‘Nice That He’s Back’
I felt the Star Wars franchise missed a trick when it ignored this author’s Heir To The Empire trilogy, and Thrawn was the ‘big bad’ in those books.
Well, he’s back, and probably in a canon-approved format now.
But, in an effort to make him the central character and round out the backstory, it seems we’ve got a book of backstory. And it’s interesting enough... But even though it tries to move into ‘not everyone in the Empire was bad’ territory, it doesn’t really succeed.
