Thrawn is one of my favorite Star Wars characters ever!!!!!!!

The book was really good, but starts slowing down towards the end. This book actually took me one week to finish, which is saying a lot since I can read a 500 page book in two-to-three hours (I actually can). I’m not saying it is boring, it just takes some time to read.

Unfortunately the newer Star Wars books have started getting more and more sciencey than fiction. Less battles and fights and more political garbage, which I personally find boring.

Over all, average book, not “The Best Book EVER!!!!”, but not horrible either. And it’s about Thrawn. I highly recommend the original Thrawn trilogy (also by Timothy Zahn) and I will review that on here as soon as I read it again.

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.
