Grand Admiral Thrawn faces the ultimate test of his loyalty to the Empire in this epic Star Wars novel from best-selling 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 Empire’s 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.

Weakest of the new trilogy but should lead to more books on Thrawn. Greatest star wars character ever.

Loved every part of this story and it was very well read. Like a number of the Disney era books, this helps to fill the gaps in between the movies and provides more substance to the Star Wars universe.
Loving the audio versions of the books as they are allowing me to get through a lot more, at a faster rate than would be possible through reading myself.
