Perhaps Zahns best. Perhaps.
29 July 2018
I have read all of Mr Zahns Star Wars novels and honestly thought that they were of the “okay” variety. Yes, I know that his original trilogy is treated as some kind of second coming by many but I always found them all just a bit underwhelming, including the last Thrawn entry. However. This time round I do believe that he has knocked it out of the park, as our American cousins
For me, the best parts of this novel are those written from Vader’s perspective. Getting an insight into how he thinks and what he thinks is incredibly entertaining. How he reconciles his reactions against those of Anakin are also quite instructive.
If you are a Star Wars fan, buy this. If you are just a Rebels fan, buy this. If you loved the previous Thrawn entries, buy this.
