An except of Timothy Zahn's new Thrawn: Alliance novel is available at Starwars.com:
“I have sensed a disturbance in the Force.”
Emperor Palpatine paused, stretching out his thoughts to the two men standing before his throne, awaiting their reactions.
A Chiss Grand Admiral, a strategic and tactical genius. A Sith Lord, ruthless and powerful in the Force.
I know I'm excited. Zahn has been writing great books for 35 years, I expect this will continue.
