Introduced in a book by Timothy Zahn back in 1991, the blue-skinned Thrawn – the master tactician who took control of the remaining Empire forces after the events of Return of the Jedi – went on to become one of the most iconic Star Wars villains. All those expanded appearances were made non-canonical status back in 2014, of course, but thankfully Thrawn has been preserved, appearing in CG series Star Wars Rebels.
Now he’s the focus of a new novel by Zahn, which reveals his origins and tells the story of his rise to the rank of Admiral, a role in which he must use all his cunning to battle an insurgent uprising that threatens the Empire’s grip on the galaxy. Star Wars: Thrawn is released in both hardback and ebook formats on 11 April. Thanks to publishers Century we have five prize bundles to give away, each comprising a hardback copy of the book, a poster of the cover art, and a bookmark.
