"The must-have original Star Wars novel of the year so far" * Star Wars Aficionado * "Timothy Zahn has written a taut, intense and intelligent novel and although all-out action scenes might be sporadic, the action itself is derived from the fascinating insights to the political manoeuvrings and duplicitous alliances. Star Wars: Thrawn is the I, Claudius of space opera at its finest" * Starburst Magazine * "A real page turner... This is one of the best of the new Star Wars novels. If you are a Star Wars fan, especially of Rebels or the original novels, then it is a must read.. This is a well-constructed novel in its own right. The handling of the racism is very well done, and it shows how sci-fi novels can handle difficult subjects" * Nudge * "Thrawn has now truly arrived in his strongest form, via the novel" * Partisan Cantina *
