Grand Admiral Thrawn and Darth Vader team up against a
threat to the Empire in this thrilling novel from
bestselling author Timothy Zahn.
â€śI have sensed a disturbance in the Force.â€ť
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
rootâ€”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 emperorâ€™s favor, and outspoken adversaries on Imperial
affairsâ€”including the Death Star projectâ€”the formidable pair
seem unlikely partners for such a crucial mission. But the
Emperor knows itâ€™s not the first time Vader and Thrawn have
joined forces. And thereâ€™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 Mitthâ€™rawâ€™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
allianceâ€”neither remotely aware of what their futures held
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 challengedâ€”by a test of their
allegiance to the Empire . . . and an enemy that threatens
even their combined might.
