political structure to the Ascendancy are definitely a highlight, and watching Thrawn outmaneuver almost every obstacle is simply a delight. I couldn’t put the book down!

Cute

Really good if you really like Thrawn

Thalias and Patriarch Thoorak … brilliant

Skywalkers and caregivers are an interesting, separate twist - Thalias, the Mitth, and Patriarch Thoorak offer a Thrawn storyline depth that’s simply a wonderful ‘hook’. On to the second in the series, I hope to run across more. Excellent Thrawn read!
