    Description

    New York Times best seller

    Discover Thrawn's origins within the Chiss Ascendancy in the first book in an epic new Star Wars trilogy from best-selling author Timothy Zahn.

    Beyond the edge of the galaxy lies the Unknown Regions: chaotic, uncharted, and near impassable, with hidden secrets and dangers in equal measure. And nestled within its swirling chaos is the Ascendancy, home to the enigmatic Chiss and the Nine Ruling Families that lead them. The peace of the Ascendancy, a beacon of calm and stability, is shattered after a daring attack on the Chiss capital that leaves no trace of the enemy. 

    Baffled, the Ascendancy dispatches one of its brightest young military officers to root out the unseen assailants. A recruit born of no title, but adopted into the powerful family of the Mitth and given the name Thrawn. With the might of the Expansionary Fleet at his back, and the aid of his comrade Admiral Ar'alani, answers begin to fall into place. But as Thrawn's first command probes deeper into the vast stretch of space his people call the Chaos, he realizes that the mission he has been given is not what it seems. And the threat to the Ascendancy is only just beginning.

    Good book, but too many audio effects

    I love the Thrawn books and Marc Thompson is a brilliant voice actor, but overuse of totally unnecessary audio effects make it difficult to listen to this audiobook. The distortion effect used during the dialogue in Chapter 1 is so heavy, I had to go back and listen to it again - twice - because I found it hard to understand the character dialogue. Not the kind of experience listeners enjoy, and if Thrawn wasn’t in my top five favorite Star Wars characters, I would have given up and returned the book.

    Hey producers,guess what! Marc Thompson is super talented! Why not let his voice do the work, yes?

    Thrawn

    I miss the Thrawn of old,but I must admit Zahn is the only person to write a reboot of Thrawn. i don’t like Disney bastardizing my EU but whatever. I do love Thrawn and I’ll take it. I unfortunately must say my Star Wars book library ends with this Thrawn series. I have DAMN near every EU Star Wars book to date. I do not like the direction Disney is taking Star Wars and I am not excited for anything new. I really hate watching Disney ruin my old EU characters and wish they would leave them alone. Actually I wouldn’t mind seeing the original Lucasfilm LTD team and George Lucas finish out the Sword of Jedi series that was just about to start. Hell give us back our EU and let us pick the Star Wars we want.

    The audio can be really hard to hear

    In chapter one there is a spot that makes it really hard to hear, with them talking in a space suit... if they can get ride of the distant sounding once, I would love this story even more.

    Zahn does it again!

    I've been a Thrawn fan since 1990 when Timothy Zahn introduced this amazing artistic tactician to the Star Wars community. I admit that I was extremely disappointed his original story was all but eradicated when Disney hit the reset switch on the sequel era, but I rejoiced when they brought Thrawn back into the story in the animated series "Star Wars: Rebels" The Thrawn trilogy gave us the tales of Thrawn's meteoric rise through the ranks of the Empire, as well as his first encounter with Anakin Skywalker (Minor Spoiler: That scene is also in this new book, but told from the opposite viewpoint - Continuity: I love it!), and later a mission with Darth Vader. This new story takes us further back into Thrawn's past, giving us a much deeper insight into this genius warrior, including his origins, as well as a greater look at the amazingly complex politics of the Chiss Ascendancy (if you thought it was convoluted on this planet, we're rank amateurs, compared to the Chiss!) All in all, the newer Thrawn novels have given very little to regret the loss of the originals from the Legends timeline, in my opinion. As we still don't know what became of Thrawn after Rebels, I'm quite happy to think that perhaps down the line, with the next books of the "Thrawn Ascendancy" trilogy, we might even get a look at what came next for him. Marc Thompson also delivers a stellar performance, although his little girl voices are a bit less than authentic - but I find that quite understandable. From the moment I began this book, I didn't want to stop it. That said, I hope you enjoy it at least half as much as I did.

    Disappointing but not awful

    I love the 1990s Thrawn series, and the more recent Thrawn stuff was decent. this one though... it's just starting to diminish. His charachter is not the same! He killed an officer for failing him in the original series. in this series he is getting coloring supplies for children and trying to avoid violence at all cost. not the same guy.

    Sadly missed the mark

    I had high hopes for this book, it was the first and only book I had ever preordered. The story felt rushed, and went places that left me wondering why, the story also seemed out of sorts, with all the past Thrawn books you get used to Timothy Zahn’s jumping around through time but this ones was to much. It tried to be a cleaver and smart but it felt like it tried to hard.

    Marc Thompson is one of my favorite performers, and with this book and all the different species the extreme use of different voices made it hard to listen to. With the adding of young girls into the story as much as Timothy did made for a tuff audio book and made me constantly want to skip sections.

    I will add star wars book are my favorite, I own 24 of them. Timothy Zahn is a top author of mine, Marc Thompson is if not one of the best voice actors out there and Thrawn is up with the greatest characters in star wars, it’s just this book was a disappointment and inspired me to write my first full review, which I didn’t want to write because I love Timothy and Marc.

    Timothy Zahn the one who can write Grand Admiral Thrawn

    Super excited to get some back story of Thrawn. He has become my favorite Empire character, sorry Lord Vader. Timothy Zahn is a great story teller!

    A very boring story with uneven volume

    the story was not very exciting at all but the real problem with this novel is the unevenness of the volume. the difference between the narration and the speaker's volume, particularly thrawn, makes it nearly impossible to listen to at a set volume

    Thrawn, how I have missed you!

    It's been a while since I last picked up a Star Wars book...I gave up early in the post-Yuuzhan Vong era, but I read pretty much everything before that. Zahn is without a doubt the shining star of the pre-Disney days, and I'm so excited he's carrying the torch now, too. Thrawn is a fantastic character and the Chiss are a fascinating race. I am so glad I listened to this book.

    I want the next one already!

    I can't wait for book 2, it was so refreshing to see some really great expanded universe lore with thrawn at the center again.

    Excellent!

    In every way :) Marc Thompson is the best narrator. Timothy Zahn as always spinning the best most interesting stories around Thrawn and the Chiss Ascendancy 💙

    Spannend und komplex ... Mindestens 2 mal hören!

    Nach Timothy Zahn's klassischen 5 Thrawn-Bücher und der neuen Thrawn Trilogy hat er auch mit dem ersten Buch seiner Thrawn's Vorgeschichte erzählenden Trilogy wieder ein sehr spannendes und qualitativ hochwertiges Werk erschaffen, welches einen gelungenen Auftakt für diese darstellt. Besonders die Hörbuch-Edition, gesprochen vom absolut genialen Marc Thompson lohnt sich zu hören ... mehrmals ... was auch zu empfehlen ist: Aufgrund der beiden parallelen Handlungsstränge (einer in der Vergangenheit, einer in der Gegenwart), in denen viele Charaktere ebenfalls paralell auftauchen und die auf einander aufbauen, passierte es mir hin und wieder, die Orientierung zu verlieren und so die beiden Story-Lines zu verwechseln. Aus diesem Grund ist es auch empfehlenswert das Hörbuch nicht mit mehrtägigen Pausen durchzuhören – das steigert das Verwirrungspotential noch mehr. Wenn man die Geschichte schon kennt, passiert das bei einem zweiten (ebenfalls sehr empfehlenswerten) Durchhören aber nicht mehr so schnell und man versteht außerdem manche Zusammenhänge zwischen den gegenwärtigen und vergangenen Ereignissen besser. Diese Komplexität könnte womöglich einige Hörer abschrecken – tut sie dies nicht, dann spreche ich für dich/Sie eine uneingeschränkte Kaufempfehlung aus!

    That was one of the best I've ever encountered

    Thrawn is a very special thing for himself. Not just in the start wars universe. but that story did fit spot on and I can't wait for the other parts. the voice acting was standing.

    Super und sehr empfehlenswert

    Eine sehr gute Story (vielmehr mehrere Stories) und ebenfalls sehr gute Sprecher. Ich hatte allerdings gehofft, dass die Geschichte noch ein wenig weiterzurückgeht. Interessant wäre, mehr von Thrawn zu erfahren bevor er zum Militär kam. Oder mehr Rückblicke in dieser Zeit. Auch mehr persönliche Hintergründe über ihm und seine Familie. Man erfährt nur sehr kurz etwas über eine Schwester. Dazu schreibe ich aber nicht. Fazit: Sehr empfehlenswert. Ich bin auf die Fortsetzungen sehr gespannt.
