From the Back Cover

The fate of the Chiss Ascendancy hangs in the balance in the epic finale of the Star Wars: Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy from bestselling author Timothy Zahn.

For thousands of years the Chiss Ascendancy has been an island of calm, a center of power, and a beacon of integrity. It is led by the Nine Ruling Families, whose leadership stands as a bulwark of stability against the Chaos of the Unknown Regions.

But that stability has been eroded by a cunning foe who winnows away trust and loyalty in equal measure. Bonds of fidelity have given way to lines of division among the families. Despite the efforts of the Expansionary Defense Fleet, the Ascendancy slips closer and closer to civil war.

The Chiss are no strangers to war. Their mythic status in the Chaos was earned through conflict and terrible deeds, some long buried. Until now. To ensure the Ascendancy’s future, Thrawn will delve deep into its past, uncovering the dark secrets surrounding the ascension of the First Ruling Family. But the truth of a family’s legacy is only as strong as the legend that supports it. Even if that legend turns out to be a lie.

To secure the salvation of the Ascendancy, is Thrawn willing to sacrifice everything? Including the only home he has ever known?

1.0 out of 5 stars Scuffed copy, probably used or mishandled
By Amazon Customer on 10 January 2022
I've heard nothing but good things about this book and was looking forward to finally reading it, but I won't be keeping this particular copy! When I buy something in "New" condition, I EXPECT IT TO BE THAT WAY, not scuffed, bent and scratched as if it's been used as a doorstop at Amazon's distribution centre! No chance this was just down to the cardboard packaging either, not to this extent. I appreciate the 'green' packaging, but not the lack of care before it reaches that stage.

Looks like I'm going to Waterstones for this one, as they've got it at the same price. No doubt it'll be in better condition too.
