Ahn Thrawn s original creater What could o wrong NOTHING The book is AWSOMEAs much as I loved Heir to the Empire we were never The Patriot Bride given too much background of Thrawn s raise through the Imperial ranks The fact that he was as non human at the rank of Grand Admiral which was unheard of in the xenophobic Imperial military So he must have been brilliant to stand out oret as far as he did However we never ot that part of his story apart from hints This book fills in many of those banks whilst leaving part to expand on for later It covers the highlights of Thrawn s entire Imperial career up till the point of him reaching Grand Admiral On a side note as evil as Palpatine was I have not read anywhere about him being xenophobic himself I am wondering if this is another Tarkin ism that was passed through the militaryThis has then wet my appetite for Rebels Season 3 unless you have already seen this season I would say read this before watching this it should enhance the viewing and provide a couple of links towards the end of the book I think Eli says it be as much as not is not possible to full know Thrawn he is as complex as he is brilliant The thing this book portrays is Thrawn is not evil he can be cold and a military man through and through but he is always aiming his tactics for preserving life and collateral damage I did also like the introduction of the Nightsswan as Thrawns adversery and Eli as a sort of apprentice Towards the end of the book we do et a bit understanding of why Thrawn joined the Empire Even though he is not in the book much I do like that fact the they show Palpatine is not an idiot he is a very skilled tactician as well especially in their last conversationI cannot recommend this book enough even with my sky high expectations this book delivered in every way This is a Inventing the Future great book for old Star Wars fans like men and fansetting to know Thrawn for the first time or even wanting background on him after seeing him in the TV series 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum opinion time I never cared for the Thrawn trilogy Though to be fair I was late to the party and only started reading Heir to the Empire after college sometime in the mid 2000s about 15 years after its original publication In my eyes the books did not A long time ago in a Understanding Women galaxy far far away I was once absolutely amazed and thrilled when a certain Timothy Zahn revitalized the whole Star Wars franchise by picking up a few decades after the events in Episode Six introducing the most charming and deadly enemy the New Republic had ever facedI was doubly amazed because there was no heavy reliance on BDOs just strategical and tactical strength Grand Admiral Thrawn came back from the outer rim and WIPED everything in his pathMy jaw dropped I said to myself MY LORD I WISH WE HAD ANOTHER TRILOGY OF MOVIES BASED ON THIS It s BRILLIANTInstead we had a preuel trilogy and then two out of three after trilogy and two side stories AND NO THRAWN ANYWHEREI felt areat disturbance in the Force as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silencedcricketsSo eventually I ot this bright idea Go back to the original author of Thrawn and read all about Thrawn s rise to power I avoided it only because I tend to avoid franchise novels but come on It s THRAWNAnd I was satisfied More than satisfied I loved etting an inside look into this brilliant uy with dual loyalties and enough wisdom for three sectors So Love to hate Enjoy just how brilliant a villain he is because he s also complex and admirableYep All of the above All the love of Darth Vader before we saw him as a kid and none of the mistakes Totally worth it Easily my favorite SW novel after Timothy Zahn s original classic I have to say I was a little disappointed because the other Timothy Zahn penned Star Wars books are SOOO ood This isn t so much the secret origin of Admiral Thrawn as it is just little snippets of his rise to the top There s very little characterization in the book It s a series of looks into Thrawn s victories using his tactical superiority Plus this is as much a book about Arihnda Pryce s rise through the Empire as it is anything else Every other chapter is her story which actually has of a through story than Thrawn E schools his trusted aide Ensign Eli Vanto in the arts of combat and 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 enemyAll 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 The Way Between the Worlds (The View from the Mirror, grip on thealaxy and his own carefully laid plans for future ascendancy.
Her own choosing of career path Each chapter begins with excerpts of Thrawn s personal diary that they are astonishingly written certainly a book about the art of war from the point of view of Thrawn could be something overwhelming to readThe Inverloch Volume 4 great tactician is back The warames are on again THIS GUY AND THIS GUY Nuff said Executive Summary After a slow start I really enjoyed this book a lot But I spent the whole book rooting for a member of the Empire and I feel dirty for itAudiobook Marc Thompson is so The Good and Beautiful God good that I really don t want to listen to a Star Wars book he doesn t narrate Youet the usual Star Wars audiobook treatment here Music Sound effects and a narrator who can do all the voices making this feel like a radio drama than a novel at times Generally I find music in audiobooks distracting but the Star Wars books always do it right and make any book narrated by Mr Thompson a must listen for me Full Review I always loved the Star Wars movies as a kid but I was never a big enough fan to jump into the Expanded Universe Legends books until I was much older Shortly after I did Disney bought Lucas and it made all of that stuff non canon The one series I did read was the one that everyone seemed to recommend the most The Thrawn trilogyI enjoyed that trilogy especially in audio Often dubbed the third trilogy it was a pretty ood attempt to tell a bit story after the end of Return of the Jedi I enjoyed those books but I didn t love them The main antagonist however was fantastic Thrawn made for a very different character than the emperor and Vadar I also found Mara Jade another excellent character Timothy Zahn s contribution to Star Wars was substantial It was a shame to see those characters suddenly be relegated to Legends I understand why they did it thoughFast forward a few years and when I saw the announcement that Thrawn was being added back into the canon again first on the excellent Star Wars Rebels show and later with a new book written by Timothy Zahn and I was really excitedI don t remember a whole lot about the original Thrawn series beyond the characteristics of Thrawn himself Most of the other characters and plot details are hazy at best What is fresh however is his appearance on Rebels This book serves as a backstory of sorts How Grand Admiral Thrawn came to be such a highly ranked member of the Imperial FleetYou et a lot insight into his thinking At times I found that a bit tedious especially the parts where he was observing people s facial movements in order to evaluate what they were thinking However as the book went on that seemed to be a bit less freuent or maybe I just finally ot used to it The character is so well done that I found myself rooting for him to outmaneuver everyone he went up against and forgot that he was working for the Empire He s certainly not the villain in this book that he was in the original trilogy or that he s portrayed on the Rebels show It probably helps that none of the usual heroes are present to oppose him Much of his issue stems from the empire itself I enjoyed etting this kind of view of the characterThe secondary characters were uite The Horse in Celtic Culture good as well Not uite to the standards of the original series but memorable nonetheless Eli Vanto is definitely a new favorite and I hope weet stories about him in addition to Thrawn Marinda Price was another interesting character who despite being a secondary character ot uite a lot of character development Originally I was wondering what her story had to do with the plot and I found the early parts of her sections slow Eventually though her story ot interesting and its relevance was revealedOverall I thought this was a really enjoyable addition and I hope that it s only the start because while we Every Boys Dream got a lot of interesting backstory on Thrawn I found myself with a lot uestions than answers I especially want to see where this fits in with the final season of the Rebels show This is areat book I had very high hopes for this book All the ingredients seemed to be in place I remember reading Heir to the Empire trilogy when it first came this ignited my love of reading and since I have devoured everything from the expanded universe What could o wrong with the book they even had Timothy Wer and infamyAfter 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 uickly Thrawn proves to be as indispensable to the Empire as he is ambitious; as devoted as its most loyal servant Darth Vader; 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 reater admiration from the Empire As one promotion follows another in his rapid ascension to reater power
I don t care to read any new Star Wars canon but anything Zahn writes I will read Boy did I want to like this book than I did A few uick background details prior to his appearing on Star Wars Rebels last fall I had close to zero prior experience with the character of Grand Admiral Thrawn I say close to zero because after doing a little research I was surprised to discover that he did make an appearance in one of the Galaxy of Fear books from the 90s a series that I remember reading voraciously as a youngster I have zero recollection of his appearance however After YEARS of hearing from scores of EU fans about the sheer awesomeness that was Grand Admiral Thrawn about his uncanny intellig Say oodbye to Sun Tzu s Art of War Behold Thrawn s Art of War Cue epic war drums Leadership and obedience are the two legs on which a warrior s life is balanced Without both victory cannot be achievedLeadership depends on information and comprehension Not so obedience Sometimes a commander may choose to share details of his plan Often he may not In either case obedience must be instant and completeSuch automatic response relies on trust between commander and those commanded And that trust can only be obtained through leadership The next The Multi-Orgasmic Man guy who isoing to declare war on me is oing to be really sorry A Stranger in Strange land Chiss Most of the alaxy thought this mysterious race of warriors as a harrowing myth A creation of blood chilling stories and rumorsNow It is no longer a rumor but a fact The empire s navy has found an exiled Chiss while patrolling the outer rims of the The Great Passage galaxy His name Mitth raw n Thereat tactician returns to the canon ONCE GREAT ALWAYS GREAT Grand Admiral Thrawn was created by Timothy Zahn in his original Thrawn trilogy that it was the cornerstone of the then Star Wars Expanded Universe in prose novels However due the buying of Disney of Lucasfilms that trilogy became non canon and part of what is know nowadays as Legends and of course since that trilogy was written so early in the franchise where the Clone Wars weren t properly developed in the Preuel Trilogy it s also clear that several details in that prose trilogy were already imposible to fit in the Star Wars canon timelineOf course Thrawn kept returning in a way or another mentioned or actually appearing in other following novels by Zahn but all those novels fell under the Legends label tooSo while a couple of years Thrawn remained in a blurry area without a canonical statusButThrawn became canonical once again in the Third Season of the CGI animated TV series Star Wars Rebels and he was The Beast House / After Midnight great there but it was a matter of respect andratitude that the high powers Disney and Lucasfilms executives would Off Leash (Freelance Familiars Book 1) give areen light to the prolific author Timothy Zahn to write a new novel now properly inside of the current Star Wars Canon revealing an unknown part of Thrawn s past and how he reached the high rank of Grand Admiral in the Imperial NavyAnd so Thrawn proved once again that he was I Walk in Dread great since the beginning with his military cunning astonishing tactics timing caution charismatic manipulation deep interest in art and culture and intense honorOncereat always The Life You Save great Not matter if canon or not NOT EVEN THRAWN IS AN ISLAND In this exceptional novel Timothy Zahn exposed how an alien from even outside of thealaxy was able to reach one of the highest ranks in the racist and elitist Imperial Navy that as in many real life situation you can t do it without friendships alliances and contactsThrawn forges key links with already known Star Wars characters I don t spoil them but also he played his hands when choosing to keep near of him characters like Eli Vanto first appearance here and Arihnda Pryce introduced in Star Wars Rebels where each became valuable assets to the Tempting Meredith (Lovers and Friends, great tactician in different battlefields Military and Politics respectivelyOf course while the book was reallyreat in the chapters dedicated to Thrawn that it was my reason to read the novel I felt that there were just too much about Arinhda Pryce that it was clear that she was pivotal to help Thrawn in certain moments of his rising military career however I don t think it was necessary to explain in so much detail how Arihnda Pryce ascended in. 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 po.
