Check out all the details below!
“If I were to serve the Empire, you would command my allegiance.”
Such was the promise Grand Admiral Thrawn made to Emperor Palpatine at their first meeting. Since then, Thrawn has been one of the Empire’s most effective instruments, pursuing its enemies to the very edges of the known galaxy. But as keen a weapon as Thrawn has become, the Emperor dreams of something far more destructive.
Now, as Thrawn’s TIE defender program is halted in favor of Director Krennic’s secret Death Star project, he realizes that the balance of power in the Empire is measured by more than just military acumen or tactical efficiency. Even the greatest intellect can hardly compete with the power to annihilate entire planets.
As Thrawn works to secure his place in the Imperial hierarchy, his former protégé Eli Vanto returns with a dire warning about Thrawn’s homeworld. Thrawn’s mastery of strategy must guide him through an impossible choice: duty to the Chiss Ascendancy, or fealty to the Empire he has sworn to serve. Even if the right choice means committing treason.
Thrawn Treason will be available Summer 2019, and will be up for pre-order next week. It will be available in ebook, audio and hardcover from all your favorite booksellers.
About Del Rey Books:
Del Rey Books was the original publisher for Star Wars books, beginning with the Star Wars novelization, which came out a few months before the 1977 movie. Besides the novelizations, we published the first-ever spin-off novel and many nonfiction books, including “Making of” books, the beloved “Art of” books, and the innovative “Essential Guide” series. Bantam Spectra published the Star Wars novels from 1991-1999. Recently Del Rey and Bantam Spectra were merged into one publishing imprint and all Star Wars books published by the two imprints now fall under the new imprint banner.
