This book is at its lowest price within the past year.

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.

After Thrawn is rescued from exile by Imperial soldiers, his deadly ingenuity and keen tactical abilities swiftly capture the attention of Emperor Palpatine. And just as quickly, Thrawn proves to be as indispensable to the Empire as he is ambitious; as devoted as its most loyal servant, Anakin Skywalker; and a brilliant warrior never to be underestimated. On missions to rout smugglers, snare spies, and defeat pirates, he triumphs time and again—even as his renegade methods infuriate superiors while inspiring ever greater admiration from the Empire. As one promotion follows another in his rapid ascension to greater power, he schools his trusted aide, ensign Eli Vanto, in the arts of combat, leadership, and the secrets of claiming victory. But even though Thrawn dominates the battlefield, he has much to learn in the arena of politics where ruthless administrator Arihnda Pryce holds the power to be a potent ally or a brutal enemy.

All these lessons will be put to the ultimate test when Thrawn rises to admiral—and must pit all the knowledge, instincts, and battle forces at his command against an insurgent uprising that threatens not only innocent lives but also the Empire’s grip on the galaxy—and his own carefully laid plans for future ascendency.

The cover looks like a perfume box
Can you still get the original Timothy Zahn Heir to the Empire trilogy anywhere? I know that they're no longer canon but fancy a nostalgia trip and they seem to be unavailable digitally.

Thanks, I looked a few months ago and couldn't find them, probably user error!
Been listening to the audiobook, but for anyone who hasn't get into this series it is definitely worth it!

I'd not heard of him until SW Rebels, such an interesting character.

Jar Jar Binks would have been an improvement.
Read this at least 4 times, shame they never used these stories for the follow on movies. Highly recommended. It's took some time for the price to drop

I live in constant fear of Darth Jar Jar.
How good would it be if Thrawn was the character Matt Smith was playing in the new movie?still think he’ll be the Emperor’s son and Rey’s dad.
Not read any SW books, should I start with heir to the empire?

The original Thrawn trilogy is very good, so... Why not? There's no point of reference on where to start your SW book journey. Just start with characters or time period you like and see where it gets you
The Thrawn trilogy are way better than the newer movies. I look forward to reading this one soon.

I think they have only recently been made available as i was keeping an eye out for them 2. Pricey at 6.49 each though. I paid less than that for the physical copies i have!

TBH it depends.

If you arent bothered about it not being in a universe related to the current set of films then this is a great place to start. Follow the trilogy up with the jedi academy trilogy. Anything not related to the new universe disney created is labelled as 'legends'. Personally i prefer this 'legends' universe as this was the way i wanted Luke, Leia and Han to continue their adventures. Not the way that the 'Last Jedi' went.

If you prefer the official Disney canon universe, then aftermath (also 1.99 for kindle) is a good place to start.
Hope that helps!
