Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good is the second book in Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn Ascendancy series and his fifteenth Star Wars novel overall. As with all of Zahn’s books, we are treated to dramatic battle scenes, dynamic characters, and more understanding of the Star Wars universe. In this book, we get to see more of Thrawn’s insight and cunning as well as a better view into the Chiss home worlds, the Chiss people, and family politics. This latest chapter of the Thrawn saga is a fast-paced novel involving new characters that were not featured in the movies. Zahn continues to expand the Star Wars universe in exciting ways.
