Star Wars: Thrawn Ascendancy Trilogy Comes to a Close With Lesser Evil

In a surprising bit of news given that today is April Fools day, Del Rey have announced the title and release date of the final book in the Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy, written by Timothy Zahn.

The book will be titled Thrawn Ascendancy: Lesser Evil. The trilogy details Thrawn’s early career in the Chiss ascendency, beyond the Outer Rim, before he appears within the Star Wars galaxy we know in the 2017-2019 Thrawn trilogy and Star Wars: Rebels.

 

The official announcement is below:

 

 

Del Rey made a big point in subsequent tweets stating that this was definitely not an April Fools prank (Zahn mentioned on his Facebook page that this happened to be the day a slot was available on StarWars.com). It’s still a big surprise though, given the November 16th 2021 release date, which is less than seven months after the second book in the trilogy, Greater Good, due out later this month on April 27th.

 

 

With the first book released in September 2020 that means this entire trilogy has been released in  a span of less than 15 months! Timothy Zahn obviously has a story to tell and we want to hear it! Thrawn is always a fun and fascinating character to read, so more content with him is never a bad sign.
