First Editions of Thrawn Ascendancy: Chaos Rising Pay Homage to the Grand Admiral – First Look

A special printing of the next Star Wars book by Timothy Zahn will include unique blue accents and edges.

In a sea of identical white-armored stormtroopers and stoic, gray-uniformed Imperial officers, the Chiss tactician Grand Admiral Thrawn stands out for the blue tinge of his skin and his glowing red eyes. But before he climbed the ranks of the Empire, Thrawn made his home in the Unknown Regions, thriving among the Nine Ruling Families of the enigmatic Chiss Ascendancy.
