Grand Admiral Thrawn has made a place for himself in the Empire – against all the odds. Yet he still faces struggles – such as those trying to steal his funding for his TIE-defender program. Stealing in the bureaucratic sense, that is.
In a (planned) gamble to access this funding, Thrawn has agreed to a bet. He will solve a problem that others have struggled to deal with – or he will lose this funding. In true Thrawn fashion, he quickly proves that the problem is not as everyone else assumed.
Oh, Thrawn, don’t ever change. (But seriously, I’m not even sure he can). Thrawn: Treason is every bit the story I had been hoping for, and I regret that it took me this long to get around to reading it.
I adored the politics in this book and all the careful planning that came to the surface. Likewise, I was pleasantly surprised by all the perspectives this novel offered. Some were obvious appearances, but others were less expected, and I liked the change.
This book left me with so many questions. Questions upon questions! Though it also answered some questions – mainly those circulating the conclusion of Star Wars: Rebels (if you haven’t watched that show, please consider it!).
I think I will need to set aside some time to read the next Thrawn trilogy, and I think I need to do so ASAP. Not only do I have questions (as already stated), but I feel (hope) that it might become relevant to the movie/show universe very soon.
