The wait is over. Thrawn by Timothy Zahn is out today in hardcover, digital and audiobook versions. There are also several different versions of the hardcover including the normal cover (as pictured left), there is the Barnes & Noble edition (which has a black cover), and there’s an edition exclusive to Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017. You can find out more about the different versions here. Note that the content is the same for all three, except the B&N version has a pull out poster, and the Celebration edition has printed end pages with images of the Chimera and includes a special collectible Thrawn pin.

In this definitive novel, readers will follow Thrawn’s rise to power—uncovering the events that created one of the most iconic villains in Star Wars history.

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 power—and infamy.
