The official synopsis is released for Timothy Zahn's upcoming novel, Star Wars: Thrawn Alliances.
Author Timothy Zahn is bringing Grand Admiral Thrawn to Star Wars fans in a new novel and his publisher has just released the first official synopsis of the book. Titled Star Wars: Thrawn Alliances, this new book will see Thrawn teaming up with Darth Vader.
"Ominous words under any circumstances, but all the more so when uttered by Emperor Palpatine. On Batuu, at the edges of the Unknown Regions, a threat to the Empire is taking root—its existence little more than a glimmer, its consequences as yet unknowable. But it is troubling enough to the Imperial leader to warrant investigation by his most powerful agents: ruthless enforcer Lord Darth Vader and brilliant strategist Grand Admiral Thrawn. Fierce rivals for the emperor’s favor, and outspoken adversaries on Imperial affairs—including the Death Star project—the formidable pair seem unlikely partners for such a crucial mission. But the Emperor knows it’s not the first time Vader and Thrawn have joined forces. And there’s more behind his royal command than either man suspects.
In what seems like a lifetime ago, General Anakin Skywalker of the Galactic Republic, and Commander Mitth’raw’nuruodo, officer of the Chiss Ascendancy, crossed paths for the first time. One on a desperate personal quest, the other with motives unknown . . . and undisclosed. But facing a gauntlet of dangers on a far-flung world, they forged an uneasy alliance—neither remotely aware of what their futures held in store.
Now, thrust together once more, they find themselves bound again for the planet where they once fought side by side. There they will be doubly challenged—by a test of their allegiance to the Empire . . . and an enemy that threatens even their combined might."The synopsis sounds great and it'll be interesting to see these two team up and how they interact with each other. The key thing here is also how long it will take Thrawn to realize that Darth Vader is Anakin Skywalker. Will you be picking up Star Wars: Thrawn Alliances when it is released in stores?
