‘Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good’ New Cover And Release Date Announced

Publishing company Del Rey has announced that the next book in the Thrawn prequel trilogy will be called Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good, and will release on May 4, 2021.

io9 had the exclusive report that the next chapter in Thrawn’s legacy will deal with a greater enemy threatening to destroy the Chiss Ascendancy. In the previous Thrawn Ascendancy: Chaos Rising, Thrawn succeeded in defeating General Yiv the Benevolent. It seems that this new enemy is a politically savvy foe, an area that is infamously Thrawn’s weak link.

io9 also revealed the cover art for Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good.

The synopsis for Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good is below:

Thrawn’s latest triumph still rests newly on his shoulders. Despite leading the Chiss to victory and bringing glory to the House of Mitth, the true threat to the Ascendancy has not yet been extinguished. Their foes do not send threats or ultimatums, or mass ships on the edge of the Chaos. Their weapons come cloaked in smiles and generosity—gifts offered freely, services granted unconditionally.

Across the Ascendancy, seemingly inconsequential events could herald the doom of the Chiss. As Thrawn and the Expansionary Defense Fleet rally to uncover the enemy plot, they discover a chilling truth. Rather than invade Chiss capitals or pillage resources, this mysterious enemy strikes at the very foundation of the Ascendancy by widening the rifts between the Nine Ruling Families and Forty Great Houses below. As rivalry and suspicion sow discord among allies, each warrior must decide what matters most: the security of their family, or the survival of the Ascendancy itself.

Del Rey will also release a limited edition of Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good, that includes a new cover, foil-stamped slipcase and printed with Chiss iconography. Each copy is signed by Timothy Zahn himself. Out of Print will assist in the production of the limited edition copies

Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good is projected to release on May 4, 2021.  This date coincides with the 30 year anniversary of Heir to the Empire, where we were first introduced to Grand Admiral Thrawn. This book is considered by many Star Wars fans as the book that launched the Expanded Universe before Disney took control over the franchise.
