Past, Present and Future in a tapestry.

Timothy Zahn is one of the few authors in Star Wars who can push the GFFA from space-fantasy to real nuts-and-bolts science fiction. And doing it with Thrawn is just amazing.... Thrawn continues to delight in his SherlockHolmesian brilliance - he's a great character in canon *AND* in "Legends!"

This story serves as a pre-prequel to Thrawn (that is if Thrawn is a prequel to this) - showing us Anakin and Thrawn's first meeting. Weaving their adventure (along with Padme) with the "present day" story of Vader and Thrawn dealing with an enemy in the wild regions - in a territory where their first meeting occurred. It's deftly done.
