The way Zahn weaves the story of thrawn is exciting and deliberate. This is a must read for not only star wars fans but fans of great novels. Thrawn is by far the best new Canon book released to date. I can not wait for what comes next.

As a long time fan of Timothy Zahn and Thrawn himself, this book did not disappoint in the least bit. I pre-ordered it with excitement when I heard of it's impending release and don't regret it in the least bit. Getting into Thrawn's mind was an absolute treat and the way this tied into Star Wars Rebels was just an added bonus. It in fact makes me want to watch season 3 all over again just to pay more attention to Thrawn all over again.

Zahn does (again) what other Star Wars writers can only dream of: gives fans a character that they simply love for seemingly no reason...but do they ever! 26 years later and a blue-skinned red-eyed "alien" commands more attention with just his name on the cover than nearly any one character in Star Wars history! Love Luke, Leia, Han, Chewy, Yoda, Obi Wan and Vader...but Thrawn gets equal billing with any of those. Chuck Wendig needed to pull the "gay card" to sell his lame plotlines...Zahn? How many people are clamoring for Thrawn in a movie? And that waa BEFORE he was even canon!

I enjoyed the book a lot! I've enjoyed his books and was very impressed with it. A lot of authers don't make as good of books after gaining popularity, but he has kept up the good work and is my current favorite auther.

History is on the move. Those who cannot read will be left behind unable to read a sentence. And those who stand in Timothy Zahn's way will never read at all. There are authors in the world that are simply and purely awesome. A reader does not seek terrible books, or imperfect books. He seeks only the awesomeness of Timothy Zahn's¿ books. This book was an excellent read! I was overwhelmed with happiness when I heard Timothy Zahn was in the process of creating a book solely on Thrawn himself. I would recommend this to all Star Wars fans and readers. Thank you, Timothy Zahn, for another one of your works of art. And yes, it was so artistically done...

Great read, capturing all the great traits from the original series, but with such a great dive into smartly building Thrawn's personality and tactical ability through years of experience instead of just dropping us into a point of his career where we just have to accept his genius without knowing how and where he achieved it. Also very rewarding simply to have Thrawn as canon now. One of my favorite SW novels,

Quite possibly my favorite canon Star Wars novel. Absolutely love Thrawn, as well as the new characters introduced. Timothy Zahn did a fantastic job re-introducing Thrawn into the canon.

Zhan picks up his beautiful character, and runs with him. Blown away as always. Zhan is a pro... Thrawn is a genius.

Thrawn serves many purposes. On one hand, it reintroduces readers to a fan favorite character. From Thrawn’s discovery by the Empire to his rise through the ranks, this book shows the character in action just as we remembered him. But it’s also an introduction for new readers. Through the story, they’ll learn more about the character than what has been revealed on the animated television show. While Timothy Zahn hasn’t changed much about the character, this novel has given him the opportunity to explore a part of Thrawn’s life we haven’t seen before, as well as telling a story that’s completely canon. So whether you’re a fan of Thrawn or a fan of Star Wars Rebels, Thrawn has a lot to offer. First off, Thrawn covers a lot of territory. The book starts out in Wildspace with the discovery of Thrawn which results in the Empire’s first encounter with him. It goes from him joining the Empire, gaining their trust, and slowly, raising through the ranks. We see Thrawn go to an Imperial academy for training. We see him deal with the alien bias of the Empire, learning their ways, their culture and even their language. His career goes from ship to ship, assignment to assignment, and all the promotions along the way. Ultimately, it ends with his promotion to Grand Admiral. For Star Wars Rebels fans, this story goes a long way in fleshing out the character. It explores what makes Chiss unique from humans, it dives into Thrawn’s motivations and goals, and it explains what happened with Batonn which was mentioned on the show. Furthermore, the book sheds more light on Yularen and his relationship with Thrawn, which ties into the show. It touches upon Thrawn’s relationship with the Emperor which has not been explored in the show, but has been mentioned in other books like the Aftermath Trilogy. Yet one of the biggest surprises of the book is the inclusion of Governor Pryce. In Star Wars Rebels, Governor Pryce didn’t show up until later seasons of the show and her character has received almost no background. In Thrawn, we get a complete background for Pryce. The book dives into her life on Lothal before she sided with the Empire. It shows her family, her struggles, and her character motivations. Through the book, we slowly see how she came to power and became the character we see in the show. Oddly enough, I was so intrigued by her character that her exploration in the story actually rivaled that of Thrawn. I loved seeing Pryce as someone other than just another Imperial crony. While she’s no tactician like Thrawn, she is quite the political power player. Yet it’s the little things about her character, the moments that make her relatable, that adds so much to Pryce. It throws her character into an all new light. There is one other character worth mentioning, is that is Eli Vanto. Eli is a new character and in a way, he serves as a fill in for Pellaeon who isn’t in this book. Eli ends up being tied to Thrawn and his training, essentially his tutor for speaking Basic and the culture of the Empire. However Thrawn takes it upon himself to train Eli as an officer, teaching him tactics and how to study one’s opponents. This creates a little bit of a buffer between the reader and Thrawn as Eli is used as the viewpoint character, which helps maintain some of the mystery. That said, the book still dives into Thrawn’s head especially with journal entries by Thrawn at the beginning of each chapter.
