In association with Powells Books, Timothy Zahn talks all thing Thrawn with his Del Rey editor Tom Hoeler on 4th September at 5.00pm Pacific, 8.00pm Eastern, 1.00am GMT. As the 30th anniversary of Heir to the Empire approaches and with Thrawn: Ascendancy Chaos Rising fresh on the shelves it should be a fascinating discussion, and you can register here to watch it as a live webinar via Zoom.

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. Discover Thrawn’s origins within the Chiss Ascendancy in CHAOS RISING (STAR WARS: THRAWN ASCENDANCY #1) (Del Rey), the first book in an epic new Star Wars trilogy from bestselling author Timothy Zahn. Zahn will be joined in conversation by Tom Hoeler, editor at Del Rey Books.

Stay tuned as we will be dropping reviews of both the Chaos Rising novel and audiobook into the site in early September.
