The story takes place between 11BBY - 2BBY. Following none other than the Chiss himself, it shows how Thrawn rose through the ranks of the Empire and eventually became the Grand Admiral we all know and love!
With many old beloved characters mixed with the new, this book is one praised my fans, casual and hardcore alike!
I have been looking forward to this...
As always, here are a few questions to get the discussions rolling!
-Like many other Star Wars novels, Thrawn had changes of perspectives. This one, following Thrawn's and Arihnda's stories as they eventually converge. Did this make the story hard to understand? Did Price's story steal too much focus from the Grand Admiral's?
-Thrawn, the Pantoran with an eye condition. How did you feel he was handled? It is no doubt that he seems a lot different in Rebels. Did this story nail the interpretation of Thrawn? What of his interactions and actions with other characters in this book? Diving into his mind, seeing his thinking and reasoning, did this improve your read? From reading body language to formulating plans, this story sure had tons of it.
-What about the other main characters in the story?
How did you think he was handled? If you were a fan of his Legends counterpart, how did you think he compared? Did the character differ in any notable accounts? If so, were they an improvement or not? The evolution of his relationship with Thrawn was one of the more prominent points of the story. From how he feared Thrawn at the beginning, to becoming his most trusted friend.
What about her? Her story dives deep into the Imperial political side of things. All started from Price Mining, as she worked her way up the Imperial ladder and eventually joined the war machine. Did this potrayal of her improve Rebels for you? Or her character as a whole?
I'd like to add that there are a myriad of other questions riddled in this book. But not to clutter up the OP, they'll be posted as replies instead.
Thanks for your participation for the poll about a week ago too!Sorry about the late post today, it has been busy.
