Timothy Zahn Announces a New Thrawn Novel (VIDEO)


Timothy Zahn is returning to write another novel about Grand Admiral Thrawn! 

Zahn has announced that his next book is titled Thrawn: Treason, and it hits book stores in 2019.

Treason is set before the "Rebels" finale, and in it, Thrawn’s loyalty is tested. He crosses paths with Orson Krennic, and his protégé Eli Vanto returns with dire warnings about Thrawn’s homeworld.

StarWars.com posted an official description for Treason.

“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.

Now, as Thrawn’s TIE defender program is halted in favor of Director Krennic’s secret Death Star project, he realizes that the balance of power in the Empire is measured by more than just military acumen or tactical efficiency. Even the greatest intellect can hardly compete with the power to annihilate entire planets.

As Thrawn works to secure his place in the Imperial hierarchy, his former protégé Eli Vanto returns with a dire warning about Thrawn’s homeworld. Thrawn’s mastery of strategy must guide him through an impossible choice: duty to the Chiss Ascendancy, or fealty to the Empire he has sworn to serve. Even if the right choice means committing treason.

Here's the cover to the new Thrawn novel by Timothy Zahn.


Here's the new episode of "The Star Wars Show," which discusses the new book.


Thrawn: Treason comes out next summer, and pre-orders for the book open next week.
