Thrawn and his allies race to save the Chiss Ascendancy from an unseen enemy in the second book in the epic Star Wars: Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy from bestselling author Timothy Zahn.

Thrawn’s latest triumph still rests newly on his shoulders. He has led the Chiss to victory and brought glory to the House of Mitth, but the true threat to the Ascendancy has not yet been extinguished. Their foes do not send threats or ultimatums, do not mass ships on the edge of the Chaos. Their weapons come cloaked in smiles and generosity: Gifts offered freely. Services granted unconditionally.

Across the Ascendancy, seemingly inconsequential events could herald the doom of the Chiss. As Thrawn and the Expansionary Defense Fleet rally to uncover the plot, they discover a chilling truth: Rather than invade Chiss capitals or pillage resources, their enemy strikes at the very foundation of the Ascendancy, seeking to widen the rifts between the Nine Ruling Families and the Forty Great Houses below. As rivalry and suspicion sow discord among allies, each warrior must decide what matters most to them: the security of their family or the survival of the Ascendancy itself.

Story Locale: A galaxy far, far away….

Series Overview: The Thrawn Ascendancy Trilogy chronicles the origins and home of Thrawn in the years before his time as a Grand Admiral in the Empire. It explores the Chiss Ascendancy, set in a part of space beyond the known galaxy.

A BELOVED CHARACTER RETURNS IN A NEW TRILOGY: Upon its release in 1991, Star Wars: Heir to the Empire was the first book in what is now called the Star Wars Legends line of novels. This trilogy introduced the character of Thrawn and jump-started three decades of Star Wars publishing. Thrawn: Ascendancy kicks off an all-new trilogy to star Star Wars books’ most iconic villain.

THRAWN’S ORIGIN AND HOMEWORLD: One of the most popular Star Wars characters ever, Thrawn’s homeworld and origins have never been fully realized before. This all new trilogy will delve into the stories, characters, and events that shaped Thrawn into a legendary figure.

THIRTY YEARS OF THRAWN: 2021 marks the 30th Anniversary of Heir to the Empire, the novel that debuted Thrawn and helped launch Star Wars novels

MODERN AND CLASSIC: Today’s fans still regard the Thrawn Trilogy (Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command) as three of the greatest Star Wars novels ever written. Even 30 years later, new and returning readers alike made Star Wars: Thrawn a New York Times bestseller. Between the Legends trilogy, the canon Imperial trilogy, the canon television series, and graphic novel releases spanning decades, Thrawn commands a wider audience than any other Star Wars book character.
