Thrawn and his allies race to save the Chiss Ascendancy from an unseen enemy in the second book in the epic Star Wars: Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy from bestselling author Timothy Zahn.
Thrawn's latest triumph still rests newly on his shoulders. He has led the Chiss to victory and brought glory to the House of Mitth, but the true threat to the Ascendancy has not yet been extinguished. Their foes do not send threats or ultimatums, do not mass ships on the edge of the Chaos. Their weapons come cloaked in smiles and generosity: Gifts offered freely. Services granted unconditionally.
Across the Ascendancy, seemingly inconsequential events could herald the doom of the Chiss. As Thrawn and the Expansionary Defense Fleet rally to uncover the plot, they discover a chilling truth: Rather than invade Chiss capitals or pillage resources, their enemy strikes at the very foundation of the Ascendancy, seeking to widen the rifts between the Nine Ruling Families and the Forty Great Houses below. As rivalry and suspicion sow discord among allies, each warrior must decide what matters most to them: the security of their family or the survival of the Ascendancy itself.

Thrawn has made some high ranking enemies within his own people, who send him on a mission destined to fail. However as Thrawn says "the odds are never impossible, just unfavourable". Though there is an even bigger threat, that the Chriss are not even aware of.
I liked this book, but I did prefer the first book. Though this one does set the stage for an attack on the Ascendancy. I am really looking forward to see what happens next. What is it that causes Thrawn to finally leave his people, and what family secrets are hinted at the end of thus book?
We get some of Thrawn, a far bit of political fiddling around and another new alien from the Chaos region. This book, like the last does nod to some of Thrawns other adventures.
Overall enjoyable and worth reading.
Apart from that it seemed good, interesting.
I am surprised that Thrawn did not complain about the trap set on him and Springhawk. It looked obvious that the info on Thrawn's mission was passed to the enemy by someone high in the Chiss power structures. There are other unwrapped plots yet so I hope they will be concluded in the next part.
