General Admiral Thrawn has long ago won his place in the Star Wars history as one of the most ruthless and cunning warriors in the Galactic Empire, but where did his story begin? Find your answers in best-selling author Timothy Zahn’s latest book, Star Wars: Thrawn. After being rescued from exile by Imperial soldiers, Thrawn’s deadly ingenuity and keen tactical abilities swiftly capture the attention of Emperor Palpatine. On missions to rout smugglers, snare spies, and defeat pirates he triumphs time and time again—quickly ascending through the ranks. But while he may dominate in the battlefield, he still has much to learn about politics. All his lessons will be put to the ultimate test when he finally becomes admiral and an insurgent uprising threatens not only innocent lives and the Empire’s grip on the galaxy, but also his ambitions for the future. Discover the origins of one of the most captivating characters in the Star Wars universe with insight from the writer who first introduced him!
