Zahn’s Thrawn trilogy will come to a climactic end book three- Lesser Evil




Grand Admiral Thrawn’s origin story is coming to an end this year. The final book in the series, Lesser Evil, is set to be released in November. Thrawn Ascendancy: Lesser Evil finds The Chiss Ascendancy — rulers of Csilla — fractured, with Thrawn (also known as Mitth’raw’nuruodo and Kivu’raw’nuru) caught in the middle.

We can’t wait to read the final installment of this Thrawn trilogy. The Grand Admiral has been one our favourite Star Wars villains for quite sometime. If you don’t don’t know much about Timothy Zahn’s character, we high recommend checking out Zahn’s original trilogy from 1990s which introduced Thrawn. Alternatively, you can check out the more recent canonized trilogy which sees Thrawn working with Vader and going up against Director Krennic.

Here is the official synopsis for Lesser Evil:

For thousands of years The Chiss Ascendancy has been an island of calm, a center of power, and a beacon of integrity. Led by the Nine Ruling Families, their leadership stands as a bulwark of stability against the Chaos of the Unknown Regions.

But that stability has been eroded by a cunning foe that winnows away trust and loyalty in equal measure. Bonds of fidelity have given way to lines of division among the families. Despite the efforts of the Expansionary Defense Fleet, the Ascendancy slips closer and closer toward civil war.

The Chiss are no strangers to war. Their mythic status in the Chaos was earned through conflict and terrible deeds, some long buried. Until now. To ensure the Ascendancy’s future, Thrawn will delve deep into its past, uncovering the dark secrets surrounding the ascension of the First Ruling Family. But the truth of a family’s legacy is only as strong as the legend that supports it. Even if that legend turns out to be a lie.

To secure the salvation of the Ascendancy, is Thrawn willing to sacrifice everything? Including the only home he has ever known?

Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn Ascendancy – Lesser Evil will be available on November 16th. We’ll be sure to let you know when pre-orders go live. Book two- Greater Good is coming out on April 27th and is available to pre-order now.
