Star Wars: Thrawn Ascendancy. Greater Good (2021)

Thrawn has made some high ranking enemies within his own people, who send him on a mission destined to fail. 

With the triumph of Thrawn’s latest victory for the Chiss resting on his shoulders, he and his allies find themselves in a race to save the Chiss Ascendancy from an unseen enemy that has yet to be extinguished. But the enemy is almost as clever as the Sherlockian-like Thrawn, opting to further the rifts between the ruling families, rather than attack them among the stars in battle.

The Chiss Expansionary Defense Fleet sweeps across the remaining groups of the defeated Nikardun, unaware that behind  Nikardun lies a larger villain, Jixtus, pulling the strings. This second novel revolves around an elaborate plan devised by Jixtus to attempt to incite a civil war between the Nine Dominating Houses and the Forty Great Houses of  Chiss Ancestors. Meanwhile, for reasons  not always obvious, Thrawn’s enemies inside and outside the Mitth family are still plotting to bring him down.

“You may be intimidated by the size of the Greater Good book, but Timothy Zahn has a real genius for writing prose that keeps you hooked with his nimble style.”

The Book Guide® Editor

While the Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy boasts the fan-favorite Thrawn as the central character, his own story often takes the backseat in terms of narrative structure. Thrawn is the sun of the trilogy and the books are simply exploring the characters that are caught in his orbit.

The plots that do directly relate to Thrawn feel lackluster — we’re told about his flaws, but they never fully come into play. 


Greater Good has many of the hallmarks of Mr. Zahn’s earlier Thrawn novels. It’s elaborately plotted, telling one story in the present and a related one from the past in alternating chapters. Once again, there are some strong supporting characters, most notably Senior Captain Lakinda of the Xodlak family. And the story builds to a solid finish with an interesting cliffhanger.
