  If your a fan of Thrawn in Legends, you won't be disappointed.

One of the best parts of this book was the character development of Eli. He came a long way.

I would almost recommend the audio book over reading this book. I switched to the audio book for a trip and it was fantastic. One thing it really brought out was Thrawn's inner dialogue as he asses people. Didn't come through the same way while I was reading it.

  I liked Eli as well, and the ending for him was really good... I'm excited to read the Sequel that has been announced...

I was a huge fan of the original Zahn trilogy, and I love how he was able to keep the character of Thrawn intact, but yet still adjust him to fit the new canon as well...

I also really liked Arihnda Pryce in this, and how much we background and development we got for her character...

  I was unsure about this book early on, but once Thrawn joins the military, and you start figuring out Price, it gets really really good.

I agree with Phogbear, that the journey that Eli takes (and as Raist said, Price too) is excellent. This is some of the best character development in all of Star Wars.

I also second the recommendation of the audio book. They way they present Thrawn's inner dialogue is excellent. There's one point where the audio book is hard to listen too (they do a weird modulation to an alien's voice that is like fingernails on a chalkboard), but that doesn't last long.

I really hope to see more of Eli in the sequal, because, while I like Thrawn a lot, he was my favorite character.

An excellent book, 2nd best of the Star Wars books I've read so far (coming in just behind Leia, Princess of Alderaan). 5 stars.
