By Ciaran Duggan,
An excerpt from the upcoming Star Wars Thrawn novel has been exclusively unveiled by the Daily Express today.
The British-based newspaper company have released an extract from the opening chapter of the novel which describes the very first moment in which the future Grand Admiral was introduced to the Star Wars galaxy.
Take a read of a passage from the opening chapter down below:
After all the trouble the castaway had created on the planet surface, Eli had expected him to put up a terrific fight against his captors. To his surprise, he apparently surrendered to the stormtroopers without any resistance at all.
Perhaps he was taken by surprise. More likely, he knew when resistance was futile.
At least Eli understood now why Parck wanted him along. The prisoner’s cargo crates were labeled with a Sy Bisti variant. If he spoke the language itself—and if it was the only language he spoke—the Imperials would need a translator.
The rest of the online extract can be found in the 'Entertainment' section of the Daily Express website.
Star Wars Thrawn, written by Timothy Zahn, will be hit shelves from April 6 2017.
