Waiting on Wednesday 11/29/17
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
Star Wars: Thrawn: Alliances by Timothy Zahn (June 26, 2018 by Del Rey)
In honor of Sci-Fi Month, I’m featuring sci-fi picks for my Waiting on Wednesday posts for the whole of November. Since this is the final week before we head into December, I’m closing off with one of my greatest loves: STAR WARS. Behold this gorgeous cover featuring two of the greatest villains in Star Wars history! I really enjoyed reading about the origins of our favorite Chiss Admiral in last year’s Thrawn, so I’m curious to see where Zahn will be taking him next in this follow-up novel.
“…once you have done Thrawn in a book, where do you go from here? How do you up the game, what can you do to make it even better?“―Timothy Zahn on writing Thrawn: Alliances
“Grand Admiral Thrawn and Darth Vader ally against a threat to the Empire in this new novel from bestselling author Timothy Zahn.
The sequel to New York Times bestseller Thrawn, Thrawn: Alliances will continue to follow the rise of Grand Admiral Thrawn to the heights of Imperial power—and accompany him into the past, witnessing his first encounter with the man who will one day become Darth Vader.”
Oh nice! That’s a new to me one! I hope you love it once you get to read it!
Here’s my WoW
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower 🙂
I still haven’t caught up with the newer Star Wars films!
Argh, another one! I will never be able to catch up😊
Happily, most of the new canon novels have been stand alone, so there’s not much “catching up” to do per se, but I totally get the natural inclination to start with the earlier books 🙂
One day 😉
Never read a Star Wars book but really enjoy the movies. Can’t wait for the new one!
A story from the Dark Side, featuring “bad” guys as main characters must be fascinating indeed! 🙂
I’ve noticed too that they seem to be putting out a lot more books focusing on the “dark side” POV in the new canon!

Hope you love it and it proves to be a strong addition.
STAR WARS! OMG I can’t wait for the new movie in a few weeks. I’ve yet to read any of the Star Wars books though. :O I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!
Have a fabulous week, Mogsy. =)
