Thrawn: Treason (Star Wars)
Thrawn: Treason (Star Wars) | Timothy Zahn
5 posts | 6 read | 1 reading | 1 to read
Grand Admiral Thrawn faces the ultimate test of his loyalty to the Empire in this epic Star Wars novel from bestselling author Timothy Zahn. If I were to serve the Empire, you would command my allegiance. Such was the promise Grand Admiral Thrawn made to Emperor Palpatine at their first meeting. Since then, Thrawn has been one of the Empires most effective instruments, pursuing its enemies to the very edges of the known galaxy. But as keen a weapon as Thrawn has become, the Emperor dreams of something far more destructive. Now, as Thrawns TIE defender program is halted in favor of Director Krennics secret Death Star project, he realizes that the balance of power in the Empire is measured by more than just military acumen or tactical efficiency. Even the greatest intellect can hardly compete with the power to annihilate entire planets. As Thrawn works to secure his place in the Imperial hierarchy, his former protg Eli Vanto returns with a dire warning about Thrawns homeworld. Thrawns mastery of strategy must guide him through an impossible choice: duty to the Chiss Ascendancy, or fealty to the Empire he has sworn to serve. Even if the right choice means committing treason.

This one took a bit to get going for me, but by the end I thoroughly enjoyed it. I don‘t always enjoy the Empire-side stories as much, but Thrawn who is alien even by the Empire‘s standards, is so intriguing. This one focuses on the Chiss Ascendancy‘s enemy, a very creepy alien species named the Grysk, who creep into Empire space & cross paths with Stardust construction, creating a magnificent collision of characters & plots.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa And one more on theme book for #TeamStoker #Scarathlon @thereadingmermaid Technically they are all aliens, then add Thrawn who is alien to them, but then add a still creepier “other” group of invading aliens. So 👾👽 aliens galore! 1mo

So I didn‘t actually enjoy this one as much as the previous two. :( I loved Thrawn and Thrawn: Alliances (loved the team-up with Vader in that one). For whatever reason the plot of this one didn‘t grab me as much. I‘m definitely interested in a fourth one though!

By far the best in the series. Thrawn is SUCH a good character.
