Thrawn by Timothy Zahn (April 11, 2017 by Del Rey)
I’m going to start with what I suspect will be a very unpopular opinion here, but to tell the truth, I’ve never really cared for the Thrawn trilogy books. I think they’re overrated, honestly. Thrawn, however, is still one of the best characters to come out of Star Wars universe, like EVER, so you can bet I will still be reading this one come hell or high water. As you know the original series has now been classified “Legends” along with much of the old Expanded Universe, but Thrawn was canonically reintroduced in the current season Star Wars Rebels and this book is supposed to cover the story of his rise to power. According to Timothy Zahn, we’ll get to see how his character became so respected in the Empire and why he is such a brilliant tactician, and perhaps some of it too will fit nicely with the original trilogy so I expect there will also be plenty of Easter eggs for fans.
