About this deal

There are also some fun scenes with Thrawn and his bodyguard Rukh, where the latter’s undying loyalty is soon at odds with what the rest of his Noghri race do. Intricate Plot Weaving: Zahn masterfully weaves multiple plot threads together, creating a tapestry of interconnected storylines that build tension and anticipation. Ten minutes ago, the ground forces surrounding the target had reported themselves ready; the Chimaera itself had been holding blockade position for nearly an hour. As they are fleeing, Karrde and Mara Jade stumble across the long lost Katana Fleet, also known as the Dark Force. Thrawn has escalated his plan to the next stage, having successfully captured several of the Emperor's assets, including his very secret storage facility on Wayland.

This second book is better than the first one, while I still considering quite relevant and important the first book, just lacking of a climax of my taste. Evil Jedi C'Boath who is so badass that he gets Luke to come and visit him and then MAKES HIM be judge to a bunch of farmers.

For a moment those glowing eyes studied him, and Pellaeon unconsciously braced himself for a reprimand, or worse.

How flaw many of the Star wars protagonists have been written is especially obvious when contrasting it with Thrawn, although fangirls and boys will of course also enjoy the known stars of the show. This might be because the end of this relationship is something I already know the outcome of and therefore I’m projecting that knowledge onto what I’m reading, but it’s fun all the same. Trying, sir,” the voice came back, tinny and distant through the strange dampening effects of Myrkr’s metal-rich flora.

Standing at one of the side bridge viewports of the Imperial Star Destroyer Chimaera, Captain Pellaeon watched as the fuzzy terminator line crept toward the target zone on the planet below. As Princess Leia—pregnant with Jedi twins—risks her life to bring a proud and lethal alien race into alliance with the Republic, Han and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside the highest Republic Council—only to discover instead a ghostly fleet of warships that could bring doom to their friends and victory to their enemies. He finally had to face off against the Dark Jedi and spent less time drifting around aimlessly in his X-Wing. It’s all rather moot however as Grand Admiral Thrawn arrives with a couple of Star Destroyers and a large space fight breaks out.

Even though I've read the entire trilogy more than once, I'm still excited to see what happens next!

I was wrong to say this as slow as it might be, every arc eventually worked itself out in the end so I couldn't help but think that I was a little too hasty.Mara Jade junto con Talon Karrde están huyendo del Imperio que les ha puesto dinero por sus cabezas tras la ayuda que proporcionaron a nuestros héroes en la anterior entrega y Han y Leia siguen buscando alianzas e intentando exculpar a Ackbar de sus acusaciones.

At New Cov, it is believed that one of Senator Borsk Fey'lya's advisers is a traitor to the New Republic for Thrawn, and is thus a primary suspect for Delta Source.After not being a big fan of how little Force and Jedi there were in the previous book I was happy with what we got here. He also has the ysalamiri, strange creatures that project anti-Force bubbles, and which are very handy for dealing with Jedi. Timothy Zahn is the Hugo Award-winning author of more than forty original science fiction novels and the bestselling Star Wars trilogy Heir to the Empire, among other works. Because whether Grand Admiral Thrawn was interested in real results or just a good rousing show, he was going to get his money’s worth. Grand Admiral Thrawn remains an excellent villain, but his character was slightly weakened by the amount of blunders he made in this one.
