Thrawn is back for more in the second installment of Timothy Zahn’s Ascendancy trilogy!




Del Rey has announced that the next installment in Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy will be released on May 4th, 2021. Just in time for Star Wars day. May the Force be with you Thrawn fans!

I am a massive Thrawn fan so this is excellent news. While part of me is disappointed that Thrawn’s fate is still unknown, I am happy to accept any Thrawn content. Books, comics, figures. Yes please.

Del Rey recently revealed the cover for Greater Good. Isn’t it wonderful?

Check out the official synopsis for Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good:

Thrawn’s latest triumph still rests newly on his shoulders. Despite leading the Chiss to victory and bringing glory to the House of Mitth, the true threat to the Ascendancy has not yet been extinguished. Their foes do not send threats or ultimatums, or 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 enemy plot, they discover a chilling truth. Rather than invade Chiss capitals or pillage resources, this mysterious enemy strikes at the very foundation of the Ascendancy by widening the rifts between the Nine Ruling Families and Forty Great Houses below. As rivalry and suspicion sow discord among allies, each warrior must decide what matters most: the security of their family, or the survival of the Ascendancy itself.

Looks like Thrawn has met his match

On top of that, Del Rey has teamed up with Out of Print to bring Star Wars fans some exclusive goodies. Fans can rush to own a collector’s edition version of Chaos Rising which comes with a new cover designed by Illustrator Magali Villeneuve. Each copy in this limited run of 750 will be signed by Timothy Zahn.

You’ll also be able to pick up a t-shirt with Zahn’s cover of Heir to the Empire (Thrawn’s first appearance) printed on it.

The release of Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good falls nicely on the 30th anniversary of Heir of the Empire. Keen readers and fans will be able to celebrate the first appearance of Grand Admiral Thrawn in style and with a brand new chapter in Thrawn’s unmissable story.
